Both include the boat ride thru ancient Mayan canals and mangroves and the lovely float. This is the end of the half day tour and we will return to the boat and motor back to the docks of Muyil, where we will have lunch.
The full day tour continues by boat to the coastline of Boca Paila. We will pass mangroves, lagoons, a heavily flowing freshwater cenote, stop where the manatees munch down seagrass, search for crocodiles in the mangroves, and swim on a secluded beach, for a wonderful day of boating, sunshine, and fun.
