It is not known for it’s size, but Laguna de Labradores has a draw all of its own. The deep blue waters of this lake hold many local legends and an eerie calm meets visitors who chose to relax along the shores or fishing from within.
Though the lake appears very normal and inconsequential, Laguna de Labradores reaches depths of up to 300 meters. It has been studied by curious scientists around the world. Reportedly, the lake was formed by underground faults and it is believed that the Cenote de Gavilan, located nearby, connects to the lake with underground water currents.
The lake is a favorite sport for avid fisherman. Species of catfish, rainbow trout and carp can be caught along with mojarra, a type of tilapia often used for bait. Of course if fishing doesn’t suit your interest, swimming and picnicking along the shore is quite a wonderful way to spend the day.
