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.

Fun Sian Ka’an Adventure
M5494RKnoahs, 18-09-2022
Lea took us on a great adventure through a jungle where we saw some Mayan ruins and jungle wildlife and then to a few lagoons by boat where we ended up floating in a canal/river! The float was the best part and lasted about 30-40 minutes! Danny was our dependable and wonderful driver who made sure we were taken care of on the road and at all of our stops. He and Lea made an excellent team and we had a memorable afternoon of fun that I would definitely do again! (Lea also speaks at least 3 languages! Which was convenient because we had English, Spanish and German speakers in our group.)
Perfect mixture of culture and nature experience

I liked this tour with Luigi even more than swimming with whale sharks, since i'm getting easily sea sick.. a small tip - for full experience of a lazy river, made by Maya(!) take swimming goggles with you, but make sure you don't lose it in this beautiful water.
Many thanks to the team!
2nd time on this tour!

This is my second time going on this tour. The guides here are so friendly and knowledgeable- You can see how passionate they are. This was a really fun tour- I love the mix of visiting the ruins of Muyil but also getting to float down a canal. It's a really great combo, very enjoyable and perfect for the hot days in Mexico. I highly recommend this tour- you get a little bit of history, culture and also a leisurely swim! They also provide a homemade lunch- very delicious!
AMAZING!

Best tour ever!

This was unquestionably one of the most fun days I have ever had. Marco was an amazing tour guide and made our trip very memorable, and went above and beyond with providing homemade lunch, and also be willing to wait for storms to pass so we could finish our tour. Don’t miss out on this tour. A great, relaxing last day in the Tulum area.
