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.We now have three waterfront rooms at "Ria Maya" Birding and Fishing Lodge.
The rooms are new,modern and very comfortable and just feet from the water with no road or traffic in front.

Bird watching, Fly Fishing, Photography, Flamingo & Crocodile Boat trips in Rio Lagartos, Yucatan
Rio Lagartos is the breeding site for the Yucatan's flock of 40,000 Flamingos .We have flamingos here all year!
The tarpon fishing is among the best
in the world.
Most people will only have a chance to visit the Rio Lagartos Bio Reserve only once.It is a remarkable place. Make sure you use a certified guide to make the experience all that it can be.The guys selling tours on the street don´t do the tours themselves.Normally they collect for the tour and take you to whoever is charging the least. The tour may be a little cheaper but is often disappointing and the experience less enjoyable and educational.
Ria Maya Restaurant and Lodge We have three water view rooms.The restaurant is on the second floor and has the best unobstructed view and sunsets. Fresh seafood Daily. Breakfast, lunch and suppers. Beer ,wine and Liquors served.
