Do[edit][add listing]

Celestún is famous for their Mangroves and, especially, their Flamingos! You can book a tour from Mérida or you take a bus to Celestún and get a tour there. At the beach there are many boats that sell you a 2-hours-tour for 300 MXN (March 2019). However, almost 1,5 hours of that tour consists of getting into the mangroves and out again and the boat guys don't stop for any other animal than the Flamingos. On the entrence of Celestún there are many boats waiting for passangers directly inside the mangroves. You might get a better deal there! Just hop off the bus at the entrance to town after crossing the bridge (or when you see the boats on the left side).
