This tour is a must! Regarded by ornithologists as a true treasure trove, the “Ria de Celestun” is home to over 300 species of birds, 7 of which are found nowhere else in the world. Our tour guide, indigenous of Celestun, will take you to the world’s largest colony of pink flamingos. Up to 30’000 of these elegant birds live here. You will be surprised at the brightness of their color! But bird watching is not all you will do on this tour. We will also show you the untouched natural beauties of the Petrified Forest, where you will consider yourself in another world, the dense mangrove channels and the sweet water spring of Baldiosera.
The 3-hour boat ride gives you an overall view of the many ecosystems which have existed before mankind. In the estuary, the ecological balance of microorganisms, crustaceans, birds and vegetation, of sky, waters, sun and winds is perfectly intact. Come with us and discover this world, accompanied by pelicans, ospreys, cormorants and the singing of thousands of other birds. If you're lucky you might even see the eyes of a crocodile or the elegant movements of an ocelot.
Day 1: We take a boat at Celestun's harbor and make a roundtrip of the estuary that is home to more than 300 species of birds and the magnificent pink flamingo colony. Explore the mangrove swamps and plunge in one of the beautiful sweet water springs.
