After my adventures in Palenque, I was looking forward to something a bit more laid back: a cruise on the Lagoon of Seven Colours.
We began our day with another long drive to Bacalar, which was pretty chilled. We got up super early, but one bonus of this was the chance of seeing the beautiful Mexican sunrise. Unfortunately, Delai wasn’t feeling too good and halfway through the drive we pulled up and relaxed for a while whilst he took some medication and had a nap.
This was actually sort of nice though, as we only stopped in a roadside cafe and spent the time playing some games to help us all get to know each other better which was fun.
Once we arrived in Bacalar, we stopped for lunch at a lovely seafood restaurant overlooking the lagoon, before heading over for our sunset cruise. I actually took barely any photos this day as my phone was low on battery (the photo above is nicked from one of the other tour goers – #sorrynotsorry) – but the cruise was really nice.
Now, I’m not actually sure why it’s called the Lagoon of Seven Colours – as it’s actually two colours, not even – but it sure is pretty regardless!
We even had the opportunity to stop and have a little swim, right above an underwater cenote. That was kind of scary – swimming off the ‘ledge’ and looking down to see nothing but darkness below you.
Even though it was just a brief boat ride, it was nice, and the laid back day was just what we needed, ready to prepare for the rest of our adventures.
