Half Day Tour to Sian Kaan


Embark on an unforgettable expedition to Sian Ka'an, a captivating tropical wetland haven. Our guided tour unveils a narrow stretch of land encompassed by pristine beaches, serene lagoons, and opulent vegetation. Drift along on a mesmerizing boat ride that wanders through diverse coastal ecosystems and mangrove forests.


Located just south of Tulum, lies a remarkable nature reserve, a sanctuary of remarkable diversity. This region serves as the meeting point between subterranean freshwater rivers and the crystalline Caribbean waters. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unparalleled ecological significance, the blend of overlapping ecosystems provides a dynamic habitat for a plethora of fish, mammals, birds, and reptiles. These creatures are intricately connected through enchanting waterways, contributing to the area's captivating biodiversity.


Our journey takes us deep into the heart of the biosphere, to the Boca Paila lagoon. Boca Paila is a vital spot for numerous wildlife species. Marvel at resident birdlife, spot crocodiles and if luck is on our side, encounter the elusive manatee. Weather permitting, we then venture further into the open waters for a captivating snorkeling experience on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Immerse yourself in the vibrant corals and abundant marine life. (Should weather conditions prevent snorkeling, we offer an equally breathtaking visit to an enchanting open cenote.) Roam tropical saltwater canals, navigate through mangrove islands, and witness the mesmerizing, flooded sinkholes on this picturesque adventure.


After our explorations, an exquisite homemade lunch awaits on the sandy shores. Bask in the tranquility of coconut groves, take a refreshing dip in the inviting sea, and savor the moments of relaxation before our return voyage. This exceptional escapade offers an opportunity to relish the Sian Ka'an Biosphere's wonders, all within the serene ambiance of lesser-explored lagoons, away from the bustling tourist trails leading to Punta Allen.
