Beautiful place, annoying drive
Daniel_B, Sep 2020
First off, our guide, Herlan, was very knowledgable, charismatic and helpful. The reserve is extremly beautiful and the water is just wow. Sadly, we were a bit unlucky spotting animals, but that's nature. The sea was pretty rough and therefore the visibility in the water was not ideal. The main thing that you have to keep in mind, and why I'm not giving 5 stars is the following. The way to get there is really long and rough. You'll spend half half of the tour in the van. Keep that in mind.

Wonderful experience to discover marine wildlife with not too many tourists around.

Early pick up but on time. Quick breakfast but very simple. After lunch, great experience accross the lagoon after a long drive through the jungle. But the trip even not so confortable worth it. The guide and the boat driver were very welcoming and took care of us notably during the snorkling experience. We have been lucky to see some dolphins, tortoises and even a crocodile even if those were not easy to find. We would have appreciated to see more birds but Mexico is not Costa Rica. Safe come back at our hotel around 5 pm.

It was a nice trip. Very good breakfast and lunch. We saw dolphins, turtles and many different birds. Our driver Herman drove like Kimi Raikkonen, really well. And our guide Manuel was very professional, spoke at least 3 different languages. I was already wondering when this would start to speak Finnish. 😃👍Recommend a very beautiful place to see and experience

While it was a bit long, the Sian Ka'an tour was really terrific. Adrian was our guide and he and Hernan our driver were wonderful people. They even managed to make the potholes fun!. Highly recommended.

My god where do I start! This tour was really amazing..Our driver picked us up very early and on time and was even kind enough to wait for my girlfriend to get ready haha. Our tour guides were simply amazing. Very knowledgeable about the eco systems and marine life we visited. You hang with dolphins
