1. Where is Selvatica (and how do I get there)?

When booking or considering a tour on your next vacation, the first question that pops into anyone's head is, 'how do I get there?'.




It's natural, especially when you are in a new and unfamiliar place. No one likes to waste time on vacation getting lost. Fear not! Every tour and program that Selvatica offers provides you with the option to pay for roundtrip transportation. This means that no matter where you're staying Selvatica will come and get you and drop you off again at your desired location. Winner! However, if you are somewhat of an adventurist and you prefer arriving on your own, here's how to do it. Try  Google Map Directions to Selvatica. Mexico, and this region of the Yucatan, in general, is fairly easy to navigate. The highways are straight and as long as you know where to get off you it's a piece of cake.

TIP: If you’re traveling here from another country, your mobile data coverage may not be reliable here. What to do in this case? Don’t worry. Download these Google Maps into your phone from a Wi-Fi connection and you will be able to access them at all times.

Here are the official instructions on how to do that. For Android click here. For iOS click here. Selvatica can be found in the heart of the jungle half way between Playa del Carmen and Cancun, close to Puerto Morelos. When coming to the Caribbean it's easy to become mesmerized by the pristine powdery white sands, and impressive hotels that dominate the coastlines but there's an understated side of paradise that often goes unnoticed. We believe the jungle deserves your attention! Its lush setting provides the perfect backdrop for the ultimate outdoor adventure. You won't find anything like this anywhere else.
