A wonderful place if you like nature and a local Mayan experience. It is about 20 minutes down a very long straight road off the Cobá junction. We came here on the strength of other reviews from various sites and we weren't disappointed. The entry fee includes a native Mayan guide and our guide, Angel, was very informative. He spoke...

The monkeys were everywhere, easy to spot and mesmerizing. The butterflies and caterpillars were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The jungle was absolutely beautiful and the lagoon was stunning and refreshing.

Our family visited the reserve and enjoyed the whole experience, we went in the late afternoon and were privileged to see a group of adolescent spider monkeys as well as, a mama and her baby. We zip lined across the lake and enjoyed a refreshing swim in the cenote. We also were happy to purchase some beautifully made jewelry and... More

The zip line, canoeing, hike, and rappelling were all great activities to tie together in one place, and we saw spider monkeys the minute we stepped into the forest. I took off a star for the fact that I felt a little rushed on the hike so that I wasn't able to enjoy the beauty of the forest as much... More

My visit here was on the short side as it was very hot outside. A guide is required and I don't remember the exact cost but it wasn't much. I opted to take the canoe over to where the spider monkeys are and opted out of hiking and zip lining as I had done that the day before. My guide... More

I spent an amazing afternoon in an authentic Mayan village, watching monkeys in their natural habitat swing in trees right above me, and swimming in a cenote that Mayans used before the Spaniards ever stepped foot on the land. I even got to participate in a traditional Mayan blessing ceremony. Angel was my guide, and he was patient, friendly, and... More

We expected it to be hotter and steamier once in the jungle but surprisingly it was quite cool. We didn't really get the most from our visit as there isn't much happening in the early afternoon - 5-6 pm is clearly better. Unfortunately, my husband isn't terribly mobile. Thankfully he had his stick with him else it would have been... More

We hired a taxi from Tulum to wait for us while we toured, then drove us back for $62 USD. We arrived at 8am when they opened and paid 300 pesos for the guide, Jose, and 100 pesos each for entry into the reserve. We did put on some insect repellent and wore good tennis shoes for the hike through... More
