The tour in Sian Kaan was very nice, but unfortunately too short. Unfortunately, we didn't see many animals and we didn't really look for them. The guide could tell a lot of interesting things about the ruins. After lunch we went swimming in a cenote. The tour was a bit expensive but Sian Kaan is highly recommended and not too touristy either.

Dolphins, turtles and snorkeling in the coral reef were great. Even if the snorkeling itself was a bit fast, we saw a lot of corals and fish. The arrival was negative. The ropes laid on the streets so that the frenzy is slowed down can go badly on the cross.

Usually it would be a 3 out of 5 but because I found the guide and the captain very good, I make a 4 out of it. The excursion is fine, but nothing more. One spends relatively little time in the Sian Ka'an biosphere and relatively much on the way there. We consisted of a group of only 6 people which was very pleasant. We saw dolphins and turtles (very close and relatively unrushed). Snorkeling was far too short for me. The food was delicious by default. It was very good for being at the end of the world.
