Something that I love about where I live is that we have all this amazing places to visit and just a few hours away from town. This time, I went with some friends to Laguna Azul, we left Puerto Morelos after they closed the restaurant they work at and drove about 4 hours south, towards Chetumal.
Lake Bacalar is in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The lake itself is 50 kilometers long (north to south), but at most just 1 Km wide. Its southernmost point is just north of the Belize border and Chetumal.
The place we went to it’s called Laguna Azul (Blue Lagoon), nearby Limones, it’s owned by a German men called Federico (Fritz), He runs a little restaurant, four fully enclosed cabanas, and camping facilities. It’s a great place to swim, hang your hammock, and meet a pretty unusual cast of characters.
My friend Lalo trying to catch something… he fail.
I’m trying to catch some small fish to use as bait.
My technique didn’t work :-(
Good thing we had something else to eat.
We spend the day doing nothing, just chilling, swim a bit, did some kayaks, sleep in the hammock, and eat, eat, and eat!
He had better luck the second night, but we only did catch and release, since we weren’t actually eating those fish. They were small anyway.
Next day, on our way back to Puerto Morelos, we went to eat in Mahahual.
