Are the Gulf coast beaches polluted?

| Private Reply
Wildbill is dead wrong. The Gulf waters along the northern Yucatán shores are among the most polluted waters in Mexico and it is a disservice to mislead people into thinking otherwise. The Gulf beaches from Campeche all the way to the Tamualipas coast are ugly brown stretches of sand with murky, normally polluted and unattractive water but the pollution of the water is especially atrocious along the northern Yucatan beaches from Isla Holbox to Celestun. To claim otherwise is irresponsible in the extreme.

Anyone with any knowledge of turbity knows that water murkiness is not a measure of water cleanliness. The Gulf of Mexico waters are murky and unattractive all the way from the western shore of Mobile Bay to Puerto Progreso, Yucatan but are splendidly clear and sparkling from the eastern shore of Mobile Bay to Panama City. The clearest water will kill your ass if Aunt Bess´s unprocessed turds are floating in it. Get serious.
