Commonly referred to as the Maldives of Mexico, most glampers are drawn to this area because of the renowned Laguna Bacalar. The striking blue color and clarity of the lagoon is partly due to the white limestone bottom, and boasts long docks that stretch out into the water. This glamping property offers easy access to the lagoon. Glampers are urged to make sustainable choices while visiting, such as using organic sunscreen and avoiding single-use plastic.

There is an abundance of outdoor recreation in the area, and nature enthusiasts will absolutely love the options. Sailing and kayaking adventures are popular and great ways to explore the beautiful lagoon and these are available as tour options or self-guided. At the property many different excursions are offered in the area, such as kayak tours to the mangrove estuary and lily pads in Punta Norte Bacalar. The estuary is 20 minutes paddling from the cabin and costs $15 per person, which includes kayak rental and a guide. The Kajak tour is three hours and guests will be taken through the mangrove channels of mirror waters upholstered in lily pads and abundant orchids and birds.

To know the region, a Chacchoben Tour is offered by the hosts, which includes a guide to ancient Mayan culture, a guided tour of archaeological sites, a Mayan village, and a walk through tropical garden, where guests will see many species of fruit, ending with a rich traditional lunch. This trip costs $25 per person and takes four hours.

The property also offers massage service or a romantic dinner served directly in the cabin. Prices vary depending on the amount of time or the menu.

Those seeking adventure and a bit of a thrill can head to Kan K’in Bacalar, just 15 minutes north of town. Here, glampers can soar across lush canopies as they enjoy a day of zip lining and exploring the jungle. From swaying in hammocks under the shade of a tree to admiring the marine life with snorkeling or scuba diving tour at Xul-Ha, glampers can enjoy relaxation or an action-packed getaway.
