Bacalar is a small town with only 9,000 residents close to Riviera Maya, and almost on the border with Belize.
This town’s main attraction is Bacalar Lagoon, also known as the Lake of Seven Colours. According to legend, Bacalar Lagoon was formed when seven natural wells overflowed and converged, which would explain the many tones of blue of its water.
The lagoon is ideal for exploring in a catamaran or canoe. You can see more of the incredible landscape and discover this paradise just a few kilometres from Riviera Maya.
As you go round the lagoon you can stop off and walk along some of the paths starting at its shores. You might even spot some of the local birds, such as pelicans, toucans, eagles and parrots.
You can also choose from a wide variety of water sports, including diving, snorkelling or water-skiing.
Bacalar is certainly an incredible natural area. No wonder they call it a magical town!
