About What SUP Bacalar
Every morning we do our sunrise SUP tour. Around this time of the day, the lagoon is so calm and flat, where you can easily stand up on a board and learn with one of our professional instructors how to paddle across the water to some of the most beautiful spots ever seen in the lagoon. (You don't need to have any previous experience) At all times our experienced guides are there to help you improve your technique and to get the best photos for you. We bring fruit, water for the tour and snorkeling equipment to explore the lagoon together. At the end of the tour a great breakfast waits for us.
