BACALAR

Bacalar, on the gorgeous Lagoon of Seven Colours, is approximately 1 hour from Mahahual, south on highway 307, near Chetumal, Itīs original name, Bak Hakal, means Place Surrounded by Canes.

History
In 1545, the Spanish settled here but by 1652, it was destroyed and abandoned. Then by 1725, it was reestablished to protect the area from British pirates. In 1729, Fort San Felipe was constructed to defend the town. During the Caste War, the Maya captured Bacalar and today, there is still a strong presence of Maya living here.

Attractions: The fresh water laguna is very inviting for swimming and kayaking.

The Fort hosts a small museum. Closed Mondays.

Bacalar has the closest ATM to Mahahual.!!







CENOTE AZUL

Just south of Bacalar is Cenote Azul, the largest of thousands of deep fresh water sink holes found in the Yucatan. A great place to swim and ponder the possible Mayan sacrifices at itīs 300ī depth. Enjoy a fish lunch at the restaurant perched above the cenote.
