The lagoon offers a vast opportunity to explore. Enjoy the spectacular views, swim along it’s shore, sail in it’s depths or paddle board the surface, all of these options will let you explore what Bacalar Lagoon is all about. All of our suggestions are promoting a sustainable approach to the lagoon.
Cenote Azul is round-shaped and a dense jungle separates Cenote Azul from the rest of Bacalar Lagoon. Unlike this last one, that’s mostly shallow and turquoise colored, Cenote Azul is over 90 meters deep and as a result, it has a dark blue shade to its water.
The water at Cenote Azul is so clear that visitors can see the nearby tree roots underwater that span in all directions which makes it attractive for snorkeling.
Nowadays the Fort is open as a museum containing archeological mayan pieces, colonial time objects, antique weapons and ammunitions and more.
If you’d like to immerse yourself in Bacalar’s unique local culture and vibe, the local park is the place to be. Walk around it, try a marquesita (traditional cheese and chocolate stuffed crepe) or corn on a stick and enjoy the sunset as the birds make a stunning (and noisy!) show every afternoon.
