“The first glimpse of Laguna Bacalar felt like a mirage, a flash of luminous turquoise through a haze of trees. Twenty-six miles long and just over a mile wide, the “Lake of Seven Colors” snakes through the jungle, carrying tales of Mayan origins and pirate attacks.”
New York Times, Dec 24 2019
Bacalar was founded by the Mayas in 415 a.C. with the name of Sian Ka’an Bakhalal, translated ‘where the sky is born’ and ‘surrounded by reeds’.

Spanish conquistadores arrived in the middle of the 16th Century and Bacalar became a regular target for English pirates -who would enter the lagoon via a canal known actually as Pirates Canal- and sacked the town in the middle of the 17th Century. San Felipe Fort was built in 1733 as a response to the constant attacks. These fortress offers impressive views of the lagoon and will transport you back to an age where pirates were a constant threat to the region.

In 2006 Bacalar was declared a Pueblo Mágico -Magic Town- and since then it’s been slowly growing attracting a very distinctive crowd. If you are looking for a different -slow pace- kind of travel and you’d like to dwell in the Yucatan Peninsula’s culture, you’ve found your spot.
