We went to the Coba ruins and two cenotes. Absolutely amazing, one of the cenotes we had all to ourselves and the other only shared it with another couple. The lunch was also delicious, cooked by locals.

My family and I spent several days with Diego and Erick during our recent trip to the Yucatán and had a wonderful time! Diego is extremely knowledgeable, fun, and flexible (important when traveling with young kiddos) and Erick went the literal extra mile to help us and make sure we had what we needed. We visited several archaeological sites, swam in beautiful cenotes, snorkeled with the turtles, and ate amazing food, all with the good company and guiding of Pixan travel. Our family didn’t want to say goodbye when our time and tours ended, and hope that we’ll have the chance to tour with Pixan again!!

Amazing tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Diego, who has given Rick Steves and his family this tour, was well organized, flexible to accommodate our wishes for the experience, professional and personable. He was definitely the best tour guide at Chichen Itza, based on what I could overhear from the other tours as we passed Lovely lunch in Valladolid, and because of his planning we had anout an hour to ourselves at the cenote before another small group showed up. Highly recommend this tour and this guide. His driver, Erick, was akso amazing.

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’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!
