For some years now, the state has been harnessing large rivers, streams, and even small runoffs to provide water for crops and generating electrical power.

Today, dams help diversify the economy of many towns, allowing them to attract tourism instead of simply focusing on their traditional forms of commerce, agribusiness, and fishing activities.

Dams also offer the perfect setting for water sports, such as fishing black lobina in the Yosocuta Dam, or the Papaloapan boat race that crosses the Cerro de Oro and Miguel Aleman Dams, winding up at Tuxtepec at the mouth of the Tonto and Papaloapan rivers.

Delightful boat rides through these reservoirs are a wonderful way to enjoy the landscape and numerous small islands that dot the water.
