Arco Maya (Mayan Arch).
When approaching the Mayan Arch (the entrance of the Biosphere Reserve) via hire car from the north (Playa del Carmen), we recommend taking Highway 307 southwards towards Tulum. When you reach Tulum itself, you get to the first big intersection with traffic lights, here you take a left turn towards the Tulum beach hotel zone (the street sign says Boca Paila).*
*On your right, you’ll see a parking lot which is also home to a Bancomer Bank, Hertz car rental and Super AKI superstore. It is advised to buy some supplies here if you intend to stay in the Reserve overnight as there is no store within the reserve other than in Punta Allen. If you only attend a tour with us, this is not necessary as we will provide you with bottled water, natural fresh juice drink, a Mayan lunch and fruit.*
Once you reach the end of the road that leads to the beach, you will find on your left a hotel called Kore Tulum, from there you follow the road to your right. This is the Tulum coastal road and you will pass lots of small hotels and cabañas until you reach the Mayan Arch – the entrance to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, where we will meet. Your guide will meet you there, please park your car as we will provide you with a brief explication of what to expect in the tour. If you have reserved a tour with us, you do not have to pay the entrance fee, this fee is included in your tour price. We will provide you with your brazelet once we get to embarcation area. At the Mayan Arch, you can park your car to meet our guide. Once you are greeted by our guide, we will go further into the reserve to our embarcation area.
