Bacalar, in Mayan, Bakhalal, meaning “near or surrounded by reeds”, is known for its seven-colored lagoon, which you will experience on this boat tour. Sailing in Bacalar on these boats is a great alternative to motorboats since they do not pollute the water, helping to preserve the place’s natural beauty.

You will begin this approximately 4-hour excursion by visiting the pirates’ channel, where you will have the opportunity to swim and snorkel. For hundreds of years, it has been the territory of travelers and treasure hunters. It is said that the Mayas built this channel for commercial purposes and to connect the south’s people with those of the north. As a result, pirate attacks became very frequent, hence the name given to it. You will continue navigating to the “Cenote de la Bruja”, also called “black cenote”, here you can dive into its waters and enjoy the colorful spectacle of the different depths. Finally, you will visit the Isla de Los Pájaros, a place locally declared as a sanctuary, where you can do bird watching and enjoy the different shades of blue of the magical lagoon of Bacalar.

Enjoy sailing in Bacalar!
