After an amazing week in Bacalar, Wes and I made our way over to the city of Chetumal. On three separate occasions, people had us second-guessing whether we should be going there at all. Would there be any things to do in Chetumal, Mexico?
I had seen some amazing photos and videos of Bacalar's lagoon before visiting but I never imagined it would turn out to be one of my favourite places in all of Mexico. With so many shades of blue water, it's no wonder they call it the Lagoon of Seven Colours.
During our recent visit to Playa del Carmen, we kept hearing great stories from people who had gone snorkelling in nearby Akumal with sea turtles. In the wild. For free. Naturally, we set out to see if this was too good to be true!
