Go Off the Beaten Path at Laguna de Bacalar, the Lake of Seven Colors

Discover the deep history and natural beauty of Mayan Mexico when you road trip to Laguna de Bacalar, a brilliantly colored lagoon in the Costa Maya. Seldom visited by tourists, this unique region south of Tulum feels totally different than the Riviera Maya. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and watch as the landscape changes. See women in traditional Mayan dress selling sweets and cooked meats by the side of the road. Villages get smaller and the energy slows down as you travel towards Laguna Bacalar.

Known as the "Lake of the Seven Colors" by the Ancient Maya, this lagoon flaunts spectacular shades of blue, aquamarine, and turquoise that are absolutely breathtaking on a sunny day - no filter needed. Go swimming, snorkeling, diving, sailing, and windsurfing in the warm waters. Nearby you can check out hidden Mayan ruins, visit a restored Spanish fort, and connect with the authentic local culture of the Costa Maya. Get off the beaten path and see a side of Mexico that most people don't.
