    Missed the tour of the lagoon, with a cost of 250 pesos and a duration of 3 hours approximately, vas watching the changes hues while advancing the boat. Channel pirates expectacular, to exfoliate our body!

    I recommend it widely. It is a magical place. It is very close to Oasis Bacalar, just a block from the lagoon. It is worthwhile to boat ride

    I was literally speechless in front of this corner of paradise. Really, one of the most ' beautiful ever seen in the world. Everything here refers to peace and relaxation. The lagoon is amazing with colors never seen and it is hard to think that it is fresh water, so the bathroom is even more enjoyable!! We UNFORTUNATELY only spent one day here, as part of a tour. In my opinion we should make at least one extra day to enjoy the relaxation guaranteed. NOT TO BE MISSED.
