Situated near the border of Belize, Bacalar is perfect for travelers seeking respite. A tropical retreat, Bacalar’s greatest allure is the dazzling blue waters of the Bacalar Lagoon, also known as the Lagoon of Seven Colors. You can’t help but be enticed by the serene vibe of this town. Furthermore, its unique location by the borders of Belize and Mexico provides for an interesting culinary scene. Visitors should try out xpelón tamales (a form of tamales made with beans), mucbil pollo (another kind of tamales specially made for the Day of the Dead), and tikinxic (a fish stew mixed with annatto paste).

Want to check out some historic structures? Visit the ancient fort of Fuerte de San Felipe for interesting insights into the region’s history. Interested in a diving adventure? Head to Cenote Azul, where you’ll find underwater caves to explore! If you’re looking for something even more thrilling, why not try navigating the Bacalar Rapids? Fast currents form in the narrow strait that connects Bacalar Lagoon and Xul-Ha Lagoon, and even if you don’t want to brave the waves, the brilliant turquoise-colored waters are surely a sight to see. According to the BBC, the lagoon is also home to stromatolites, one of the oldest forms of life, and visitors are cautioned against damaging these organisms. You can always head to the nearby city of Chetumal for a fun day out, and the city has Airbnb vacation rentals that could come in handy.
