 Flamingos trips

Rio Lagartos has the

world's largest pink flamingo nesting ground.

The intense colors of the birds create a striking visual effect against the brilliant blues and greens of the estuary waters.

Our Classic Flamingo Boat-tour consists of taking a boat like the one below (usually with a canopy but these folks wanted to sun-bathe) into the mangrove swamp to where the flamingos are flocked.
 
We also ride up the estuary several kilometers seeing many kinds of wading and water birds and, usually, crocodiles sunbathing along shore. We end up where you can float in water five times saltier than the ocean, and take a "Maya bath," like the folks have at the right.
The classic tour takes about two hours and costs from 900 to 1200 pesos, depending on how far we have to go to see the flamingos. Sometimes they are right across the estuary but other times we have to travel a good distance.

 
Flamingo trips are important for the town of Río Lagartos because of the money they bring in. When people see how important the flamingos are to the town's economy, they want to take better care of the area's ecology, and know more about it. At the left a friend and I are rescuing a flamingo entangled in fishing line. I'm biting through the line.

Welcome to Rio Lagartos
My name is Elmer Canul. I  invite you to my beautiful, peaceful little hometown, the town where I was born and have always lived, Río Lagartos, Yucatán, México. Click on the above links to see what we can do here.
 
At age 18 I became a fisherman, doing all kinds of fishing, including diving. That's pretty normal for here, because Río Lagartos is a fishing village. However, after fishing for eight years I decided I wanted to work with visitors, showing off our local natural wonders.

Though officially established during the Maya Caste War, Rio Lagartos has a much more ancient history, important as a stopping point along the Maya Gulf trade route, it was a favorite location to rest and eat. Today the town is a small fishing village with a tranquil atmosphere and a community centered around sustaining its unique traditions while still inviting visitors to enjoy the natural wonders nearby. You will find lodging, many excellent eating establishments and at least one store on every street to provide your day to day needs. The thriving capital of Mérida is less than a two hour drive to the east, Tizimin a 30 minute drive to the south. Chichén Itzá and many other ruins are located within a two hour drive.
