Owner description: If you are looking for a great outdoor experience away from the big tourist crowds and massive tour groups, then you make the best decision by visiting the natural Reserve of Sian Ka'an with Visit Sian Ka'an. This tour company allows you to visit Sian Ka'an and combine activites in a way, that no other tour provider does, thanks to the owner's first hand experience and being a native to the area. If you are a great nature lover, enjoy to snorkel and explore the diverse marine life and different ecosystems, such as untouched beaches, lagoons, mangroves and islands, cenotes, tropical jungle, hidden maya ruins, a relaxing float in the fresh water canal, seeing bird and wildlife in their natural habitat without minimal human interaction - then this tour company will be a great option for an adventurous day in the protected Biosphere Reserve Sian Ka'an.

“A unique and memorable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We spent the day with Aldo from " visitsiakaan". He was exceptional to say the least. This reserve holds a wealth of unique eco systems and with Aldo as our guide we were able to go deep inside the preserve and visit many varied eco areas and Aldo took great pride in sharing his knowledge and passion for the area. From spectacular hidden lagoons to magical Mayan ruins and canals, to listening to Aldo's many stories of the local flora and fauna. While many tours are available a tour with Aldo is a unique experience that will prove memorable and educational. This is a priceless area and is worth getting a private tour with a guide like Aldo who is dedicated to providing a quality experience. Highly recommended.

“Kayaking bird tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

what a great tour! learn about Mayans, birds, the land, the ecosystem in the Yucatan and more! They have showers there, so bring a towel if you'd like to freshen up before your meal (which is included).

“One of the Most Beautiful Places In The World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

This protected biological reserve was the highlight of my trip to Tulum. At once pristine and romantic, the stretch of beach and clear blue green sea will take your breath away. Go on one of the guided tours through the fresh water canals, go kayaking, spend the day exploring or do nothing at all but be in one of the most beautiful, untouched places you'll ever experience.

“Natural Wonders”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

This place seems a step back in time.. a 2 hour drive through the jungle on dirt raods gets you to this hidden paradise where you can sea turtles, dolphins and the worlds second largest coral reef untouched.
