SIAN KA'AN BIOSPHERE
For the nature oriented, Sian Ka’an is a tropical paradise
of superlatives. Sian Ka'an means "where the sky is born" in Mayan – name for
the 1.3 million acres of grass savannas, mangrove lagoons, white sand flats, and
70 miles of the second largest barrier reef in the world.
The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is home to a variety of
rare and spectacular creatures including dolphins, manatees, tropical fish and
hundreds of species of exotic birds.
We will meet our guide and he gives a short information about the Sian Ka’an Bio Preserve.
inexperienced in snorkeling we will give a short introduction, so we will be
ready to go out by boat. We’ll start searching for wild bottlenose dolphins.
There is a group living permanently in Sian Ka'an. Through six years of
operation we have developed a relationship where they come to see us to the same
place, almost every time, not for food but curiosity. Have your cameras ready
for the most amazing pictures!
Same day we will look for Hawksbill and white turtles and
do some bird watching. We will have the opportunity to see birds as pelicans,
bobo, cormoran and other species in their sexual flirting and nesting. Flamingo,
spoon bill, eagles, parrots and herons are common to see.
At the end of the trip we will stop at one of the reefs to
look for starfish, different corals, tropical fish and other reef creatures.
We also stop for a great swim and relax bath in the
beautiful natural swimming pool.
After a traditional Mexican ( seafood too ) lunch on the beach by the lodge, you can just lay
back and relax for a while or explore the local reef close to the shore, before
we will bring you back to your hotel.
RECOMMENDATION: Bring a bathing suit, sunscreen and a towel.
NOTE: An extra charge of $2.00 US dollars to enter the reef (National
park) is not included in the price.
