The Muyil tour is a must to discover how the Maya trade worked. You will enjoy a boat ride through the Mayan channels and understand why they dug them. You will learn how to make tortilla and guacamole in a remote Mayan village of mass tourism and discover how the locals live.

Located south of Tulum at 20 km, the archaeological site of Muyil is in the middle of the jungle. Even if it is not very known, it attracts some visitors because here it is cooler and there reigns a rather mysterious atmosphere.

At the end of this site is a path that takes you to the Chunyaxché lagoon. So you walk through the jungle to admire the flora between marshy and wet areas. The vegetation is abundant and apart from the song of the birds it is the absolute calm.





This area is particularly rich in fish, rays, green turtles and loggerhead turtles.
