Overview

The archaeological site of Muyil is located in the northern part of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere reserve. This ancient Mayan trading post is the perfect place to enjoy astounding Mayan temples such as the 17 meters (57 ft) building known as El Castillo in the incredibly diverse semi-deciduous forest of Sian Ka'an. From the archaeological site you will take an interpretive trail towards the tallest observation point of Sian Ka'an to admire the exuberant vegetation of the jungle and the fresh water wetlands. Once you reach the Muyil lagoon, you will take a boat across two lagoons connected by an artificial canal that has been in use for many centuries. Xlapak is the name of the building at the beginning of the lazy river and the start of an incredible floating experience in crystal clear pluvial water on its way to the Caribbean ocean. You will float for over 30 minutes surrounded by mangroves,  orchids, bromeliads. A delicious vegetarian picnic with seasonal fruits is included in the tour.

Beautiful preserve, very knowledgeable and friendly guide. The local food we had was better than any restaurant in Cancun, it was actual Mexican food!

What a great tour, in all aspects! Where else can you learn about Mayan ruins and also float in a beautiful, natural lazy river? Probably the best tour my wife and I have ever done in 15 trips to Riviera Maya since 1998. The Muyil ruins are very interesting and our guide Claudio was fantastic....
