This was an amazing tour. we got Diana as a tour guide and she was amazing. We made 2 stops to swim, drank some beers along the way, ate a snack, danced away with everyone on the boat. It was really "hype." Thank you for arranging GetYourGuide. Recommended to anyone.

The atmosphere on the boat was great. We had kind guides who told us some interesting things about the lake and the stops they made were long enough to take it all in. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great, but our captain made sure to mix up the order of our stops so we wouldn't get caught in the rain.

When in Bacalar one of the must do activities is a boat tour. If you want it to be fun, lively and a really good time, book your tour with these awesome folks. Loved hearing the educational bits about the lagoon and its Cenotes, meeting new people and swimming in the crystal blue waters. Isis & Daniel made it a REALLY great tour! So... All in all an amazing experience!!
