  • Only be reached by vehicle, you can rent one or search tours that offer different services. If you do not rent a tour, rent a car and reaches the dock of Punta Allen, can there rent a boat that can take you to see dolphins, turtles, or any marine animal that inhabits the area, also will take you to the "natural pool". Ask the boatman what Tours offers. I recommend you arrive in the morning and consider a minimum 2-hour ride from Tulum. If you are hungry restaurant which is located at the edge of the dock is a good choice.

  • It is a day trip and go prepared for a long journey by jeep, of more than three hours in each direction, along a track with sooooo many potholes. The first thing I would recommend, if you want to drive the jeep, arrange with the company who hire this aspect, since if you are less than four people they will force them to share jeep with others, most likely from other nationalities. The tour boat, the observation of dolphins, turtles, birds, snorkeling, swimming, etc. activities are highly recommended, but the tour is demanding and tiring.

  • It is an exceptional place, rarely found on this planet. The images we use are all simply amazing. The time seems suspended. You can see crocodiles, fish, turtles and manatees. The nail remains to be carried by the current of the river of fresh water on 1 km through the mangroves. Tip: Use a biodegradable sunscreen! The Mexicans do not like so much cream solar bio even, so don't mess this lovely place. Well applied cream 20 minutes before going in the water because otherwise it does not stay on the skin. PLACE SUBLIME: A Pearl of nature to do!
