The closest shoreline to Izamal is directly north at this quaint little fishing village. Reputed to be the burial site of the notorious pirate Jean Lafite, this quiet little town is now becoming known as the access to the Parque San Felipe. Next to the office of the Port Captain you'll find the local coop called Sayachuleb which offers many different boat trips into the reserve. They offer three different tours and camping. For more information visit the Sayachuleb website.
