Tulum ruins are as authentic as you get. It’s a great tour and the view of the ocean behind the main temple is spectacular, but I’m not sure it’s worth the 7 hrs round trip from Cozumel. We had a much closer port on the mainland.

I have also done the underwater scooters in St Maartin. It was ok. Had more fun snorkeling. It is not much more than a dive helmet, tank, seat, and motor. The helmet makes it easier than diving but the scooter part really didn’t add as much as you would think. It gets moved real easy by the currents and the motor isn’t big enough to give you the amount of control you would like. It is not at waste of money, however, and is an enjoyable experience. The helmet diving is better. You get closer to the sights because you don’t risk running into them with the scooter.
