If you like to see small town Mexico, this is the place for you. Deep in the jungle, you repel down into a secret lagoon completely underground. You have no idea what you are doing until you hit the water. Then after you find you way out of the lagoon, you treck through jungle again, howler monkeys and jaguars in... More

If you want to get away from large groups and have a more authentic Mayan experience this is a good place to go. You will be supporting a village cooperative to practice sustainable tourism that provides employment to the local people. This a well run Nature Reserve with knowledgable guides and gives you a real taste of life in the... More

If you want to see monkeys in the wild, this is your best bet in the north Yucatan Peninsula. Located a few miles northeast of Coba, this nature park was created & is operated by a group of dedicated local Mayans who for a fee will take you into the forest to see mostly spider monkeys & possibly howlers. The... More

Be on the watch for the spider monkeys swinging through the trees at the Punta Laguna Nature Reserve. Also be sure you have your hiking boots as the trail is rough.

A short (20km) drive from the Coba roundabout, this is a nice, low key adventure to tack on to a trip to the Coba ruins and Cenote. We got there at 4p which turned out to be a great time to see the spider monkeys moving through the trees. They don't come down so you have to have sharp eyes... More

We paid for the 1-hour guided tour to see spider monkeys. The hike ended up lasting closer to two hours and we were able to see lots of wildlife, a cenote, caves, and an enormous Guanacaste tree. It was a very beautiful and serene experience. One note, which certainly doesn't detract from the experience, but should come as a warning:... More
