SNORKELING & TULUM RUINS
This tour makes a great cruise shore excursion, or just a fun day out. You start with a non-stop air-conditioned ride to Tulum, where you can tour the ruins site. If you have time afterward, you can also go down to the beach below the ruins and swim.
After you've embraced the Mayan civilization at Tulum, we'll travel to Yal-Ku Lagoon, home of some of the best snorkeling in the Riviera Maya. Here in this calm and secluded lagoon, you will be able to go snorkeling with tons of tropical fish and coral. There are changing facilities, a snack bar, and lockers available at Yal-Ku.
Want to stay longer? No problem! You can stretch this to a full day tour if you want to spend some time on the beach, swim, have lunch, or swim at Tulum.
