Perfect for those who like a bath-like environment and clear water. Swim in the Lazoon of Seven Colors or in huge Cenote Azul or other nearby limestone ponds..
The town is great for bike riding: nice and flat and with little traffic. Several storefronts rent bikes.
Fishing in the lagoon is limited but there are other possibilities relatively close, including the Caribbean sea and river.
Walk through town or along the lagoon.
Great for kayaking in the lagoon or Cenote Azul. Some of the beachfront hotels rent or loan kayaks.
A great place for boating.
Perfect place to lose yourself in a good book.
There's a small museum in the old fort.
Ruins within a few hours.
Not super jungly, but in the jungle part of Mexico.
With strong pre-Hispanic roots, this was also a colonial town.
On the Bacalar Lagoon, and not too far from the Caribbean.
Swim in lovely Cenote Azul at the south end of town; the lagoon itself is fed by several other cenotes.
Fewer than 10,000 inhabitants.
If you like small, unassuming Mexican towns on the water, this is the place for you.
