On Friday you’ll have the chance to explore beautiful cenotes on an optional group tour.
Cenotes are natural underground water springs that form due to a limestone collapse and leaves groundwater exposed, which creates a colorful and wondrous view. Navigate through breathtaking caves and caverns and discover the beauty of stalactites and stalagmites as you explore the ancient rock formations up close! Get the chance to snorkel through an incredible lagoon brimming with aquatic life.

Mexico has some of the best beaches in the world. With pristine white sand and incredibly clear water, you’re sure to feel at peace and in awe. Relax on the beach, enjoy one of Maroma’s many water sports, or take a short day trip to Playa del Carmen’s city center to explore. Spend your Saturday relaxing in utopia.
Sunday involves an optional tour to the Mayan Ruins of Tulum, Mexico. Tulum is about 45 minutes away, but definitely worth the small trip. These ruins are a stunning site with a rich history. This archaeological fortress overlooks the Caribbean Sea, which gives way to beautiful cliffside views. El Castillo is the main Tulum Pyramid and is a must-see. There’s also the Temple of the Frescoes, with beautiful paintings and carvings, The Great Palace, and the House of the Halach Uinic. These well-preserved ruins will help you learn how the Mayans lived, the building of Tulum, and the reason for its abandonment. You won’t want to miss this beautiful look into history.
After your optional day at the ruins, we’ll end our trip how we began. A top shelf open bar and lavish three course dinner will be available to you at the Maroma.
