Celestun and 30,000 flamingos

After leaving Merida we rode west to the coast of the Gulf of Mexico at Celustun.

It is famous for Octopus hunting and the almost 30,000 pink flamingos that flock here. We saw a few birds from the bridge, but hired a boat for an hour tour of the estuary. This got us up close to the flamingos as well as herons, and huge Canadian pelicans. We also toured thru the mangrove forrest.

The town itself has a chain of restaurants along the white sand beach where we had amazing prawns and ceviche.
