Bacalar Lagoon is famous for the gorgeous colors of its water. When it’s sunny, the water lights up in countless shades of blue, from the palest turquoise to the deepest indigo. It’s a stunning sight and is what makes so many people visit this southern part of the Yucatan Peninsula.
The best way to enjoy Bacalar Lagoon is on the water. The lagoon is home to a huge number of water-based activities. These include boat trips, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, and good old-fashioned swimming. The lake is vast - over 25 miles long - so you can always find a quiet section to enjoy. And there’s also a charming town on the lakefront - also called Bacalar - where you can enjoy a cosmopolitan selection of restaurants and bars.
