Excursion to Bacalar: Boat Tour on the lagoon of 7 colors

A very special jewel in Mexico is the Lagoon of Seven Colors near Bacalar. It is actually a lake and was named for the many shades of blue that shimmer in the sunlight. The water of the lagoon is fed by underground cenotes. We will take a boat ride on the lagoon of Bacalar and visit various sights. Besides the cenotes and the bird island, we have the opportunity to swim in the shallows of the so-called pirate island. There you can refresh yourself and admire the intense turquoise water.

  • Boat trip on the lagoon: Named after the many shades of blue, it is called the lagoon of seven colors. The water feeds from underground cenotes. We will discover some of them during a boat trip. Refresh yourself with a swim in the fresh water and marvel at the intense turquoise water.
