Sian Ka’an Biosphere, Mexico

$129.00 per person, minimum 4 people, transport not included in tour price.

This is an amazing opportunity to snorkel in the ocean along the Sian Ka’an Biosphere.  Still not overwhelmed with tourism this is a naturalist paradise.

We'll take you to one of the region's most beautiful beaches, where you can snorkel and then you can enjoy  lunch. From there we will wind thru the mangroves and give you the opportunity to float down one of the Wetland Canals. When floating down the canal you will actually see and feel the difference in the water as you start in water that is clearer and as you float you will see it grow cloudier and you will grow more buoyant as the salt water mixes in from the ocean. You will be able to see an amazingly diverse group of tropical and wetland birds, mammals, flora and fauna. A guide will help you locate and identify different species and explain the history of the Mayans in the region. We will visit a small ancient Maya Ruin on the way (the Xhlapak Ruin). This is a great way to see, feel, and participate in the Sian Ka’an Bio-reserve.
