On this tour you will:
Touch the dolphins
Kiss the dolphins
Do a dorsal tow with the dolphins

Each session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience.

Our professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you. Photo prices vary based on the package you purchase.

  Have fun while driving your ATV into Mexico's past and explore the land and its secrets. You, as a solo driver or with your passenger, will receive simple instructions before you head out safari-style into the wilds of the Yucatan. Midway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen is a perfect area for exploration. Your guide will be able to point out the native flora found in the jungle that you will visit first. You'll have to keep your eyes peeled for the native animals that roam here, the spider monkeys, deer, and beautiful tropical birds like parrots and toucans.

Then, put your foot to the pedal and hit the beach. A 'fast' run along the water's edge ends with a refreshing swim before heading back. Your tour isn't quite over, though, because this tour operator figures you've worked up an appetite and he's ready with some delicious Mexican snacks served with beer and soft drinks.

The finale is the best - a challenge of donkey polo - but you'll have to book this tour to find out about that!

  Experience history, culture and physical adventure all in one memorable day. Your journey backwards in time will begin at your hotel. Your tour will take you into an era that began 1500 years ago when the Mayan culture began to grow around Coba ("Ruffled Waters") as it was surrounded by five lakes. Of course, your guide will begin the day by sharing his knowledge of the area's history as you travel for 1 1/2 hours to these incredible ruins.
