Great boat tour of the Biosphere Reserve. Sadly there were very few flamingos due to the tides, but the boat ride was pleasant and the trip through the mangroves was very interesting. My only complaint is that the lunch was a little underwhelming and there is very little to do in Celestun except the beach. I would still recommend this trip to other, but if you're not much of a beach person I would recommend bringing something to read or occupy your time.

I was a little sceptical when I booked the discounted tour. It was recommended on trip avisor and the price was good. I had to call the contact several times as the shuttle was one and a half hours late and a full mini van showed to pick us up. The driver was polite and made up some time driving to the site. We saw everything that the 100.00 tour saw in the same boats. to sum it up We didnt have a tour bus and didn't have a great lunch like the others but we saw 1000s of flamingos, we had lunch in celestun on the beach and we returned back safe. everyone in our group seemed to be happy for the price. we were gone around 7hours.

It's kind of a long ride, but the Flamingo tour was as promised and the beach was beautiful. The tour guide did not speak English, but one of the guests was recruited to translate.

The trip was well worth the investment. There were only five persons on our tour, so we had lots of room in the transit van and on the launch that takes you out on the estuary to see the flamingos. If you are a birder, there are plenty of other birds to see, as well. The village of Celestun is pretty sleepy and there's not much to see after the nice lunch overlooking the beach following the tour. We would gladly have swapped an hour of shore time for a longer tour on the estuary. The time passes really quickly, and before you know it the vision of pink is in the rear-view mirror.
