In this paper we propose a computational method to simulate the evolution of a coastal region included its aquifer in the Tabasco, Mexico, salt marshes. As the evolution due to intense deforestation is well known and documented our model extrapolates the future evolution taking in consideration several scenarios, the first one is the actual use of the land with the natural rise of the level of Gulf of Mexico other is introducing comercial species of trees with a high wtaer consumption ratio, the third scenario is restoring, following a very well designed strategies the original environment. Our model takes in consideration the surface and subsurface hydrology and has been calibrated with the historical data.
