  • Meet a local family and share an exquisite homemade meal with them.
  • Follow an indigenous guide across the Spider Monkey Sanctuary.


Deep in the mexican jungle, there are two fantastic places ideal for this marvellous adventure. And on this trip you’ll discover both, along with their history and culture. So, don’t miss out this unique chance to explore Coba and the Punta Laguna Reserve, near Tulum.

First, we will visit the mayan site of Coba, nestled in the dazzling jungles of Mexico. Thereon, we will climb this majestic structure, which is the largest pyramid in the northeast of Yucatan. So, from the top, we’ll get hypnotizing views of the area.

Then, after this archaeological adventure, we will head to an impressive cenote to swim in its refreshing waters. Cenotes are natural pits, that formed as a result of the collapse of limestone bedrock which has exposed the groundwater running underneath. On top of enjoying their breathtaking beauty, you’ll learn about their history, which is related to ancient Maya offerings.

After such exciting activities, we’ll take a well deserved break and meet the welcoming Cahum family, with whom we will have lunch. As we try exquisite local delicacies with them, they’ll share stories of their past and present with us.

Later, with our bellies and hearts replenished, we will head to the Spider Monkey Sanctuary with an indigenous guide. After admiring all the natural beauty of the place and meeting this curious creatures, we’ll end with a shaman purification ceremony.  Finally, before heading back and ending our adventure, we’ll get on a 200 meters zipline that crosses the jungle, and canoe on the waters of this paradise.

So, if you are a true adventure and nature lover, this is a trip you cannot miss. Request to book this trip today and learn about the local culture, nature and history.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
