Full-Day Tour to Las Coloradas Pink Paradise in Yucatan and Rio Lagartos.

Discover the pink of Lake Las Coloradas and the contrast of the Lagartos River with the beautiful flamingos on the day trip from your hotel door. On your visit to the Riviera Maya you can't miss Las Coloradas, an amazing paradise that we must all visit.

There is a place in the port of Las Coloradas, Yucatan, which seems the scene of a fantastic dream. This visual spectacle is known as "Pink Lake". In this fishing village, the salt industry is indispensable. It was the salt deposits that accumulated in the lake that stained its waters with a spectacular pink hue.

Rio Lagartos is a beautiful fishing port where you can find an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, but it also offers adventure and fun as it safeguards the Biosphere which protects the flora and fauna of the place.
