Enjoy a relaxing boat ride on one of the most beautiful lakes in Mexico, the famous Bacalar Lagoon. Cruise the mesmerizing lagoon of 7 Colors of Blue, and maybe even take a swim. A day to remember!

You'll meet your guide outside your Costa Maya cruise terminal and be driven to the lagoon and its famous 7 shades of blue. This freshwater lagoon gets its name from the various shades of blue, turquoise, and indigo changing throughout the day and caused by the sandy bottom and the various depths of the water. The lagoon is approximately 42 km long and 4 km wide at its widest. 

From a small pier, you'll board your comfortable boat (pontoon or covered skiff boat). Be on the lookout as your guide would point out flora and fauna that lives here. As you cruise the lagoon you'll see el Fuerte de San Felipe (the Fortress of San Felipe) built after the town was sacked by pirates in the 17th century; El Cenote Cocalitos is where you'll see the stromatolites, formations of prehistoric life that look like rocks covered with moss; El Cenote Esmeralda which is surrounded by beautiful houses and its crystal clear waters and depth allow some interesting visual effects; and El Cenote Negro or Cenote de La Bruja (the Witch's Cenote), named for a witch who lived on its shore. It's also so deep that the blue appears to be black. Otherwise known as Cenote Negro, which describes the dark color in contrast to the bright blue lagoon.

You'll also have the chance to see la Isla de los Pájaros (Bird Island), a sanctuary that is home to a variety of birds like parrots, owls, and cavalry hawks. You will have a short stop at the beautiful, shallow Canal de los Piratas (Pirates Channel) that connects the north to the Central American Mayans. Here they exchanged goods like food, exotic feathers, and wood used in ships. It's also an area with a high concentration of minerals making it ideal for skin exfoliation. 

At the end of your boat ride, you'll return to shore where you'll have a brief stop to use the facilities or buy food/snacks. Then, you'll board your transportation to return to your Costa Maya cruise terminal.

Not worth the time!
     2/5  (Visited on October 2022)
The lagoon was okay but not worth the 1.5 hour drive each way from the port. One of our tour guides did not speak any English and the other only spoke a little. They used Google Translate a few times in the beginning but then stopped. We had a Hispanic family in the boat with us and they were speaking to them most of the time in Spanish but then would only say about 2 sentences in English.
