                              Rio Lagartos is a village with
friendly people, excellent
fresh seafood and good small
hotels. Many visitors who
visit only for a day wish that
they had planned for a overnight stay.
Day visits from the Riviera Maya
or Merida make for a long day
of driving.An overnight stay gives
you the opportunity to visit interesting places while traveling to and from
and to take advantage of more of the things we offer.Come visit for a day
or a week.We will make your stay
educational,fun and delicious.
