From El Castillo, one may choose to walk through the jungle along sacbé 1 in order to reach the lagoon. An alternative is to return to the site entrance, drive south along the highway for 275 metres, then head inland for 800 metres along a single-lane road bordered with jungle foliage and carved from the limestone - slowly. At the shoreline there is a pier with a number of boats tied up and waiting to be hired.
Muyil Lagoon is the smaller of two lagoons, approximately circular, and 1.7 kilometres in diameter. Toward its southeast side, there is a canal carved out of the vegetation with a length of 330 metres that enters into a second lagoon - Chunyaxche Lagoon. A few small Maya structures may be seen here. I did not take the boat trip as I felt the asking price was too high and the boatman was not prepared to compromise.
