Amazing place to visit Bacalar didn't disappoint

November 28, 2022

The nature were great, Bacalar Lagoon and the Cenotes are spectacular with surprises in it. However, I think the lunch could be improved, the DJ's music is too loud, it became difficult for the resto to find our names. We were assigned with a group of majority of Spanish group, not sure why this happened. The was no live tour for English given, it was just pure Spanish, the tour guide did not translate into English. The boat guide did on the lagoon, but they are not the main tour guides. Wish we could have stayed longer, but being on the bus for 8-10 hours occupied most of the time, it was a good nap though.
