Idyllic Biospheres, Mayan Ruins, Amazing Beaches!
For round 4 of our Mexico adventure tours we’ve gone back to the drawing board to create a brandnew, unique experience! This trip is filled with off the path excursions (our specialty), amazing beaches, and a less traveled biosphere rich with diverse wildlife, tropical lagoons, & incredible snorkeling! Most people go to Mexico and just lay on a beach the whole time. Our travel club goes to Mexico to experience the people, culture, and beautiful land this country has to offer (and we enjoy the beaches too of course!). So many wonderful pictures to be taken on this trip. Email us to see daily itinerary at email@example.com

Sian Ka-an Biosphere Reserve
“In the language of the Mayan peoples who once inhabited this region, Sian Ka’an means ‘Origin of the Sky’. Located on the east coast of the Yucatán peninsula, this biosphere reserve contains tropical forests, mangroves and marshes, as well as a large marine section intersected by a barrier reef. It provides a habitat for a remarkably rich flora and a fauna comprising more than 300 species of birds”, as well *as” creatures that are rarely found elsewhere, including manatees, four species of marine turtle, howler and spider monkeys, crocodiles, the rare Jabiru stork, jaguars, pumas, ocelots, pink flamingos, toucans and tapirs. It’s arguably the most breathtaking part of the Yucatan peninsula! – Unesco.org
