1 TOUR, 2 MAGICAL PLACES

Las Coloradas

Near the village of Rio Lagartos, in the Yucatan State, is settled one of the largest salt factory of Mexico. The factory extracts the salt from the lakes of the surrondings. The place was called Las Coloradas due to the pink colors of these lakes. Depending on the weather, lighting and time of the day, the lakes have different shades of pink and orange. The landscape there appears surreal. This phenomenon of pink lakes can be observed only in few places in the world.

With the social media, especially Instagram, Las Coloradas became famous as this is a unique place to take amazing shots. Tourists from all around the world now come to visit this special place. If you plan holidays in the Riviera Maya, this is the perfect occasion to organize a one day trip to pink lakes.

Rio Lagartos

Rio Lagartos is a natural reserve on UNESCO’s Biosphere Reserve list, with almost 3,000 different animal and plant species!

In 1979, this region was declared a Wildlife Refuge Area, which means that species living here are protected. This allowed conservation and repopulation in the area. In 1999, UNESCO declared Rio Lagartos Lagoon a Biosphere Reserve. The goal was to improve the ecosystem and help protect and preserve endangered species, such as flamingos.

The Reserve of Rio Lagartos is a lagoon composed of a stretch of saltwater separated from the sea by a sandbank and mangrove trees. Rio Lagartos means “Crocodiles River” in Spanish. In fact, some crocodiles are present in the lagoon, and you might be able to see some of them while on the boat. They live in this beautiful ecosystem, along with fish, horseshoe crabs, and all sorts of birds. Thanks to conservation programs, you can see a great diversity of fauna: 559 species of the five groups of vertebrates: 58 species of mammals, 355 of birds (179 are residents, 142 are migratory, and 14 are resident/migratory), 95 of amphibians and reptiles, and 71 of fish.

Birdwatching at Rio Lagartos and Las Coloradas

Rio Lagartos is a great place for birdwatching. Cormorants, pelicans, seagulls, flamingos, pink spatulas, frigates, fishing eagles, and many more live in the lagoon. Some birds live there all year long, while others are just migrating for a few months each year.
Each bird has its own diet and fishing technique. You will observe eagles, pelicans, and cormorants fishing, while flamingos prefer shrimp and seaweed. Our boat tour will enable you to observe fauna in their natural habitat and take great pictures.
