Full description

Punta Allen is a picturesque and perfect place to park yourself on a boat tour. Here explore the local lagoons and come face to face with the incredible wildlife of this region. You'll have the chance to see beautiful birds and maybe even the opportunity to see wild dolphins and sea turtles that live in these waters. On the tour, also stop at the 2nd largest coral reef in the world, where you can jump out of the boat and enjoy a pleasant snorkel adventure (subject to sea conditions). You'll be amazed at the colors of this very healthy coral reef and the varieties of fish are absolutely stunning. The reef system is home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk, and more than 500 species of fish. Then, head to the beach, where the picture-perfect sandbar awaits. Here enjoy a delicious Caribbean lunch of fresh fish and fruit before heading back out to explore a bit more. The biodiversity of the Yucatan Peninsula is essential and the aim is to share this passion with you and teach you how you can all work to keep this great natural land safe for future generations. It became a World Heritage Site in 1987 and you'll understand why.

What a wonderful excursion! Pablo and Martin, our tour guides, were great! They do their job with enthusiasm and joy. Their knowledge of the biosphere park is so great that they gave us exciting background information - in addition to the impressions of the flora and fauna. The entire excursion was perfectly organized (already the mail traffic with the office worker Paola was fast and very friendly, the bus driver Luis drove very carefully). We were picked up from the hotel on time and brought back on time. We are happy to recommend both the organizer and the two companions Pablo and Martin. THANK YOU for the unique day!

This excursion will remain etched in my memory. Thanks to Filipe and Nikita and the boat driver Gaspardo, we had the chance to see: dolphins, turtles, manatees, a crocodile, rays, lots of fish and birds. It was incredible: cruise in the mangroves, snorkeling in the sea, lunch in a heavenly place, everything was perfect!

Everything was perfect ! Felipe, Martin and Claudio were really nice and passionate about their work. We learned a lot of things, we had the chance to see a lot of animals (in respect of the latter! We are far from mass tourism). The organization was perfect, the lunch was very nice. We recommend with eyes closed!
