Why are the waters of Chiapas turquoise?

The rivers of Chiapas, due to the karstic terrain, they give it the peculiar Turquoise Color to the area, as we see in Agua Azul, Montebello Lagoons, Las Nubes or any place of water in Chiapas that forms in this type of soil. The karst mantle has minerals his soluble in water. When sunlight hits the water, part of its radiation is absorbed and transformed into heat, and the other part is dispersed by the own water molecules, where the minerals are dissolved, which help to stain it with an intense turquoise.

When it rains the landscape changes completely in Chiapas: the waters are dyed in color chocolate, creating other landscapes. The rains drag sediments from the bottom, and stir up the beautiful turquoise colors of Chiapas. From February to July it rains very little in Chiapas, but we already know that the weather is going as it is, and more with the climatic changes.
