Sian Ka'an panoramic

Sian Ka'an



Sian Ka’an is a tropical wetland paradise – on this tour we visit a thin strip of land bordered by empty stretches of beach, lagoons and lush vegetation on a boat ride that takes us across diverging coastal ecosystems, through mangrove forest and out to the coral reef.

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 drive as far as the Boca Paila lagoon, approximately 8km inside the biosphere, where we 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, a plethora of fish & even the rare manatee. Weather permitting, we then head out a short distance on open water to snorkel on the Mesoamerican Barrier reef, where you will be delighted by the healthy corals and fish in abundance. This is a beautiful trip through tropical saltwater canals, mangrove islands and flooded sink holes.

Your homemade lunch will be waiting on the beach when we return and we will relax among the coconut groves for a while, enjoy a swim in the sea if you like, before hitting the road back. This is a great option to visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, enjoying the unique landscapes of the wetlands in the quieter part of the lagoons that are less frequented by the groups of tourists heading down to Punta Allen.
