The Pacific littoral of Oaxaca presents interesting perspectives of its lagoons. These places are paradisiac and unique surrounded by an abundant and varied fauna and flora, which lend excitement and life to the landscape.

The existing biodiversity is an important element of the lagoon system in the region. The biodiversity comprises tropical vegetation, coastal dunes, and mangroves, a hibernation zone for diverse migratory and resident birds, which present an awesome display.

Because of its importance and natural beauty, foremost among them is the Laguna de Manialtepec (Manialtepec Lagoon) and the Parque Nacional Lagunas de Chacahua (Chacahua Lagoons National Park), which can be admired alongside the coastal Puerto Escondido-Acapulco road. It is possible to practice all types of aquatic sports and savour traditional foods under the palapas available for this purpose.
