Yucatan Beaches

Yucatan is an exceptional state, full of natural riches and possessor of a unique coastline that goes from Celestún to Rio Lagartos and which is bathed, in its more than 378 kilometers of extension, by the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

If you want to see flamingos and other birds, we recommend visiting Celestún, San Felipe, Rio Lagartos and Sisal. Also in San Crisanto and Dzilam Bravo you can swim in the same day in salty sea water and fresh water with its cenotes and water holes.

If you want to feed raccoons in the El Corchito Ecological Reserve you can do it, you can also take a souvenir photo on the Progreso boardwalk with its characteristic arched pier.
