Bacalar, Quintana Roo
When it comes to Quintana Roo, probably the first thing that pops into your mind is the white sand and wonderful blue waves. However, few people know that the Lagoon of Seven Colors is the core of Bacalar, not the beaches.
This huge white lagoon which captured the hearts of many visitors for its varied shades of blue is a great place for swimming, snorkeling, and, of course, scuba diving. So those who will have the courage to go deep enough will soon discover the magical underwater caves that are connected to the cenotes (water formations), such as Blue Cenote, which is the reason behind the lagoon’s magical colors.
You can easily stay in any of the hotels surrounding the lagoon, and if you’re an adventurous soul, there are many campsites. The town’s downtown is as out of fashion as you can imagine (which makes it even more charming), with streets where you can walk with your family and friends, and small but interesting restaurants.
