To the southeast of Quintana Roo is the most amazing hiding place for numerous archaeological remains and wildlife, found on little more than 650 hectares, it is Sian Ka'an, one of the most captivating natural reserves of Mexico that comprehends part of the municipality of Felipe Carrilo Puerto and of Tulum.
In its varied natural systems of red, black, white and gray mangroves we can find diverse species such as flamingos, crocodiles, sea turtles, manatees, spider monkeys and birds; in Sian Ka'an life seems to be magically generated in every corner: reefs, cays, beaches, marshes, lagoons and jungles, so it is not difficult to run into unusual creatures such as wild boar, deer tapirs, howler monkeys or big cats like pumas, ocelots and jaguars.
In the sea, there are hundreds of fish that give multicolored life to its warm waters; the existence of marine sponges, snails, starfish, sea urchins, natural lobster breeding sites and even dolphins, are a reflection of a healthy and abundant ecosystem that is part of the Great Mayan Reef.
