Is Rio Lagartos Worth Visiting?

Rio Lagartos, a remote fishing village located on the northern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, is a legendary sanctuary for nature lovers and bird watchers. The village lies at the heart of the Rio Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, a protected area famous for its flamingo colony, crocodile-filled mangroves, vibrant pink seas, and a variety of indigenous marine fauna and flora. Besides spotting and photographing the wildlife and cruising on boat tours through the mangroves, visitors can indulge in relaxing mud baths and discover the beauty of the rare pink salt ponds.
