Sian Kaan and other treasured places to discover in Tulum

A journey into ancient history and nature far from human trace

Begin an adventure to one of the places where nature is everything, where time doesn’t exist, nor the remains of a civilization that has consumed everything that is blue and green, where living beings keep on flying and swimming in harmony while we, humans, stare at them in awe. Discover a magical Caribbean paradise that preserves its natural beauty and resources in which we are only visitors.

Not very far from Cancun (2 hours away) lies the beautiful and picturesque town of Tulum with its cultural, natural and historical soul. Its precious hallmark consists on an archaeological site on a cliff by the sea that used to be an important nautical port for the ancient Mayans.

Another relevant archaeological site stands in the heart of the Mayan jungle in Sian Kaan natural reserve only 10 miles from Tulum downtown. Muyil will welcome you with its majestic buildings and lush vegetation, home for the ancient Mayan spirits and endemic fauna and flora species.

After hiking among cultural and historical magical remains, Sian Kaan biosphere natural reserve lagoons will refresh your body and mind. Submerge yourself in the beautiful crystal clear channels, take a boat (accessible through locals offering boat rides to visitors) and admire this place of nature, blessed with so much life and colors. Stare at birds and fishes in their natural habitat, feel the oxygen in your lungs, be glad to be alive!

Last but not least, discover a cenote; the whole area is filled with those gorgeous natural wells of blue and fresh water considered sacred for the Mayan civilization. Kayaking, diving and snorkeling are three of the most important activities to enjoy in the cenotes.

Far from the hustle and bustle, far from your responsibilities and worries, give yourself a sip of fresh air and enjoy a date with Mother Nature in Sian Kaan in the Riviera Maya.

Xplor Tour Cancun and Riviera Maya


If you are looking for strong emotions and adrenaline in the heights, the Xplor Park tour is just what you need. The park is near Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya and not far from Cancun. It takes about an hour to get there and the adventure begins from the moment one arrives at the entrance of Xplor park, for a cavern that will take you to live an unforgettable adventure full of speed in the heights awaits you.

The van leaves relatively early to Xplor, is a journey on road that passes very quickly because here in the Riviera Maya there is no traffic. Arriving at the Park you will not know where to start but the circuits in raft are an excellent choice, and why not? Take the two of them and row with the special oars attached to your hands. Then you can swim in the incredible underground river full of stalactites and other rock formations that simply beautify the scenery along the route.

After admiring that much underground beauty, go for a refreshing shake at “El Oasis” – where other energizing drinks are also served – and then rush into the impressive 2 zip line circuits with 14 zip lines with extremely fun landings on water. In the “Deer” circuit you will feel the excitement at full speed; and the second circuit, “Jaguar”, is not far behind, for the mixture between height and speed is just the perfect combination!

And to take full advantage of this incredible Xplor tour, directly continue to the amphibious vehicles – amazing vehicles that look like small jeeps – and give a dizzying ride through the jungle on winding roads filled with vegetation, hanging bridges and dark underground caves that will give one touch of adrenaline to your Xplor tour in the Riviera Maya.

Last but not least, the lunch hour, mmm… eat deliciously with the buffet of salads, pastas, meats, desserts and many other culinary delights that will make you regain strength. You will spend an amazing day from the beginning to the end in the Xplor Park Cancun tour, that’s for sure!

Rio Secreto (Secret River) provides a magical journey that will bring to life the stories of mystical Mayan underworld, Xibalba … A fun tour on a real underground river, where you can admire the carved wonders over millions of years in the limestone, between clear water, caverns of outstanding beauty. This is an “alive” natural museum, unique in the world. Before opening its doors, Rio Secreto required a year of intense exploration that as for today it only has completed 10 km and 1.5 km so far open to the public. It has three routes: Supreme, Palaces, and Joy, all  accept only 144 visitors a day, with the purpose of conserving the area and generate the least impact. The pat is not dangerous or deep, 20 meters is the maximum depth for  reaching the fall. To swim down to what appears to be the center of the earth you don’t require almost  anything, just a wet suit, swim shoes and a helmet with a lamp, and they provide all of it.

Step into one of the most fascinating places in the world: the basement of the Yucatan Peninsula. While being there, you will discover the importance of preserving nature so that others can enjoy it the same as you. I promise that Rio Secreto will be one of the most beautiful places you’ve known in your life. Rio Secreto is very closed to Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico.
