This is a stunning small resort on The Seven Color Lagoon. It is the only one in the over 42 mile length as the gov't has disallowed continued development. Therefor this is a very tranquil location; no motorized water vehicles of any sort. I visited here as part of a tour with Native Choice. No large tour buses could get... More

We visited Costa Maya on our cruise on Holland America, Ryndam. We booked a tour with The Native Choice and we are so glad that we did. We were with other travelers from other cruise ships but the group was small, about 12 travelers. The one hour comfortable drive past quickly as our tour guide, Rose, gave a narrative history...

A simply stunning place to stay. Well of the beaten track right on the lagoon 35km north of Bacalar. Beautiful Mayan cabins, well equipped and comfortable surrounded by jungle on three sides and the lagoon on the other. Spent 4 nights here over the New Year, just relaxing, with a little bit of kayaking, enjoying the peacefulness. It's about 4km... More

We were visiting Costa Maya on a cruise stop, and our excursion included a visit to the Mayan ruins, followed by an unexpected visit to the Bacalar Lagoon resort. Although we only stayed there for the afternoon, it was just wonderful. We were fed an excellent Mexican lunch, with as many Piña Coladas and/or margaritas as we wanted! We had... More

What a secluded piece of tranquility. After a short drive through the jungle on a bumpy road is paradise. Perfect for a lazy day in the hammock reading a book while the water laps gently at your feet, just what the doctor ordered for weary travellers. The individual cabanas are gorgeous and the setting is beautiful. The owner made us... More

Let me start the review by just expressing how pleased we were with every detail of our stay at Bacalar Lagoon Resort! From the room, the staff, the location, the local towns, the food, the views, and the water I can't not adequately state in words how exceptional the trip was! The remoteness of the resort was so peaceful and... More

The beauty of this place is the peace and the quiet. This is the newest resort at the northern end of Laguna Bacalar with individual bungalows that are new and very clean. The food was excellent with lots of very fresh fruits and vegetables and reasonably priced. Lots of lounge chairs outside to soak up the sun or hide in... More

We stopped here as part of a Native Choice Tour (Chacchoben Extreme Tour) and we felt so lucky to find ourselves here! It felt like an oasis - no one else was around for miles! We had a delicious lunch and then enjoyed swimming and kayaking in the lagoon, which was beautiful. We all wanted to stay as long as... More

We came to this little resort nestled out of the way. It was truly a splash of beauty and simple elegance hidden away. We did not stay here, but came with the second portion of an excursion. So thankful we did. The staff was very accommodating to our every need. The food was tasty and the resort was as clean... More
