One of the most amazing things that Riviera Maya can offer is its natural beauty. Its surroundings keeps ecological treasures adventure, culture and nature and at Jungla Maya Native Park I found the same combination. I marveled at the dense greenery of the rainforest so close to the beaches of the mexican caribbean and I’ll always look for maximum fun in everything I do. That’s why I present to you the 9 reasons why you should not miss the opportunity to visit Jungle Maya Native Park:
- Easy access: Jungla Maya Native Park is located on the highway Chetumal-Puerto Juarez, which begins at Cancun, goes all the way through the Riviera Maya, pass by Playa del Carmen, Tulum until reaching Chetumal. The entrance to Jungla Maya Native Park is just 6.2 miles before Tulum so you can find it next to the road.
