Safari Caribbean Style

The Sian Kaan Biosphere is 1.6 million acres and is recognized by the UNESCO program "Man and the Biosphere" with three aims: conservation, research and promoting sustainable development. This tour will give you great insights into the biodiversity of the biosphere. It is a unique experience surrounded by the natural beauty of the area. "The first time we saw dolphins in the wild off the coast of Punta Allen it was like being on safari! Everyone keep your eyes peeled for the dorsal fin popping up out of the water. This small-group tour offers an intimate nature excursion. Some of the largest Loggerhead sea turtles we have ever seen are spotted around Punta Allen. Waterfowl of many varieties nest within the mangrove islands. Look for a Boat-billed Heron which is a beautiful bird and is indigenous to Mexico, Peru and Brazil. A magical day for all." - Kay Walten, CEO Loco Gringo.
