These four hours of walking are like water, because you see flamingos, crocodiles, eagles, pelicans and a variety of birds and the best is the MAYA SPA. This ride is more time and more flamingos than in celestún. Crocodiles that do not exist in CELESTÚN. of ria lagartos to celestún I prefer thousand times with ria lagartos.

See an adult crocodile and a really magic juvenile in their natural environment.
