On our way to the beautiful lagoon of Bacalar we stopped at the Lagoon de Kaan Lum to swim at a place that was not covered with stinky seaweed. It was a beautiful place and thanks to the clear water and an open under water cave you could see a mysterious blue hole in the middle of the lagoon. Because it was Sunday the locals also wanted to refresh themselves which crowded the place quite a bit.
A few hours of driving later we arrived in Bacalar where we checked into a small hostel right at the lagoon. The colors would have been beautiful and some say the water looks like in the Maledives but unfortunately the sun was never completely out and therefore we didn’t get to see this place in its full beauty. But this should soon be compensated with the next stop on our trip.
