Any trip as relate always begin with what happens before you do (decide to go, I must carry, create expectations, plan activities, times, set time, nerves, etc).
Although all the details are always planned inevitably take just an hour away and think “maybe I forgot something, I think not suit toothbrush”. This could be the most common.
I decided to undertake an unimaginable adventure, trace a route 3-day-Mahaual Bacalar Cancun Cancun. 4hrs a way to Bacalar for which we must prepare mentally and physically; few stops but absolutely worth it, different picturesque landscapes to the known (mangroves, lagoons, jungle, some civilized peoples and others not so much). I mention the most prominent Puerto Morelos, Puerto Aventuras, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Lemons, in the interim of these there are many more not less important course internees out of sight of the busy road.
From the road the distance you can see the Bacalar lagoon that indicates arrival. At approximately 5:30 pm direct to find our host who gives us a warm and affectionate welcome immediately begins to mention the majesty, goodness and virtues of this beautiful Bacalar protected by a strong, hidden among mangrove trees, walled and distant with only a sign that says “Bacalar Pueblo Magico.” never would go through my mind a place so full of mysticism. what is the plan? (dinner and make a night tour of the Bacalar lagoon) dinner course under a tree with all amenities a good restaurant facing the lagoon. the tour is an experience I would say it should always be done in good company or at least more than 1. This tour takes you to connect with your senses (smell, touch and sight). in the breadcrumb our guide tells us (narrated in plural because I was lucky to be accompanied) he talks about Bacalar lagoon, its history, its colors, its benefits and even how it was born. Meanwhile we are seeing the stars and not you need to be knowledgeable astrologer or to identify the planet Mars at first glance, the distance light up the sky nearby villages but really are at the center of everything we experience wonder, fun and magic. The tour continues until a part of the lagoon where the distance between the bottom of the boat and the bottom of lagoon are only 70cm. That data immediately activated my sense of sight, put lights and background appear like magic before your eyes, it is discovered. The red mangrove gives us the medicinal, relaxing, exfoliating, fresh mud. It is active in my sense of touch. Ruin abandoned in the middle of the lagoon tells the story that this marks the beginning ruin pirate channel, then they tried to do nightclub or restaurant but did not work. Today is in ruins and abandoned, but then becomes a fun place where you can axing nailed stylish.
The return is a little faster, we were entranced by what our senses had perceived, we returned to the restaurant “La Playita” to undertake way to our Eco-Hotel. Little by little we are interning in the jungle, with only the light of self opens the way and finally emerge these eco-cottages still not without all the amenities, you do not need more. Outside the room is a small room with chairs and a table for if you like to have a good night talks with the moon as witness.
We went to see The Pirate Galleon, a local housing baresito good vibe inside where we came upon the inhabitants of warm, friendly and fun Bacalar. Good music, dj, comedy show and good atmosphere.
Is a ritual out to see the sunrise 6:00 a.m. is a good time to do it, marveling at such a spectacle Mother Earth gave us this morning, we were shocked. Bacalar fence is a box of surprises. Breakfast and we said goodbye to Bacalar, see you soon!
Thus ends Bacalar we define it as “Bacalar magical town with recesses of colors that evoke stories of pirates, privateers, Mayan gods, natural phenomena. Where starlights become brighter. People all over the world, few people but after the inhabitants of the world. you can find in Bacalar whatever you’re looking for even love (nature, beauty, history, yourself or another).
Magic Bacalar full of mysticism, crystal clear waters, medicinal mud, adventure everywhere, beautiful people willing to accompany you on the journey to the best experience of your life. You can be lost in the depths of the jungle or perhaps in some of its streets, but always be certain that if you take some steps forward will open before your eyes this landscape of vast and different blue, so real that your mind will not you can believe it. Something never seen in the real world.
