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.

Kudos for Aldo, our guide through Sian Ka'an. He limits his tours to 6 people (ours was just our family, 4) which makes it very intimate and educational. We were picked up at our hotel (on time) and taken to his boat on the reserve. Aldo is a native of the area and has great knowledge and perspective of the area. The trip took us through the bay, through the Mayan canals with a stop at the Muyil ruins and ended the day with the canal 'float'. Great experience. Aldo is friendly and genuinely cares about giving you the full educational experience. Nice lunch mid-way, fresh mangos and locally made tamales (yum). Stay away from the large 'bus' type tours and go with this guy, definitely worth it.

Our wedding party stayed at Casa Maya Kaan in the Sian Kaan Biosphere and the wedding and reception for 47 was at the house. It is beautiful in the Biosphere and highly recommended a trip there. Barracuda and crabs were caught on the jungle side and cooked by our local chef. Fabulous!

The very long and extremely bumpy road to Punta Allen is worth it - Beautiful mangroves and birds - saw a few turtles and best snorkeling in Riviera Maya - great reef and many, many colorful fish

We would like to thank en recommend Capt. Bambi. He organizes excellent boat tours in the lagoon without mass tourism. We've had a great 3 - 4 hour trip and saw many of the wild life there!

very beautiful lagoon and place in general! well worth the trip, although we only went to the visitor center and not Pt Allen. Operators take you on a boat thru canals and then you float for about 30 mins.... wish I could be there right now! (instead of sitting in my office writing this review ;))
