ECO TOUR OF SIAN KAAN
Discover Sian Ka'an 1.6 million acres of natural environment, and its vast diversity of wildlife has earned it a declaration as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The incredible ecosystem is home to over 350 species of birds and over 100 species of mammals, many endemic to this region of Mexico. Dolphins, jaguars, crocodiles, ocelots, sea turtles and manatees are just a few of the rare species to call this area home. This tour will take you deep inside the reserve.
After a stop at the park information center, where you'll listen to a great orientation of the park from your tour guides, you'll drive on to the small fishing village of Punta Allen, where you will have a snack, place your food order at a beach restaurant, and board a small boat to embark on your boat tour of the mangrove-lined waterways, spotting and identifying birds and other wildlife.
Your first stop will be at the Natural Pool called the Boca Paila, home to crystal-clear waters, a white sand bottom and incredible natural beauty. Here we can relax, swim, and take great photos. The boat continues to Cayo Culebras, where we'll search for dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, sea stars, pelicans, ibis, spoonbills, hawks, cormorants, and other animals.
Next we'll snorkel at one of the most beautiful and colorful coral reefs, seeing all types of tropical fish, and maybe lobsters or barracudas. After snorkeling, we'll return to the beach restaurant to enjoy our hot-cooked lunch and have time to relax at the beach before heading for home.
