The kingdom of Flamingos in Yucatan: Celestún

Celestun, meaning “painted stone” in Yucatec Maya, is a tranquil fishing village located west of Merida along the coast of Yucatan state. Celestun is home to secluded stretches of beautiful beachfront and palapas (thatched-roof restaurants) serving up some of the best seafood in the state. It’s the perfect destination for those looking to escape the city crowds and get back to nature.

The main attraction in Celestun is the Reserva de la Biosfera Ria Celestun (Celestun Biosphere Reserve), a large coastal wetland reserve and wildlife refuge.
Situated near the border with Campeche and spanning an impressive 146,000 acres, the Celestun Biosphere Reserve is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Yucatán state and comprises one of the largest areas of mangroves in the Gulf of Mexico. The reserve is shallow, overgrown with vegetation and dotted with lagoons, salt flats and cenotes (underwater sinkholes).

The Celestun Biosphere Reserve is part of a fragile eco-system. Freshwater from the ria (estuary) mixes with saltwater from the Gulf of Mexico creating a habitat that’s perfectly suited to flamingos and waterfowl, and the reserve is home to more than 300 species of birds including egrets, pelicans, herons and a large flamingo colony numbering into the thousands.

Once in Celestun, you can hire a boat to tour the reserve. The Celestun Biosphere Reserve can be visited in a day and the experience is truly exhilarating. Boat excursions typically last a few hours and travel along the Ria Celestun where you can spot a variety of wildlife, including the pink flamingos for which this region is famous, as well as swim in freshwater springs and visit a petrified forest.

Feeling adventurous? Rent a kayak to navigate the narrow waterways that lead through the mangroves and explore some of the most remote areas of the reserve.
