This All-Natural Pink Lake Is Gonna Make You Pack Your Bags And Book A Flight To Mexico

You might have heard the famous Spanish painter, Salvador Dali, once said he hated Mexico because he couldn’t stand a place more surrealist than he could ever be… and Mexico has never ceased to prove him right.

Hidden on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula lies a heart-stopping, breathtaking paradise known as Las Coloradas.

Surrounded by blue skies, white salty dunes, exotic wildlife, and a cotton-candy colored lagoon, this stunning¬†region is so surreal people have a hard time believing it truly exists – Don’t blame them, it is just too much.

Roses are red, violets are blue, believe it or not, pink is the real color of this lagoon – Okay, my rhymes are not astonishing, but that an abundance of red plankton, salt, and high levels of microorganisms’ chemicals in the water can dye a lake like a strawberry milkshake, sure is!

Fun fact: Flamingos’ feathers are actually white, however, they stain pink because they eat these same microorganisms! Actually, you might be able to spot a couple on the region along with some other locals like sea turtles, jaguars and crocodiles.
