We had a great visit to Punta Lagunas- walked the remote jungle and saw monkeys, iguanas and birds. We canoed in a lake, zip-lined, and rappelled into a cenote-- friendly people and amazing history. Thanks 'Gato' and team.

Saw the sun set from this beautiful mystical spot. The monkeys were absolutely adorable. The nature sounds out of a National Geographic documentary. Don't miss it!

First time to Mexico. Really wanted to see some cenotes. I found Punta Laguna on trip advisor, decided to hire a car as no taxi drivers knew where it was! It’s very much out in the sticks but follow the link from their Facebook page...More

So cool to see the monkeys swinging around right above you. They get so close (not quite close enough to touch) but we were shocked at how many monkeys were out playing. The zipline is also a solid one.

We saw many spider and howler monkeys in actions when we showed in early morning. The short zip lining site reached by a brief canoe ride is fun.
