What we will do
  • From the pier in Cozumel we take the ferry to Playa del Carmen on the Yucatán coast.
  • Here, we board our coach and start a scenic tour of the Riviera Maya to discover the places and scenery that saw this great civilisation grow and expand.
  • We then embark on a walking excursion in the jungle along the so-called “cenote trail” looking for the most beautiful cenotes in the area. These are large sinkholes filled with crystal-clear waters that guaranteed the prosperity of the Mayan empire for centuries.
  • We go for a first swim in cenote La Cueva, named after its magnificent natural archway.We then walk to cenote Kay* a spectacular cave adorned with stalactites and inhabited by small fish that delicately remove all skin impurities. An exclusive beauty treatment courtesy of Mother Nature!
  • Our third stop is the incredible cenote Azul where we remain enchanted by the blue of its deep waters overlooked by lush emerald-green vegetation.
  • We then move on to our fourth and last natural pool - cenote Naval. A large 500 metre cave which we access canoeing through the mangroves.
  • A typical Mayan lunch awaits us at the end of our excursion: we learn how to make traditional tortillas and enjoy them with pibil chicken and poc-chuc pork and a large variety of side dishes, dips and guacamole accompanied by flavoured waters and coffee.
