While visiting Mexico, most people head to its sandy beaches. Of course, these are absolutely incredible to visit, but they’re not all that Mexico has to offer. While Mexico’s beaches made it a vacation destination, there are plenty of natural wonders in this beautiful country that are worth exploring.
Isla Espiritu Santo, Baja California Sur
Isla Espiritu Santo is a UNESCO Heritage Site and natural protected area that will take your breath away. You can arrive by boat from La Paz or the Malecon pier. You’ll be able to see a stunning world of biodiversity that includes 32 species of reptiles, 98 species of birds, and 16 species of flora and fauna.
Los Coloradas, Yucatan
If you’re ever visit the Yucatan peninsula, you absolutely cannot miss going to Los Coloradas. The lakes here are visually stunning due to their pink color, which are created by the tiny critters living in the waters. To match the beautiful water, you can sometimes catch pink flamingoes that get their color from the same bacteria in the water. It’s certainly one of the most impressive sights you can see.
Tamul Waterfall, San Luis Potosi
