what a great tour! learn about Mayans, birds, the land, the ecosystem in the Yucatan and more! They have showers there, so bring a towel if you'd like to freshen up before your meal (which is included).

This place seems a step back in time.. a 2 hour drive through the jungle on dirt raods gets you to this hidden paradise where you can sea turtles, dolphins and the worlds second largest coral reef untouched.
