  1. As mentioned before, there is a spot to leave your towel and dry clothes. Time is limited so we wore our suits under our clothes and then just put them back on after drying off because they’ll dry quickly enough once you’re at the Ruins and walking around.
  2. Just swim in the cenote. It is absolutely gorgeous and the flotation vests will keep you afloat as you swim with no problem.
  3. You start in the outdoor natural pool, that feeds out to the "lazy river" - which is short with no real current, but is gorgeous. You are offered a tube to use if you'd like, but no one in our tour group bothered using one because you can just lazily swim/float using your vest much more easily. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Then you exit the lazy river via steps, get your snorkel mask, and enter the cavern and down into the cenote itself.
  4. It is spectacular - and once you are in the cavern, make sure you look down to the bottom of the cenote. They’ll provide the mask, or you can bring your own. I wish I’d bought one of those full face masks myself, but we just used the provided masks. The view under the water is just breathtaking. I’m excited for you; you’ll have so much fun.
  5. My daughter was a little concerned too because she isn’t a strong swimmer at all and had to really push through some anxiety about trying it, but it turned out beautifully. The river and cenote range to 30-60 feet deep, but with the flotation vests, you’ll have no problem whatsoever. I promise you’ll be glad you tried it.

The river is so short and with such such little movement that no one bothered with a float though they are offered. We all just swam or floated down ourselves and it was perfect.
  7. Hobbie_16, I'm not sure when you are sailing, so this may be too late. We are scheduled for this tour in early February and are using floating waterproof phone pouches; I bought us each a small, hard sided wallet that will fit into the pouch with our phone in order to keep our money and cards on our persons instead of leaving them on the bus. We've used similar pouches on previous cruises and it works great. We just use our phones for photos, so the camera issue has never come up. I am even more excited about this excursion after reading this review, so thanks cruisegal96!
  8. We are doing a New Orleans: Haunted Pub Crawl with New Orleans Ghost Adventures (https://www.neworleansghostadventurestour.com) the night before we set sail and plan to take a cemetary tour when we get back, but haven't settled on one yet.
