  • a boat trip in the lagoon of Ria Lagartos is highly recommended, 2 hours for approximately 800 pesos. In addition to flamingos, you can see many pelicans, Komorane and other birds and crocodiles. Very much recommended for nature fans!

  • Breaking the wonder of the Caribbean you can visit the Lagoon (natural biosphere) of Rio largatos. fascinating! Pink flamingos are the first thing you will see and will be more than wonderful! You will see various birds and crocodiles. It will come the MUDs then ... to do it! I recommend lots of sunscreen and mosquito repellent. is full of them.

  • Even if you find something away from Playa del Carmen or Cancun it is worth approaching the nature reserve. Great to be able to see its flora and fauna is impressive! Essential bathing in the part of the salinas and contemplate the SEA PINK!
