If you enjoy being out with nature, a trip to Celestun is a must. The estuary is famous for its large flocks of flamingos that come there to feed. If you are lucky, one of the several crocodiles that call the estuary home will be out of the water enjoying the sun. The mangroves are home to many birds unique to the Yucatan peninsula. The boat excursion on the estuary and mangrove will also take visitors to a fresh water spring suitable for swimming. A great way to cool-off after a day in the sun.
A trip to the Yucatan would not be complete with out a visit to one of the numerous cenotes or sinkholes that dot the peninsula. The cenotes are the only source of fresh water in the jungle. The Mayans considered them the doorways to the spiritual underworld. Today they provide a place to play and adventure.
