Manatee Lagoon

Included in your admission

In the middle of Xcaret’s tropical vegetation, you can visit a quiet lagoon where you can distinguish its inhabitants moving in the bottom: Pompom and Nohoch.

Pompom and Nohoch are two rescued manatees who have their home in this lagoon. It is specially for them, because it has the right depth and temperature for their care and conservation. Here, they are fed and meticulously monitored by experts in the care and protection of marine mammals.

Manatees are a very curious species: they have a body similar to a whale, fins like seals, and the face of a sea lion. Despite its large size (up to 1,100 pounds), they are very calm and affectionate. Pompom and Nohoch love slow swimming, eating, and above all, resting.
