No man ever steps in the same river twice,

and he’s not the same man.

A physical feature is the submarine/sublacustrine cenotes (sinkholes beneath the lake’s surface) that are thought to be the most extensive of any in the world. Cenotes are located both within the lake and on its adjacent shores. Cenotes are of two types, those on land and those that are sublacustrine (submarine). While the land cenotes are more abundant than the sublacustrine cenotes, the latter are of particular interest because they are the direct conduits of freshwater exchange between land and Lake Bacalar.
Lots of kayaking, small boat sailing, and windsurfing.
Usual to have afternoon breezes.

At dusk, resting by the beach.
Locals seem conscious of the problem and are spreading the awareness and looking for better answers. We hope they, unlike many other popular places, make a difference in saving this no longer pristine but still beautiful place. Good luck.
