Bacalar 7 is an ecologically responsible project, with the purpose of actively caring for and making the beauty of the Bacalar lagoon system known in a sustainable way.

We have traveled this beautiful lagoon from end to end, including the Chaak estuary and Rio Hondo and its connection with the Bay of Chetumal.


We promote an eco-friendly sailing culture.


We have the pleasure of showing this beautiful lagoon and its natural environment to people from Mexico and from different countries.

For our team, caring for the lagoon is very important as well as its biodiversity, uses and customs.

We are in favor of sustainable development and ecotourism.


1- Bring a long-sleeved shirt or sun shirts, glasses and an adjustable cap or hat.

Avoid sunscreen including biodegradable,

because stromatolites need the sun

to photosynthesize.

2-Stromatolites are colonies of prehistoric bacteria, they photosynthesize and produce oxygen. These microorganisms form rock-like structures and are very fragile: avoid contact and observe them from a minimum distance of 5 meters.

3- The snails (chivitas) are the basis of the feeding of birds and fish, they also keep the bottom clean and balance the content of organic matter in the lagoon bed.

They place their eggs on docks, fences and mangroves: they are hundreds of white balls stuck together. Do not tear them off, each ball is a snail egg.

4- In Bacalar live different types of birds: avoid making noise in nesting areas, the birds get stressed and may not return again.

5- Avoid carrying products with wrappers that produce garbage and if you see any, collect it and deposit it in its respective container to be recycled. Bacalar needs all of us.

6- When sailing, kayaking or doing activities such as snorkeling in cenotes and in areas where there are stromatolites and aquatic plants, it is very important to wear a life jacket, as it helps us not to step on the fauna and flora of the lagoon bed and we can rest enjoying the surroundings.

7- Bacalar is an ideal earthly paradise to reconnect with nature and with yourself.

There are many options for holistic and ecotourism activities: such as a yoga class, a sunrise in paddle or kayak, riding a bike, a massage or a delicious and healthy meal; even a temazcal bath to detoxify your body.

Help us maintain a sustainable approach and consume local products.
