I booked with EdVenture in February. Fonzi (Alfonso) was our tour guide and he was absolutely incredible. Ed did a great job of accommodating us, after arriving in Tulum my girlfriend and I decided we would rather do a private tour instead of being with the group and Ed accommodated us on the spot for a small fee!!
We headed off for our guided tour of the Tulum ruins, I do highly recommend you have a guide so you can understand the history and significance instead of just looking at some ruins. Then we finished and went back to Ed to start our EdVenture. Since we changed to private tour Ed himself gave us a ride down to the beginning of the jungle.
We started off with an ATV ride through the jungle, Fonzi drove one and I drove the other with my girlfriend on the back. This took us to the zip-lines, we did the full 9 ropes and I highly recommend it! The zip-line instructors were excellent even getting us some fruit from the gum tree! Then we got to do a rock climb and repel. Then we did snorkeling in two cenotes, the cave one was the best, you had to use a flashlight. Next up was an ATV ride back to the van (roughly 40min total spent driving a 4 wheeler which was awesome and unexpected)! I had forgotten to buy biodegradable sunscreen at the tour booth so Ed set it up and made sure I had some by the time we were back at the van.
Then came the drive to Akumal to snorkle with the sea turtles. On the way we called ahead and placed our order at La Buena Vida, I highly recommend the shrimp tacos!! Snorkeling with the sea turtles was phenomenal. Fonzi promised we would see at least a couple sea turtles. We probably saw 6-8 and he dove down several times to snap a picture of me and my girlfriend with the turtles. He definitely made extra effort to make our tour incredible.
After snorkeling with the turtles we headed to La Buena Vida for lunch and a couple beverages :) Food was absolutely incredible.
After lunch our last stop was the lagoon to go snorkeling with the fish. Again, it was incredible. All along the way
I cannot stress how awesome of a day this was. It really was the best day of our vacation!!!! 5 stars all around to Ed and especially my man Fonzi!!!
