  • Three avid women bicyclist toured the Reserve with our guide, Frank, from Tulum Bikes. Although Frank was Irish, he has lived in Mexico quite some time and was very knowledgeable about the biosphere. ...  more »
  • We have a very full day. From 7 am to 7 pm in the evening. Well-being on the road with water and buffet in the afternoon. Beautiful surroundings and spotting dolphins and turtles in the wild. The jeep tour is quite long and the road is bad. Nice, but actually slightly too long! great day trip in a small group. Very worth it.

  • Arm yourself with spirit of adventure for this hike! There is a long dirt road to go, not recommended for those suffering from lower back problems, finally we come to a bridge under which stationed crocodiles. Then from a pier depart small lance offshore to observe dolphins and sea turtles into the wild; Whoever wants to can snorkel (mandatory life jackets), but the reef is not rich in wildlife as the Red Sea, for example. Finally we stopped in a fishing village and lunch with catch of the day and for an additional charge you can taste the lobster:)
