But we instead highly recommend taking in the full experience of a boat ride through the lagoons of Sian Ka’an and even a float down a Mayan-dug canal. This all tends to be the highlight of a trip to Sian Ka’an via Muyil. Stops for manatee spotting and watching for dolphins ensue while cruising toward Punta Allen. There is snorkeling at a coral reef and a visit to a sandbank with a beautiful lagoon. Then visit Punta Allen for some time to relax and the included lunch. (It can be lobster, when in season!) Keep an eye out for birds and turtles throughout the voyage. Take a tour on the calm waters of small rivers and lakes, where you’re likely to spot caimans, river dolphins and numerous birds.

Which Version of the Jungle Cruise is Better, Disneyland’s or Disney World’s?

Sian Ka’an boasts a diverse range of ecosystems along its 120 km coastline. Featuring tropical forests, palm savannahs, wetlands, lagoons, mangroves, and sandy beaches, it teems with wildlife. Sian Ka’an is home to manatees, turtles, dolphins, crocodiles, various bird species, and even elusive jaguars and pumas, among others mammals. As for Son Doong and Hang Thung, Limbert says the plan is for the divers to return in 2020 and use special mixed gases to explore even deeper than the 503m plumbed in April. The world’s largest cave may have gotten a lot bigger, but there’s the possibility that it may get bigger still.

The Jungle Cruise attraction features a boat ride through a man-made jungle, with each tour led by a skipper who follows a pun-filled script. The boat travels past crocodiles, piranhas, monkeys, elephants, rhinos, cannibals, hippos and theinfamous Back Side of Water, the eighth wonder of the world. You can get to Rurrenabaque from La Paz by a horrendous, bumpy, 30-hour bus ride or take the scenic 35-minute flight across snowy mountains and into the jungle.

We visited Dec 2022, entry to the ruins was 65 pesos pp and boat trip was 1000 pesos pp which we booked and paid for at the ticket desk of the archaeological site. Entry to the reserve we paid at the start of the boardwalk 50 pesos pp. Arrived at 9.45am and there were only 2 other cars in the car park.

I actually ended up entering for free as I had a Mexican student card . If you don’t want to have to worry about the logistics, wait for bus connections, and find your way, then it’s certainly worth considering one of the many tours to Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. This rickety tower allows you to see well above the jungle canopy.

Our guide told us that the tour is now longer . Thank you for the tips on getting there, it was super useful. The $1,000-peso price of the Sian Ka’an boat trip is a bit steep. Whether it’s worth it may vary from person to person. Personally, we thought it was worth it and think that most others would agree.
