  • MUYIL: 10 minutes after the departure of Tulum is this place, you can pass the archaeological or do the boat tour, recommended is to go directly to talk to the people who make the routes, then with tour operators triple you the price! They give you 2 options, short tour or tour long, short take you by ancient Mayan navigation channels and the boat in an ancient ruin for rear end swimming in one of these canalitos, has a bit of power so you can put your vest and enjoy only float in this place, lasts approximately 2.30 hrs the long looks much better, take you to do the same but the boat out to the reserve of Sian Ka´an where hopefully you can see manatees and dolphins eye: only allow 6 people on the boat no more, consider this if they go in group. SIAN KA´AN: I've camped several times in this place, definitely it is a paradise, you will find secluded beaches, there is no phone signal takes this consideration if you plan to stay overnight, the beaches are very nice only is having lot of garbage since being a reserve and isolated beaches no one them clean, one of the best starry skies I've ever seen!

  • We did the tour entering muyil! There we rented a boat to make a private tour! and if it was worth! never thought to find me that kind of landscapes... I think that it leaves you speechless as surprising is the nature! freshwater more Crystal ever seen in my life! would recommend this tour to closed eye, additionally find few people, so you have paradise to enjoy it yourself!
