I recently spent some time in Mexico, specifically Cancun and Tulum. Before my visit I knew I wanted to do lots of adventure activities and began my research. I came across Cancun Riviera Maya Tours which is a tour provider and travel agency that only partners with the best tour companies throughout Cancun and the Riviera Maya. I emailed the company and they were very quick in answering all my questions. I also chose them since they provided private shuttles and has over a dozen of awesome tours; parasailing, snorkeling, swim with dolphins, scuba diving, boat tours, ruin tours and so much more!
Depending on each tour they have morning or afternoon tours. I opted for the morning snorkeling tour and parasailing which can be done at the same spot. Four our day tour, Cancun Riviera Maya Tours partnered with Total Snorkel Cancun.
Reef Turtle Encounter & Shipwreck Snorkel Tour
The day started early with a pick up from our hotel at 8:15am. Our driver arrived on time and the snorkeling area was roughly 20 minutes away. In some cases, the driver may need to pick up other customers on the way. Once we arrived, we were greeted by our tour guides. They prepped us with our life jacket and snorkeling gear. The tour is for all ages even for someone who does not really know how to swim, like my boyfriend. =)
We jumped into the boat and once we arrived at our first snorkeling area we jumped right into the clear turquoise water! The water was perfect temperature! We snorkeled around and saw lots of beautiful reefs, fishes and some Mayan history under the sea!
We jumped back into the boat and went to our second snorkeling spot. This area was mostly in search for turtles! Luckily we found one but it kept swimming away from me. One of our tour guides was able to get a shot with the turtle!
The last and third snorkeling spot was the shipwreck. It was really cool to see an old ship in the middle of the ocean and apparently the history of the shipwreck is due to a hurricane.
I had plans to go parasailing after our snorkeling tour but since the weather was not the best it was cancelled. I was a bit bummed since I have never gone parasailing before. It really looks fun and I definitely would like to do it next time!
The company offers private and shared shuttle transfers from Cancun Airport to your hotel. We were able to get a private shuttle from Cancun to Tulum and Tulum to Cancun Airport. Our drivers were always on time and I highly recommend reserving your private shuttles especially if traveling in large groups.
I had such a great time with Cancun Riviera Maya Tours! One of our guides recorded and took photos of us throughout the entire time. The snorkeling tour was a total of an hour and a half and they even provided each group a printed photo. The entire process was efficient and all of our tour guides were knowledgable and fun! They made sure we enjoyed out tour! Take a look at their services and book your next adventure with Cancun Riviera Maya Tours!
