// Just got back from an amazing vacation in mexico, here’s a quick review//
The town of Bacalar is now my favorite location for a relaxing, authentic small Caribbean town vacation. This magical village is full of interesting history, most of which you can experience for yourselves.
A visit to the Fort of San Felipe and the Museum of Pirates will thrill you as it enthralled me. You’ll get the sense of history that is Bacalar. These are just a couple of the town’s many features that will capture the rapt attention of your whole family.
It is also impossible to ignore Bacalar’s world famous multi-colored lagoon, which is an exciting, natural, warm water swimming pool, promoting even more relaxation and fun. You also will see the nuances of Caribbean culture “up close and personal” when you choose Bacalar for your rest and relaxation (R&R) interlude.
If you love fresh seafood as I do, you’ll love the hotels and restaurants in Bacalar. You will be challenged to find fresher seafood varieties anywhere else around the globe.
You’ll also have great fun at the many frequent festivals and other events the locals enjoy. The townspeople are pleasant and welcoming. Whether you come to Bacalar for romance or family fun, you will find what you seek in this magical town.
There are no large hotel complexes in Bacalar, unlike many other outstanding warm weather tourist destinations. I believe this is a good thing, particularly if you want to “get away from it all.”
If you’re a fan of snorkeling, as I am, and windsurfing, you’ll love Las Velas Bacalar as a destination. The fabulous views are only matched by its location, right on the shores of the famous Bacalar Lagoon. The hotel’s restaurant, Playita, serves wonderful dishes to tempt and satisfy any palate.
If you love the beach as I do, you’ll have a great time at Las Velas Bacalar. The multi-colored waters of the Lagoon shine brightly at this beachfront destination. Relax on the deck and watch the rest of the world go by.
When you value laid back, friendly staff, primarily concerned with your comfort and enjoyment, you’ll find your ideal at this hotel. Should you also enjoy sailing and kayaking, you will be thrilled at the seven colors of the Lagoon, as you enjoy the hotel’s private dock.
When you bring the family, your kids will love the kids’ meals and snack bar; you can also choose to have breakfast in your room. This hotel also offers babysitting service if you prefer to leave the young ones at the hotel while you explore Bacalar or, should you take advantage of the sailboat tours of the Lake and Lagoon, babysitting could be an ideal solution for family harmony.
With only four guest rooms, Las Velas Bacalar is the epitome of the intimate accommodations Bacalar is famous for. It is more like a Bed & Breakfast Inn (B&B) with hotel services than a typical mega hotel that you’re used to. Hotel staff speak three languages (Swedish, Spanish, and English) for your convenience.
