This excursion was the best. However, when we got at the port there were no one from the agency waiting for us. There were a booth with the same company's name (Iguana Maya) with a very rude employee who just told us they have nothing to do with the excursion. The Progresso's bus driver saw the discussion and was much nicer and explained he would be able to take us to the location we would meet with the agent. After that little confusion and misunderstanding we met the agent who took us to the Cenotes. His name is Manuel and he was just excellent. The cars pulled by horses were another special treat (and a happy surprise). How fun! After swimming we were hungry so he took us to a wonderful restaurant by the beach. I'd recommend and take this excursion again....
Driver picked us up where we were dropped off from the bus. Easy to find. Went on a fairly long drive (an hour and a half of so) through some really authentic looking places. Had the chance to see some Mayan ruins as well as a horse drawn rikety cart ride to these really neat caves that you could swim in. Bring a bathing suit and some cash to tip your car driver & cart drivers. Really enjoyed this excursion!

My husband & I were the only ones on the tour. The guide was very nice but we quickly realized he knew very little english. The drive was about an hour. When we got to Cuzama there were several horses and carts waiting. The cenotes were about a 15 minute ride on the rail cart. The first cenote we were taken to was the biggest and prettiest one of the three we saw. The water was cool and very blue. Had we known that this one was the nicest, we would have stayed and swam more. We got back on the rail cart for about 5 minutes & went to the other 2 cenotes. The second one was a small hole with a wooden ladder that spiraled down. It was really pretty interesting. The third cenote had a large opening but the swimming hole was rather small.. We swam in all three cenotes with goggles and life vests that the tour provided. We had plenty of time to go shopping in town(Progresso) had we wanted too but we decided to go directly back to ship.
