Interested in learning even more about the Maya civilization? Hop on our Muyil Tour located just south of Tulum! This is another one of our private ruins tours that will knock your socks off with mystery.

 

Muyil, which is also known as Chunyaxché, is one of the most historic Maya sites in the area, and contains uncovered artifacts that date as far back as the 4th century BC. Located away from the coast, the Maya built an impressive series of canals to connect it to an important Caribbean trade route that was once used to trade everything from chocolate to feathers in order to survive. The Maya depended on the sea to thrive, so they needed another connection to it.

When you book the Muyil Tour with us, you’ll be able to engage in activities to which no one else would have the chance. For starters, you’ll get to explore El Castillo, a restored temple that is the most spectacular architectural ruin in the area. Archaeologists have gone on record to say that the Maya used it as an observation tower for the purpose of guiding vessels by way of signal fires.

 

After viewing El Castillo, you’ll be also be able to see dozens of other structures constructed by the Maya as we stroll through the boardwalk among the trees and wildflowers that line the way to Sian Ka’an lagoon. If you gain a sense of courage, we can take you to the observation tower. Remember, going up is the easy part, but you will have to come down. It is recommended that you skip this part if you have a fear of heights or have knee issues as the ascension requires climbing a lot of stairs.

No matter which route you choose to take, we’ll cap off the tour with a relaxing boat ride around the beautiful sights of Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve. This reserve is home to wild animals such as crocodiles, monkeys, and illusive jaguars. Feel free to send us a message if you have any questions about the tour.
