Bacalar & Chacchoben COMBO Tour
A great mix of culture, history and beauty. This is a combination of our two most popular shore excursions in a lovely full day package. First, visit the archaeological site of Chacchoben located one hour away from Costa Maya pier and explore this masterpiece in the history of the Mayan world.
Our certified guides will help you learn about the culture of the Mayan civilization that developed a unique written language and made contributions to humanity that today seem difficult to understand. Learn about their architecture, their mathematical system, and their extremely precise astronomical observations. This walking tour around Chacchoben will help you better understand the Mayan world and learn many of the great secrets that these pyramids have saved over time.
After a short drive, step aboard our pontoon boats for a relaxing lake ride in Bacalar, where you will visit a few of the unique cenotes located within this big body of water, also known as “The lake of seven colors.” Visit the Black Cenote and then cruise in front of the Fort San Felipe, along with a circumnavigation of Bird Island where you can capture unique images with your camera. We stop in Channel of the pirates and enjoy the unique water temperature to finally return to the starting point.
