Villas Ecotucan has a wonderful dock looking out over gorgeous Lake Bacalar. They allow camping (for $6/night!) but also have neat little casitas (detached cabins with thatched roofs). The birding here was quite good and the amenities would be perfect for someone wishing to have a nature-based experience on the Yucatan. The staff and owner were wonderful and prepared a wonderful chicken curry for us when we were there. My wife said that the curry was the best meal we had on the trip! The entire property is picture perfect and lush with foliage. It is within 1 hour drive of Chacchobben to the north and Kohunlich to the south- great launching point for seeing those southern Yucatan Mayan ruins. FYI- you will need a car to get there and to get around.
