Two hours south of Tulum awaits the 2nd largest lake in all of Mexico. Sailing on Bacalar Lagoon takes you back to the time of the pirates that inhabited these parts. It also takes you back to a vibe that may have been more like the Tulum of 20 years ago.

This sailing experience gives you the perfect blend of tranquility and adventure. In this half day tour you'll sail in a small, intimate group of no more than seven, creating a relaxed, social atmosphere where new friendships bloom. Picture yourself sipping cold beers and munching on fresh guacamole while sailing around the vibrant Isla de Los Pájaros, a hotspot for migratory birds.

You'll drift above awe-inspiring underwater cenotes and get up close with ancient stromatolites, some of the world's oldest living fossils. All this makes it an ideal, budget-friendly choice for families or solo travelers.

This is the perfect escape for those looking to unwind away from the buzz of Cancun or Tulum. Come explore the "Lake of Seven Colors" and make memories that'll last a lifetime
