Celestún is a fishing village located west to Mérida, approximately one hour away. It is located within the natural reserve classified as Ría Celestún Biosphere Reserve, a feeding place of the pink flamingo who for several months a year stays within the estuary, which runs parallel to the Gulf of Mexico Sea. The richness of the recovered mangroves make of this reserve an unparalleled and special place. You can also delight your palate with its delicious local cuisine.

The tour in canoe consists in going through a series of natural channels of salted water, interconnected with cenotes and fresh water ponds. Each canoe has capacity for up to 3 people, and is propelled manually with a wood. During the tour, you can observe and learn about different kinds of mangrove, see and listen to birds, fish and all the fauna living in the channels while you relax in this natural paradise. This activity is a great experience that brings the opportunity of taking pictures of birds like the Tiger-Heron and the Boat Hilled Heron. With the most stealth during the tour, you may have the opportunity of getting close to small groups of pink flamingoes, as well as to refresh on the crystal-clear waters.

Interpretation of nature, as well as taking care of it will come hand in hand of an expert certified guide that will accompany you along the tour.

It is recommended to make a reservation by phone call or e-mail.
