SIAN KA’AN BIOSPHERE
For the nature oriented, Sian Ka’an is a tropical paradise of superlatives. Sian Ka’an means “where the sky is born” in Mayan – name for the 1.3 million acres of grass savannas, mangrove lagoons, white sand flats, and 70 miles of the second largest barrier reef in the world.
The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is home to a variety of rare and spectacular creatures including dolphins, manatees, tropical fish and hundreds of species of exotic birds.
We will meet our guide and he gives a short information about the Sian Ka’an Bio Preserve.
For those inexperienced in snorkeling we will give a short introduction, so we will be ready to go out by boat. We’ll start searching for wild bottlenose dolphins. There is a group living permanently in Sian Ka’an. Through six years of operation we have developed a relationship where they come to see us to the same place, almost every time, not for food but curiosity. Have your cameras ready for the most amazing pictures!
Same day we will look for Hawksbill and white turtles and do some bird watching. We will have the opportunity to see birds as pelicans, bobo, cormoran and other species in their sexual flirting and nesting. Flamingo, spoon bill, eagles, parrots and herons are common to see.
At the end of the trip we will stop at one of the reefs to look for starfish, different corals, tropical fish and other reef creatures.
We also stop for a great swim and relax bath in the beautiful natural swimming pool.
After a traditional Mexican ( seafood too ) lunch on the beach by the lodge, you can just lay back and relax for a while or explore the local reef close to the shore, before we will bring you back to your hotel.
RECOMMENDATION: Bring a bathing suit, sunscreen and a towel.
NOTE: An extra charge of $3.00 US dollars to enter the reef (National park) is not included in the price.
