After 5 years we revisited this lovely resort part of Fiesta American Vacation Club. It has maintained the charm and excellent services. This is NOT a resort for anyone who expects night life. It is relatively small in comparison to other Mega Resorts, but quaint. The included activities are great including night journeys on the lake in a canoe on a lagoon with dinner on the shore at the end.
The emphasis of this resort is to connect with nature and yourself and not being distracted by Television screens and constant phone/internet connection. The latter is only available at the pool and main reception area.

My wife and I are mentally relaxed after our stay at Explorean Kohunlich. This is truly an all inclusive resort. Greatest worry was if we put enough sunscreen. What made this trip so wonderful was the staff! Starting from our waiter Isidro and his assistant Nuvia, which helped me plan a private suprise dinner for my wife in the middle of the jungle where all you could here is nature. Also our Guides were the best, Daniel for his tour of the Mayan jungle for earth day. Gamma for his stories of the pigmi Mayans that scared my wife. Armando, Francisco, Thomas and the rest of the guides that keeped us safe. The house keeping staff are like ninjas, I never seen them but I know they were there because the room was always clean. Last the Cheif and kitchen staff the food was finominal. The food was something you would eat a 5 star resort. This was not buffet style. The food was always fresh and tasty. I wish I could tell you more but I was sworn to secrecy. A few tips make sure you exchange peso at airport because the do not accept dollars. Also bug spray is needed in some of these activities. We used 98% deet.

My husband and I just returned from this Fiesta Americana property. It is a little in the jungle and is a place of relaxation and calm. The rooms are huge and set in the jungle and the common areas have a lovely restaurant, bar, lobby area, and pool.
The hotel is all inclusive, so the food, drinks, and activities are included. The food and bar were great but it is the activities that were exceptional. Canoeing on the Bacalar lagoon/lake, and a night canoe on a lake/wetland where you could see a lot of wildlife and, when it became dark, so clearly see the stars and constellations. Highly recommend.

All inclusive fees included awesome excursions to Bacalar Lagoon, night kayaking, and beautiful Mayan ruins. The guides really do care about the history of this place and are very knowledgeable of the plant and animal life.

Sadly we spent only two nights here during a Saga tour called “Treasures of the Yucatán, would liked to stayed longer. A lovely place to both relax and enjoy nature and to visit the nearby Mayan historical site.
