We hired a guide when we got to Punta Laguna. You start off with a Mayan ritual ceremony that was very neat to be part of. Our guide then hiked with us through the woods to find monkeys and he was able to call at...More

Very cool find off the beaten path. They have zip-lines, boats, look out tower, dock and a cenote. We were able to see spider monkeys. The water looks even more amazing and clear in person!

This place is a bit off the beaten path, about a 45 minute drive from Tulum, but well worth the visit and very affordable considering all the activities that are included if you decide to do the whole package which our family of 5 (kids...More

Highly recommend as the tour exceed our expectations. The park website often doesn't work, but don't let that put you off. Just show up and ask for the tour. We did the complete package (Jungle Adventure) which includes viewing spider monkeys on a jungle hike,...More

Hi. I don't really fancy an organised tour with a bus load of tourists. Is it possible to arrive by hire car and do which ever tours you fancy? I am travelling with my 2 boys (11&9) and wanted to do a walk in the jungle to see monkeys and birdlife etc. I've seen you can have a local guide but all the costs and web pages I've found are from years ago. Any updated info would be grately received. :)

rent a car or hire a taxi. the reserve has local residents serve as tour guides, definitely hire them.
I am wondering for the 300 pesos pp, does that include the canoe ride, cenote dip etc... also...as for the cenote....is it one person goes down at a time, gets dipped in water, then comes up? or can everyone in our party go at the same time and spend some time down there? is there a ridge or something to stand on once down? or just a water pit? (trying to figure out if i can manage with my claustrophobia, and if its not scary for our 9 yr old? I'm sure my teens will think its cool!) Thanks so much!

When we went in december, the price was 350 pesos and included all of it. The cenote is big enough for 10-20 people, but the ladders descends right in the middle, so you need to spread out to allow others down. My mom was... More
