The Yal Ku Lagoon is unique with a mangrove landscape. As a highlight of the mangrove landscape, there is an opening from the lagoon to the ocean. This provides a mix of fresh water as it exits from the cenote and salty water as it comes from the ocean. The mix of water is the perfect environment for colorful, tropical fish to stay before moving into the ocean. You will certainly see species of marine life that you have never seen in your lifetime.
