Do it- the catamaran trip was great, especially the jump from the tree into the cenote! The hostel is great, people friendly and super helpful- and the laguna bacalar is a piece of paradise- it feels like out of this world.

Magic is whimsical with lights in all the trees, a small path through a garden, all sitting on the warm clear Lago Bacalar. The huts are tropical basic, ventilation blinds, mosquito nets, and fans. The bunks were clean but the 2 kitchens could use a bit more upkeep (granted, one is outside so no high expectations). Overall a great place... More

Amazing place, just amazing! Best services rooms aren't bad and the access to the lake is really beautiful and chilled! Ask for Daniel and his amazing tours! If you are in bacalar you must stay in Magic Hostel

The staff was friendly and helpful. Kayaking was fun, the lagoon and private dock is beautiful. The private room was nice, and everything was kept clean. I will go back again. Breakfast was good as well! The town was quiet which was nice and the Fuerte was a neat place to walk through.

We had made a booking via hostel bookers and when we arrived to magic bacalar they knew nothing about it. Although that would have normally not been a problem, they kept asking us if we were at the wrong hostel and it took them way too long to figure the situation out. Next we realized that the originally booked 6-bed... More

Magic Bacalar is absolutely beautiful with its very own private pier for guests to use. 10 minute walk into town which was very handy. The breakfast is one of the best we have had on our trip!! We stayed in the double room which we personally thought was nice but very over priced compared to other places we have stayed.... More

We stayed with our two kids in a tent and it was awesome, the tent was super well equipped with good fresh smell linen and very comfortable mattresses (almost better than a regular bed mattress). The location is wonderful, few steps from the lagoon. They have a private pier on the lagoon and it is so relaxing to sit there... More

What a great time I had there! You can notice that the owners take good care of it and pay attention to design and details that fit the place to the environment around. The private pier on the lagoon is so awesome! I stayed there all day long and I met great people there! We had a night bath at... More

Very beautiful hostel/cabanas, with a private beach. Rooms are very clean and beds are new and comfortable. Toilets and showers are very clean too. Very friendly owners that makes you feel like at home. Highly recommended!
