Good morning Tangerineys! Buenos Días!
Just as we were leaving the house today the heavens opened up and it started
pouring down rain which we were thinking “crap is this gonna ruin our day?” It was a
torrential downpour! And of course it was almost exactly when
we opened up the door. But luckily it has stopped now and I think that’s just
total Tulum style – to pour down rain and then clear up in like a few minutes. We
are at Selva Maya Eco Adventures today doing some ziplining, rappelling, rock
climbing, cenotes, snorkelling. Cenote-ing. I’m really excited about all of this! This is our
third and final full day in Tulum and I feel like it’s going to be the best of
all of them so far. Yeah we’ve had so much fun here in this city already but this
is gonna be cool! The chariot awaits! We’re now in the jungle limousine! [Laughter] Going where? I don’t know! Good thing it poured last night because that wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun! I think that was more fun than some
amusement park rides that I’ve done. I was like, oh this is only the start of the day. Whoop! You ready for this? Yah! Helmet on tight? You look extra cute with that. Ready for our first zip line? Zip line! Go ahead! [Maddie shreaking as she’s ziplining through the jungle.] Here we go! Ahhh! Holy crap this is fast! Ahhh [Jordan freaking out at he zip lines through the jungle] Oh! Woo! Muy rápido! So for this zip line they told us: bend your knees at the end and they will catch you. Well, we both came in and I genuinely thought he just forgot someone was coming because he was just standing there. They have a stopper at the end. Yeah, we’re
probably doing about 20, 30 miles per hour right into the tree. I’m like okay – brace myself! [Laughter] Maddie-achi. Watch me eat it trying to clap my way across here. [Laughter] Okay. 1, 2, 3. Let’s got. Fast, fast, fast! WOOO! Ay ay ay! Clap it Jordan, clap it! [Laughter] Here we go. So many stairs! He said – this one you can go upside down. Oh! We are quite high up here and it is kind of toasty but I am really excited for this! Yeah, I thought we’d be in the shade the
whole time with it going through the trees. This is the only time though. We’re like above the trees right now! Not gonna lie, I’m a little nervous to go upside down. Vamanos! 1, 2, 3, go! [Laughter] No hands! [Jordan shreaking like a little girl on the zip line] Oh my gosh this is fast! Oh, this is fun! So it was surprisingly hard to stay
upside down but I was also a little bit afraid that if I went too far upside down, I wouldn’t be able to come back up. [Laughter] There’s no coming back from there! He’s like “no hands!” I’m like no, I have to watch out for this! And this time, we weren’t on the ground but we have to go up more stairs. We’ve done something like this before in Arizona
but here, they take care of all your equipment for you, whereas before we had to like set our own equipment up on every thing that we were going on. [Maddie shreaking on the zip line] Oh my gosh this is so fast! Wooo! [Laughter] Wooo! That one was fun! The disadvantages of being tall. [Laughter] I’ve completely lost count of how many zip lines there are. But I asked and he said there’s one more after this. Okay, so the last one is the biggest, and
baddest, and best, and fastest, and scariest. [Laughter] And scariest! [Ziplining through the trees at high speed] Woah! [Sign of relief when the zip line is done] Wooo! Ahhh! [Laughter] Wooo! And that’s all for this part of the tour!
Oh my gosh, that was so great! Oh my, yeah, if this was just the whole thing, like I think that’d be still fun. Look, honestly, I thought the Jeep part in the beginning was good enough. I would’ve been like “Yes, this was a great jungle tour!” [Laughter] But this stuff was awesome! There were so many ziplines! Wooo! That one was a rush! And now we still have like a climbing
and rappelling thing and then cenotes! Two cenotes. One where we’ll be in a cave and
the other is out and open. We don’t know yet exactly what’s happening next but we
think we repel or climb up the other side of this big wall, rappel down this
side and into this, cenote? Cenote. Oh yeah, I’m all about this! So we’re just about to do this rock climbing part of this and it starts raining so we found a nice umbrella here. Nature’s umbrella. A
palm tree. Gigantic palm leaf. So we’re staying perfectly dry over here. So after this climbing we’re gonna go into cenotes, but one fun fact about cenotes. Okay, maybe this is a few fun facts: There’s about 6,000 in the Yucatan (peninsula)
region. In many places it’s the only source of fresh water because there aren’t many
lakes or rivers. It’s so crystal clear because the rainwater filters through
the limestone and into the cenote! Awesome! Yeah, that’s really cool! Totally rad! Brah. Brah. [Laughter] Nice! How does it feel to have succeeded where
most have failed? [Laughter] That was so slippery! Oh I have so much dirt under my nails because I was gripping behind… Check out your legs! Oh lord! I was gripping inside each of the rocks.
When I got almost all the way up here there was one missing so there was no
place to put my left foot. [Laughter] Truth be told, he had to pull me up the rest of the way. I didn’t see that. I was like joink! Yeah! So now that we are lifejacket-ed up,
we’ve got some scuba masks and we’re walking through the jungle. I think these are snorkeling masks but we’ll roll with it! You know what I mean [Laughter] And I think we’re heading to a cenote! Jeez! They go right by your face, Jordan. Man, that was so different than the
others we went to. Like you had stalagmites and stalactites or is it stalactites and stalagmites? I think stalactites, stalagmites. I’ve
never done snorkeling before and that was amazing just crystal clear waters!
Fish were swimming around us the whole time! You really had to be careful in
this cave though because there are a lot of times where there was something
coming down from the ceiling. Stalactite. Yes, there was one of those coming down from the ceiling but it didn’t break the water’s edge, so if you were just looking down, you would run into it. Yeah, so it’s like look down, look up, make sure you’re clear. Once I got used to the cold that was really nice! And I stopped panicking that
I couldn’t breathe underwater despite having the snorkeling mask and everything. Year round the water temperature is 72 to 74 degrees, which sounds all right,
sounds nice, but it’s freezing when you first get in! Yeah, especially with it being so hot
and humid outside! [Jordan jumping off of the ledge into the cenote] [Maddie doing a backflip into the cenote] So after the cenotes they took us back
through the jungle and we had some lunch. Home-cooked lunch. Yeah and then we got
back in the limousine and took the trek back through the puddles in the pouring rain.
Thankfully, I was already soaking wet because I was sitting on the edge and rain was just
pouring on me. I thought that whole thing was a lot of fun! And yes, we may look
worse for the wear. So we might look a little bit worse for the wear but I had a
ton of fun that whole time! It was pretty much non-stop going from one thing to
the next thing. I didn’t feel rushed though, yeah, but it did keep us occupied the
whole time. This whole experience was about 1,500 pesos per person and we got
a cab there and then for the ride back we just went out to the highway and
within about 30 seconds a collectivo was picking us up. That was the fastest and easiest thing ever! Yeah, they said they only come by every five or ten minutes, so I think we got lucky there and
that was 25 pesos a person to get back into town (Tulum). Our cab, did we ever mention that? No. 250 pesos, so definitely a lot more expensive to do that, but we wanted to make sure we got
there on time! They have tours at 9:00 and 1:00 p.m.
and I think we ended, I don’t know what time it is, like 3 p.m. Yeah. It’s kind of an all-day thing but totally worth it! If you’re looking for something
to do in Tulum, we thought this was a lot of fun! We’ll put all that information
