The lagoon extends quietly and picturesquely next to the village of Bacalar as a perfect backdrop for adventure and nature lovers. Bacalar has a rich history to tell; it was the setting of multiple clashes between Mayans and Spaniards, only to later fall victim to English, French and Dutch pirates. 

RIDE ON THE LAGOON
The lagoon is the village’s main attraction. It is referred to as the Lagoon of the Seven Colors due to the contrasts in its ground soils, its varying depths and intensity with which it absorbs the sun’s rays, all of which cause its waters to reflect seven different shades of blue.
Enjoy the incomparable landscape by boat, kayak, sailboat or jet ski. Admire the contrast of the lush vegetation surrounding the waters and let yourself be lulled by the singing of the birds, making this a magical experience.

BECOME A PIRATE
Venture to navigate the rapids flowing into the Hondo River or into the estuary of Chac, just as the pirates did in their time. 

REVITALIZE YOUR BODY AND SOUL IN THE LAGOON
Find in Bacalar an ideal place for relaxation, as the energy it transmits fills you with an inexplicable sense of peace and tranquility. Let the elements of nature infuse you with their energy, helping your body submerge in this healing experience.
