Mexico Is Home To A Naturally Pink Lagoon That Looks Like It Came Straight Out Of A Fairy-Tale

Mexico’s pink lagoon is SO pink that many people cannot believe it’s real. However, it’s completely natural, and there’s a perfect scientific explanation to it.

The lagoon is located in the tiny fishing village of Las Coloradas, on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. The lagoon is actually inhabited by the red plankton and brine shrimp and they dye the water with their chemicals. The fairytale-like landscape is also decorated with the piles of salt as Las Coloradas was once a salt mining town.
