TULUM RUINS - TULUM TOWN - CENOTE
You will ride quiet roads, forest trails & pueblo streets to see a variety of the natural attractions and local life that characterize Tulum.
The perfect way to explore is by bike, where we take you all over town making many stops full of culture & history - taking in a full historical tour of the ancient Mayan temples, a swim in the wonderful waters of a cenote, the tastiest tacos, the local heart of the village & the cosmopolitan town of today. You will also learn about Mayan traditions & beliefs, the art of native beekeeping and lots of other interesting tales of past & present.
We start the day early to arrive at the ruins before the crowds and take in the stunning views of the ocean & temples. Tulum is a 'must see' because of its amazing location, but having an expert guide you through the site makes a huge difference in understanding the motivations and reasons behind the structures and their exact location. Their are many eye-opening secrets behind Tulum's walls!
We then bike back into town for a tasty brunch of delicious tacos & fresh juice. Cycle through the streets of town to see how the locals live, get tips from your guide for where to sip coffee, eat, drink & dance or shop. At the far end of town we stop at a native Mayan bee farm, part of a foundation that works to re-introduce the harvesting of this bee's honey into the local economy. This is a surprising and enriching experience, made possible by the fact that the bees are stingless and very calm, posing no danger to us.
Finally, we will hit one of the local cenotes for a refreshing and well deserved swim! A great way to cool off, have some fun with jumps and swim in the restoring blue waters.
The tour is designed so that all can enjoy, with intervals of max. 20 minutes cycling on a comfortable urban bike between each stop. This is an insider's view of tulum, led by experienced & dedicated guides who share their love of nature, history & fun with you.
