Bacalar, Mexico is a great weekend getaway!

This last weekend we spent in Bacalar, Mexico as we had some friends who wanted to see our development there. For me, I will use any excuse to go to Bacalar simply because it is peaceful and beautiful. It is a short 3 hour trip from Playa del Carmen so it was easy to leave Saturday morning, have breakfast in Felipe Carrillo Puerto (half way) than be in Bacalar by about 12:30.

We spent the night in our usual lovely hideaway on Bacalar lagoon (that must remain nameless so it does not get all booked up) and then headed home to Playa del Carmen on Sunday afternoon.

We were surprised to find two awesome events happening Saturday night in this quiet little town. We had an artisan show at Casita Carolina’s as well as Carnival happening in the main square! Who needs sleep on the weekend? We even found time to play for awhile at Cenote Azul.

The ride home was another adventure and took a little while longer as we chose to stop at almost every roadside stand. We bought fresh mandarin juice, mini bananas fresh off the tree, a huge sack of juice oranges (because the vendor insisted on cutting each of us an orange to try and they were excellent), some fresh nuts, two pineapples, some banana bread from one of the ladies at a speed bump and some various arts and crafts. We arrived home not only at peace but full!

It was another great weekend in paradise! Maybe next time you can join us.

Enjoy the Adventure! Suzanne
