Marvel at the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Preserve
Nichupte is a system of lagoons spanning more than 7,000 acres in the heart of Cancun that reaches the Caribbean Sea through the Sigfrido and Nizuc channels. Enjoy beautiful landscapes with crystalline waters bordered by mangroves that form passages where birds find shelter, fish live, and mammals and reptiles coexist and flourish in nature.
TOUR THE LAGOON AT YOUR PACE
Whether it's in a speedboat, in an exclusive water limo for your group, or as part of a caravan of kayaks, Jet Skis or WaveRunners, you can navigate the winding mangrove canals and observe some curious iguanas, frogs, turtles, crocodiles, and even the tracks of a leopard.
SWIM IN THE LAGOON OF LOVE
Take a dip in this heart-shaped lagoon where legend says that whoever bathes in its waters becomes a mermaid during their dreams so as to summon the eternal love of the person they desire.
REFOREST THE MANGROVE
You can be part of the mangrove reforestation campaign and participate in the collection and planting of mangrove seeds. Learn more about the interesting plant and animal community where the world of coastal wetlands and freshwater rivers mix with the salt water from the sea.
ADMIRE THE SUNSET
Book a tour to admire the sunset in the lagoon and offer a toast under the stars that the Mayas have observed for hundreds of years and that brought magic into their lives.
