Travel to the Ría Celestún Biosphere Reserve and discover one of the most biodiverse regions of the Yucatán. You'll enjoy a boat ride alongside flamingos and herons!
At 9 am, we'll pick you up at your hotel in Mérida and set off for the Ría Celestún Biosphere Reserve, a unique natural enclave of the Yucatán Peninsula.
Upon arrival, you'll go on a one-hour boat tour through the mangroves of this protected area. As we pass by Isla Pájaros (Bird Island), you'll be able to admire the pink flamingos, herons, hawks and pelicans. We'll also cruise through the lagoons of Valeosera and Quinitun. Be sure to keep your camera handy! We may even come across a crocodile on the shore.
Next, we'll walk through the dense forest in search of ducks, armadillos, ocelots, wild turkeys and even white-tailed deer. Then, we'll check out the famous "Ojo de Agua Dulce," a small crystalline cenote surrounded by mangroves - a place right out of a fairytale!
Afterward, we'll make our way back to Mérida, arriving at your hotel at 5:30 pm.
