About two-and-a-half hours south of Cancun, this UNESCO World heritage site occupies 1.3 million acres of wild tropical forest and marine sanctuary, with few villages. The biosphere contains a small area of Mayan ruins open for visiting, but the main attraction is the beauty of the forest, the untouched coast and wildlife, including endangered species. Currents in canals between shores covered in reeds and arching trees provide a perfect lazy ride on tires. The best way to plan a full-day trip from Cancun is via the NGO (non-government organization) Centro Ecologico Sian Ka’an.
