Description

Venture to Celestun – 1 of the Yucatan coast's most picturesque ecological reserves – for an up-close look at vibrant pink Caribbean flamingos. Go for a refreshing dip and enjoy lunch at a local beachfront restaurant.

After being picked up from your hotel, ride to the coastal town of Celestun, home to the Parque Natural del Flamenco Mexicano. This 147,500-acre (59,691 ha) biosphere reserve is home to sea turtles, pelicans and crocodiles, as well as huge flocks of pink flamingos in the winter.

Hop on a boat for a tranquil cruise through the mangroves and admire these colourful birds, then take a dip in the cool waters – Celestun has a mix of freshwater from the estuary and saltwater from the Gulf of Mexico. As you take in the beaches and scenery, your knowledgeable guide shares facts and information about this pristine ecosystem and the creatures that inhabit it.

Dry off and take a seat in a local beachfront restaurant for a savoury lunch of regional specialities before your return trip to Merida.
