Another major water body is the Blue River has 136 km of navigable stream and is also found as a natural border south of the entity that limits Belize Guatemala and Quintana Roo; arises in Guatemala through the Mayan Mountains, ending at the Bay Chetumal near the state capital, where it forms a channel 2.5 m deep, using boats passing through Belize. In the rainy season increases its extension taking advantage of it navigable for timber transport.
Blue River is located in the southwest of Chetumal. Other important rivers are the Jass, north of Calderitas, the Turbio Chiquilá east and south of the island of Holbox, the Indio, south of the Bay of the Holy Spirit, and Kik, northeast of Calderitas.
There are also gaps and countless undercurrents, which crop and have high performance. Sometimes emerge naturally to the surface and are called gouaches, and have agricultural and livestock uses. Sometimes they appear as layers of rock that cubreny show presentations or encuevados open wells that are simply called cenotes. Finally, there are some streams, tributaries of the Rio Hondo or flowing into Laguna Bacalar near Chetumal.
Quintana Roo forms a region with large plains and small slopes and elevations east. The predominantly limestone and permeable soil, thus allowing water infiltration of rainwater into the inner layers of underground aquifers systems, thus forming the aforementioned deposits and underground streams, which supply water to smaller towns with wells. Cenotes are water bodies that outcrop to the surface of the crust, its origin lies in water erosion caves, making them crumble and collapse causing these outcrops of water. As we said Quintana Roo is a plain of marine origin formed by Miocene rocks and Pleistocene rocks except for the bright red hills.
Tsek Land type 'is in the drained slopes and elevated areas, where water favors the presence of nutrients in its composition. The k 'Ankab lie at the foot of the highlands and products accumulate them from the weather and drainage is impeded, causing clusters clay.
The akalches are localized in the lower parts (watery and sheets with little or no drainage).
The forest covers most of the state, exceptions exist and logged areas inhabited by humans. On the coasts and lowlands surrounding regions exist where accumulate rainwater forming small ponds. These zones are uninhabited due to unsanitary pests (mosquitoes), among other factors caused by stagnant water.
The climate is tropical with summer rains, except in the southwest and southeast, dominated tropical temperature with periodic heavy rains dry winter in the northern regions. In short, the major climate in central and eastern regions, is tropical with rains in autumn. West also is tropical, but with summer rains. To the north, is savannah climate with regular rainfall and dry winter. The average annual temperature in the state is 26 ° C. The dry season covers February to May, and the rainy season from May...
