Sian Ka’an Punta Allen
Punta Allen is a small community of fishermen who live in a privileged corner in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. As this is a federal reserve, everything is kept as natural as possible, without affecting the flora and fauna of the Biosphere itself.
This small ecotourism paradise has a low profile among tourists for its location and access, few want to venture into the reserve for two hours to reach a fishing village, not knowing that Punta Allen is a paradise for those who know how to value a natural destination
In the language of the Mayan peoples who once inhabited this region, Sian Ka’an means ‘Where the Sky is born’. Located on the east coast of the Yucatán peninsula, this biosphere reserve contains tropical forests, mangroves and marshes, as well as a large marine section intersected by a barrier reef. It provides a habitat for a remarkably rich flora and a fauna comprising more than 385 species of birds, as well as a large number of the region’s characteristic terrestrial vertebrates, which cohabit in the diverse environment formed by its complex hydrological system.
