Is this really a place on Earth? Is this a filter? Believe it or not, this otherworldly pink lagoon is real! It’s actually in Mexico in the Ria Lagartos Biosphere Reserve. Hidden away in the tiny fishing village of Las Coloradas, this lagoon gets its vivid pink color from the red hued plankton and multitudes of shrimp in the water. If you time your trip right, you’ll see hoards of migrating flamingos too. I’m putting this one on my bucket list right away.
