Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve reviews
The day trip was ok but I gave a note of four due to the fact we were able to see dugons, dolphins and turtles. Wonderful experience. more »
Relaxing get away after the long two hour drive from Tulum, but so worth it! Not to crowded and affordable. Must take the boat to see the Laguna, Ocean to see the large turtles, dolphins, and swim in.... more »
The tour is one of a kind. Amazing view. Our tour guide Thomas was funny and very insightful. 12/10. Water is absolutely beautiful more »
Very sad visit - as of January 2021 don’t go there expecting untouched paradise away from all the Tulum glitter: the beach is covered in algae and trash. It is littered with plastic objects and particles. It is a very very sad sight, especially for a natural reserve, and the few people we met on the beach happened to share that opinion. I hope the park/local authorities organize removal campaigns but this seems to be a deep-running issue along the Caribbean coast.
An incredible nature reserve rich in flora and fauna. I’ve seen only a glimpse of it and look forward to exploring more of it in the future...
Highly regulated since it's a preserve so you can't snorkel without a life vest. Therefore no diving down or swimming under water. So for those of us who free dive, skilled swimmers or divers ...ehhhh it's just ok. The wildlife is definitely there to see on the good side. Can be a bit chilly when your day starts out at 61 and only climbs to mid 70's😬 the wind when the boat is going full speed is a wee bit too chilly to fully enjoy.
Do the floating tour it’s beyond magical requires no swimming because the current does all the work, this is a slice of heaven untouched by man. You can drive to the complex and take the tour inside!
I understand that this is a marine reserve, so taking the time to drive out the road is a long way to go for nothing. We were there just after a storm, so the beach was unusable and the waves were quite large.
