Aqua-Terra Firma-Cuisine

20 Mar

Visitors think that three to five days is about right for a trip to Laguna Bacalar Mexico. Of course USers never have adequate vacation, so they exhaust themselves trying to relax and do it all. There is a British couple and their three children renting next door for two months. Now that’s a vacation!


Topping a to-do list is all things water. Swimming is obvious, but kayaking, boating (motor and sail), stand-up paddle and wind surfing are readily available. There is also a must visit to Cenote Azul, a unique swimming experience.


Cenote Azul also provides a cuisine destination.


Sunrise Kayaking


If water sports are not your favorite, maybe land activities such as climbing pyramids (with monkey viewing) bird watching, visiting a museum in a genuine pirate fort or a walking tour of small town Mexico will interest you.

Let us not forget activities of the culinary sort.

Eating at Hotel Laguna, best view in town.

The most important activity by far is not an activity at all, it’s spending serious time DOING NOTHING. Whether it’s kicking back on our roof, sunning on the dock or taking a nap in the hammock, a trip to Bacalar must include time to listen to the quiet and enjoy the breeze.

So you see, a visit to Bacalar can not possibly fit into 3-5 days. And this isn’t ALL of it. Please share the blog with friends on Facebook and as always, your comments are appreciated. DOS TORTAS

    Having recently visited Bacalar,let me relate our experience when we ate at one of the nicer seafood restaurants in town, located on the waters edge. There were the 4 of us, we ordered 6 entrees and alcohol. Food was awesome. Total bill: $55 US.

      That’s the OTHER piece of visiting Bacalar, I neglected to mention, it’s completely reasonable even cheap! Thanks Laird.

    This is certainly persuasive for a vacation in Bacalar. The previous post with pix of your new house was amazing. Love love the design and colors and decor. -alicia
