Rio Lagartos and Las Coloradas Private Tour
If you love nature and are interested in viewing unique Mexican wildlife, then your group won’t want to miss the chance to go on our all-inclusive Las Coloradas – Rio Lagartos Tour. This small fishing village’s name is translated as “Alligator River”, although its famous lagoon is actually home to a lot of diverse wild life.
Our private guided tour, which is ideal for families, will take you to the northern shores of the Yucatán Peninsula to explore the area’s most popular attraction, the Rio Lagartos Nature Reserve. This area is full of diverse wildlife. Once we reach the beautiful lagoon, your professional guide will take you out for a private boat tour of the area. While you boat around the lagoon, you’ll be able to go birdwatching and see beautiful birds like pink flamingos, herons, pelicans, eagles, frigate birds, and geese. You may even see as few crocodiles if you are lucky!
We’ll also stop by Las Coloradas, an area of the lagoon where salt has been extracted from the seawater for decades. This area is home to the second largest salt factory in the country. You’ll definitely want to have your camera ready since this area is known for its breathtakingly beautiful pink lagoon water. You have to see it to believe it!
Coming back from the boat, we will again go to Las Coloradas. This time will take place by car so you can experience an extended view of Las Coloradas .
The lagoon is not always pink as its color depends on the sun light and the salt production process from the factory. None of which is predictable. Swimming at Las Coloradas is strictly forbidden and can actually hurt your skin.
After exploring the Rio Lagartos, you’ll probably be hungry, so your guide will take you to a local restaurant where you can enjoy some fresh fish for lunch. This restaurant is in the small, natural town of Rio Lagartos. We’ll either eat there or at another small village with delicious traditional meat / smoked meat meals, you decide!
