TL;DR: This is a great experience in the outdoors, and is not touristy (Mayan ceremony aside). It's cheap, and entirely worth the drive! Plan ahead with what you bring and wear, because this is not a zoo, but a jungle. I traveled with a party of 4 adults all in good shape and good health. We only walked around with... More

We were told by our hotel manager to visit Punta Laguna as we were staying in Coba and there isn't much around Coba to do. It's a pretty cool place. It's easily accessible and just about 20 minutes from Coba. The cost for both my husband and I was about 600 Pesos, and that was to do a small zip... More

We did this as a package with a tour to the Coba ruins. We drove through a narrow road through the jungle, passing through several small Mayan villages on our way. Once there we started with a Mayan prayer ceremony, which set the mood as we hiked through the jungle with our guides, looking for monkeys. We soon saw a... More

Run by third and fourth generation Mayan hosts. You get to see monkeys, partake in a Mayan prayer with a shaman, take a canoe trip, do a zip line across a like, repel and swim in a cenote, and hear stories of the land... all over 2 1/2 hours and for a bargain. You can do a-la-carte if you prefer... More

Don't go to Akumel to see the monkeys!!! this place is where you want to go to see monkeys in their natural habitat. we were brought here by our local taxi driver who recommended after we mentioned about being disappointed by the monkey sanctuary price and ho crowded it was. Punta Laguna is located a little out of the way... More

I liked Punta Laguna so much I came back twice. For a bird watcher, it has a lot to offer. I came for a guided hike in the evening, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the abundant spider moneys, a howler money, and wide variety of birds. I came again early in the morning, and saw an even greater number birds --... More

I visited Punta Laguna after going to Coba. You must have a guide to show you round and mine was very helpful. You can go into cenotes and paddle canoes here, but I'm a birder and just wanted to walk around the forest. On the way I saw cenotes as well as spider monkeys and a Howler monkey. The birds... More

We had a rental car and had visited Tulum at 9am. From other reviews I knew we didn't want to arrive before noon to have a better chance of seeing the monkeys without too much hiking. We arrived around noon and yes, it does feel like it's in the middle of no where, if you're driving yourself. We brought a... More

This is really an amazing experience. It's the kind of unique, off-the-beaten-path activity that makes a whole vacation worthwhile.

I booked an eco-tourism with Mexican Kan Tours and started our journey at this beautiful, breath taking reserve. Upon arrival, we were allowed to use on site (ultra clean) restrooms to change/ use facilities before our little trek into the reserve. I was pleasantly surprised to witness how eco-friendly the digienous community whom take care of restroom maintainance were as... More
