Tour Details

Las Coloradas tour starts by picking up travellers at the hotel in Playa del Carmen. We will drive 3 hours to reach the village of Rio Lagartos in Yucatan. Shortly before we arrive, we will stop at a mini market, where you can buy a coffee/breakfast and use the bathroom if needed. Then we will reach the harbor and get on board for our boat tour. Our guide and the boat captain are friendly and knowledgeable and will help you learn more about the lagoon.

Enjoy the beauty of Rio Lagartos National Park

We will spend a couple of hours on the lagoon, looking for birds, crocodiles, and other creatures. You will be able to take pictures, we’ll stop by the Las Coloradas salt factory to see the pink lagoons. You’ll also enjoy the Mayan spa, with its natural skin care product.

Returning to the village, we will have lunch at a local restaurant.

Get the most incredible pictures at Las Coloradas

We will then travel to Las Colaradas, where you can take pictures in front of the pink lakes. Colors change according to the weather and lighting. You will be able to enjoy the beauty of Las Coloradas by seeing various shades of pink and orange during the day.
Your guide will help you get the best pictures possible by taking you to the best spots. Be sure to bring your camera to get the most from this magical place! Dressing up could also be a good idea to get great pictures, as bright colors contrast with the water. Finally, the guide will explain the salt fabrication process.

Then it will be time to drive back Playa del Carmen and drop you at your hotel. After your Las Coloradas tour, don’t forget to share your pictures with us or on our social media!


  • The pink lake is pink all year long, however we never know how “pink” it will look like in advance, it depends on a combination of salt production and weather conditions.
  • Las Coloradas is a private property owned by the salt factory. It is not allowed to have a walk within the property. We will bring you to the authorized area where tourists are allowed to access with a guide and take pictures.
  • The tour is taking place in the wild, we can not guarantee if you will see all birds and animals, neither how many or from a close distance or not.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    We were lucky to be a very small group of 4 people. The van was clean and very confortable. We talked a lot with our guide during the drive. Very knowledgable and patient to answer all our questions! Rio Lagartos is a very authentic place and the boat tour was so peaceful. We saw flamingos, pelicanos and many other birds, and a small crocodile. Very fun episode at the mayan spa! Excellent lunch. Las Coloradas are pink for real, great spot for pictures! Thanks for a very good day

    Merci beaucoup pour cette excursion. C’ètait une très belle journée. Nous étions 2 avec un autre petit groupe de 3 americains. Le guide parlait très bien dans toutes les langues! la sortie en bateau était chouette et on a vu plein d’oiseaux et un crocodile. On a eu le temps qu’on voulait à las coloradas pour prendre plein de photos. Repas mexicain était sympa au bord du lagon.

    We started our tour after a pick up from our hotel in Playa del Carmen, straight to Rio Lagartos, our guide was knowledgeable. We then went to Las Coloradas. We took a lot of picture and went back home after a really good day visiting the Yucatan!
