World Day for the Protection of Nature
1. Happy World Nature Protection Day
Every year, on July 18th we celebrate World Nature Protection Day, a date that invites us to reflect on the importance of conserving biodiversity, ecosystems and to promote sustainability in our daily lives.
But it also reminds us that in an ever-changing world, it is essential to protect and preserve natural spaces such as the Mayan jungle, a place of unparalleled beauty and ecological wealth!
2. The beauty of the Mayan jungle in Cobá
The Mayan jungle is a paradise that extends throughout the Yucatán Peninsula; however, Coba is one of the places where you can enjoy it in all its splendor.
Thanks to the deep respect the Mayas had for nature, they were able to build their cities in harmony with the environment, leaving a cultural legacy that we can still appreciate.
What’s more, here you can join the celebration of Nature Protection Day by participating in eco-friendly activities that will connect you with the environment and at the same time contribute to its protection. Here are 4 of the best ones.
From spending a quiet afternoon camping on the lagoon’s dock, to diving into its refreshing waters or exploring them during a canoe ride, Punta Laguna is a true natural paradise that allows you to experience the wonders of the Mayan jungle in a variety of ways.
On the other hand, if extreme adventure is your thing, you can also have fun sliding down a 30-meter-high zip line, exploring a mystical cenote and crossing the jungle with an expert guide.
Tour the spider monkey reserve
To learn about the important species of the area, we recommend that you continue your adventure in Punta Laguna by visiting the Spider Monkey Reserve, one of the natural centers with one of the largest populations in the world.
Here you can learn from a Mayan guide about this and other species, such as the howler monkey, observe their behaviors in their natural habitat and if you are lucky, you can even interact with them.
In addition, you can also find information about all the animals in the area and the history of this reserve in the small museum located right at the entrance.
Bird watching in the Mayan jungle is one of the best ways to enjoy nature, as it is home to a great variety of exotic birds that you can only see in this region.
Here you can enjoy tours with specialized guides who will take you to the best places to observe birds of all colors and sizes in their natural environment. For example, in Aldea Cobá you will be able to join tours through the best areas of the town for Birdwatching.
If you are still not convinced that this is the activity for you, here are 5 fascinating reasons to start this adventure.
These are authentic natural wonders that will transport you to a magical and mysterious world. Believe us, these freshwater sinkholes, surrounded by lush jungle vegetation, are a living testimony to the natural beauty of the peninsula.
Swim, relax, dive, or simply admire the majestic scenery!
