The Celestun Biosphere Reserve gives refuge and sustenance to the colorful colonies of flamingos that paint the sky pink at dusk and dawn.

NAVIGATE BETWEEN THE BIRDS
Lose yourself amongst the wildlife by climbing onboard a boat and enjoying the spectacular flight of thousands of birds that live in the calm waters of the mangrove and along the soft beaches.
Feel the contrasts caused by the estuary's fresh water mixing with the water flowing from underground rivers beneath the Yucatan peninsula and the salt water currents of the Gulf of México, and explore the habitat where elegant flamingos, eagles, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, frigate birds, herons, ducks, seagulls and pelicans live.

ENJOY FISHING AND THE LOCAL FLAVORS
In the afternoon, enjoy the quiet fishing village that stretches along the coast and isolated sections of gorgeous beaches where locals have built thatched-roof palapas. The best fresh fish and seafood in the region are served here.
