Your tour begins in an air conditioned transport vehicle from Playa Del Carmen. Once on board you will start your trek 4 hours south of Playa Del Carmen to the magical city of Bacalar. Upon arrival you will experience a multitude of amazing activities starting with a 2 hour boat trip out onto the lake. During your boat tour your guide will bring you to visit an island on the lake, a couple of cenotes, as well as the “Canal de los Piratas”. This was a canal used historically by pirates. It was used to bring their boats to paradise and safety via the one single opening to the Caribbean Sea through a very long series of Mangrove Channels. You will also visit an old fort that was built to protect that very same channel from unwanted intruders.
You will wrap up your day with a nice lunch, and one final stop to a beautiful cenote before heading back to your hotel.
