Mexican Caribbean’s Lagoons
A hidden treasure in the southern tropical Mexican Caribbean is the lagoon system formed by the lagoons of Bacalar, Guerrero, Milagros y Calderitas, united and navigable from the mouth of the Rio Hondo, until the end of the lagoon of Buenavista, rising from Bahía de Chetumal and crossing the neighboring Rio Huay Pix. That, without mention the lagoon of Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in the north, next to Tulum.
Lagoons are shallow and crystal clear waters, where you can enjoy water sports and swim peacefully. They are surrounded by lush vegetation and immersed in a fascinating biodiversity of flora and fauna. Calderitas and Milagros are just minutes from Chetumal and offer the opportunity to spend time relaxing and enjoying the local gastronomic delicatessens; eating fresh seafood and fish under a palapa on board the placid lagoon water.
Local fishermen willingly put themselves at service to offer trips and accompany you to explore the lagoon and the Bay of Chetumal, taking you to discover virgin places of unbelievable beauty.
Bacalar is undoubtedly the gem of the southern lagoon system for its peculiar characteristic: the sun’s reflection in the different areas of the lagoon, due to varying depths and mineral composition, give enchanted observers a view of an extraordinary range of blue hues. For this, it is know as the Lagoon of Seven Colors.
