Full description
Discover sights like the Stromatolite Barrier and the Bird Island while sampling inclusive snacks and drinks. Begin at the famous Casa China, perhaps taking a panoramic photo from the observatory tower before boarding the ship. Settle in as your boat takes you through the Cenote Esmeralda. This is the largest cenote in Bacalar, more than 500 meters in diameter and around 70 meters deep. Experience a relaxing boat journey south, taking advantage of the inclusive drinks and snacks provided on board. After reaching a lagoon, jump into the crystal clear turquoise waters, and enjoy a swim surrounded by virgin vegetation. Back on board, see the Stromatolite Barrier, home to the oldest organism on the planet. You boat will also stop at a bird sanctuary, where you can admire different species of local and migratory birds.

We had a pleasant visit, the guide was very nice, too bad we didn't pay attention to the type of boat in the boat: we were in a boat splashed by the waves, and at this time of year the wind chilled and froze us a bit (if we had been warned we wouldn't have put our bags on the deck.) But overall it was beautiful scenery, a tour led by Carlos, enjoyable and joyful.

Boat trip on the lagoon, guide does not speak French but is extremely kind.

Save the money and rent a kayak and drive around yourself, you have 1000x more of it. Of the three hours, we started 20 minutes later, actually rode for about 1 hour, the rest of the time we stood around and could get into the water. You can do that with a kayak too. Here we come to the point why it is 2 stars, you could rent a kayak for free afterwards. That was a lot more fun. The snacks on the boat were sliced pineapple with carrot and paprika powder in a box together. Completely unusable. The drinks were corona beer and juices, that was good. The boat itself kept turning off for whatever reason. You couldn't drive fast with it either. We really looked at the pirate channel and the cenotes in the lagoon. But you don't see anything special there. The trip was worth €15 at most and only because the drinks were free. Better rent a kayak!
