CENOTE SUP TOUR
Tulum is a beautiful town with amazing beaches, also well-known by its cenotes. These natural rock pools with fresh water are one of the most visited attractions of the Yucatan Peninsula. Have you ever been in one?
The cenotes can be explored in many different ways: swimming, snorkeling, diving… But, would you like to discover a cenote from above? Would you like to walk into a cenote? Paddleboarding allows to do it.
We offer a unique paddleboarding & snorkeling tour in one of the most beautiful cenotes of Tulum. Casa Cenote, located just 5 minutes by car from Tulum town, is an open crystal water cenote surrounded by amazing green mangroves and full of natural life. There are many cenotes around but this particular one is especial for the color of the water when the sun is shining, for all the sounds of birds, coatis and other wild animals who live there, for the little caves between the rocks of the bottom and the mangroves floating in the surface, and for many other things that you should discover by yourself.
We depart from our beach spot at Ahau Tulum hotel at 8:00 am in the morning. Why so early? Because the cenote is empty and you can have a complete moment of calm and connection with yourself and with all the nature around you. Because it’s not mosquito time, not super hot and the sun doesn’t burn that much at this time of the day. Remember that we can’t use suns screen at the cenote to maintain the purity of the water, which is used by many Mayan families to live.
The cenote is perfect to learn paddleboarding if you are a complete beginner because the water is completely still and flat. Currents or waves won’t interfere your SUP lessons. That fact makes the cenote the easiest place to get on the board and paddle. You can paddle here no mater what, neither your age nor your physical conditions. You can come and discover the cenote with all your family including grandpas and children. They’ll have a blast.
The tour starts with a basic paddleboarding lesson where you will learn all the paddling techniques and the wave catching ones too. After paddling all around the cenote, which is not that long, we will stop to do some snorkeling. The view under water is really cool with mangroves and rocks all over the place. If you are more adventurous we will take you to snorkel under and between the mangroves. The depth of the cenote is also good enough to do some free diving for those of you who are interested in this amazing sport.
Once we have done all those things you will have free time to explore the cenote on your own and to chill on the SUP boards with your friends and family.
The tour doesn’t end here. No! It would be a shame. After this amazing paddleboarding experience you will have another one… this one for your sense of taste, having probably the best tacos in town. Honorio’s cochinita, lechón and carne asada tacos are incredibly delicious. In case you are vegetarian, they have beans tacos too, but we can also take you to have some yummy veggie quesadillas to La Mexicanita. All the food options offered in the tour are 100% local, 100% Mexican style and 100% delicious. You won’t regret eating this food.
Actually, we are sure you won’t regret taking the tour with us. We’ll try to make the best experience for you, your friends and family. We’ll tailor the tour according to your preferences.
We have been doing this tour for 4 years now with tons of good experiences (check them here). How did we start doing the tour? We started doing some paddleboarding trips to the reef in front of Ahau. All the people enjoyed very much the activity. One day a family with 2 little kids asked to go for paddleboarding but the sea was really rough. Mauricio thought about the possibilities, loaded some boards on the truck and took them to Casa Cenote. The family had a great experience, the kids had a blast on the boards even if they couldn’t paddle and that was the beginning of our paddleboarding tours.
Are you still thinking about what to do in Tulum? Don’t you have enough information here? Please, feel free to ask any other questions you may have, we’ll be more than happy helping you.
