Additional Location Information

Located just North of the Town of Bacalar near the village of Buena Vista, Maya Azul is lakeside in a private gated development with very few neighbours. This is a place where you go to get away from things. Peaceful and tranquil you may see monkeys, coatimundis, deer, foxes, parrots, pacas or if you are very lucky a toucan or a tapir. A wonderful place for birdwatchers, the feathered folk are in abundance and are not shy about their presence. For those botanical minded folks a short trip by kayak or wading along the lake will provide a view of mulitple types of wild orchids, trees with cactus hanging off of them or trees with exotic fruits. From the rooftop you can see for miles and all you will see is the jungle canopy, birds, and the lake. It is a rare occasion to even see or hear a boat on the lake. Swimming in the lake is pure luxury. The water is clean and beautiful. We recommend you bring water shoes or clogs or sandals to wear because of the snail shells that are sometimes on the bottom, in lieu of footware, bare foot will do.
There are many interesting day trips that can be taken to nearby ruins, south to the ocean in Calderitas or east to Mahahual. The adventuresome can drive to the Sian Ka'an Biosphere where there are literally miles of wild white sand beaches with no one around. The town of Bacalar offers restaurants and small stores as well as the ruins of the Spanish fort.
To get to Maya Azul you can fly into either Cancun or Chetumal then rent a car and drive. From Cancun you would drive about 4 hours straight south along the main highway 307. From Chetumal you drive north about 45 minutes. The front gate is manned from 8 am to 8 pm it is recommended to arrive within that time frame. Once you are there you will have the use of a front gate key during your stay so you can come and go after hours if you choose.
