Description rio lagartos y las coloradas

During this tour, we will pass under the Las Coloradas bridge in order to reach the salt deposits, where different bodies of water take part of this process, some of them colored with eye-catching pink shades. Once there, we will be able to enjoy a Maya bath, covering our body with nutrient-filled clay. The next step will be visiting an unspoiled beach, where we’ll rinse off the clay in its crystal-clear waters. Before we get onboard the bus, we’ll visit a waterhole, surrounded by impressive mangrove of up to 82 feet tall and authentic crocodiles of the region. On our way back, we will make our last stop in order to see one of the fantastic cenotes of the area, located inside a cattle ranch, typical of the Flamingos Route, and where we’ll get to swim and relax the perfect closing for an intense adventure.
