Great place for the more rustic traveler. Not many tourists here, but totally worth the trip, especially if you are already at Coba. Nice lake for canoeing, zip-line, nature walks (to see the monkeys) and shaman ceremony. The folks running the place are very knowledgeable and accommodating.

Went there with a group of friends and was amazed. There are so many things to do. From canoeing to descending into a Cenote, expect a day full of activities. We even got to see some monkeys! Truly recommend this place. Only down side is that it is a long drive from Tulum

We had wonderful guide, Manuel, who spoke english and was very informative about the flora and fauna of the jungle we were walking through. We got to see monkeys up close which was an incredible experience.

We took the 'Mayan Inland Expedition' offered by Mexican Kan tours at a pretty hefty price but it was so well worth it. It was one of the best days I have ever spent. We went to Coba and climbed the pyramid, we were lowered into a cenote which was way out of my comfort zone, we swam in the... More

First, we were blessed in a ceremony by an elder who asked permission from forest. We were then guided by a wonderfully proud Maya who answered all our questions of the medicinal plants, and structures of the wondrous wonderland of the forest. Then we see wild Spider Monkeys in all their glory, playing content and peacefully, then we canoed gracefully... More

Wish I could have coaxed my family out of bed earlier, but even though we arrived after 10am, our guide, Mariano, still managed to find two groups of spider monkeys and a family of howler monkeys. Our group consisted of me, my husband our two boys aged 6 & 8 and grandma aged 72. This was a bit of a... More

Took us about an hour of relatively easy driving from Tulum to Punta Laguna, but the last leg of the journey is a narrow highway in the jungle with a few tiny villages interspersed so be careful (especially of the stray dogs). Rustic local feel here. The site is off the beaten path and not touristy in the slightest. We... More

From the Turquoise-browed Motmot to the HOWLer Monkeys, the nature opportunities were at every turn. Our guide was Alfredo, and he did a superb job finding all the natural hidden treasures, and communicated well in English. I learned a lot - for me, that equals a successful tour. Sure, there were a couple of events that were a bit gimmicky,... More

We visited Punta Laguna with our two children ages 15 and 12. I think all of us can honestly say this was one of our favorite things of our ten-day trip in the Yucatán. Our guide, Agusto, spoke excellent English. He was very informative. We saw howler and spider monkeys. We visited at about 1 o'clock in the afternoon. We... More

Wow, this is off the beaten path, and even when you get there, it certainly doesn't give the appearance of being a touristy type of place... In fact, we drove right by it the first time. It's a bit of a haul from Cancun or Tulum. We drove there from Tulum and it took us around 90 mins to get... More
