A long way by boat, not cheap. We saw numerous herons, pelicans, egrets and 3 crocs, all very close up. The flamigoes, however, were a long way away and not as many as I expected but they were very pink!

We spent a couple of hours touring Rio Largartos and seeing the wildlife and numerous flamingos. The scenery was beautiful and our guide spotted several alligators hiding in the mangroves which was fun to see. We also got out and floated in the salt ponds and also got a Mayan mud bath out of it as well. It was a... More

I have never seen flamingos that were so intensely pink in my life! They looked Photoshopped, but couldn't have been since I was seeing them with my very eyes! It is definitely a bit of a road trip, but we stayed at the Hacienda Chichen in Chichen Itza & made this one of our day trips using our rental car.... More

This boat trip was included in our Mayan 7 day tour, and prior to arriving we were told that during this trip we could see Crocodiles, Pink Flamingos, Herons, Storks, Seagulls, Hawks. We managed to see all the birds plus more, but on this day the Crocodile failed to appear, which perhaps was a good thing, as towards the end... More

We recently came back from the Mayan Riviera and did many excursions. We enjoyed them all. One that didn't have much pretence was the navigation through Ri@ Lagarto. We were not sure what to find. They told us we could see various birds and possibly Lagartos. We did see birds and no lagartos. The pink flamingos were the best sight.... More

We did this with friends and family, the drive was interesting as we passed thru some small villages and our tour guide was our friend who is very knowledgable and respectful of the culture and the land. Our boat guide found a horse shoe crab and explained to us that it was one of the oldest living crustations, he pointed... More

We did the eco-tour as part of of the Experincias Xcaret Ek Balam tour. Our tour guide mentioned that the boat driver would give a lot of educational and interesting info about the mangroves. He did not say a word to us the entire boat ride. The flamingos were pretty, but I would have rather spent that time at Ek... More

Visited Rio Largartos as part of a two stop one day trip. Started the trip with a speedboat ride through the magroves which was really enjoyable where we saw lots of different bird species. Ended up in the lagoon with lots of gorgeous pink flamingoes. Saw some horseshoe crabs which I have only ever seen on TV. Went onto the... More

At first I was not sure about this place... It's a good drive but once you get there it's beautiful ride once you cross the wooden bridge! The sea salt bath was fun, you actually float! Afterwards they take you to a clay mud bath ( careful a bit slippery) its fun afterwards we continued our tour full of mud... More

One of the best thing to do in Yucatan---2 hours easy drive from Cancun--boat trip rare birds--crocodile--flamingos--pink salines river--clay bath if wished--don't miss Porto San Felipe--just 20 min. drive and small colonial town of Tisimin--all on the same way--enjoy
