I was on a cruise and we ported at Costa Maya. I had booked a excursion with Native Choices to the Chacchoben ruins and then a private lunch at the lagoon. I had no idea I would be graced with such a serene and welcoming resort for our post ruins lunch time excursion!
As others have mentioned the road to get here was not the most pleasant, but when you pull through those gates at the Bacalar Lagoon Resort you are unveiled by absolute beauty. I was immediately captivated by the landscape and the generosity of all the grounds workers.
We walked up the stairs to where our fajita lunch with unlimited margaritas awaited us. We sat down and I was shocked when I looked up. I was blessed with stunning views right before my eyes. We faced the lagoon and all the windows were open letting in a gentle breeze. A server came over and took our drink order and shortly after our delicious fajita lunch arrived. The food was truly fantastic, from the meat and rice to the tortillas and beans. After lunch I voiced that I wanted to experience kayaking on the lagoon. Before I knew it someone was helping me get the kayak out and I was off paddling around the tranquil lagoon. After paddling around I took the opportunity to lay out and enjoy a pina colada on the beach chair.
It was almost time to go and I struck up a convo with Robert asking him about the property and expressing my interest. He toured me around a few villas and I thought they seemed fantastic for a get a way. Hopefully in the future I can come enjoy staying for more than just a few hours.
