Celestun day trip



Trails at Celestun



Kayaking at Dzinitun

Mangrove tree

If you are interested in wildlife, you will enjoy exploring Celestun.

The wildlife reserve at Celestun is a bird sanctuary best known as a flamingo breeding spot, as well as a stop-over for migrating North American birds.  Depending on the season, you will be able to see cormorants, egrets, storks, pelican and ducks.  Although it is very likely that you will be able to watch flamingoes, it cannot be guaranteed.   Swimming at the lagoon is not allowed.

An eastward drive of under 1.5 hours will take you to the coastal area of Celestun.   The bird sanctuary is located across the lagoon bridge to the left, about 1 mile before the village.    The boat ride along the lagoon takes about 1.5 hours.   Each boat takes no more than 6 passengers as it is rather shallow lagoon.  A very early start is not recommended as tides will not allow the boats to depart; (water level has to reached a certain depth).  The highlight of the trip is of course bird watching, particularly the amazing flamingo flocks.    However, you will also navigate through a mangrove canal and to a fresh water source where swimming is allowed. The visit to the petrified forest has been eliminated because it is now flooded

After the visit, you can continue to the coastal town of Celestun to enjoy the beach and/or have lunch at one of the seaside restaurants
