Sian Ka’an Tour – Deluxe GROUP tour

(18 Reviews)

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest protected natural reserve in the Caribbean. It is located south of Tulum and covers over 650,000 hectares.

We will take you to the Sian Ka’an Reserve for a “marine safari” on a small boat to discover the wildlife of this remote area. We will sail through stunning landscapes looking for dolphins, follow the sea turtles, snorkel on the second largest reef in the world, relax in the crystal clear waters of Punta Allen’s natural pools, and enjoy a delicious lunch in the fishing village.

  • Local certified guides ! 🇪🇸 🇬🇧 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 🇵🇱
  • We board the boat at the beginning of the biosphere !
  • Avoid a 4 hour round trip on a bumpy dirt road !

Deluxe tour: The most comfortable option!

Punta Allen is the only village in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere reserve. It is also off the coast of Punta Allen that most activities take place. From the reserve entrance to Punta Allen, the distance is approximately 45 kilometers. This trip can be made by boat or van.
 
While most agencies go by van to Paso Lagartos or Punta Allen and then board the boat, at Pixan Ka’an we decided to offer you the most comfortable experience! We board the boat at the beginning of the reserve and avoid a 2 hour van ride on a bumpy dirt road.

Valentín, el guía, es excelente. Una agencia con quienes la comunicación fue fácil. Todas las personas súper amables!

Cómodo, fácil y un buen precio (ya que desde los hoteles los precios son absurdos).

El lugar es mágico y tuvimos la oportunidad de verlo todo: tortugas, delfines, manatíes. Y así mismo el spot de snorkeling muy lindo.

Muchas gracias!!

My partner and I had a great time on this trip. Abraham was very knowledgable about everything Yucatán and Punta Allen and everything around us. He spoke all the languages. Everyone involved was super helpful. It was great value for money, a full day experience. We saw dolphins, a crocodile, turtles and lots of birds. The waters were calm and the weather was beautiful. Highly recommend this.
