    My FI is taking all his guys deep-sea fishing the day before we get married (this is what he wanted to do instead of having a typical bachelor party) and all the ladies and I are going to Xcaret. We're also considering doing a day trip to Tulum or snorking for a day. Make it fun and creative and everyone is guaranteed to have a good time!

      When I was down this summer with my wife for a ten year anniversary we took a day trip to the then new Xplore, which is part of Xcrate (separate parks). The zip-lines were amazing! There are 4 adventures for you to do, zip amphibious vehicle, rafting through a cave and swimming through a cave. The admission was well worth it, $99 usd. That included a very nice buffet.
      Of course a trip to the ruins is nice too.

          Xel Ha - was my FAVOURITE Mayan excursion. It's totally affordable if you take local transit and just pay the entry fee.
          Love is a wonderful thing!

            There are some great ideas here...not enough time to read all of them. I appreciate the suggestions because I have been down there a few times doing various adventures and want to take my attendants and moms for a special day before the wedding as a "Thank you"
            I have been to Hidden Worlds while at Dreams Tulum because it is literally right across the highway. We did the 2 cenote tour and it was great. Don't go if you are claustrophobic at all! It was great but I wanted to see more. We also did Tulum which was neat to see and the beach below is such a beautiful pictures for pictures! I would recommend Xcaret. The night show was awesome and the park is huge! We got to swim with dolphins. I was all excited about snorkeling in the "underground river" thinking it would be cenotes and really cool. Not so much. No fish, man-made snorkeling all the way through the park. Kinda fun I guess if you aren't worried about what all you are missing out above you. Go early so you can see everything! Hope this helps.

                Hi hoty75,

                I'm trying to gather as much information for deep sea fishing in Mayan Riviera area, mainly for the boyz~ Did you go through a company? or on your own? Thanks!

                  we are doing a private catamaran charter through Paradise catamarans. They have gotten really great reviews on Tripadvisor and have been great to work with so far. its a 4 hour trip with snorkeling and we are adding lunch and alcoholic drinks to the package.

                    Thanks Elisha0607! So they do Dee Sea fishing as well as snorkeling? I'll go read more in Tripadvisor!
