This natural protected area is a low deciduous forest and tropical savanna that features exotic vegetation and rare fauna such as flamingos and alligators.

The encounter with plant and animal diversity of this sanctuary will amaze you

Most people who book tours to Celestun usually wants to see the famous pink flamingos that can be seen in this estuary, particularly at the Tambor area. Its vibrant feathers are the pinkest in all world thanks to the amount of carotene in the water they live. In fact, flamingos feed their young with a red liquid that contains this ingredient that provides them this color in their feathers. These birds, as well as pinguins, lay only one egg per year and are monogamus. 

But flamingos are not the only kind of wildlife that can be seen in this eco-touristic bird paradise! People in our trips to Celestun discover that this region in Mexico is home to a variety of colorful wildlife, including the aforementioned Caribbean pink flamingos, as weel as herons, pelicans, albatrosses, and ducks. Additionally, the area is home to more than 230 different species of mammals, including endangered species such as jaguars, ocelots, and spider monkeys, as well as sea turtles and crocodiles.
