About Bacalar Magical Town
Bacalar is a Magical Town of the State of Quintana Roo. Of Mayan origins, this community is outlined before the gaze of the tourist as a perfect place for rest and relaxation. Comfortable palapas and hammocks await us there, but also challenging jungles and excellent areas to practice water sports.
Bacalar comes from the Mayan Bakhalal which means “Near or surrounded by reeds”.
It is a population of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, located in the south of its territory about 35 km north of the capital, Chetumal. The climate is hot sub-humid with an average annual temperature of 26°C.
Bacalar is a Magical Town that stands out for its generous offer of places of interest for national and foreign visitors. One of its main attractions is the large lagoon of the same name that extends 50 kilometers long and two wide.
Factors such as the soils of its seabed, the different depths of the water and the varied intensity of the sun’s rays, cause the amazing diversity of blue tones of its lagoon.
With crystal clear waters, white sand, with parrots, macaws and fish filling the environment with colors and elements to discover such as cenotes and an abandoned ship, Bacalar is one of the best vacation options on the Mexican coast.
