Welcome to Bacalar

On the shores of Bacalar Lagoon, the largest in the state lies the magical town of Bacalar. Its life is spent among memories of Mayan encounters with pirates, and the Mayan communities around it, specializing in wood carving, embroidery, and hammock weaving. The surrounding archaeological sites, such as Chacchoben, are rich in history and natural wonders. People stroll by San Felipe Fort and stop, mesmerized, in front of the lagoon; some sit on the docks ready to discover what lies at the bottom of this great aquatic labyrinth; others embark to get closer to its mangroves and there are those who surely see it better from above.

What to Love

  • The paradisiacal view of the crystal clear water.
  • Cenotes of transparent waters are suitable for swimming and snorkeling.
  • A small town filled with history and culture.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Bacalar presents delectable foodie havens like El Manatí, Mediterranean kitchen Finisterre, and the fresh Japanese style of Nao Sushi. Settle in at the Mi Burrito outdoor bar and bask in the Caribbean sunshine while eating gourmet burritos. In Bacalar San Joaquin's Patron Saint's Day is held in August with religious events, boat and jet ski races in the beautiful lagoon.

Things to Do

The crystalline waters and spectacular blue-shaded lagoon at Rapidos Bacalar dazzle even the most well-traveled sophisticate, and the area’s living rocks are a stunning sight to behold. Connecting the Hondo River with the Bacalar Lagoon is the notorious Canal de los Piratas, the body of water that once attracted real-life pirates up and down the channel – although it is perhaps equally famed for its azure shades and fountain-of-youth rejuvenating properties. If swimming in cenotes is your thing, don't forget to visit Cocalitos where you can also appreciate the stromatolites. Continue with the Black Cenote, located inside the Seven Colors Lagoon, which is the deepest in Bacalar with 90 meters in the shape of a crescent. Finally, Cenote Azul and Cenote Esmeralda will captivate you with their beauty.


Bacalar offers a range of different public schools from primary levels all the way up to highschool.
