Laguna de Manialtepec, Puerto Escondido

(4.6/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Explore Laguna de Manialtepec, a scenic coastal lagoon surrounded by lush mangrove trees. The name of the lagoon means "Lizard Place" in the indigenous Nahuatl language. Rent a sailboat, enjoy the picturesque landscape, or take a swim in the lake's mix of fresh and saltwater. Birders should keep their eyes out for numerous permanent and migratory avian species. If you visit at night, you might see the lagoon's famous phosphorescent lights, set aglow by movement.
