What you'll do

This full day boat trip is the perfect adventure for anyone looking to experience the very best of Mexico's Caribbean coast, as you take a boat to spot manatees, crocodiles, dolphins and tropical birds.

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is a stunning, sheltered area of coastline that provides a haven for all manner of marine wildlife, and is the perfect destination for anyone looking to get a little off the beaten track to discover the amazing wildlife that Mexico has to offer.

You’ll be picked up from the centre of Tulum, and driven through coastal jungle to the entrance of Sian Ka’an where you’ll continue your journey by boat. Cruise to Boca Paila and the spot where the wetlands meet the sea, keeping an eye out for manatees and crocodiles that live in the area.

Visit cays that make homes for a dazzling variety of tropical birds, before continuing your journey in the Caribbean sea as you look out for dolphins. If the weather allows, you’ll even be able to snorkel at the second largest coral reef in the world.

Relax at a sandbar that the locals refer to as ‘a natural swimming pool’, and then arrive in Punta Allen for an authentic Caribbean lunch. You will then make the return journey, arriving back in Tulum for around 5:30 pm.
