We’ve heard of pigs on beaches. We’ve even heard of flamingo resorts, but pink lakes? There are so many weird and wonderful things to see in the world. If you want to see something incredible, you might want to learn how to enjoy the pink lakes of Mexico.
Why Are The Lakes Pink?
The lakes are used to mine salt, meaning they are very shallow and only come up to people’s knees. This shallow water means that plankton, shrimp, and red algae are all near the surface of the water. The result? The water looks bright pink!
Explore The Local Town
Las Coloradas is a very small town that’s free from tourist spots and cafes. That means that everything is still just as it was all those years ago. Thankfully, there is one local restaurant and some bathrooms to keep people fed and happy during their trip.
Enjoy Some Photos
There are now some restrictions on the type of photos you can take after the pink lakes of Mexico became overrun with Instagram stars. You aren’t allowed any drones or DSLR cameras, but you can take pictures with your phone – which can be all you need to get some impressive shots of the area.
Visit Local Beaches
It’s not just the pink lakes of Mexico that draws people to the area. There are also several white-sand beaches in the area that are usually free from tourists. It’s almost like getting a slice of paradise all to yourself. With settings like these, it can be hard to remember you’re not in some kind of dream.
If you’re looking to enjoy the pink lakes of Mexico, then look no further. They are free from tourist traps and come with some of the most breathtaking beaches in the area. After all, how many times can we say we’ve seen a pink lake in our lifetime? That’s what we thought.
Ever think of enjoying a panoramic view of your favorite city from up above? If you do, then you’re in luck now! You don’t have to book a copter or try out paragliding to do so. You can enjoy the exact grand view of your city skyline, being suspended 30 feet in the air, with your feet completely grounded! Sounds farfetched? But, that’s exactly what is on offer from a brand new attraction of Times Square in NYC.
If you ever dreamt about exploring the sights of NYC from a random Midtown room, RiseNY is the place for you. It is a museum cum theme park style of ride, to give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The centerpiece of the site is a flight simulation ride, the first-ever in the city. It is a 46-seated ‘flying theatre’, which lifts the visitors up above 30 feet in the air. There, you will be gliding and dangling your feet over the iconic landmarks and skyline of New York, featured by an 8K aerial footage. A 40 foot 180-degree projection dome inside the room will project the footage, creating the sensation of a flight. The concept and design of RiseNY are inspired by the ‘Soarin’ over California’ ride in Disneyland. James Sanna, the CEO of NY-based entertainment company Running Subway, is the man behind creating this experience unique to the city.
The NYC Spirit
Tapping the latest technologies of simulative augmented reality, RiseNY features everything to bombard you with the ‘quintessential NYC spirit’ of Times Square. Along with the aerial footage, there will be scents, wind, and mist to heighten up the simulation, on the backdrop of two iconic soundtracks- Welcome to New York by Taylor Swift and Theme from New York by Frank Sinatra. Also, before soaring through the digital recreation of the just outside, you will enjoy a film on the city’s history directed by esteemed documentarians James Sanders and Ric Burns, and narrated by none other than Jeff Goldblum. The amazing attraction truly holds everything in store to make you immersed in the classic NYC essence.
