Sian Ka'an Muyil
Sian Ka'an Biosphere – Muyil (archaeological site) - Eco-path – Jungle & fresh water wetlands - Ancient trading canals - Floating experience and picnic.
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 jungle of Sian Ka'an.
From the archeological site we 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 we reach the Muyil lagoon, we 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 Sea. We float for over 30 minutes surrounded by mangroves, orchids, bromeliads and cacti while we hear the sounds of nature.
A delicious vegetarian picnic with seasonal fruits is included in the tour.
