Laguna de los siete colores

Bacalar or Laguna de los Siete Colores, is a lagoon located in the state of Quintana Roo, very close to Chetumal, the state capital. Its name comes from the Mayan Bakhalal, which means "near or surrounded by reeds." 

Cenote Azul

Located at the entrance of Bacalar (coming from Chetumal) and on the side of the road. This cenote has an approximate diameter of 200 meters and a depth of 90 meters, you can enjoy its beautiful blue color.
It is characterized by being separated from the lagoon but at the same time part of it, due to the veins of water that connect them to the two, which is why it acquires the splendid blue color characteristic of the lagoon of the seven colors.
It is a site that offers the mystical beauty of the great cenotes that our Bacalar lagoon has, its shape resembles a small lake, surrounded by jungle vegetation, as around its shores of the cenote we can see branches coming out of the subsoil, tree roots, and mangroves that this cenote has. This gives you a little more mystery and an urge to dive into these deep waters to investigate a bit more.

Fuerte de San Felipe

Used in ancient times to defend the area, there is the Museum of Piracy where all the history of the town and its relationship with pirates is concentrated. It receives its name from Andrés Quintana Roo and a prominent figure in the independence of Mexico. The castle was ordered to be built in 1725 by Antonio de Figueroa y Silva, governor of Yucatán, as a defensive fort for the preservation of the state against the push of the English colonizers. It was completed in 1733. It was designed by the Italian Juan Podio. It represents the conjunction of the austere with the functional, the meeting of sobriety and elegance. Today it is the Museum of Piracy, founded in 1965 and re-opened in 1983.
