What will you see?
Tulum (Maya: Too Loom - Walled City)
Tulum was a walled city, protected on one side by steep cliffs facing the sea and on the other by a wall of about 12 feet in height. Tulum served as a trading port. The ancient Maya name was ZAMA=City of Dawn or City of the Morning Star. The buildings that are visible on the site date from the Post-Classic period, around 1200 to 1500 A.D., and the city of Tulum was functioning at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards.
Go snorkeling at the lagoon of Yalkoo, a former natural Mayan harbor at the town of Akumal in the middle of the Riviera Maya, near Cancun and Playa del Carmen.. The lagoon is a caved in cave system, full of fish. You snorkel through canyons while observing different type of fish, like sergeant mayor, parrot fish, neon fish, angel fish and the occasional barracuda or turtle. I will guide you 1 hour through the lagoon before you leave for lunch.
After snorkeling, you can take a shower at the facilities before going to lunch at a beach restaurant close to the lagoon, with a beautiful view over the Caribbean Sea. You can choose between a typical Mexican lunch like fish or chicken tacos, fish filet with the fresh catch of the day, pasta or vegetarian lunch, one soda or lemonade is included. After lunch, you’ll drive back to the hotel.
