Boca Paila is a well known local attraction for the Tulum area in Quintana Roo. It's located in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. I took this shot from the old bridge for fun. The new bridge is very sturdy.
It's a great place for fishing. You'll see many locals here with hand lines and catching plenty of fish particularly at dawn and dusk. I've personally seen them hauling up fish weighing in at 20-25 lbs and having three of them like that already!
The water way is the one short cut to the back bay area on a peninsula extending 45 kilometers. Most visitors find this a great place to take a break on their way to Punta Allen.

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.
The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.
The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III.
From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.
With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities. Expect massive leaps in creative output in your area!
