Nice lazy tour and pretty nature
Anna_J, Dec 2022
We hadn’t really understood the concept but this is what we did: went on a boat, floated in the Mayan channels, walked back maybe 10 minutes to the boat, took the boat back to the shore. Drove to the archeological site, had a look and drove to the restaurant nearby. The lunch was good and the atmosphere nice. The guide was kind to take pictures and share them for free. This was a very nice lazy tour!
Great way to explore biosphere

We had such an amazing time on this tour! Salvador was very sweet and informative on the ruins and the ecosystem and he even brought us homemade empanadas! The photos he took during the tour came out amazing too! Highly recommend!
Great and quiet private tour

We had a great private tour with Salvador! He is very knowledgeable, friendly and laid back. We booked rather late but it was no problem! Easy communication with no issues. Salvador took lots of pictures (which was shared with us online) and we had some very tasty mini bananas and mangos that was provided during our excursion. The Muyil ruins were very interesting and the river float was amazing! There were almost no people around either which made it even nicer. Would definitely recommend this tour and company. Thanks Salvador!

I am very happy I chose this trip to Muyil lagoon, its probably one of the prettiest outings I’ve done. Salvador was a great guide I would definitely do it again next time in Tulum
