Sian Kaan Lazy River (Private Tour)

Sian Kaan Lazy River tour is one of the most tranquil things you can experience in Tulum. First we visit the charming archaeological city port of Muyil about (45 min) then we take you on a boat over the turquoise waters of the Chunyaxche freshwater lagoon and look around the ancient Maya outpost “Xlapak,” which means “The old wall” and is made of limestone and built around 1100 AD.
You then hop into the refreshing and slow-moving water of the Muyil and float slowly down a canal that is tucked away from the harsh rays of the sun. When you reach the end, we walk back on the boardwalk through the wetlands about 1km.
After this well have a nice picnic of traditional Yucatec-Mayan food by the lake side.  The lunch can be vegetarian.
