Most of the people once in Mexico stop in Tulum and they feel amazed by nature...We suggest real travelers to continue 3 more hours (south from Tulum) by bus to find the paradise. Crystal clear fresh water and a small cozy village?! Here we go!...More

This lagoon is so so beautiful. There are several access points, the most prominent one being the town of Bacalar. I highly recommend going to swim in the lake at Cocolitos, where the water is clear as air, and it remains shallow for at least...More

Hurry and visit this location while it is still unspoiled and untouched. I feel bad writing a review as i'm afraid the place will get more and more people and lose its touch, but its beautiful.

Hi there, as far as I remember the entrance fee to the lake was very cheap it was like 40 pesos, and then you can check inside for the boat tour to see all the lake or there are other different options.
