The ancient Maya called it ‘Where the Sky Begins' – and there's definitely a touch of heaven to Sian Ka'an. Its mangroves, coral reefs, wildlife and archaeological sites mean that it's both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve, a rare double that places it in the champions' league of natural parks. Manon, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘I first came to Sian Ka'an as a visitor on holidays from Normandy and totally fell in love with it – now I work in this paradise. I come here every day and have never lived the same experience twice.'

You'll kick off with a speedboat jaunt along the coast as you wind your way through mangroves towards the Maya fishing village of Punta Allen. Among the wildlife you might spot are sea turtles, dolphins and an array of birds. Manon adds, ‘You'll have the chance to approach the animals respectfully in their natural habitat.' At sandy Punta Allen, which by today's standards is remarkably remote, there's a pit stop for a snack and refreshment.

It's then time to zip out into the open sea with some local fishermen. You'll be able to relax on board in the clearest of Caribbean waters – utter bliss. With coral reef snorkel stops throughout the boat trip, you'll feel like you've had a real taste of forbidden fruit. There's one last stop for a buffet lunch made from locally sourced ingredients before hopping on a boat and heading back to Tulum pier.
