Celestun is a secluded fishing village with a beautiful white sandy beach well known for the vast population of flamingos. If you travel to Merida, a visit to Celestun should definitely be on your list.
There are so many things to do in Merida like admiring the colonial architecture, trying the delicious Yucatan cuisine, enjoying the night music festivities. Merida is also the perfect home-base for day trips to the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza or Uxmal and also the beautiful Celestun Biosfera.
Different than the popular Chichen Itza or Tulum, the Coba ruins have a more authentic look, with trees and bushes growing from the pyramid stones. The remote location, the fewer tourists, the access to the peak of the pyramid, make Cobá one of the most beautiful Mayan sites of Yucatan.
Sian Ka’an is a beautiful natural attraction in Yucatan Penisula. We wanted so much to visit this place and float through mangroves forest, in a Mayan canal, on a self-guided day trip, but we couldn’t find much information about it. After some research, we realized it was quite easy to organize a half-day trip to Sian Ka’an and Muyil, not to mention affordable.
