Tulum ruins are an interesting sample of the Mayan diversity. They were polytheist, and their building reflect their beliefs. I like their ample settings and how their main buildings face the sea.. They used colors to decorate their buildings, Red was predominant. The colonization brought...More
Love this place! The guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable about all of the animals. From there we rode ATVs to an amazing cenote where we had a refreshing swim. Best excursion by far....just wear lots of bug spray, mosquitoes were crazy!!!!
They rehabilitate exotic pets and injured wildlife. They habitats were clean and large. The animals were well cared for and the guides explained how they arrived. Some monkeys had their tails removed by pet owners who wanted them to be less mobile. Some monkeys hands...More
The whole sanctuary was great. The little squirrel monkeys captured our hearts. They sat on us, looked us in the eye and were so gentle. Great experience. The birds are beautiful and tame. Fed the little goats - so cute. Wonderful experience.
I appreciate the effort and passion that the rangers put into this project. I can't remember if it's maintained already by two or three generations but you can see that these people live for this reserve. It was a nice surprise when our ranger started...More
Loved our experience there, very cozy and intimate, small group for the tour allowed us plenty of time to ask questions and get a good look around. Bring a bathing suit to take a swim in the cenote before leaving.

The Akumal Sanctuary is $65/person. Tour lasted about 2 1/2 hours. I was just there today. It is a monkey sanctuary but they dont turn away other animals needing rescue, ie Mccaws, zebras, lemurs, etc. They are doing a great thing and are obviously in their first development phase. I thought the experience was wonderful and would recommend it.
You may have it confused with Jungle Place. It has a minimum donation of $80 and it requires reservations. We looked into it but their first opening wasn't for 2 more weeks. The Akumal Sanctuary is so new (opened this summer) it isnt even advertised yet in Playa del Carmen.
Also Tulum Sactuary is permanently closed.
Hope this clears things up.
