It is not all beach
Cancun, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, is enchanting because of its blue-clad landscapes. And it is that not any place is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, of beautiful blue shades, and a vast lagoon, Nichupté Lagoon, home of mangroves and great biodiversity.
If you want to admire the best panorama of the area go to the hotel zone, also called Cancun island, a strip of land that is situated between the sea and the lagoon. In addition to contemplating Nichupté Lagoon from afar, why not explore its mangrove-lined canals and perform a wide variety of sporting activities?
Nichupté is actually a system of lagoons that measures more than three thousand hectares and is composed by seven bodies of water, among them the Bojórquez Lagoon, the Laguneta del Mediterráneo and the Laguna del Amor, named for its heart shape. Nichupté also communicates with the Caribbean Sea through two channels, the Siegfried and the Nizuc. The main attraction of the lagoon are its mangroves, Protected Natural Area by the Mexican Government. These ecosystems are vital because they protect the Cancún coast from erosion and erosion resulting from storms and hurricanes. Mangroves reduce the level of pollutants in the water, favoring biodiversity and preserving the nearby reef systems of Isla Mujeres, Punta Cancún and Punta Nizuc.
Nichupté is home to four types of mangroves that shelter innumerable wild species: red, black mangrove, button and white mangrove. They inhabit endemic plants and animals, such as crocodiles, leopard frogs, iguanas and white turtles.
