Laguna Milagros

Laguna Milagros

In Milagros Lagoon, Chetumal’s warmth beckons, an adventure destination to visit on your next vacation.

In Laguna Milagros, the multicolored hues of its sunrises and sunsets are mirrored in the water.

Organize a day trip to discover Laguna Milagros, an expanse of turquoise blending marine life and the town of Huay Pix, in Othón P. Blanco, Quintana Roo.

Laguna Milagros is part of the region’s lagoon system—together with Bacalar, the Hondo River, Xul-Há, and the Chac estuary—drawing tourists with its aquatic activities and camping by the lagoon where you can gaze at the glimmering night sky.

Along the lagoon’s shore, you’ll find restaurants serving seafood and places like the Santuario del Bagre (Catfish Reserve). It has been around for 50 years and is a great spot to enjoy specialty dishes featuring this fish. Across from the restaurants, there are islets ideal for swimming in shallow water and observing wildlife such as iguanas and water birds.

Water Activities

The Chac estuary weaves together its diverse lagoons through a maze of channels. Delight in exploring it by kayak and imagine you’re following the route pirates used in times gone by.

Boating activities are also available to explore the mangroves and follow the paths where, with luck, you might see manatees swimming freely after being released by their caretakers who work to preserve this endangered mammal.

Fun Fact

Don’t miss your chance to explore the 1.2 miles set aside for canoeing. It is a venue for local and national rowing and canoeing competitions. Don’t miss it!

Laguna Milagros is the perfect setting for doing almost anything you want to do, such as mountain biking along the trails—the location, climate, and landscapes make this an experience you won’t want to miss.
