On the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, west of Merida, is the small town of Celestún and its natural lagoon of salty water next to the sea. Step on a boat to reach the interesting local flora and fauna, and get up close the flamingo bird population, pink in their colour due to the shrimps they find to eat in the shallow water. You can also take a short walk in the mangroves, where you will discover the impressive crystal-clear sweet water ascending right out of the underground into ponds.
