Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve
Heading south of Playa del Carmen, travelers reach the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Natural Reserve, also known as "the place where the sky begins". It is an area of rain forest, lakes, swamps, coastal ponds, bays and reefs,  all of which are the natural habitat of thousands of species, such as jaguars and pumas, white-tail deer, crocodiles, howler and spider monkeys and 345 species of birds. All day expeditions from Monday to Saturday are available, which include a three hour boat trip. Requires reservations in advance.


This  is considered to be the largest natural aquarium in the world. Formed by a huge inlet, it is a  setting for hundreds of tropical fish; and is also known also for its ruins, cenotes,  and caves. Restaurants,, showers, and lockers are available.


Swimming With Dolphins

In the two nature parks south of Playa, Xcaret and Xel-Ha, you can have the opportunity of interacting with dolphins.
