Nichupté Lagoon

Cancún

Nichupté Lagoon System is a natural reserve of about three thousand hectares that overlooks Cancún and the Caribbean ocean. Seven lagoons give life to Nichupté where you can sail on speed boats, kayaks or paddles. Others prefer to dive or snorkel, looking for the remains of a sunken ship in a water source.

The most visited is the Laguna del Amor (Love Lagoon) because of its peculiar heart shape. From here, some canals detach that can be toured to find four species of mangroves which help to protect or to avoid great devastation caused by hurricanes in Cancún. During the tour you will be able to see turtles, leopard frogs, crocodiles, blue crabs and different types of birds. It is home to more than 160 species.

Do not disregard when a hotel offers you a lagoon view room! Unlike other beach destinations of the Mexican Pacific, in Cancún the sunsets aren´t on the sea side.

Look for a guided tour by the Nichupté Lagoon because they can take you to the Museo Subacuatico de Arte (MUSA) galleries.
