Bacalar Lagoon is a unique, crystal-clear freshwater lake with all kinds of hues of blue – from dark turquoise to sandy-clear blue, similar to those you can find in the Maldives. Some even call this lagoon the “Maldives of Mexico”.

You can swim, snorkel, kayak, and paddleboard in the lagoon, but we recommend taking a boat tour to truly appreciate the beauty of this place by exploring its various channels and also learning about its history and ecology. Check out our vetted recommendations in the links section.
