The community of Punta Laguna, conscious of rapid tourism development, has wisely decided to participate in eco-tourism by promoting activities which are aimed towards the preservation of their culture and the land. The marvelous natural environment of this area is characterized by impressive lagoons, a cenote with crystal-clear water and a semi-decidous jungle with trees of up to 100ft and an extraordinary bio-diversity of flora (over 300 species) and fauna (potential habitat for over 300 species of birds and many other species with a special protection status such as the jaguar, puma, ocelot, collared peccary, white-tailed deer, red-brocket deer, agouti and many more).
After our visit to the reserve, we will visit Cobá, where the early settlers took advantage of a series of small lagoons to find their city; which was possible with the largest pre-Hispanic settlement of the Classic period in northern Yucatán. The temple known as Nohoch Mul is about 42m tall (138 ft) and from the top you can see the jungle like a green carpet covering an ancient city of 72km2 (45 square miles).
