Explore the inside of the sea salt production plant that is home to the famous pink lakes of Las Coloradas


  • Ride on our off-road vehicle along the pink lakes of Las Coloradas
  • Visit the inside of a functioning sea salt producing plant.
  • Learn about the Rio Lagartos biosphere reserve


The tour begins by boarding our all-terrain transport heading to the interior of our lagoon system that has wetlands with high biological diversity, located in a protected natural area categorized as a 'Biosphere Reserve', that is, it has areas that present a high degree of importance and ecological preservation at the national level. Our saline production lagoon system turns out to be a perfect habitat for many resident and migratory waterfowl, since it meets the conditions they seek for shelter, food, reproduction and breeding, the most outstanding being the Caribbean pink flamingo. (This bird can be seen on the tour, but it will not always be the case, since they change places according to their feeding needs) Then you will enter an unforgettable tour in the heart of the largest salt mine in the country; During our tour you will be able to appreciate the production process of sea salt by evaporation, the formation of salt crystals in the crystallization zone, and the storage in an immense hill that will make you believe that you are on the surface of the moon. If your visit is during the harvest season, you will also be able to see this process where specialized machinery collects the salt. Of course, this visit would not be complete without visiting the spectacular pink waters of Las Coloradas.
