Wonderful float down the canal
Erin_M

We were picked up at our hotel by our guide Luigi and our driver. Luigi was super friendly and knowledgeable. Our group had a great time on this tour. Highly recommend it, it has a good combination of walking through the nature reserve, a Mayan ruin and also the highlight was floating down the canal. Everyone really loved this tour! Just remember to bring bug spray and sun tan lotion.

Hidden gem of the tours
Paul_N
, Oct 2021
This is a hidden gem. Away from the crowds (small group) walking in the jungle canopy amongst the ruins and end off with a gentle float down crystal clear canals. This was a highlight of a trip to Mexico and I can’t recommend this enough. Great guide (Cesar), great food and snacks and a wonderful experience.

Scenic experience

This was a much needed break from the fast paced tours of Chichen-Itzá and Xcaret. There are no crowds and you get a little bit of everything, history, culture, and a bit of adventure. Our guide Luigi was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also an expert and trooper in guiding and helping the non swimmers in our group through the lagoon. The lagoon activity is so worth it! It’s scenic, tranquil and relaxing. I would 100% go on this tour again. Thank you to our driver and guide Luigi for giving our family a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Thanks a lot Maricel for choosing Mexico Kan Tours, We are pleased to read you had a lovely day with your family, enjoying the tranquil and relaxing canal swim and learning about mayan history and culture with our knowledgeable guide Luigi! Enjoy the rest of your stay.

Best tour EVER
Alicia_S
, Jul 2021
Let’s me just start off by saying we booked several tours while on our 2 week Mexico vacation and originally booked a different Sian Ka’an tour and I canceled it and I’m glad I did because this was the BEST tour (hands down) we took. Carlos was the most informative tour guide I have ever met and he is also pretty funny. I wasn’t sure what to expect being that we were a family of 5 with 3 kids but Carlos was great and picked us up from our hotel took us on a mini tour of downtown Tulum first. Then we toured Muyil Ruins and it was absolutely beautiful and he was so knowledgeable down to every detail the plants animals not just the ruins. He was so great explaining how everything was connected. There was homemade granola bars and bananas for snacks and once we got through the biosphere to load onto the boats we had to split up because of Covid rules and my daughter was scared and Carlos had to ride with her and did everything possible to calm her down till the ride was over she said. The float down Sian Ka’an was breathtaking and relaxing at the same time If you could believe it and again Carlos never stopped with the knowledge of the area he’s absolutely wonderful. When we got back to the biosphere a wonderful local Mayan family had cooked us homemade Tinga with refried beans on toasted tortillas with cold Jamaica tea to drink and brownies for dessert. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. No lie! (We even tried to find a recipe online and make it at home because we’ve been craving it and we only got home two weeks ago.) We ate it on a park bench looking at the fresh water lake and some beautiful migrate birds that turned pink cause of the water. It couldn’t have been more perfect. If you are considering this your do it! Ask for CARLOS! We even saw him out when visited tulum later that week and he invited us to sit with him and have a drink! Thank you for the best time! The Stoltz’s We love you Carlos!

Wow, thank you so much for sharing this complete and very good review! It's a pleasure to read that you had such a great day with Carlos, and that you enjoyed every aspect of our tour, from A to Z. I'm glad you learned a lot and that you loved the delicious Mayan food, and even tried to make our home made granola bars when you came back home! Hope it will be your Proust Madeleine.

Great trip to cross multiple things off of your Tulum bucket list
Elizabeth_L
, Jul 2021
Iber was our tour guide and he was amazing! The tour is a nice mix of activities so the day went by so quickly. If you only have a few days in Tulum this is a great activity to book since you get to see some of the ruins, get out on a boat on the lagoon and swim in the lazy river in the middle of the mangroves in the jungle all in one trip.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Hi Elizabeth, Thank you so much for your awesome feedback, I'm delighted to read the tour enabled you to cross multiple things off your Tulum bucket list! It's indeed perfect to both learn more about the mayan culture while visiting the archeological site of Muyil, and to enjoy the stunning flora and fauna of the region while floating in the lazy river in Sian Ka'an Biosphere. Come back soon for more adventures !
