Punta Laguna and Coba Day Trip

1. Punta Laguna and Coba Day Trip

Above you, a monkey is playing high up in the treetops. In the distance, you hear bird calls and the buzz of friendly insects keeping this lush jungle alive. At the natural reserve and monkey sanctuary of Punta Laguna, you will co-exist with this amazement of nature, and enjoy a peaceful and active day enjoying this stunning reserve. Your specialized guide will take you to the archaeological site of Coba, one of the most important of the region. This Pre-Columbian Maya civilization is surrounded by two beautiful lagoons, and a series of elevated stone and plaster roads which radiate from the central site to various smaller sites near and far. Here you can explore several large temple pyramids, some reaching as high as 138ft (42m) in height! We also have the chance to cool off in some of the most beautiful cenotes (sink-holes) this area has to offer. Afterwards, we can enjoy typical Mayan cuisine by the lake, before witnessing a grand Mayan ceremony! And if you're up for it, you can even take a zip-line through the high treetops of this incredible area. The choices are yours, and we make sure that there are plenty of opportunities for hiking, observing the wildlife, taking a canoe out, or just relaxing in this stunning jungle reserve!

2. From Quintana Roo: Ek Balam Mayan Ruins and Cenote Day Trip

Take a day trip to the Ek Balam Mayan ruins and explore its impressive structures. Experience a spiritual Mayan ceremony and enter a cenote, sacred to Mayan culture. Rappel and slackline through geological formations and swim in picturesque waters. Depart from your hotel in Cancún or Riviera Maya and head to Ek Balam, an ancient Mayan complex thought to be a sacred city. Visit the "White House of Reading," constructed by the Maya ruler Ukit Kan Le'k Tok'. View its symbolism with themes relating to the underworld. Experience a shaman-led Mayan ceremony to ask for permission to go inside the cenote. Enter the cenote and enjoy activities such as rappelling, slacklining, or swimming. Have fun with Tarzan-like vines and cool off in crystalline waters.

Riviera Maya: Morning Birdwatching Tour and Muyil Ruins

3. Riviera Maya: Morning Birdwatching Tour and Muyil Ruins

Away from the resorts and beaches of The Riviera Maya lays the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized as home to over 300 species of birds, 400 species of fish, 100 mammals, and 40 amphibians. Journey into this rich natural habitat and spot unique bird species in the heart of the Mayan jungle. Start the day early with 5:00 AM pickup from your hotel and head into the jungle. Accompanied by a knowledgeable birding guide, spot colorful tropical birds and learn about their natural habitat. In addition, visit the Muyil ruins within the reserve. These ruins draw significantly fewer visitors than Chichen Itza or Tulum and allow you to enjoy an unobstructed view of the site.  At the end of the tour, hotel drop-off will be provided.

What people are saying about Puerto Aventuras

A great day outdoors in Tulum

Guide Alberto picked us all from our hotels as mentioned on the tickets. We had an hour’s drive to Coba, whilst learning Mayan history in a very comfortable car. We had a fun easy bike tour of all the significant ruins. It was still early and not crowded! We learnt fun facts about some endemic birds and plants. Then had snacks during a short drive to a hidden treasure Cenote in the forest, which had a beautiful emerald colour. We then had an opportunity to visit a local family farm where they are working on preserving endangered bird species, producing honey and growing most of the vegetables they eat. We had a delicious typical Mexican lunch, including freshly made tortillas. In the afternoon, following a Mayan blessing, we did short forest walk, spotted lots of spider monkeys, including baby ones, zip-lined across a lagoon (okay even if you are scared of heights) and then crossed the lagoon in a canoe with the guide. All in all a fantastic day with a lovely group & guide Alberto.

We can warmly recommend this experience as a tour group. We have already made a lot of trips in many countries, but that was one of the best, if not the best ever. Our guide Tanja and the chauffeur, who was more than just our driver, explained the visited private cenote, the paradise of Don Manuel, the zipline trip and the excursion to the monkeys so beautifully and filled all our wishes so that we only everyone who only comes near here, you absolutely have to experience this experience with Tanja and Oskar. Also the slightly spiritual part with the cleansing and blessing from a real Maja shaman was so nice. In addition, the number of words and the words I know would not be enough to describe this experience fairly. Just book and enjoy

We had a great experience biking around the Coba ruins, visiting Manuel's home and animal rescue area, swimming in a cenote, zip lining, canoeing, and seeing Monkeys. Our guide, Santi, was excellent. A kind and open soul with a passion for the earth and people.

Varied, informative, exciting and entertaining ... Manuel "the italian" offered us a great day with lots of activities!

Eddy knows all the places where the different birds hide themselves. Thank you for this beautiful birding morning.
