Lace up your hiking boots! Several regional eco-parks, such as Xcaret, Xel-Há, and Kantun Chi, beckon with fascinating endemic wildlife and opportunities to interact with the animals. One of the can’t-miss Riviera Maya experiences is trekking through Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site covering 1.6 million acres. Observant visitors might spot manatees or dolphins, jaguars or tapirs, or a few of the more than 300 bird species that live here.
