Such a fun afternoon touring the lagoons and floating the canals. Highly recommend this ifyou are looking to escape the crowds and take in some beautiful scenery. Really enjoyed a nice peaceful float down the freshwater canals that are crystal clear and feature some beautiful birds and scenery

We had a great time exploring the biosphere from the mouth of the ocean, where they let you snorkel, to the canal that was created hundreds of years ago by the Maya. We got to swim in the canal and float down it - the water was a beautiful aqua color and so clear that you could see the fish... More

Really enjoyed this day in Sian Ka'an nature reserve. Aldo was very knowledgeable. We moved at about the right pace so we got time to have a good look at the places we visited.

They take you out on a boat in canals that were dug by the Mayans. You are allowed to float in them with a life vest. There are bigger lakes where we saw manatees surface. We even saw a crocodile in one of the canals (not where floated...). Very cool and relaxing place. Well preserved.

So much fun for all ages, including older adults! One of my favorite parts of the vacation. Was on a private biosphere tour and saw some Mayan Ruins, then had lunch and went on this short amazing tour.
