What You Can Expect
A long sandy road leads to the Punta Sur State Refuge ecological reserve. Here you'll visit El Caracol, an ancient Mayan ruin once used as a weather alarm. Built between 1200 and 1400 A.D., El Caracol was used by the Mayans to indicate the approach of a hurricane or storm. At Columbia Lagoon, watch saltwater crocodiles basking in the sun in their natural environment. Then, explore the observation tower which overlooks the lagoon before heading over to the beach to enjoy the year-round crystal-clear waters.
The bay is protected from sea currents, and its calm, shallow waters make it the ideal place for snorkeling. You might see turtles, lobsters and tropical fish on your guided snorkeling tour. While you snorkel, your guide will always be nearby to help you out and answer any questions you may have. If you want to give snorkeling a miss, feel free to simply relax under the shade of your beach umbrella.
Jumping back into the Jeeps, you'll head over to the Navigation Museum inside the Punta Celarain lighthouse, with the option to climb to the top. Then, drive over to a beach resort to enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch of fajitas, rice, beans, chips, real tortillas and Mexican salsa. Beach chairs, a freshwater swimming pool, showers and towels are included in the price.
it was very good. David was knowledgeable and nice to be with. Fortunately we went during the slow season (week of june 18th) and there were few people on our trek, which made it even better.
We had a fabulous time on our jeep and snorkel tour. Lorenzo was our guide and did a great job giving us the tour. He is very knowledgeable and accomodating. We would recommend this tour to everyone.
