Locals call them “foxes” because that’s what they’ve been taught. But this beautiful animal has a charming face that seems to smile while turning its head to look at us. In addition, it’s the only marsupial in Latin America. In many parts of the city it’s regarded as a pest, but in the Mayan Riviera we take care of it and protect it.



Its beauty, coat, grace, ferocity. The ocelot is a majestic and charming feline that lives deep in the jungle. You’ll definitely hear its growl as you bask in the sun on a deserted beach, but don’t worry, there’s nothing to fear.


Sea turtle

A distinguished visitor to our shores, the sea turtle travels thousands of miles over its lifetime and comes to spawn to the shores of Quintana Roo. They are a protected species, and you can find different sanctuaries all along the Mayan Riviera.



The boa constrictor is a beautiful snake that is neither venomous nor aggressive. If you come across one, don’t be afraid, let it continue on its way.

These are just some of the species you can find here. Don’t forget they are wild animals, so you shouldn’t disturb them or alter their habitat. This way we can continue to enjoy the charm of the Mayan Riviera and unforgettable vacations for a long time.
