Laguna Guerrero

Chetumal (Grand Costa Maya)

A paradise surrounded by vegetation

While in Chetumal you have to visit the Laguna Guerrero that connects with the Chetumal Bay. It is a strait approximately eight kilometers ( almost 13 miles) long, surrounded by mangroves where it is possible to observe fauna of the region such as birds, local fish, manatees, herons and spoonbills, among others.

In this lagoon you can find "El mirador Dos Hermanos" which is a tower over 20 meters (65 feet) high. It is an excellent option to take pictures of the surroundings of the bay and an ideal place to rest and have some food.

Species care

If you want to know more about manatees, we recommend you visit the Centro de Atención y Rehabilitación de Mamíferos Acuáticos del Área Natural Protegida Estatal of the “Santuario del Manatí-Bahía de Chetumal”. It is a corral of more than 20 meters (65 feet) long, here Daniel the Manatí is in captivity, he was rescued since he was a baby, on the shores of the Bay of Chetumal and currently, in this his new home, he goes out to explore and live with other manatees, helping the reproduction of this species.

In this place they will explain to you more about the biology of manatees, as well as the measures that are being taken to keep these endangered mammals in good condition. Here you can see specimens of manatees from Belize and from the Rio Hondo area.
