Muyil Ruins and Sian Kaan Private Tour


If you want to truly dive into the Mayan culture, you absolutely need to book our Muyil Private Tour. We are now partnering the visit of the Muyil ruins with a boat tour in the Sian Kaan lagoon.


Muyil is one of the oldest Mayan sites in the area and contains natural artifacts dating back 4th Century BC. This area showcases the need for survival in the Mayan culture as it includes canals the Mayans used to connect this inland city to the coast. This was prominent as it allowed for trade to occur!

After you have become engulfed in the culture, our experienced guide will take you walking through the jungle and mangrove to the lagoon.


In order to allow you to have an even more memorable time, once arrived at the lagoons of the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve, our tour allows for our patrons to experience a private boat tour of the reserve’s lagoons and a visit to another small Mayan temple.

Translating to “where the sky is born,” Sian Kaan is one of the area’s most beautiful landscapes. The biosphere is now known for its diverse vegetation and wildlife. We will also get into the water and float in one of the canals to get cooler, and this is actually quite fun as the current swims for you!


We pride ourselves in showing our guests some of the most beautiful aspects of Mexico. From historical ruins to natural biospheres, we provide the best excursions in the area. We look forward to taking you on our exclusive Muyil Private tour!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I booked 2 tours and I was satisfied with their overall professionalism, knowledge, and great customer service. We will definitely use them next time.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    Informative tour and well worth it, relaxing way to learn some history about the region. Ruins are smaller than Tulum but without the crowds! The tour takes you to different lagunes, through Mayan canal. Best for nature lover. Our guide was knowlegable and humorous.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    This was a one of a kind experience! Flotting in the mayan canals was enjoyable and the boat tour is great. Muyil ruins definitely worth a visit!
