    The people who are going to go there are going to enjoy a lot with this tour and this people. Swim at the cenote is amazing, the explanation of the guide too, and the costumer service is very good from the begining. We miss so much Mayan Riviera, thank you so much and good luck for the future.

    Hi, we are at home in Valencia, Spain, tunned and so happy with our holidays in Mexican Caribbean. We want to thank from here to Paco and Raul for their excellent attention in the tours we do. We visited cenotes and the Chichen Itza & Ekbalam ruins and Coba & Tulum also. Special mention for the guide Juan Manuel and for Mario, the driver. We met a good group the 3 days around Mayan Riviera. Thanks a lot for all and good luck.

    My best memory of Mexico is this tour. My friends told me about Chichen Itza. Even if the way is long, the sun is hard and there are a lot of tourist, this agency has all under control. We arrive soon, the organitation was perfect and we could visit 2 arqueological areas in the same day. Wonderfull!!!!

    I returned 3 days ago from the Mayan Riviera and I am so pleased that I booked this tour. It is absolutely great! You leave a bit early but when you get there, you get the whole site for you, no people around and the heat that starts to melt you around 11 which was about the time we left and the crowds started to arrive. Alvaro the guide, very very very good…very punctual , formal, overall, an excellent tour. I truly recommend Mayan Riviera Tours 100%. Thank you so much Alvaro and Raul for the tour. It`s a pitty I wasn`t able to book more tours! Regards

    Hi, I`m planning to travel on June. I`ve read the reviews and everything sound great. What catches my attention is the everybody mentions that you arrive early at the ruins to have them to yourselves. That`s says very good things about your organization . Apparently the guides really get into their character and i`m eager to get there to visit all this magical places. See you soon!

    A dreamy trip! And Alvaro and Diego made it even better. Thank you for being who you are, funny, gentlemen and the effort you put into your job. If we ever decide in coming back, we will book once again with you for sure just because the Mayan Tour and the Chichen Itza tours were an unforgettable experience. Once again…thank you!!!

    Thank you for everything. It`s a shame that the tour seemed so short but it still was great! As a tip, be sure to wear light color clothing and don’t wear hot pants or tight tank tops lol! The mosquitoes will go get you! The guide at the driver (Sergio and Jose Luis) were very nice and professionals. This is a company you can definitely trust in and I will for sure recommend it.

The Cenote Ik Kil is located a few kilometers from Chichen Itza. In can take a refreshing swim. It has a depth of 60m and from the surface to the water is a height of 25 meters.
