Lago Catemaco is the third largest natural freshwater lake in Mexico; it is located in the state of Veracruz. In Lago Catemaco there are two larger and over ten smaller and very small islands. Macaques, whose species are native to Thailand, live on Isla de los Monos today. We visited the small island by boat and were able to observe and take pictures of the macaques from the lake.
