Full description
Start with pickup from your hotel in Mérida at approximately 11:15 AM. Travel east of the city along the coast before stopping for lunch at a local restaurant. At approximately 3:30 PM, arrive at the beautiful Cancunito Beach, where you will have some time to relax and swim in the ocean.

Afterwards, continue towards the pink lagoons of Las Coloradas, which get their unique color from the abundance of salt deposits in the water. Enjoy the sunset on the horizon before making your way to the small fishing village of Río Lagartos. Rio Lagartos is located within the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, one of the main nesting areas for the American Flamingo on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Embark on a night tour in the reserve and go in search of native crocodiles. Discover the sounds and colors of the reserve by night and try to spot a variety of marine creatures. After approximately 2 hours, begin the journey back to Mérida, where you will arrive at 11:30 PM.
