  • That's really hidden gem of Mexico. It is not so crowdy, maybe cause its kinda far from tourist places. Much better then Tulum! And even more cheaper! The Lagoon is so, so so amazing!!! The colour is unbelievable. Also the Lagoon is not deep at all so you can swim as you want.
  • Bacalar Lagoon is as breathtaking in real life as it is in pictures. I have a feeling it’s going to explode in tourism soon, so go before it does!
