Description

Experience the rich biodiversity and dense flora of the Punta Laguna! An ecological reserve 13,000 acres in size, this diverse jungle is home to a variety of animals including spider monkeys, howling monkeys, coatimundis, peccaries, deer, and exotic birds. You will wander through ancient Mayan ruins hidden within the jungle or canoe leisurely on a lake. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can fly through the treetops along a zip line, and rappel down a cenote (natural sinkhole) to where 117 ancient Mayan skulls were found. Follow your guide through the jungle in search of monkey­s and much more!

After, you’ll bike around the ecological reserve and archaeological site that is Coba. Marvel at the well­-preserved stelae (large stones with ancient Mayan inscriptions on them). Climb one of the tallest temples in the Yucatan Peninsula and admire the stunning view of the jungles that surround this huge ancient city. You’ll end with a swim in the cool clear waters of a cenote and leave with some amazing pictures of the unique and interesting rock formations. Come join this exciting and unique adventure through the Mayan jungles of Mexico and experience this otherworldly habitat of Mother Earth.

Gudelio and Team

I was born and raised in Monterrey, México. I've been in love with my country, its traditions, and its pre­hispanic cultures since I was a kid. When I first learned about the ancient cultures of Mexico, I was fascinated and sought out any archaeology, Maya, or Aztec book I could get my hands on. I also love nature so much that, in my youth, I would take long hikes in the mountains that surround my hometown, sometimes camping out for a whole week. There’s nothing I love more than a bonfire under a sky full of stars. Deciding to experience other cultures, I moved to California for 4 years and was immersed in the diversity of American culture. I loved getting to meet people from all over the world. It was an experience that widened my view of the world and showed me the differences in people’s histories and languages. I then traveled around the U.S., Cuba, Belize, Spain, and Honduras.

When I finally returned to Mexico, I moved to the Yucatan peninsula because I had always dreamed of its beaches and wanted to be closer to Mayan culture. Moving to Cancun was a dream come true. Its coast is beautiful, its jungle lush, and its Mayan heritage strong. After that, I fell in love with Playa del Carmen and decided to move here after a few years because of its small town atmosphere and the diversity of the people that pass through. I traveled around a lot of Mexico, but still have a lot to explore and learn. I've called the Yucatan Peninsula my home since 2008 and wouldn't trade it for anything.
