Description
Searching for a place on the beautiful lagoon in Bacalar? Look no further! The Yak Lake House is right on the water with an amazing view that will make you never want to leave. Come spend some time in paradise! More We offer comfortable accommodation in both private rooms and shared dorms, all with private bathrooms. Each room has A/C and powerful fans to keep you cool at night. We have a communal kitchen and breakfast is included for all of our guests. Our facilities include a private dock that stretches out into the lagoon with a breathtaking view of the sunrise and we are located right across the lagoon from the infamous Pirate Cove! For those who want to explore the lagoon, be sure to check out our paddleboard and sailing tours to the Pirate’s Cove, cenotes, and more (or take the kayak out on your own, if you’re feeling ambitious)! You’re guaranteed to leave The Yak Lake House with new friends and fond memories, so come be a part of The Yak Family! Less
