Overview

The archaeological site of Muyil is located in the northern part of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere reserve. This ancient Mayan trading post is the perfect place to enjoy astounding Mayan temples such as the 17 meters (57 ft) building known as El Castillo in the incredibly diverse semi-deciduous forest of Sian Ka'an. From the archaeological site you will take an interpretive trail towards the tallest observation point of Sian Ka'an to admire the exuberant vegetation of the jungle and the fresh water wetlands. Once you reach the Muyil lagoon, you will take a boat across two lagoons connected by an artificial canal that has been in use for many centuries. Xlapak is the name of the building at the beginning of the lazy river and the start of an incredible floating experience in crystal clear pluvial water on its way to the Caribbean ocean. You will float for over 30 minutes surrounded by mangroves, orchids, bromeliads. A delicious vegetarian picnic with seasonal fruits is included in the tour.

Amazing Muyil tour with Paloma!
thomasdC9463AS, 24-04-2022
Great day for our family (10 people) at Muyil. Paloma was our tour guide. She was knowledgeable, friendly and spoke good French. She also prepare an awesome lunch for us! We visited the ruins, did a boat tour on the laguna and finished with an amazing swim in the mangrove! Unforgettable day!
Marco’s Epic Tour

We had a large group of about 18 take a tour with Marco. He was knowledgeable, fun, and made the experience wonderful. Highly recommend this if you are in or around Tulum and looking for something to do with family or friends!
A once-in-a-lifetime experience

An excellent tour led by a knowledgeable, friendly guide. The boat ride in the Lagoons within Sian Ka’An biosphere reserve and the experience of floating within an ancient Mayan canal were especially wonderful and memorable. Highly recommended.
Incredible day with an incredible guide!

We had the best day with our guide Lea, exploring the Muyil ruins and taking an epic float down a canal. We had 7 kids in our group, and she was so patient and entertaining. She made us a beautiful lunch, including homemade vegetarian burritos and sweet cornbread. It was the perfect day! I highly recommend this tour company and spending a day with Lea!
Spectacular intimate biosphere tour

EVERY PART OF THIS TOUR WAS AMAZING!

Learning about the ancient Mayans, walking through the jungle, sailing on the freshwater lake and floating through the ancient Mayan canals on life jackets. This tour is soothing and yet mind blowing at the same time. Cesar, our guide was so knowledgeable and literally the coolest dude we have met in Mexico. This is a wonderful tour to do, it’s small and intimate, and filled with incredible wonders of the jungle and amazing biosphere. You relax in shallow, fresh water canals and it’s is sublime. It’s a must to fully appreciate Tulum and a welcome reprieve from the crowds at busy Cenotes.
