Don’t hesitate! This tour is as amazing as it sounds!! We made some great memories thanks to Salvador. His vast knowledge of both Tulum history and Mexico in general provided us with a fun and informative experience. We were able to see a ton of sting rays and a few big sea turtles during the snorkeling portion of the trip. We will definitely book another Best Maya tour next time we find ourselves in Mexico


Our day was even more than anticipated. Salvador gave us unique history of the ruins and was never in a hurry. We were able to stop and take our time viewing all the beautiful overlooks and artifacts. Our turtle outing was breathtaking. The water was warm and we saw turtles and manta reys. We had enough time to explore and relax in the warm ocean. I highly recommend Salvador for a wonderful tour guide


Awesome day! Salvador was so knowledgeable and personable. Well worth the money!! We swam with Sea turtles, explored the reef learning about coral and different species of fish. Several stingrays were seen as well. WONDERFUL experience!


It was a wonderful day, worth every penny.
We swam with sea turtles, learned about the reef and the different species of fish. Spent some time in TULUM sightseeing. It was absolutely incredible.


We spent the day with Salvador touring the Tulum ruins, snorkeling in the beautiful Caribbean Sea and eating a delicious lunch at El Capitán. Salvador was very knowledgeable on the ruins, Mayan life and all the wildlife in the sea. We swam with rays, turtles and even saw an eel. We highly recommend this tour and hope you are fortunate to receive Salvador Ocampo as your guide.
