This trip was terrific! Our guide, Wilbur, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw thousands of flamingos on the boat ride, and we got quite close so we could take photos and enjoy the experience. When we went through the mangroves, Wilbur proved he was good at spotting birds and wildlife: we saw coatis, a green kingfisher, and a black and white warbler. Lunch was also good--because you purchase it separately from the tour, you get to order whatever you want. Try the ceviche.
Beyond my expectations. We saw thousands of flamingos in large flocks just like the picture. No petrified forest but we had a delicious lunch.
Perfect day! Courteous mini van driver. Boat tour was amazing.got as close as possible to the flamingos and alligators. Beach and drinks were great finish to a perfect day!
Great tour. Not too many flamingos out and about, but the mangroves were great and lunch in Celestun was a pleasure. Would do it again
Great side trip. There were perhaps over a thousand flamingoes.
Mangrove tour was very interesting. A nice visit to a beach, and seafood lunch,
(probably in place of the petrified forest) but nobody minded. Wonderful New Years Day.

Good day out if you like to get away from the towns and city. Some beautiful scenery along the way, just be sure to have insect repellent. The beach at the end on a hot day is great.
There were only 5 other people on this tour which was nice. We very much enjoyed the boat ride and watching flamingos. There were so many of them! Drive through mangroves was also very nice. We just wish the boat ride was a bit longer. Beach in Celestun was empty compared to beaches in Playa del Carmen and Cancun. There were mainly local families enjoying their beach time together. It had a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Very pleasant day trip to escape the heat of Merida.
The tour of the Celestun Flamingos and the Mangrove Boat Ride was very good. However, Mayaland's tour guide informed us that the
Tempeten Petrified Forest was in a different area and did not form part of this tour, even though we had paid for it. Mayaland, yet again,
misrepresented what had been sold to us. This marred what would have been a very nice day.
This was not a good experience for us. This time of year there were only a handful of flamingos and they were not in the usual place so we walked to a different area. It was mosquito infested and uncomfortable. Tours should not be sold this time of year. When you pay to see 10,000 flamingos and you see 15 it is very discouraging. Our driver, Ivan, was very reckless, drive very fast , and we felt unsafe. After our lunch he told the other person in our group that we wanted to leave (which was not true) and so we left early. The entire day was not at all what we expected and we were very disappointed.
