La Playita is a project born in 2012 in view of a big need in Bacalar: a place to eat, swim and spend the day in a great atmosphere, better music, a few good hammocks and an unbeatable turquoise view. Located on the shore of the seven colors lagoon, La Playita offers a latin fusion menu. Prime raw material, a golden team and lots of attitude makes our space an undefeated favorite in Bacalar. Surrounded by a dense nature, a vast tropical garden, an inmense rubber tree and lots of regional colors, La Playita is a place that you'll take with you and won't easily forget. Come and see it for yourself. La Playita is Bacalar.

Overrated It’s a nice location directly on the water. Friendly staff, but food is only average regarding value for money.

Amazing view! So relaxing! Great food!! Prices not too bad. A must if you are in Bacalar. There’s a dock and it’s pretty shallow so you can either swim, sunbathe or come in from kayaking and leave your kayak there.

Loved the ambience, the food, and the views. Everything was of good quality. The service did take long, but in the meantime, you get to enjoy the beautiful lake.
