The Santa Lucía river walk is better place you can go for a walk or just relaxing, but it's so good because when it's Christmas or any holiday the people that in Santa Lucía river walk decorate all the park and in the night looks amazing.
In Xcaret there are two different routes to see the underground rivers and both are worth seeing because they're already included in the price of your ticket. One of the routes is closed all the way and is not recommended for people afraid of the dark because it's completely dark. The other path has more outdoor areas and colorful fish to see, but not as many as are in Xel Ha (another park that's recommended if you are looking to snorkel). These rivers are part of the network of channels under the Yucatan Peninsula and it's nice to explore around down there, even though sometimes it's closed and you can see how much man-made work has been done on it.
The Usumacinta is one of the greatest rivers in Mexico which serves as a border between Chiapas, Mexico and Peten, Guatemala. The river has always been of great importance, since it represents a highway in the area, isolated in both countries. Covered in vegetation and full of wildlife, it is easy to see hundreds of birds, howler monkeys and crocodiles on its shores. Nearby you can visit Yaxchilan and Piedras Negras, two archaeological sites of the Mayan civilization. It is one of the most important border crossings between the two countries, easy to negotiate with boatmen a small discount.
I cross the Panuco River every two weeks to visit family and I always sit on the shore in the shade of some trees to watch the sunset and enjoy the tranquility. I´ve taken several photos on different days that have been particularly spectacular and special for me.
This wonderful turquoise blue river is surrounded by jungle. About 23 kilometres south of Palenque, it transports you to the grandeur of creation and its indigenous people. The children in the community will offer you a tour in a small wooden raft that they built themselves, and you can discover the surroundings from the water. The seafront is unbeatable at sunset, where you can see white herons flying over the river.
After a good party it is good to hold out as long as you can, until the morning rain lets see this beautiful landscape, it was good to have a camera at that moment. This picture was taken from Villahermosa. After the storm comes the calm, and this photo is a good example of that. A good place to be between two worlds. On the river grijalva. From here you can do a spot of sightseeing in the city center.
The ever beautiful Celestun estuary is approximately 90 km west of Merida. A place filled with beauty and where the most exotic yucatecas species live, such as the renound pink flamingo. The journey begins on a pier where you will enjoy the 2 hour trip along the Celstun estuary. The great advantage is that you don´t need to book, therefore rarely will you have to queue as there are 50 boats and 6 people per boat. So relax, there is room for everyone. From here we go in search of Esperanza estuary, approximately five miles away. This part is fun and exciting as the boat picks up speed. I recommend that you sit at the top of the boat and feel the air and all the beauty of the landscape in the flesh. You´ll love it!. This is good place to fish for shrimp, mackerel, crab and sea bass. What´smore there are over 300 types of birds: beautiful herons, frigates, cormorants, black hawks and even kingfishers without forgetting of course the proto, the Flamingos!. The journey continues ....
