Bacalar is a town that in the last 6 years has received more people than ever. There is no doubt that it is an emerging destination that captures the gaze of travelers in search of new adventures.
Due to the rapid increase in demand for lodging and tourist services, the tour operators have agreed together with the ecology department to leave a day free of traffic to the lagoon so as not to impact its fragile ecosystem so much.
