Boca Paila

Quintana Roo

Boca Paila is one of the secrets best kept by the Biosphere de Sian Ka’an in the Querétaro State. Between the Muyil lagoon and the Caribbean Sea this nature’s miracle occurs.

The magic consists in being in the middle of the freshwater and saltwater. This detail gives the chance to the visitors of enjoying between two worlds.

Even getting here is another experience. The easiest way is coming from Tulum to the south, without going out of the Reserva, but into the narrow, green and beautiful highway. The journey is about 45 minutes (23km).

Once there, you will see fishermen that will offer you food and accommodation —simple, but nice—to boat tours if you want to explore the zone and enjoy the bewitching hues of the sunset.

Some vessels come here only to practice sport fishing or to enjoy the vegetation on a kayak. This medium is the best to explore the place once there since this way it will be possible to enjoy its mangrove in a respectful way. Ideally, you should travel with an expert guide to avoid any accident or setback.

If you like bird watching, the place is the best one for catching exotic and other beautiful species.

Camping is safe, but if you want to do it you must have in mind that it is necessary to bring your own tent since there’s no possibility of renting one at Boca Paila. This is also true for food and water.

Even if most of the year this spot remains in silence, any time of the year is ideal for visiting Boca Paila. It's seaside weather and its relaxed atmosphere will refresh not only your body and your mind, but your soul. This little known paradise has international renown for the lovers of sport fishing.
