SUP Tour in a Mexican Lagoon
Have you ever thought about an empty lagoon surrounded by the most amazing vegetation?
Have you ever thought about a complete flat water space where the sky is reflected as in a mirror?
Have you ever thought about a lagoon which water color changes from green to turquoise?
This place actually exists, here in Tulum. It’s called Kaan Luum Lagoon and is located just 15 minutes south of town.
You can visit the lagoon on your own every day from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. You can have a swim and enjoy this wild place by sitting on its wooden deck. However, we offer you a better way to discover it. Would you like to hear about it?
We normally visit the lagoon first thing in the morning at 9:00 am, when is completely empty, when the sun has just risen and the reflection of the clouds in the water is incredibly clear.
The activity consists in paddling the whole diameter of the lagoon with a stand up paddle board (SUP). We do it close to the shore where the mangroves, palms and other plants can be watched and where the animals have a place to rest and hide from us. We have seen turtles, fishes, multiple birds and little crocodiles in this beautiful place. We remember a day when a 1.5 meter crocodile swam under one of the paddle boards. It was the most exciting experience for us and for the clients who were thrilled and impressed.
In the middle of the journey we stop in a wooden pier, half destroyed, to walk a little in the jungle and to hear the birds.
The paddling all around the lagoon takes about 2 hours. After the challenge, our clients can chill on the boards, continue the paddling, do some SUP yoga or just have an amazing and relaxing swim.
In the lagoon there is a cenote, a big hole of 80 meters deep. During our free days, we are learning and practicing free diving with an experienced and professional apnea instructor (Julien Borde of Pranamaya Freedive & Yoga). You need to go deep into the hole, around 10 meters to see some light from above, otherwise is just darkness. Apnea is one of the best sports we have ever tried together with kitesurfing, paddleboarding and surfing. We are thrilled about learning it and excited to share future experiences with all of you.
This particular experience is for everyone, beginners and advanced, no matter age because the water is completely flat.
Once the tour is finished, we have the best local and delicious Mexican food: tacos, pozole, quesadillas or guisados. Yummy!!
