  • Great place to explore. Crystal clear water and white beaches that make you forget about being in a lagoon.

  • No doubt a very nice place, starting with an economic tour of 7 colors lagoon, visit the pirates Canal, linking the lagoon and the Río hondo, here can enjoy a pleasant bath in sulphurous waters! You also know the cenotes and the Guide gives you a small portrait of the city, but nothing like eating some seafood and a beer while watching the lagoon.

  • When you see the wallpaper of windows and wondering where are those sites so perfect, they should tell you that Bacalar is one of those sites. I would go to stay months there.
