I never heard about this place before until the first night arrived in Cancun, woke up by the noise from outside, and then start to check for the future trips, when I typed pink beach in the Bahamas, this pink lake nearby Cancun jumped out from google, so I changed my plan, cancelled one of my excursion, booked this one in the last minute, and it run out to be my BEST day in this trip!

Amazing pink lake, super cool ride on Río Lagartos, saw wild crocodiles, flamigos and all kind of birds, got Mayan mud mask directly from the mud,saw super cute baby crocodiles, the meal is super good too (not like other excursion I took, comercial buffet ) you choose your dish in a good Mexican resto !

The excursion is long, but really worth it! And the tour guide Pablo is super cool! Thank you!
Amazing Trip to See Wildlife and Pink Lagoons

Though it's a long day and a long distance from Cancun, this trip is definitely worth taking. The pink lagoons are surreal and definitely Instagram worthy. The boat trip to see the wild flamingos, pelicans, frigate birds and alligators/crocodiles was incredible. You also get to visit an alligator/crocodile farm, where you hold baby alligators and pose near giant adult ones. The only down side to our trip, was our guide who has very dismissive of the group, and devoted all his attention to just four people who vied for his attention. Seems like his time management and communication skills were off. With a better tour guide, this trip would be 5/5 stars!
