Best tour I’ve been on
Anike_T, Jan 2023
Pablo was the absolute best!! I’ve already recommended this experience to other people and I just went yesterday. I’d do it a million times if I could!

A Must in Tulum
Clay_K, Oct 2022
We had the pleasure of getting a private tour with Iber for the day and we had a blast. The snorkeling was beautiful and we saw all sorts of cool fish we had never seen before. The cenotes are an adventure you can’t get back home and it’s something we won’t forget. Once again a big shout out to Iber who did a great job of keeping it fun and educational. He was very knowledgeable and one of the best guides we have ever had.
Response from Host, Nov 2022

Cindy_P, May 2022
The cave is a very unique experience. Unfortunately, the snorkeling was a bit spoiled because of the seaweeds even though it is not their fault. Our guide was great. In general, the excursion seems a bit overpriced.

I loved how Carin was so knowledgeable about the area, conservation and her ability to help everyone on the tour. She is a treasure. The driver was efficient and helpful as well.

Morgan_B, Dec 2021
Karen was an amazing guide! She made the whole experience fun and relaxing. She explained everything we were doing and taught us about the Mayan culture’s connection to cenotes. The snorkeling is very beginner, but still fun for an experienced snorkeler. The real treasure of this tour is the cenote! Seriously once in a lifetime experience walking, climbing and swimming through the rivers/caverns that connect the cenote.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi Morgane, thanks a lot for your recommendation and your awesome review, I'm happy to read you had a fun and relaxing experience with our knowledgeable guide. I agree, the underground cenote experience is magical ! I'm glad you enjoyed it !
Leslie_S, Sept 2021
I gave this trip a 3 star because it was over priced and not enough WOW factor to justify the price. For starters the best part of the the adventure was the underground river. It was spectacular and a shame that I don't have pictures to share with others. The snorkeling was not even needed for this trip as it was extremely basic and elementary in nature. The lunch ( veggie burrito) was tasty, but not needed as part of the price!!! I actually ate it as a respectful gesture. I would suggest everyone including the company to just do the underground river adventure and call it a day. IT IS EXTREMELY OVERPRICED and I can't understand why it has such high ratings.

This is a can’t miss experience. Access to this cenote is limited so it’s never crowded and truly a unique experience.

Unique experience off the beaten path
Danielle_F, June 2021
Trip was great! Marie is amazing- so knowledgeable and helpful. If we were staying longer, we’d try to book another tour with her. We didn’t know what to expect with this one but the snorkeling was great and the cenote amazing. You actually get to swim/crawl/walk through the caves. Lunch after was delicious!

Snorkel & Cenote near Ya-Ku
Veda, May 2021
Our excursion was exceptional. We enjoyed our first snorkeling experience at Ya-Ku Lagoon. Marie, our tour guide, made sure that our experience was top notch. She was kind, knowledgeable, patient, and very in tune with nature and creating the ambiance we needed for the cenote experience. The food for lunch was provided by a local Mexican family. Very delicious!!!! 10 out of 10 would recommend.
Response from Host, May 2021
Thank you for your comment and recommendation. We are delighted you had such a good experience in the company of Marie. Thank you for choosing MExico Kan Tours.
