My large family (group of 12) took 2 tours with Diego 1 to Chichen Itza & 1 to Coba, these were the best tours I’ve taken! Diego is incredibly knowledgeable, brings pictures and books to back up his knowledge and give more examples of what some ruins looked like hundreds of years ago! He explains everything in a very palatable way so everyone even the children who came can easily understand. He brought us to not only ruins of ancient civilizations but local places to eat including a Mayan family that made us the most amazing, authentic meal, we swam in multiple cenotes that had no other people there, and we got the amazing opportunity to be cleansed by a Mayan Xaman in Campamento Hildago. There was clearly a lot of planning and thought put into making the schedules for these trips & they were both beautiful! & I want to be sure to shout out Eric, our van driver who was so nice and pretty funny- it was great meeting them both and making memories we will have for a lifetime!

We had two amazing days with Diego and Eric. Diego is friendly, funny, and super knowledgeable on Mayan history and culture. He really ensures every tour is perfectly designed for the individual group. The “Coba Monkey Sanctuary” tour was by far our favorite day on vacation. So much interesting history and culture and the absolute best meal cooked by local Mayans. We visited one cenote that we had all to ourselves and another with just one other small group. He advised us of which gift shops sold authentic Mayan crafts supporting locals so we could avoid the “made in China” stuff. Of course, Eric did an amazing job getting us from place to place as the driver and was also super friendly and interesting.

Pixan travel provided an incredibly informative tour of Chitzen Itza & Ek Balam with a lovely lunch stop in Valladolid. Diego is very passionate about the culture and archeology of the Yukatan. His ability to explain the mathematical repetitions and astrological relations of the structures we visited in a simple and enjoyable manner was extremely impressive. He and our driver, Eric, were very easy to talk to and answered our many questions. The entire tour was very thoroughly planned to ensure a positive and enriching experience from pick-up to drop-off. I booked them because of Rick Steves' blog post, and I am so glad that I did... !!!

I can't wait to share our expeience with anyone looking for an off the beaten path adventure in the Rivera Maya region of Mexico. Diego was a fantastic guide. He picked us up at our resort (Valentine Imperial) for a full day trip. We were a group of 10 so we opted for the private tour. We headed to Coba. Entering the park, we first did a walking tour of ruins with lots of cool mayan history and information from Diego - he knows where to take all the good pictures.l too. 👍 we hopped on some vintage bicycles and made our way through the canopy of trees to the large pyramid - facinating. Dont pass up the fresh coconuts at the concessions before leaving the parking lot- great way to hydrate after being in the humid jungle. We headed to a mayan shamans house for a look at traditional mayan living and a ceremony. The shaman conducted a traditional ceremony to cleanse our souls before entering the private cenote. It was extremely interesting. The mayan household was humbling and inviting. They grow a lot of cool plants, herbs and flowers. The children put on a mighty performance in their home. We pet the chickens and pups, bought some honey and other mayan goods and headed to the cenote. We hiked for 15 min from the parking lot to the cenote changing area. Protip - do not wear the shoes you plan to hike/walk back to the van into the cenote. The trail is not difficult but is not fun in wet slippery shoes! There are bathrooms to change in and a covered monitored area to keep your dry goods. Only take what you want to get wet with you past this point. As you make your way to the cenote look for the bats! Take plunge and enjoy the cool refreshing water. After the swim we went to a mayan family home for lunch. It was unbelievably delicious. Dont be affraid to drink the beverages served! All food is made in an alfresco kitchen. When you are finished with lunch you take a short guided tour throgh a zoo - more of an ecological preserve - the owner raises and releases indigenous animals to support population growth. The honey is amazing. Suggested items: sunscreen, cooling towels, hats, sunglasses, cameras, dry clothes for after the cenote. Tips: (this is for example only! Just letting you know what our group did. This is not required) no tips necessary at Coba, although bring some extra cash for the 🥥 coconuts. The mayan shaman - they rely on tourism - be kind and generous if you have the means - we left $10pp + purchases some goods. Cenote - a couple bucks for the person watching over the items you dont take swimming - maybe $2-5pp. The lunch - we left $10pp and also contributed $$ to the animal funding. For Diego and the van driver; $20-$25pp. Total Cash 💸 pp: $60

Diego & Erick are two of the most amazing people ever. I was really so so appreciative of their tours and how much they allow you to truly experience things in a more private setting.

Our two tours over two days with Pixan Travel was fabulous! Diego is a brilliant guide with a vast knowledge of Mexico. We learned so much about Mayan history and culture during our visits to the different Mayan sites and to other areas in the Yucatán. Diego could answer all our questions which led to many fascinating discussions about history and human culture. Both Diego and Eric (who was driving) could not have been nicer. It was a pleasure spending time with them. They made the trip both interesting and fun. Eric is an excellent driver. We felt completely safe throughout our two days on the road. My wife and I highly recommended Pixan Travel! We will go back for more tours with them.

I saw Pixan travel information from Rick Steve's blog and decided to give Diego a call. We arranged our trip to go to COBA, a private cenote owned by a Mayan family, and had lunch at another Mayan family's place where they also provided sanctuary for wildlife. We had a wonderful time and thanks to Diego's knowledge, we learned so much about the Mayans. I particularly appreciated him wanting to bring business to the real local communities and help them thrive. We shared the same idea and would much rather supporting the locals who are trying to protect the environment than big corporation that put their profit first. It is really urgent that we are all aware of what irresponsible over-tourism's caused to the environment. I could see the environmental catastrophes everywhere in the Yucatan Peninsula's coast due to overdevelopment. Diego definitely cares about the environment and wants to do the right thing! I highly recommend his tours!

Not only was our experience beautifully curated and delightfully intimate, Diego was an incredible tour guide who knew exactly how to make our tour special. Somehow he managed to even make busy Tulum seem like a private and intimate experience! (Plus he knew all the best photo spots) Also one of our group left her cell phone in the car, and Diego went out of his way to get it back to us quickly, at no extra charge. He really cared about our experience and I honestly can't recommend this company enough!

Diego was an excellent tour guide and provided an in depth tour of Tulum as well and a detailed tour of a private cenote working with the locations to give us the tour that best fit our schedule. He was very personable and we had a great time spending the day with him. When we left a bag in the private van at the end of the tour he worked hard with the driver to ensure it was quickly returned to us. Would recommend this tour!

Wow! When they say something to the effect of 'prepare for the experience of a lifetime,' now I know what they mean. This truly was an experience. Diego and Daniel were amazing. We booked the Coba and Tulum tour, and it was fantastic. Diego is very knowledgeable accommodating, and very easy to talk to and personable. He really knows his stuff. I forgot to ask him but I think he probably must have an archeology degree because he knows a lot about . He is able to explain the historical significance of every ruin and the thought behind each structure that the Mayans built. Right down to the mathematical equations that that mines use to build their temples, and he knows the perfect spot to take a photos. I would highly recommend that you take this tour. You will not regret it.

- We are very grateful to be able to take the great travel writer Rick Steves on two of our tours, it was an unforgettable experience below you can see his review -

I’m glad we booked two days with Pixan Travel. On our first day we did the obvious sightseeing very smoothly and with no stress. Our second day was more for connecting with the local culture. The Yucatan is so fascinating in so many ways and with an insider’s guidance I know my family I I got the most out of our time. Diego was thoughtful, shaped his guiding to our interests, and was also simply a joy to be with. Thanks a lot!
