Due to a variety of ecosystems, seasons, and weather patterns, the activities in Sisal change throughout the year. Based on these elements, we plan an experience for you that follows nature's rhythms.
Sisal is located inside the El Palmer Biosphere “Los Petenes” Reserve. Petén is the Maya word for a forest ecosystem that consists of circular plant formations and complex habitats perfect for endangered or vulnerable fauna species such as the jaguar. Resident and migratory birds use the forest for nesting, resting and feeding before their long journeys home. The forest includes four species of mangrove trees, which function as the lungs of the planet, cleaning more air per area than a rain forest.
The area is unique with seven different ecosystems: wetlands, savanna grasslands, coastal dunes, mangroves, jungles, underground rivers, and coral reef. The diversity of flora and fauna is vast.
Possible activities: • bird watching • wildlife photography • flora and fauna interpretation • forest trekking • night tours • canoeing • SUP • kayaking • off-road cycling • snorkeling a shipwreck • swimming in freshwater springs • local style fishing • virgin beaches • add on overnight camping kit for the ultimate immersive experience with nature
