Our transportation will take us to another of Bacalar's wonderful cenotes. It is a completely natural spa where you can enjoy the Bacalar lagoon, learn more about the stromatolites and also immerse yourself in a cenote. It is a place that must be taken care of and respected when visiting.

The Cocalitos is the Sanctuary of the Stromatolites in Bacalar and it is also a spa open to the general public and it contains these living fossils of more than 3,500 million years old that we must take care of and respect, as their function is very important and helps to keep the lagoon water clean.

I super recomend this tour. It is great value for the money. Everything was well organized and tour gudes were helpful taking care of every passenger. Food breakfast and lunch were delicious and location was great near different lakes/cenote. Also you could have pick between many food options.
You have enough time for enjoying every sight. Pleanty of time for swiming and exploring. And all the places were more than beautyful.
It is hard to emagine day spent in a nicer way.
