PUNTA ALLEN. A WILD ADVENTURE

ABOUT PROJECT

is the largest village in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve at the end of the Boca Paila Peninsula in Tulum Municipality in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. It is a small Mayan fishing village with a 2010 census population of 469 inhabitants,[1] and the only land access is by a rough 50 kilometre track.[2] The village has only about 4-5 blocks of sandy streets going inland from the sea and is only about 6-7 streets wide. Punta Allen has 1 generator that runs electricity to the village during two periods daily; 11am - 2pm and from 7pm - midnight. It is wise to bring a flashlight along so you can find your way to the bathroom at night, without stepping on a scorpion, crab or any other creature of the night. The beach is not groomed, and is littered with garbage brought in by the waves. Most of this garbage is said to come from cruise ships and other Caribbean countries with open land fills. Every time a hurricane passes it picks up the garbage and deposits it in the sea, to be left till it makes its way to one of the beaches.
