Let's explore the ruins of America's first church.

Join us on this new expedition from Cancun to Cabo Catoche, where we will sail through this maze of mangrove channels in the footsteps of Conquistadors and Pirates.

Our first stop will be the Boca Iglesia, located in the middle of the Yucatan jungle, and on the way back we will stop at two snorkeling spots with lots of colorful fish, a shipwreck and coral formations.

  • This off-the-beaten-track venture starts with small speed boats which will bring you very close to Cabo Catoche, at the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, where the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico come together. The boat ride is around 40 minutes long.

  • Our guides will highlight unique plant and animal life found here and outline the rich history of the region as we look back to the times when Conauistadors and Pirates roamed these waters and land. We can observe vast flocks of beautiful pink flamingos and many other bird species, and perhaps some of the other endemic wildlife here as well.

  • We will explore a labyrinth of mangrove channels and low flood areas and bays, all with abundant flora and fauna. We will walk 5 minutes through the jungle when we reach the very first Church in all of Latin America. The buildings are covered with trees and a hill of rocks is holding the Church - making it seem like it's watching over the area from its highest point. The church also has a small cemetery, hidden by vegetation.

  • On our way back we will stop at two very-fun snorkeling spots where enchantingly colorful fish mingle with an old shipwreck and coral formations. We continue to a sand bank with endless shallow water and stop to enjoy this admirable spot and take our best vacation pictures.

  • The P.P. Dock fee of 13 USD per person is not included in the price.

  • Pick ups available ONLY from Cancun.
