This excursion is focused on admiring the incomparable natural scenery of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere and getting to know more about the Mayan traditions.
During this excursion, we propose you a boat trip of 4 hours in the lagoons of fresh water of Muyil. During this walk we will make several stops.
The first will take place in front of a lost Mayan temple in full mangrove, which will be the starting point of an ancient canal dug by the Mayans. You will go into the water and you will be able to let drift on 800m approximately, carried by a natural current in a soft and clear water. Unique sensation of being alone in the world, no noise in the surroundings and the mangrove will belong to you.
We will then resume the boat which will sneak through the natural channels surrounded by mangroves in order to arrive as far as Boca Paila. C, is a unique place where the lagoon and the sea meet. It is not uncommon to cross crocodile or manatee on the way, it is never a certainty, but we always try to see them.
We will then leave you to enjoy a deserted beach to admire the turquoise waters of the caribbean and take your eyes full.
It is really a trip accessible to all, even to the youngest, because we remain on the lagoon side and there is no wave. People who are prone to seasickness will not be bothered on this excursion.
As we go on, we will get to know a small Mayan community in the jungle, where a refreshing bath awaits us in the crystal waters of the community’s cenote.
After the meal, you will discover the cenote of the community and you will be able to bathe in mask and tuba.Il is a sublime cenote semi-open, the spectacle under water is magnificent. You can also discover their temazcal and so get a little more of their culture.
