Full description
Discover sights like the Stromatolite Barrier and the Bird Island while sampling inclusive snacks and drinks. Begin at the famous Casa China, perhaps taking a panoramic photo from the observatory tower before boarding the ship. Settle in as your boat takes you through the Cenote Esmeralda. This is the largest cenote in Bacalar, more than 500 meters in diameter and around 70 meters deep. Stop for a swim at the famous Pirate Canal and learn about the history of Bacalar along with its flora and fauna. Experience a relaxing boat journey, taking advantage of the inclusive drinks and snacks provided on board. After reaching a lagoon, jump into the crystal clear turquoise waters, and enjoy a swim surrounded by virgin vegetation. Back on board, see the Stromatolite Barrier, home to the oldest organism on the planet. You boat will also stop at a bird sanctuary, where you can admire different species of local and migratory birds.

We had a pleasant visit, the guide was very nice, too bad we didn't pay attention to the type of boat in the boat: we were in a boat splashed by the waves, and at this time of year the wind chilled and froze us a bit (if we had been warned we wouldn't have put our bags on the deck.) But overall it was beautiful scenery, a tour led by Carlos, enjoyable and joyful.

Enthusiastic guide Spanish and English only as soon as we left the boat he no longer had an eye for us. Calling during the way back that was a pity

Very good afternoon. Swimming and drinks on the agenda! We discover places in the lagoon that are uniquely accessible by boat. That's wonderful
