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.

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!

We discovered this reserve, snorkelled, saw manatees, turtles, dolphins, crocodiles, birds in their natural habitat... Go there with your eyes closed!
