We had an enjoyable time, especially with Karen, our tour guide, who was able to give us knowledge and information about the area. She was a great facilitator and guide and even shared some of her own recommendations of the area.
About the tour: there were 9 of us, everyone picked up directly from their hotel, we drove to Sian Ka'an, road is a bit bumpy to the area where we take 2 small boats. We took boats out onto the Lagoon and saw various species of birds and plants. We saw a manatee, sting ray, and crocodile. The boat then took us out into the ocean area, where Karen led our snorkel adventure. We saw a shark (the harmless kind), a turtle, and countless fish. Karen was able to point out the marine life and made us feel safe in the waters. We then went to an area where there are dolphins and saw multiple dolphins up close! We ended with heading to the town of Punta Allen for lunch and then headed back.
It was a long day trip. We enjoyed it and were able to spend a wonderful day in nature!
