Reserva de la Biosfera Ría Celestún

Reserva de la Biosfera Ría Celestún information

Lonely Planet review

The 591-sq-km Reserva de la Biosfera Ría Celestún is home to a huge variety of animals and birdlife, including a large flamingo colony. The best months to see the flamingos (via a boat tour) are from March or April to about September, outside the season of the nortes (northerly winds).

Morning is the best time of day, though from 4pm onward the birds tend to concentrate in one area after the day’s feeding, which can make for good viewing.
