Aldo was magnificent. Whether piloting our boat through the canals of the Sian Ka'an, picking out the best stretch of coral reef to snorkel, or answering questions about the flora and fauna of this must-see jewel, Aldo was master of the occasion. My wife, daughter, and I spent a day in June 2014 with Aldo, the proprietor of 'Visit Sian... More

My husband and I booked a nature tour with Visit Sian Ka'an and it was great! Aldo was our guide and he was super knowledgable about the area and everything we saw. He even found us several crocodiles! The relaxing float down the canal was the best part of the trip - except for the Yucutan-style tomales that Aldo brought... More

Kudos for Aldo, our guide through Sian Ka'an. He limits his tours to 6 people (ours was just our family, 4) which makes it very intimate and educational. We were picked up at our hotel (on time) and taken to his boat on the reserve. Aldo is a native of the area and has great knowledge and perspective of the... More

Our wedding party stayed at Casa Maya Kaan in the Sian Kaan Biosphere and the wedding and reception for 47 was at the house. It is beautiful in the Biosphere and highly recommended a trip there. Barracuda and crabs were caught on the jungle side and cooked by our local chef. Fabulous!

The very long and extremely bumpy road to Punta Allen is worth it - Beautiful mangroves and birds - saw a few turtles and best snorkeling in Riviera Maya - great reef and many, many colorful fish

We would like to thank en recommend Capt. Bambi. He organizes excellent boat tours in the lagoon without mass tourism. We've had a great 3 - 4 hour trip and saw many of the wild life there!

very beautiful lagoon and place in general! well worth the trip, although we only went to the visitor center and not Pt Allen. Operators take you on a boat thru canals and then you float for about 30 mins.... wish I could be there right now! (instead of sitting in my office writing this review ;))

Sian Ka'an is a huge biological reserve south of the Tulum beach area. There are several ways to get there and many things to see. We took a Community Tour and liked it very much, but covered only a small part of this vast reserve. This is a site that is very worth seeing even if it doesn't get a... More
