  • Great place to hang out and swim fresh water when your a little sick of swimming salt. Food was ok. Drinks were small. Staff was polite. A great little hidden location.
  • One of the most beautiful places to hang out with your friends or family, the waters are so clear, it looks like Caribbean beach but with sweet water
  • Beautiful lake with incredibile clear water. Unfortunatly is discovered by the mas tourism but you can find some quite spots if you away from the town. Best way to explor Laguna Bacalar is by kayak.
  • Great place locals call it de 7 color lake
  • Our three favorite spots for lagoon access (We're a family of two adults and one nine year old): Los Aluxes, Los Rapidos, and Kai pez restauarnt. Great days at all spots.
