Punta Laguna Nature Reserve, Tulum
(4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Nicknamed "the home of the spider monkey and the puma," Punta Laguna Nature Reserve tempts the explorer in you with its shimmering blue lagoon enclosed by a sprawling dense jungle. Declared a national protected area in 2002, the reserve represents an excellent example of sustainable tourism created and run by local communities. The 5,367 hectare (13,262 acre) grounds are home to 120 Maya villagers, many of whom maintain the reserve and offer hiking tours for those wishing to learn more about the surrounding plant and animal life. You can arrange canoeing, ziplining and water hole rappelling with your guide. Softly tread the trails of this humid jungle and you may be rewarded with a glimpse of one of the hundreds of spider or howler monkeys that live here. Add Punta Laguna Nature Reserve and other attractions to your Tulum trip itinerary using our Tulum itinerary builder.

  • We were lucky to visit it completely alone. It is about 20 km from the ruins of Coba. Here you can see three types of monkey. Better visit first thing in the morning or about 16 hours. You can zip line and sail on the Lake. There are also a few small crocodiles. We swim in a cenote of transparent water. It is a reserve by a Mayan community. Hopefully it continues and ends not becoming an adventure park.

  • We went with a francophone Group! We did: boat, Tyrolean, rappelling in a closed cenote, Mayan ceremony! It was top! in a nature reserve in the middle of the monkeys (not always in large numbers it's unpredictable nature!) lovely and very secure!
