What you'll do

In the Kayaking and Snorkeling Sunset tour, we will first explore by snorkeling in an open mangrove cenote to learn what lives underneath its intricated root system. After swimming slowly, relaxing for about 1 hr, we share some fruits and healthy snacks. Then we move a few minutes into the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve to the Caapechen lagoon where we will be kayaking through the mangroves mazes and bird islands while the sunlight starts to make very beautiful effects on the horizons as the birds fly to their sleeping areas. While kayaking and enjoying the amazing landscapes we share some tamales or other Mexican foods that are easy to eat on a kayak. When the sun disappears in the horizon and the birds have flown back to their rookeries we paddle back to the pier where we talk about our next adventures.
