1. From Riviera Maya: Tulum Ruins and Cenote Mariposa Van Trip
Set off on an excursion to Tulum, a picturesque, must-see Maya site located next to the turquoise sea. Check out the soaring pyramid, solemn temples, and relaxing beaches before you head over to Cenote Mariposa for a swim in the aquamarine waters. Be picked up from your hotel, and make your way to the Tulum archaeological zone on the picturesque Caribbean coast. Embark on a comprehensive guided walk before enjoying some free time to explore the ancient solar observatory in the Temple of the Frescoes and the seaside Temple of the God of Wind. Snap once-in-a-lifetime photos of the Pyramid El Castillo and pristine white-sand beaches. Stop at Cenote Mariposa and dive on your way back to modern civilization. Immerse yourself in the cave's crystal-clear waters, the perfect place for a refreshing dip on a warm day. Look up to admire the lush jungle canopy as you swim, and try to spot the wildlife that lives among the branches.
