Spend the day discovering Sian Ka'an on this trip from Cancún, Playa del Carmen, or Tulum. Marvel at the beauty of this UNESCO-listed nature reserve, and see the area's animals on a guided boat trip. Stop for lunch in Punta Allen, and discover Bird Island. Begin the tour early in the morning, and head toward Tulum in a van if you begin the tour in Cancún or Playa del Carmen. Once in Tulum, enter Sian Ka'an in a van and drive toward the dock to begin the real adventure by boat. Upon arrival at the boat, hop aboard and set off for a 3-hour tour of Sian Ka'an. Pass through narrow canals, and learn about the flora and fauna of the region from your guide. As you listen, keep an eye out for manatees, crocodiles, dolphins, and other wildlife. Make a stop at the fishing village of Punta Allen to savor a local lunch. After lunch, continue the boat tour and go birdwatching on Bird Island.
