Bacalar

Un Pueblo Mágico

The Pueblo Mágico, or “Magic Town”, of Bacalar lies at the Southern Tip of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. The town is a short 30 minute ride to the Northern border of Belize in which the area is surrounded with a rich history. Not only is Bacalar fully immersed in culture, it offers some stunning views

Bacalar is most famous for its picturesque fresh water lagoon, “La Laguna de Los Siete Colores”, or Lagoon of seven colors

The best way to enjoy and explore these bright and vibrant blue waters is by kayaking

A journey through the “Pirates Canal” is a must

It is said that this is the canal where Pirates were seen entering the lagoon before battling with the Spanish whom controlled the town at the time

Speaking of the canal, it is the top tourist destination of Bacalar

Pirates cannot be talked about in Bacalar without mentioning the Spanish. This fort was built to keep the Pirates away from causing chaos in the town

Another popular spot in Bacalar is Cenote Azul. This cenote is one of the deepest in the entire Peninsula and is the perfect spot to go for a swim or some diving

While Bacalar is a great destination to explore and learn about some unique history, it is also a superb place to relax
