This is a nature reserve run by Mayan locals to enable them to stay in the place of their ancestors. We were taken on a tour with a local guide, by far the best way to go into the reserve. It cost 70 pesos each to go in, and 300 pesos for the guide. We went deep into the jungle... More

This is the second year I have driven over to go into the reserve. This year did not disappoint either. The bird watching is fantastic as are the monkeys. You can usually see them around 8:30AM in the morning by the entrance. I know there are howler monkeys here as well but didn't hear them and didn't go a long... More

We were trying to give the kids a real "adventure vacation" and this is a great day trip. Deep in the jungle you can see spider monkeys in their natural habitat. It is not a zoo, it is true nature. Be prepared to protect yourself from mosquitoes and enjoy!

Great experience! Easy hike through the jungle to a zip line over the launa. Swimming option after coning back to the dock. just a beautiful experience. Very few people, be sure to check out the ladies hang crafts on your way out a completely different buying experience than on the Tulum strip or in larger places like Chichen Itza.

We loved Punta Laguna. We advise to go around 3pm to get the best chance of seeing the monkeys. We had a one on one tour of the jungle, with a zip line, canoe, and cenote access, which was scary but cool!

We visited in June with two children, ages 11 and 7. We saw several spider monkeys - one with a baby. The canoe ride was fun and peaceful and we also enjoyed the zipline. The cenote was unbelievable. But rappelling into it was a bit scary. The ladder and ropes were attached to a structure that didn't look very safe.... More

This is such a great place to zip line, see Cenotes, Monkeys, birds, Dolphins, Turtles. Just book a tour and they will take you everywhere. Go early in the morning, eco sunblock, eco bug spray, swim suit, water. A lots of Energy to explore. We loved every minute. We will be back soon.

I read reviews about this place and we decided to venture out toward Coba and avoid the crowds. Wise decision! Once you turn off to the right at the roundabout don't worry you are going the correct way! You'll see the remnants of a sign early on, and just keep going for about 20 minutes. You'll pass through a small... More

Really nice Nature trails with birds, spider monkeys, etc. Friendly English (OK maybe Spanglish but fine) speaking guide. We visited 3 times over the years from their modest family beginnings to a better organized entity. They were planning to add basic lodging possibilities last time we went there. That would be nice. If you travel from Tulum to Valladolid this... More

We were impressed with this place. It's large enough to have true habitat for the larger animals; our guide was knowledgeable not only about the flora and fauna, but also about the governance of the reserve and the community; it seems to interweave nature preservation with cultural preservation, rather than pit the two against each other. Oh, and it's fun!... More
