MUYIL RUINS EXCURSION
Exclusive Online Discount!
Different than our Sian Ka'an tour, this engaging eco-adventure enters the Sian Ka'an Biosphere to see the Muyil Mayan ruins site, as well as the eco-boat trip through the wetlands. As you approach the coastal ruins, your expert biological guide will illustrate the relevance of this ancient Mayan trading-post, the outstanding history of the Moon Goddess Ixchel and her role in this striking city.
You will hike an educational path and learn about the flora and fauna of this amazing jungle. On the way to the Muyil lagoon, we will stop for a gaze at the highest mirador of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere for a unique view of the reserve. Once you meet your local skipper, you will go for a 2 hour boat-ride across the wetlands. Visit a secret Maya temple and drift off an ancient canal. You will float in translucent fresh water; the natural tide will take you across the mangrove. Once back in Muyil, we will share our experience of this wonderful day around a very nice picnic lunch.
This tour features very small groups, providing a uniquely intimate and enriching experience. It visits a part of Sian Ka'an that allows you to enjoy the essence of the Biosphere in a much shorter day than other tours.Sian Ka'an & Muyil Excursion Highlights
