Travel guide for Chetumal and the Laguna Bacalar

My travel guide for Chetumal and the Laguna Bacalar contains some recommendations and experiences. Two beautiful places in Mexico next to the boarder of Belize. If you are planing a trip to Mexico, take your time to visit this stunishing part. The travel guide for Chetumal and the Laguna Bacalar will help you to explore the most beautiful parts.

Chetumal

Chetumal is a town with about 150’000 habitants and is situated next to the border to Belize. Honestly a hugh city but not much to explore. Chetumal has a nice sea with beautiful water. But there is no beach around to hang out.

The first day we just explored the sea, enjoyed the sun, listened to the music of the waves and were drinking a refreshing drink in a bar.

In the evening we went to the cinema to look the film fast and the furious 8. I have never been in such a cheap cinema before, haha. We payed not even 4 usd for both of us.

Chetumal is a good starting point for visiting the famous and breathtaking Laguna Bacalar.

Laguna Bacalar

The Laguna Bacalar is close to Chetumal and is one of the most beautiful lagunas I have ever seen in my life. She has seven different colors and is a mixture between salt and sweet water. There are several possibilities to explore the Laguna Bacalar.

  • Kayaking
  • Boat tour
  • Sailing tour

We decided to rent a kayak for two hours to cross the Laguna Bacalar. It was intensiv and I felt my muscles the next day. But it was every pain worth it.

How to reach the Laguna Bacalar: you can take a taxi or a shared taxi from Chetumal, which takes you about an half an hour. Or you can sleep in the town Bacalar, where you will find lots of hostels and accommodations.

Los Rapidos

Los Rapidos looks like a river and is a part of the Laguna Bacalar. There were just Mexicans and we – it was a funny and lovely afternoon. You can take a swim in the river and the water is crystal clear.

Another delicious summer drink – easy to make and it was also extremly refreshing during the short but hot period in Switzerland. Put the raspberries, blackberry, currant and blueberries with a handful of fresh mint leaves into your water to create an incredible mix of flavours, which I think you’ll love – it just tastes like summer!

 

recipe:
– 1 punnet of frozen raspberries

– 1 punnet of frozen blackberry

– 1 punnet of frozen currant

– 1 punnet of frozen blueberries

– a handful of mint leaves

 

I use frozen berries to keep the water cool. To add strawberries is a further option to give your summer drink a personal touch.

This is one of the best summer drinks, it’s so cooling and refreshing, and so delicious – it’s been my saviour over the last few weeks as it’s been so hot in Bern! The lemon slices and fresh mint all infuse into your water to create an incredible mix of flavours, which I think you’ll love – it just tastes like summer! I love making a big jug of this and keeping it in the fridge all day so that I can enjoy it any time, or if I’m out and about all day I’ll sometimes fill a big water bottle with this mix so that I stay hydrated all day and I never forget to drink water this way as it’s so delicious!

recipe:

– 1/2 lemon

– a handful of mint leaves
