Muyil Ruins

Muyil (also known as Chunyaxché), is one of the earliest and most enduring ancient Maya sites along the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Located just 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) to the south of the coastal Tulum, artifacts dating from 350 BC to as late as 1200-1500 AD have been discovered at Muyil. 

Marvel at the ruins of Muyil, showcasing impressive Peten architecture reminiscent of southern Mayan sites like Tikal in Guatemala, featuring steep-walled pyramids. 


Muyil thrived as a vital trade hub on the Caribbean. Its network of ancient canals once provided access for trade, with goods like jade, obsidian, chocolate, honey, feathers, chewing gum, and salt in high demand.

Your Adventure

Sian Ka'an Biosphere

Once you’ve finished exploring the Muyil ruins, we head over to the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve which is a protected nature reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site accessible only by boat. On this tour, be sure to have your camera ready as the Sian Ka’an reserve is home to a large variety of birds and wildlife and unique and beautiful landscape. Your private guide will help you discover this amazing place. You’ll be taken through a series of boardwalks in the flourishing jungle to a wooden tower that you will climb where you will be able to see over the tops of the trees onto the lagoon and the immensely beautiful landscape.

When you are close to the end of the boat tour, we encourage you to jump into one of the ancient Mayan canals and enjoy a slow float to the end where the boat will be waiting for you. Waiting for you at the end of these activities is a delicious lunch.
