Combine the best of activities in Mexico’s Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, home to more than 1 million acres of rainforest, waterways and a huge diversity of native plants and animals, including 350 bird species.
After pickup from your hotel in the morning, visit the Sian Ka’an camp where a Mayan community taps local trees to make chewing gum – the traditional way. Discover the Mayan origins of gum production as you participate in this fascinating process.
Next, set out on an easy hike through the tropical rainforest, keeping an eye out for wildlife as you learn about the reserve’s flora and fauna from an indigenous guide. Then, savor a snack, including fresh fruit and drinks, as you relax on a deck in Muyil.
When you’ve had your fill, hop aboard a boat for a leisurely, two-hour cruise down gorgeous turquoise lagoons, including Muyil and Chunyaxché. Hear more about the diverse ecosystems and look for native animals that inhabit the area before you descend into the refreshing water channels for a swim.
Make use of your life vest and float comfortably along the freshwater canals surrounded by mangroves. When you arrive at the cenote, a cave-like sinkhole filled with water beneath limestone walls, immerse in the crystal-clear water and snorkel around, exploring its depths if you choose. Finally, enjoy the local cuisine with a delectable lunch (included) in Tulúm before you head back to your hotel.
