Our Experience: Because we booked our trip last minute we didn't have that many options of places to stay in.
Overall, it's a great place to stay. Right in the center of bacalar. Huge rooms & full kitchen.
When we arrived to Bacalar we took a taxi to our hotel because it was late at night and very dark. Our driver was very kind, we got to talking to him and he gave us his number and drove us around for a reasonable price.
