RIDE INTO PARADISE
Sian Ka'an is a tropical wetland paradise where we cycle a thin strip of land bordered by empty stretches of beach, lush vegetation, lagoons and mangrove forest.
Just south of Tulum lies an incredibly rich and diverse nature reserve, an area where the underground freshwater rivers flow out to meet the Caribbean. Considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its ecological importance, the overlapping mix of ecosystems provides a living and breeding space for a variety of fish, mammal, bird and reptile species, all connected to each other by enchanting waterways.
We ride as far as the Reserve Visitor Center, 8 km. inside the Biosphere, where we explore a little museum about the area and a take in the amazing view of the sea & lagoons. We then board a small boat to visit Boca Paila - a vital point of convergence for many animals, where we have the chance to spot the resident birdlife, crocodiles & look out for the rare manatee. We make a small beach stop and, weather permitting, have a chance to snorkel on the reef (if this is not possible we will visit a beautiful cenote instead).
Your homemade lunch will be waiting back at the visitor center, and we will relax among the coconut groves for a while before hitting the road back. This is a great option to visit the Sian Ka'an Biosphere in the most eco-friendly manner, enjoying the unique landscapes of the wetlands in the quieter part of the lagoons.
