Rio Lagartos is a small port town located on the northern Yucatan’s mangrove coast facing the Gulf of Mexico. Rio Lagartos is straddled by two of the most beautiful Biosphere Reserves in the world. Parque Natural San Felipe extends more than 20 miles to the west and Rio Lagartos extends more than 30 miles to the east.
There is enormous diversity in this environment. The Rio Lagartos reserve has two eco-regions; clear turtle grass flats transitioning to mangrove lined lagoons, and dry forests. All protect nearly 150,000 acres of upland forest, beaches, dunes and coastal wetlands. The Parque Natural San Felipe (San Felipe Park) is very similar to the ecosystem of the Rio Lagartos reserve.
