I was skeptical this was worth the price but it definitely was. My family was 4 people, and there were two other groups of two in our tour group. So there was 8 of us, and I counted 5 guides helping us! The zip lines were super fun, but also easy enough for my 6 year old to do. The guides said that they had kids as young as 3 do it - but the kids do need to be brave / adventurous. The rock climbing and rappelling was a little lame... yes, we did rock climb and rappel, and it WAS fun, but it was up and down a stone tower - not a natural cliff or anything like that. There were two cenotes, one open to the air and one underground. We had done cenotes before, but not with snorkels and I was amazed to see how much there was to see. The underground cenote was AMAZING. It was nice that there was only the 8 of us, and our guide had us follow him while he shined a light around so that we could see the features. The tacos at the end were good, and the beer that came with it was a nice treat. The bugs were INTENSE, but they gave us bug spray. The ATV ride was also fun. My only complaint is that there weren't any seat belts on the ATV part of the fun so my daughter hit her head on the seat back in front of her, since they didn't warn us to be careful about bracing ourselves against that. She was fine, though, and that was just a small bump in an otherwise great trip.
I am always hesitant booking tours but this one more than exceeded my expectations! First off, the guides are incredible. They were entertaining, experienced, and most of all focused on safety every step of the way. We had a larger group that ranged from children to older adults and I think everyone was enjoying themselves every step of the way. The zip lining was well above average and the guides let you know when you could have a little more 'fun' on a certain line. As a bonus, you have to cross suspension type bridges between some platforms that keep you engaged instead of waiting around. The rock climbing was actually more challenging than I imagined but it added to the adventurous nature of the morning. A big highlight for me was the small group snorkeling in the cenotes. Many of the public cenotes are overly crowded and detract from the beauty but this was private no more than 5-8 ppl in the water and they let you explore at your pace. The cenotes were gorgeous and exceeded my expectations.
On a final note, when leaving the tour we asked one of the guides if there was a better option to get back into the city besides a cab. They let us know a bus drives down the highway every once in awhile that is much much cheaper than a cab. HOWEVER one of the guides then waited with us roadside for 10-15min! until the bus came so he could make sure we got on the right one. That is above and beyond in my book.
All in all I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tulum. It captures many of the highlights of Tulum and is a fun adventurous way to start your morning I would recommend the morning to avoid the heat!.
Great excursion! Raoul was a fabulous guide - relaxed, patient, competent and entertaining. Safety was top priority, the ziplines were awesome. Our group was aged 20 - 50 and the course was a nice balance of challenging but not too challenging for everyone. Beautiful cenote visits at the end of the tour and a simple but fabulous lunch in the forest. Love the homemade bush buggy they use to transport people in and out of the excursion! Its a bit of a rough ride but nothing to worry about and for me just added to experience. We did the morning tour and glad we did - it gets hot in the jungle, even in the morning.
Its about 11km south of Bahia Principe.Really easy to get to via colectivo but make sure the driver knows it is SELVA Maya, there is a similarly named place that he tried to drop us at. Highly recommended - do it!
This was a great tour. Fairly easy to find off main 307 Highway. Fun trip to the zip lines. We were transported from the entrance to the start of the zip lines for 4 miles in old Mercedes Army Transport Truck -a Mayan Roller Coaster for about 20 minutes there and at the end of the trip. All the tour guides were very friendly, learning your name, and very safety oriented. Zip lines were fun, snorkeling was amazing the in the cenotes, that were are part of the path used when discovering all the connections to Dos Ojos, for the world's largest cave. The pork and chicken tacos at the end were delicious. Make sure you bring money to tip the guides at the end of the trip - they deserved it!
Absolutely amazing, our guide Omar went above and beyond to make sure my family had a great time. My mother is older and not very athletic and the whole staff made sure that she was happy and comfortable while we did our adventures. She was able to watch us and really felt included. The cenotes were amazing, the landscape gorgeous, and staff was top notch. so worth it.
Fantastic day adventure. We were staying in Playa del Carmen and got the public bus to Selva Maya Eco Adventure Park which is located a few kilometres before Tulum. Alert the bus driver at the start of the journey and he will let you off right at the entrance. We were only in our family unit of three with two very friendly and competent guides. I had never zip lined and was very nervous about the heights and our safety. My fears were quickly allayed and I totally enjoyed the experience - and felt very safe. The entire day was action packed with the addition of rock climbing, rappelling and swimming. Exploring the cenotes was incredible. We were definitely ready for a rest and some lunch at the end of the adventure and this didn't disappoint either. We were informed by one of the guides to catch an ADO van back to Playa del Carmen. These travel both directions between Playa and Tulum and they will stop and pick you up from anywhere in between these destinations. We simply crossed the road and waited. If the van has space it will flash headlights when it sees you and pull over. These come every ten minutes at least and cost a fraction more than the bus. Would definitely recommend this adventure park for all.
We had a fantastic time at Selva Maya Eco Adventure Park. Deep in the jungle there are 9 zip-lines, 4 or 5 suspended bridges can't remember how many exactly, a climbing and abseiling wall and 2 cenotes. We enjoyed it all but particularly loved hanging upside down on the zip-lines and the denotes. One of the denotes is more open but has a rock you can jump off into the cenote. The other cenote is underground and is stunning. The cave is lit so you can see the beauty of the stalagmites and stalactites. We definitely recommend as its an authentic fun experience in natural surroundings. The lunch provided was great and the team are very proficient and friendly.
