This is one of the strange treats of the Yucatan, and hardly anyone goes there because most people head straight to the Caribbean beaches. This lake is inland just a little bit, and if you drive by and see it from the highway, you think you're seeing the sea--it's so crystal-clear and blue-green. But it's freshwater, and a haven for lots of interesting wildlife. There's a little bit of a post-Tulum hippie scene in the main village on the lake, but most of the tourists here are Mexican--it's a weekend hangout for people who live in Chetumal, down the highway. So you get beautiful water and a very local vibe.
