Bacalar

Getting Here and Around

Bacalar is 3½ hours south of Cancún and 30 minutes north of Chetumal. It's just off Carretera 307, south of Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Limones. If you're coming from Cancún, follow the well-marked signs toward Bacalar. Upon entering the town, you'll cross over two huge speed bumps. Pass the Catholic church on your right, take a left at the first corner, and continue straight to the town center; to your left will be the Fort of San Felipe. Northbound drivers should take Carretera 106 to 307.
