Yalahau Lagoon, Holbox Island

Swim in a cenote at Yalahau Lagoon, where you can actually observe water coming out of the ground to make the pool. The crystal-clear water only makes it easier to see straight to the bottom, or traverse the wooden walkway that surrounds the lagoon for views and photo opportunities. This site is only reachable by boat; try to visit in the morning when dolphins gather here to eat. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Holbox Island holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yalahau Lagoon and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

The only downside of the place is that this so unregulated, is a reserve and as such they should prohibit the use of sunscreen or other products that alter the water's there, when we went we realized an oily layer on the water and was for all the people that got cub iertas blocker or other creams, should regulate that to preserve the place and there species inhabit
