About Manialtepec Lagoon

During your stay in Puerto Escondido do not hesitate to escape to the nearby Laguna de Manialtepec, which is a very peculiar lagoon, because during the day, you may see its waters of a Mexican pink color and at night see them shine a blue intense bioluminescent.

Take a boat ride to observe the flora and fauna that inhabit it; mangroves, herons, iguanas, ducks, parrots and more are part of this impressive landscape. You can also swim in the small beach areas that are formed along the lagoon.

From May to November, when the water level rises due to the rains, you can take kayak or boat trips.Si quieres disfrutar del efecto de bioluminiscencia será mejor que agendes tu visita entre los meses de mayo a noviembre; además gracias a las lluvias, se pueden realizar excursiones en kayak o en barco
