Description

This is a beautiful place to take pictures of the pink lake. I also want to note. If you are looking for a local person to take you around we have found a wonderful guy. His name is Aldo Vladimir Kuk xool. You can look him up on Facebook. Tell him Jen, Conor and Zohey sent you. Very little English but he is willing to learn and talk slowly with you to understand everything. SUPER friendly. We got to meet him whole family, as he invited us to his home for dinner.

Now the price is 193pesos pp for foreigners just to have a quick 30min tour, if you want to climb up the tower then its 263pesos. NOT WORTH IT! You see the same pink lake from the street for free. When entering town there will be many pushy tour guides with brochures, they offer tours to see flamingos, virgin beaches for 1000pesos. But dont support this scheme they are pulling. You can see all the places yourself just continuing down the coastal road - you will see many flamingos, just keep in mind that the salt fields on the right is private property and there are man on motorbikes that are watching it.

Because of much rain and some hurricanes the lake was grey. The guard of the looking tower said, it needs 3-4 months and much sun, to get rosa again...

The lake is super tourist. Approaching the lake, they see men who call you to parking. Dive the car before, so I could stop me in a street further and no one to disturb. We went walking and realizing that it was not a place where I would like to be, with people who surround you to get some money from you. I'm really tired of this type of treatment here in Mexico. If I could see the pink lake from which we were, we could take pictures and what else I wanted, without having to pay. I do not understand! But not to have problems, we did not do.
In fact, the lake is giant and has otherwise access (in this way, we stopped to see the flamingos and a young man stopped to say that we could not be without a tourist guide, which we had to return to the city, we ignore clearly) on this route, beyond the flamencos, if you can see the continuation of the lake, but I do not know why only the first part is a strong pink. To avoid bad moments, we decided not to pass the view and to, I do not recommend it.

El lago es Super turístico. Acercándose al lago, ya se ven hombres que te llaman para estacionar. Desvíe el auto antes, así que pude detenerme en una calle más lejos y sin nadie para molestar. Fuimos caminando y me de cuenta de que no era un lugar donde me gustaría estar, con personas que te rodean para obtener algo de dinero de ti. Estoy realmente cansada de este tipo de tratamiento aquí en México.
Si podía ver el lago rosa desde donde estábamos, podíamos tomar fotos y qué más quisiera, sin tener que pagar. ¡No entiendo! Pero para no tener problemas, no hicimos. De hecho, el lago es gigante y tiene acceso de otra manera (de esta otra manera, nos detuvimos para ver a los flamencos y un señor detuvo para decirnos que no podíamos estar sin una guía turística, que teníamos que volver a la ciudad, ignoramos claro) en esta ruta, más allá de los flamencos, si puedes ver la continuación del lago, pero no sé por qué solo la primera parte es un rosado fuerte. Para evitar momentos malos, decidimos no pasar para ver el lago y, por lo tanto, no lo recomiendo.

wanted 100peso per person and not allowed to use an actual camera to take a photo. Was 6 full size busses plus mini bus and sprinters full of people. We decided to continue down the road and got some really good photos of the flamingos all by ourselves.

Cool place! If you heading to el Cuyo along the coast road you will see plenty of these, we still went in, it’s nice to support the locals! It was 60pp and you can get them to take photos of you in front of the pink lake!

O lago Rosa é impressionante, valor da entrada custa $50,00 pesos. Não dá mais para entrar de carro, somente caminhando. Depois passamos a noite perto do mar, bem tranquila a cidade.

The lakes are amazing! Sadly, the area is starting to be touristic. The lakes are now fenced, it costs 50pp to be able to walk around them. There are guides selling their tours and we saw tourist buses come around. Come early or stay late!
