Wow, this is a great inland village in the heart of the Costa Maya. Bacalar lagoon is known as the lagoon of 7 colors. The blues in the lake make it look like there are seven shades of blue in the water. Bacalar is a quiet village that has a rich history, the San Felipe fort and lots of sustainable activities. Bacalar is a little gem, a well-kept secret and a chill place for you to hang out.

Check out more information on Bacalar, where it is located, what vacation activities there are and tips on how to enjoy the area. The Costa Maya south of the Riviera Maya is a cool getaway for adventurers, historians and those looking for something a bit different.
