Bacalar is a town in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo located about 40 km north of Chetumal. The town is known for the large lagoon that shares its name. The lagoon is renowned for its striking blue color and water clarity, partly the result of having a white limestone bottom. Like most bodies of water in the Yucatán peninsula, the lake is fed by underground rivers, whose regular open pools are cenotes. ©istock/Rainer Lesniewski
