Naturally Pink Lagoon in Mexico Is The Most Instagram-Worthy Place To Be

ADVERTISEMENT

Mexico’s pink lagoon must be the ultimate tourist attraction and the reason why Instagram was created. It’s SO pink that many people find it hard to believe the realness of this natural phenomenon. However, it’s completely real, and there’s a perfectly scientific explanation as to why this insta-worthy place exists.

The lagoon can be found in the tiny fishing village of Las Coloradas, located on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. No magic or paint was used to color the lagoon. It’s actually inhabited by the red plankton and brine shrimp, and they dye the water with their chemicals. The beautiful place is also decorated with the piles of salt as Las Coloradas was once a salt mining town.

Would you add this bright pink lagoon to your places to see bucket list? We sure would, but if you need some more convincing, scroll down below and check out our cool photos!
