Swimming and snorkeling in a cenote in Yucatán is to admire a natural underwater gallery and be part of the game of lights and shadows; a wonderful spectacle of nature. This incredible adventure, and many more, you can experience with the expert guides of Mayan Ecotours.
It is said that “great people make great companies.” In this case the passion, sensitivity and love of nature by its founder, Connie Leal, is transmitted to each member of the team. Originally from Hidalgo and with lengthy experience as a bilingual nature guide, Connie’s commitment and vivacity is contagious. Mayan Ecotours provides visitors with activities in contact with the natural beauty of Yucatan in a respectful and sustainable way, as well as closeness to the richness of the current Maya culture: visiting their homes and their unique way of life is what gave birth to Mayan Ecotours.
Since 2006, the company has offered ecotourism tours and nature activities, some of them in combination with archaeological sites. Their bilingual guides, with more than 15 years of experience, are certified and specialized in adventure sports, nature, history, and archaeology. What makes them unique? They provide you with the equipment for the various activities; but in addition to this, for a better experience, their guides accompany you in the cenotes or in in the caves; while you rappel down, or walk their passageways filled with amazing stalactites and stalagmites; in the estuaries while kayaking – maybe for the first time – they take care that you do it safely. At the end of the day, they become accomplices of your adventures.
The tours include transportation, two guides (a nature guide and an archaeological guide), the necessary equipment to carry out the different activities, and personalized service. On the star tour, Visit Uxmal + Snorkel in a Cenote (you don’t need to know how to swim), you will also eat in a Maya house where you prepare your own tortillas with firewood (or in a hacienda with Yucatecan cuisine).
Mayan Ecotours offers snorkeling tours, free diving, zip line, slackline, rappel, kayak, underwater photography and cave tours. All of them can be adapted to your needs.
Now Mayan Ecotours offers you a new experience: development and operation of outdoor activities and games with techniques based on positive psychology; an inner expedition, a Maya rebirth.
In packages with accommodation you can enjoy the colonial style Hotel Del Peregrino, located in the historic center of Mérida with full breakfast included. Are you ready to sign up for ecotourism, adventure sports, or an internal expedition with your new companions?
