What Makes It Magical

On the northwestern coast of the Yucatan perches the town of Sisal. While its history is marked by its role as a commercial port in the colonial times, today it stands out for belonging to a zone of great biological influence for the Caribbean. Whoever walks its soft, white sand will be smitten, just like Empress Carlota years ago. Life here means many boat rides exploring the great natural bounty bestowed on Sisal.

Why You Should Go

Its beautiful beaches and mangrove forests with a historical legacy.

  • During the colonial era, Sisal was a very important port for commercial and political reasons.
  • It sits inside the Reserva Estatal El Palmar. The reserve is a Ramsar site and a zone of influence for the Corredor Biológico Mesoamericano (Mesoamerican Biological Corridor).
  • A substantial pink flamingo colony inhabits its wetlands.
