Our vacataion planning experience with Rio Lagartos Advanrtures was quite disappointing. We'd visited their website and thought we'd like to stay in their lodgings a couple of nights, dine at the restaurant, and take the tour. Well, I don't know what's going on with Diego...More

We bookend the deluxed tour to the flamingo's, which gives you more time to watch the flamingo's. There are plenty, but it is nice to watch them for some time. Our guide gave us a lot of information and was respectful of nature. Nice combination...More

A lake where salt is produced, seashore. Water turns pink and it's a great day out although a long drive from Cancun. Great to explore nearby villages and take a tour to see flamingos.

Give yourself plenty of time for the drive from Valladolid, and arrive early enough for a pre-trip lunch at the Ria Maya restaurant. The tour starts about 3 p.m. We were four women, two of whom were photographers. Our guide, whom we highly recommend, was...More

I am not sure, but you can certainly ask. I think the answer will be yes.
Is it possible to visit from Riviera Maya.

Yes. We stayed in that area first and drove to Rio Lagartos. The roads were very good - the toll road is best to use. We thought it was an easy drive.
