Lake Bacalar

With a length of 30 miles, Lake Bacalar (or Laguna Bacalar) is the largest lake of the Yucatán peninsula. Also called lake of seven colors, it is a spectacular landmark for its clear azure water, fed by groundwater emerging from "cenotes," or natural sinkholes. The landmark is within a 60-mile distance from Mahahual. There are restaurants near to the shore, and sports activities such as kayaking and windsurfing are available, too.

Do & See

Costa Maya is an up and coming tourist region that has something to offer to all age groups. Lesser-known Maya ruins such as Chacchoben and Kohunlich are sure to amaze with their amazing history and architecture, and natural wonders like Banco Chinchorro are a bucket list item for all sea lovers. If it's some quiet time by the beach you are after, the Malecón (boardwalk) in Mahahual will likely cater to all your needs.
