The Mayan Jungle Tour

mayan-jungl-tour
Mayan Ceremony

If you seek adventure, ecological and extreme tours, look for the Mayan Jungle tour, undoubtedly the most complete.
Here, you will fly on zip lines over the jungle, you will descend into a cenote, do rappel, swim in a cenote (sink hole) walk through muddy  places and shout inside the 4X4 vehicle that will lead you trough the Mayan jungle.

In addition you will take part in a Mayan purification ceremony with a real chaman and of course, you’ll be super happy at the end of the day. My favorite part? the underground river, its beautiful and breathtaking.

Although it seems that it is only for young people in our group there were two couples of  50 years who truly enjoyed the tour, not to mention that they did not know how they came to book this activity. It was great and I hope to return with my children very soon, just have to make shure that they weigh enough to ride the zip line and that they can rappel down the cenote, I do not stop recommending the Mayan Jungle Tour to all who ask me. ¿Where to go?  if I already know all the parks and archaeological sites in Cancun? Or what else there is to visit in Cancun? This is not new, but I think we should cultivate love for outdoor activities and educate people to practice tourism in places that care for nature, now that we live in a world as modern and inside intelligent buildings, it seems that we are going to end up as in the movie Wall-E! Don’t you think? Aaah one more thing, now you can do the  Mayan Jungle tour and visit Tulum at the same time.

 

Swim with dolphins in the Riviera Maya

Swim with Dolphins in RivieraMaya

The Riviera Maya covers the southern coast of Quintana Roo, from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. All along the Riviera Maya there are plenty of hotels and resorts that offer wonderful amenities and impressive infrastructure.

Because of Its location  sometimes is not easy to leave these complexes, but swimming with dolphins in the Riviera Maya is one of the most accessible since the dolphinarium in Puerto Aventuras offers free transportation from any hotel from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. No matter which of the three different dolphin interaction programs you choose, your not going to have to pay extra to get to the dolphinarium in Puerto Aventuras to do your activity.

But Puerto Aventuras is not the only option to realize your dream of swimming with dolphins. if you’re in the Riviera Maya, Xcaret and Xel-Ha have excellent swim with dolphins  programs that you can take during your visit to these parks. You just have to consider that in any of these alternatives is very important to book with time, because swimming with dolphins is an activity that is done in small groups so space is limited and you do not want to stay out.

Xplor Park

Swimming with Manatees

mantees
Manatees

Have you ever just wanted to go into the water and just hug one of these “Sea Cows”? Manatees are completely herbivorous aquatic mammals, Their scientific name is  Trichechus manatus, from the Greek tri (three) and chechus (nails) and from the Caribbean native manati (with teat). To me personally, they give me an immense feeling of tenderness, and to want to touch and hug them!!!

In general, the activity with manatees is very simple; you enter the water with them and feed them lettuce. It would seem that the activity has very little point but the activity is so gratifying!!!

Interaction with Manatees is possible at the dolphin centers of Isla Mujeres, Puerto Aventuras and in Xel-Ha. In your reservations for activities in Cancun and the Riviera Maya, don’t forget to mention them to find out which center is closest to you.
