SIAN KA'AN BIOSPHERE RESERVE

Float Through a Wildlife Sanctuary at Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve

Explore a pristine tropical forest by boat or kayak at this protected natural preserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve is filled with exotic animals, stunning landscapes, and archaeological sites. Jungle waterways and mangrove channels lead through an incredibly diverse ecosystem, home to charismatic creatures including jaguars, pumas, tapirs, and manatees. Hundreds of birds and fish species inhabit the wetlands and shallow bays of this massive reserve, which covers 1.3 million acres of the Riviera Maya just south of Tulum.

On an eco-tour of Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, you'll have exceptional opportunities for wildlife photography on a kayak or a village fisherman's boat. Learn about the region's environmental richness and unique history from your local guide, and venture into a lush, green wilderness known to the Riviera Maya as the "Origin of the Sky."
