Regional Information - The Reserve
Sian Kaan is translated from Mayan as where the sky is born.
The Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve was established in 1986 by presidential decree, and in 1987 the reserve was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sian Kaan faces the greatest challenge of conservation: to find a way to integrate human activities without compromising other forms of life contained within its boundaries.
Sian Kaan is approximately 1.3 million acres in size and spans 120 kilometres from north to south (comprising almost one third of the Caribbean coast of Mexico). In 1994, an area of over 200,000 acres to the south of the Reserve was named a Protected Area of Flora and Fauna of Uaymil, increasing the continuous area of protected land.
The reserve contains three large core zones where human activity is limited by permission to scientific research. Low-impact human activities and sustainable development occur in the area of the reserve known as the buffer zone. The human population is estimated at 2,000 inhabitants, the majority of which are located in the coastal regions, especially in the fishing villages of Punta Allen and Punta Herrero. Approximately one percent of the land within the reserve is privately owned.
The northernmost section of Sian Kaan (where Casa Nalum is) contains what is thought to be an ancient trade route through lagoons with ruins and mangrove channels between the cities of Tulum and Muyil.
Please note that staff at Casa Nalum will attentively clean 100 yards directly in front of the villa. Also the team cleans a further 300 yards in each direction from plastic bottles or any other inorganic material - not from organic material such as sea grass or drift wood that are part of nature.
Payment is usually accepted in the quoted currency ($) unless the currency and the amount is specifically agreed in advance with the manager / advertiser.
