Our family didn't want to do the usual out trip from the all inclusive hotel so we found this one! We don't believe in riding and kissing dolphins, so this trip was a perfect solution.
A Trek through the jungle in a jeep. An awesome Tour Guide. Fabulous boating experience...visiting dolphins and sea turtles in the wild, a snorkelling experience in the middle of nowhere. Hanging out on this beautiful backdrop in shallow clear waters. A fantastic lunch with fresh lobster from the fishing village. We had a blast. We will never forget it.

I was afraid of this being a tourist foolish trip it was not. We got our jeep and take the most incredible drive of all vacations the guide Aida was excellent and Ricardo the boat captain was really the best in town. Yes you don´t only take the jeep tour but you also get a long time in boat to see dolphins we saw like 8 turtles birds and get your snorkeling time and spend some time swimming in “the pool” a spot of the sea may be 4 feet deep where you can swim or relax
There are other companies offering the tour for what I saw use espacio natura don´t fall for imitations

great trip out, the guide was knowledgeable. It is a good journey but the end results are worth it. we got to see wild dolphins and loggerhead turtles in the wild.

Fred the guide was great company though the ecological speech at the end was overlong for me as a guest, it did show Fred's passion in the subject.

a must do trip

If you like driving in a line through a Natural Reseve then find 100 other people in the village of Punta Allen trying to park their jeep just somewhere (there are all around this little village), just to follow one single dolphin with 15 other boats and then try to snorkel without hitting your neighbours fins... if that's your style - then this tour is for you. I would highly recommend to rent a jeep on your own, drive down carefully and enjoy the nature on your way, take a boat early in the morning and see the wonders of the Biosphere before the jeep tour expedition arrives.

My husband and I chose this tour out of many offered, because it felt like it would be more authentic. Sian Ka'an is a UNESCO biosphere. As we travel we trust UNESCO as one of our travel guides. Our experience was certainly authentic. It is true that the ride is about two hours once you reach Tulum. We chose the open air truck, holding about 30-40, instead of the jeep for four. We wanted to observe nature more than drive a jeep. We also were able to meet other travelers and learn from our guide more about the biosphere. Our guide, Richard, really made the trip come alive. His enthusiasm became contagious. It was a great adventure, especially if you like fast boat rides, snorkeling, swimming in an A+ lagoon. The lunch was hearty, authentic Mexican. Recommend it. But not if you have a bad back! The road was rugged with lots of pot holes.
