Stunning! Spectacular! Our group of 17 decided to take this tour on a Monday. We were the only people there in September. Snacks, water, soda and bug spray are for sale which you can take on the water. We broke off into three boats, 7 to a boat. Each boat had a canopy but being on the water was cooling. I don't remember how long the tour actually was but at least an hour to an hour and a half. Beware, the guides only speak spanish. We definitely saw many flamingos and the guides were extremely knowledgeable about the reserve. We hopped off the boat and walked to a lagoon where we saw the most flamingos. Take your bug spray as the mosquitoes are relentless. Even spray your clothes, not just your bare skin. We spent a good amount of time taking photos, then got back on the boat and raced to the other end of the waterway to walk along a small boardwalk in the water. Good for pictures. I highly recommend this tour. I think the price was around $15 per person, maybe a bit less. Totally worth it.

My Celesun tour (supposedly English/Spanish was almost entirely in Spanish. Guide paid little attention to my needs.

Having driven 90k from Merida you will come a bridge a couple of k outside of town. To the left is the location of the motor boat tours of the flamingo areas (down the road a bit is an ecco tour version with canoes). The cost of a boat is 1800 pesos. We approached two other couples to form a group of six cutting the cost to 300 pesos per person. You wizz over the lagoon and the knowledge guide finds flamingos and identifies other birds. A ride through the mangroves followed by a brief stop completes the tour. About an hour and 15 minutes.

If you are a Nature lover, you can not miss the chance to see pink flamingos, many different kinds of birds: cormoranes, fragatas and a marvelous manglar. The people from Yucatan are so lovely, they are always willing to help with a smile.

Just over the bridge and a quick turn to the left you can park your car and obtain a ticket to take a ride in a tour boat to visit the area where the majority of flamingos like to spend there time. You will see some white ones as well, these are the youngsters as it takes up to two years for them to turn pink from ingesting the baby shrimp. You will have plenty of photo opps. You will also see bird island and travel through the mangroves to the clear water hole where salt water and fresh spring water mix. If you are lucky you might spot an alligator. Wear something you can swim in, put on your sun screen and don't forget to tip your boat driver and visit the gift shop after.
