Travel to Bacalar: Join your guide on a 1.5-hour drive on an air-conditioned transport to the south of the country, leaving the green Mexican jungle behind on your way to Bacalar.
Boat Ride at Bacalar Lagoon: Once there, you’ll embark on a two-hour boat ride at Bacalar Lagoon, also known as the Lagoon of Seven Colors. The lagoon is home to what’s believed to be the Earth’s oldest life form—stromatolites. You may also be able to appreciate some local and migratory birds, such as the snail eagle, Tòh, a hummingbird, or even an American stork during your ride.
Swimming & Free Time: Cruise along a combination of cenotes such as El Cenote Negro and stop at the famous Emerald Cenote for a quick dip in its clear waters. You’ll also get to know El Canal de los Piratas, the channel where real pirates of the Caribbean used to arrive from the ocean to steal local precious wood almost 400 years ago.
Mexican Lunch: After navigating through the creeks and springs of this natural body of water, you'll stop to indulge in freshly prepared Mexican lunch.
