Flamingo Reserves

Flamingos in the Yucatan
Wetlands in the Yucatan Peninsula are home to many different birds, including flamingos, herons and egrets. Two large Flamingo Reserves, Flamingo Mexicano de Celestun Natural Park and Rio Largartos Natural Park, are breeding areas for flamingos.
Flamingo Mexicano de Celestun Natural Park – On the boat trip up the saltwater estuary, you'll see flamingos standing around in groups in the shallow water, along with cormorants, egrets, osprey and herons. When the flamingos spread their wings to take flight, this is something you don't see in the zoo. Look for the baby flamingos that are gray with black tipped wings.
Celestun
    The boat also glides through the channels lined with mangrove trees that feel like the "Lost World." You'll see huge termite's nests in the trees. Bring your swimsuits along to take a dip in the fresh water spring.
