Natural Aquarium

Natural Aquarium (Yal ku).

Yal ku is one of the best and most famous snorkeling sites in the area. It is an inlet of water that was formed by a series of sink holes. It is a lagoon of fresh water that mixes with salt water as it is connected to the sea. This combination of sweet and salt water, cold and warm causes a brackish effect. This effect has the look of cloudyness or looking through oil but it is just the two waters mixing. This lagoon or cenote attracts schools and schools of brightly colored tropical fish and sea life. There is even the occasional Sea Turtle cruising around. The inlet is almost always protected from the wind and allows for leisurely snorkeling in a pool like environment that is visually rustic and wild with mangrove and various birds and wildlife enjoying the habitat. It is truly remarkable and part of our basic tour.
