Esta excursão de 5 horas saindo de Tulum leva você até o antigo posto comercial ao longo de uma trilha natural interpretativa antes de um passeio de barco na Lagoa de Muyil. Em seguida, desfrute de uma relaxante descida navegando pelo canal de águas rasas enquanto flutua por 30 minutos, passando por uma vegetação única. Aprenda com seu guia sobre a ecologia da região e a civilização Maia antes de um almoço (piquenique).
Our family group of 7 was joined by another couple to make 9 people over 3 generations on this tour. Our guide, Andrea, was very knowledgeable and did a great job of giving us a lot of information about the ruins at Muyil in an interesting way that held the attention of the children as well (ages 7 and 10). The walk through the biosphere was interesting and just the right length. The walk to the top of the look-out was worth it and afforded a view of the lagoons. We stopped for a delicious picnic lunch of empanadas, rice and salad before getting in the boats to cross the lagoons. The float down the canal was a blast and enjoyed by all. It was relaxing and quiet - except for the squeals of delight! I had read a previous review that recommended taking water shoes for the walk back. We did that but also noticed that the boat operators delivered everyone's shoes to the exit spot for the walk back. This tour was very well organized and it was nice to give back to the local community. Our guide and driver were very good. We particularly appreciated the small group experience. Be aware that it did last longer than anticipated, but was so interesting that the time went quickly.
This was an amazing mix of culture and environment. Our guide, Luigi, gave a overview of the Mayan architecture at the ruins and their role in the society at the time. But the best part was seeing the biosphere and floating through one of the canals on a hot day.
The tour company offer a more expensive experience that goes to the sian Kaan earlier and we were told that the best time to see more wild life. The ruins are great any time and our guild was very informative. on retrospect i would have paid more and gone to the other side as the floating river is nice but a little boring as no wildlife here all the manatee's are on the sea side, Also quit a walk back after. my advise is to see Muyil earlier in the morning and book for the seaside of Sian Kaan, however over all our guild and driver made the trip fun and interesting.
This trip started out on shaky ground as we had to wait an inordinate amount of time for other participants to arrive. Despite that the guide did keep us appraised of how things were progressing. Our guide, Tannia Garcia was the best! The place itself is amazing and she gave us information historic and environmental which was really interesting. Her attention to detail and attention to each of us was terrific. It was a small group and she made the entire experience fun, inspiring, educational, and delicious. Floating in the canal was fabulous. Both Sian Ka'an and Tannia are remarkably awesome.
I really enjoyed this tour. Hugo was very informative providing us with answers to any of our questions. He is very ecological responsible which is a big plus. Loved floating through the mangroves and the vegetarian snack at the end of the tour.
I highly recommend this really fun and educational ecotour of the Mayan ruins and this beautiful area! Our guide, Pluma was very personable, knowledgeable and kind. He told us Mayan fables that explain the philosophy of the Mayans. There were fun quizzes/games to keep everyone engaged. And, the boat ride and float through the lagoon was beautiful! And, Delicious, organic Mayan food was shared to end the tour.
Extraordinary. This Mayan site has a romantic feel in the jungle and I saw no evidence of commercialization which plagues many sites. The float in a stream of a lagoon was one of the most peaceful and memorable experiences of my life.
Nice Mayan ruins away from the hordes. Very nice guide and driver. Interesting boardwalk through mangrove swamp. Tip: the one place bug spray needed on my February trip. The bay was beautiful, float through the channel very relaxing and fun. Lunch was good, tacos, but at 5:00 ish.
Expérience inoubliable avec une guide savante et sympathique qui parle parfaitement français et se fait appeler 'Lara Croft'. Elle nous a tout dit de la formation géologique locale comme de l'histoire de Muyil et les enfants ne se sont pas ennuyés.
Des ruines maya dans la jungle à la traversée du canal de Sian Ka'An aux eaux fraîches et limpides en se laissant porter par le courant, en passant par un pique nique de spécialités locales faites maison, notre avons adoré l'aventure.
NB: nous espérions voir des animaux dans la jungle mais cette partie de Sian Ka'An n'est pas la plus intéressante à cet égard, nous avons cependant déjeuné en compagnie de ratons laveurs gourmands et curieux! Pour voir la vraie vie sauvage de la mangrove, il faut faire le tour beaucoup plus long qui vous emmène au sud de la réserve.
