Yalahau is a breathtaking freshwater spring that many refer to as a cenote. The legend says that ancient Mayans considered it the fountain of youth. Yalahau is also the largest freshwater reservoir in the area. There is a small restaurant (Captains mess), where you can order deliciously fresh deep-fried fish, Ceviche, fish tacos, beer, water, sodas, and fresh coconuts.
Bird Island is our birdwatching stop, a tiny island where we will observe all sorts of migratory and local bird species, including egrets, red herons, cormorant ducks, white, grey and brown pelicans, storks, white ibis, roseate spoonbills, ospreys, pink flamingos, amongst many other species from the bird observatory built on the island’s edge.
At Passion Isle we also get off the boat to take a short walk around this tiny isle with a bit of luck we will be welcomed by the iguanas and some crabs. Sometimes this small island is the favorite den of the pink flamingo which arrives on the island between April and October each year.
