Mayan Eco Adventure: Sian Ka'an Biosphere Tour
US$ 149.00
With coral reefs, jungle, and thriving mangroves, the UNESCO-listed Sian Ka’an Biosphere is an ideal destination for nature-lovers, but the vast preserve is only accessible by boat or rough roads. Discover ancient Maya culture, plants and wildlife, and pristine beaches on a full-day Sian Ka’an tour from Cancun that includes the Muyil archeological site, a mangrove boat tour, lunch by the water, and hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Begin with pickup from your Cancun hotel, and travel to the archeological site of Muyil, where you’ll find ruined pyramids in the Peten style set between thick jungle and the Sian Ka’an lagoon. Learn about the lives of the ancient Maya on a guided tour of the site, then visit the surrounding jungle and wetlands as guides share local knowledge about plants and animals.

Board a boat across the Chunyaxché Lagoon, following ancient canals towards a mangrove river, and navigating into the heart of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere. This is the perfect time to spot some of the wildlife that thrives in the protected area: coatimundi sleep in the mangrove trees, crocodiles hunt and live in the lagoon, and sea turtles use the Sian Ka’an shoreline for nesting. Bird species in Sian Ka’an include frigatebirds, brown pelicans, and flamingoes, and Sian Ka’an is considered an important stop for migratory birds from around the Americas.

Come to shore at a scenic beach for lunch and drinks with a view of the Caribbean water, and soak up the sunshine far from crowds and resorts. After lunch, leave Sian Ka’an for the return trip to Cancun, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

This is one of the best excursions I've taken. We started off with a relaxing float down the canal, it was incredible! The current just calmly pushes you along as you relax and float in the sun. Then onto some ancient ruins that are only...More

Bext Nature tour around

I had the opportunity to scape and do this tour on my own. It is great, a little slow for my taste, as it mostly focuses on bird watching and has a lot of time to relax, but the contact with nature is amazing. I...More

Mayan Eco tour is amazing

Our trip was great start to finish. Clean van, cold beverages and an amazing experience. Definitely not the typical crowded "field trip" type tour. We left feeling like we learned about the area and had such a relaxing time floating down the mangrove river. Really...More
