Its community speaks mostly Spanish (and many speak Mayan as well), and remains authentic and family-oriented.

It is located within the Rio Lagartos UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, which means it is of “unusual scientific and natural interest” and is home to thousands of plant and animal species including pink flamingos, turtles, manta rays, and dolphins.
