Taking a Holiday at Lake Bacalar, Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

A holiday at the beach in Lake Bacalar, located in Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, promises a unique and unforgettable experience. This freshwater lake, also known as the "Lake of Seven Colors," is famous for its crystal-clear water and stunning shades of blue. The area offers a wide range of activities and accommodations to suit all tastes and budgets.

Beach Type

The beaches at Lake Bacalar are quite different from the typical oceanfront beaches found along the Riviera Maya. Instead of powdery white sand, you'll find a mixture of coarse sand and small pebbles. The water is calm and shallow near the shore, making it perfect for swimming and wading. While there aren't any coral reefs in the lake, there are still plenty of opportunities for snorkeling and diving around natural formations like cenotes (underwater sinkholes) and stromatolites (ancient rock formations).

  • Swimming: The crystal-clear water with its various shades of blue makes swimming in Lake Bacalar a truly magical experience.
  • Kayaking or Paddleboarding: Explore the lake's unique beauty by paddling through its tranquil waters on a kayak or stand-up paddleboard.
  • Sailing: Rent a sailboat or take sailing lessons to glide across the lake while enjoying breathtaking views.
  • Snorkeling or Diving: Discover cenotes and ancient stromatolites beneath Lake Bacalar's surface by snorkeling or diving.
  • Bird Watching: The surrounding jungle provides excellent bird-watching opportunities with over 200 species inhabiting the area.

  2. Casa Bakal – A boutique hotel with a private dock, paddleboards, kayaks, and bicycle rentals.
  3. Hotel Aires Bacalar – A charming hotel with a peaceful atmosphere and stunning lake views.

Areas to Stay In

  • Bacalar Town: The town offers a variety of accommodations, restaurants, and shops within walking distance. It's also a convenient base for exploring the surrounding attractions.
  • Northern Shores: The northern shores of the lake are quieter and more secluded, perfect for those seeking tranquility and relaxation.
  • Southern Shores: The southern shores boast beautiful beaches and lush vegetation. They're ideal for nature lovers and those looking for more privacy.
