We decided to visit Sian Ka'an after going through a self-guided tour of the Muyil ruins yesterday (with our kids, ages 6 and 11) and we absolutely loved the whole experience. It was fairly easy to get there by ADO bus from Tulum (around $112/4...More

As you peruse the comments here, be aware that there are several ways to experience Sian Ka'an. Some people drive through the limited part that is accessible by car. Some travel by boat from the ocean side and don't see much more than the beach...More

It's amazing, if you rented a car, drive here, enjoy the ruins, then cool off with the guided lake tour. The mangrove float was surreal. Super easy trip to plan on your own . The lake tour is $600 per person and $300 per kid,...More

Hi - We used Kan Tours which is a big tour company in Mexico. We were VERY pleased with them. This is a link to the tour we took! It was so fun - enjoy yourself! We took the Sian Ka'an Muyil tour.

Is anyone working in the office? I've tried numerous times to book a trip but doesn't seem responsive. Anyone else having trouble with communications with them? They are highly rated but their non responsiveness is very very frustrating.

Were you trying to contact Kan Tours? There are many tour companies that go there. We used Kan because it is a larger tour company. You might have called them during siesta too.
