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.
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.
Anyone else feel like leaving everything behind and taking off to bask in this pink paradise?
