Mark Twain said of bats they are “beautifully soft and silky; I do not know any creature that is pleasanter to the touch…” Well, we don’t know about petting them, but as residents of the Yucatan Peninsula we sure can appreciate what they do for us.  There are over 50 types of bats found in the Yucatan and their main diet is flying insects, particularly MOSQUITOS! Three cheers for the bats!

Visit the mysterious bat cave at Xcaret park!
