Enjoy one of the most peaceful and unique experience in the Riviera Maya. After visiting the archeological site of Muyil, you will enter by the western side of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere to catch a boat and sail through the biosphere to reach the ancient water canals built by the Mayans more than five hundred years ago.

Then, among the mangroves and the crystal waters, you will enter the slow flowing river with your lifejackets and float down the river for about 3/4 of a mile before going back to the boats.
