Our passionate local guide will teach you everything about these natural spaces that make up the bio-reserve of Celestún. He actively participates in the reforestation of mangroves that have disappeared as a result of drastic climate change, and fights to preserve the biodiversity in these ecosystems.
You will then takea lancha boat to go watching massive colonies of pink flamingos in the wild.

On board a Lancha, you will observe colonies of flamingos (available from September to March)*. * Being wild and in their natural habitats, seeing every animal is not guaranteed.

Included in the itinerary
An expert English-speaking guide will join you.
Important if you want to observe the animals more closely.
Eco-friendly bug spray
José will give you an eco-friendly bug spray.
José proposes excursions in Canoa. The fact of using a boat without engine allows us to limit our impact on the ecosystem of the reserves of Celestún. We only suggest to realise the tour when the pink flamingos are away from the bank. The second part of the tour will take place aboard a Lancha.

A bit of cash if you want to tip your guide
Jose will wait for you at the meet up point, which is just inside the Celestún reserve. There is a more detailed explanation on the main road of Celestún.
