Laguna del Carpintero (Carpintero Lagoon)

Tampico

This lagoon stands out not only for being in the central part of Tampico, but for being attached to a mangrove where you can still see white herons and crocodiles.

If you want to embark on a tour aboard a boat, go to the Canal de la Cortadura, where you can find a group leading by a guide, who will take you to see this aquifer union made up of the Pánuco River and the Carpintero Lagoon.

During the journey, you will see murals made by urban artists and on each side the houses of the inhabitants, followed by sports and rest areas.

Once the canal ends and it seems like the end of the trip, a new one begins without getting off the boat. The waters extend and the houses disappear to enter the lagoon. The trees intertwine to make way for the mangrove swamp and among the urbanization nature remains present.

At the distance you can see Tampico’s Convention and Exhibition Center, an area where the most important concerts and shows in the city are presented. The whole ride takes just over an hour. At the end, you can buy handicrafts that are displayed where you started the tour.
