Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve

The empty jungle and vast wetlands of Sian Ka’an (Mayan for “where the sky is born”) contrast strikingly with the resorts of the Mayan Riviera. Extending south from Tulum around Ascensión Bay, the area encompasses lagoons, reefs, lakes, mangroves, and forests. It is virtually uninhabited and contains a dazzling variety of animal and plant life.
