Explore Lagoon "Kaan Luum" On A Private Paddleboard Expedition
YOU PROBABLY THOUGHT THAT PLACES LIKE THESE ONLY EXIST IN MOVIES
Lagoon Kaan Luum is a truly unique place that is still relatively unknown to most visitors to the Riviera Maya. Let’s go there before the masses discover it!
Kaan Luum is a large, round lagoon with a deep crater in the center which leads to an under water cenote. This lagoon is ideal for standup paddle, even if it’s your first time.
The name Kaan Luum in Maya means ‘yellow earth’ and you wil understand why once you fall in the water and sink knee deep into this muddy substance. The soil is a big layer of limestone residu from centuries of erosion, which makes a great body scrub. There are also little fish that nibble on your toes. So welcome to our Aloha spa!
KAAN LUUM IS STILL RELATIVELY UNKNOWN TO THE CROWDS
Thanks to its location 15 minutes South of Tulum, the lagoon is still relatively undiscovered which means that normally it won’t be too busy there. The good thing about going with Aloha is that we can take our paddleboards and have the rest of the lagoon to ourselves.
You will get an introduction to standup paddleboarding on the dock by one of our instructors. After that we will start our standup paddleboard dream on the beautiful yellow and jade colored waters of the lagoon. The entrance is really shallow so it’s a great place to start. The further we go on the lagoon, the deeper it gets (unless we stay close to the sides).
DON’T WORRY, THERE ARE NO CROCODILES…
Many people are concerend about scary animals like crocodiles we noticed. As much as we love to see wildlife, the lagoon is fresh water, which means that crocodiles don’t like it. They prefer it salt or at least brackish.
We do get to see a variety of birds in the lagoon. And once we paddle away from the dock at the entrance, there is only silence, and the wind, and sound of birds. It’s not for nothing that we like to bring you here. You will truly feel like you’re away from the crowd. One of the things we like to do, is to paddle to the other side of the lagoon, anchor our boards there and relax, try some yoga poses or get a nice body scrub with the yellow mud.
