RIO LAGARTOS FROM RIVIERA MAYA

You cannot miss Rio Lagartos while you are in the Peninsula of Yucatan. It’s a seaside town in Yucatán in Mexico, located 165km (102 miles) from Progreso. It’s a village with friendly people, great seafood and small hotels. Ecotourism is the main activity in the zone. Rio Lagartos is a magical place. It actually holds a Natural Reserve called Ría Lagartos. The difference between the Río (river) and the Ría (sea inlet) is how the law protects the reserve. It is called Río Lagartos due to the huge concentration of crocodiles living in the area. The reason for the law to protect the Ría Lagartos is for all the endemic species living within, as well as the migratory ones. One living example of the first one are the Pink Flamingos, which you will most likely see in any boat trip you take throughout the river. How does this Day Trip work?
