What people are saying about Bacalar

The captain was very pleasant. Nice explanation and informal atmosphere. We were the only tourists, the boat was filled with employees from the restaurant at the meeting point. We just liked it! Beautiful route and 2 places to swim. We were first allowed to get something to eat and snack ourselves, so you can bring something yourself (not stated in the conditions). We offered the captain a tip, but he wouldn't take it. We saw sailboats around us that were having trouble sailing. Glad we had a motor boat. Enjoy flying over the water. 10/10!

OMG what an excellent day we had with Miguel the Captain. The lake is breathtaking, the trip is just long enough so you don't get burned or exhausted from swimming. The boat was small but comfortable, the places it covered were all interesting: shallow waters, deep cenotes all covered.

Excellent value for money, the guide was really great and took us to the lagoon then to 3 different cenotes and then to another uncrowded and beautiful place. great time

We booked the catamaran private trip with Jesus, it was great. He is really nice and professional ! We shared a really nice moment with him Thanks !

Superb experience with 2 top guides (David & Alex) who took us on a private tour of the lagoon. To do every day
