I am the kind of person that can go really low when things go wrong. I am a glass-half-empty kind of person. When the glass was full, I drank half of it, that was good (or not??) and now it is half empty, not half full, otherwise I could not have drunk half. Do you get what I mean? Anyway, I went on a vacation to Bacalar, the City of the bluest lagoon in the world, or so they say.
We booked a week’s stay in a hotel in the center of Bacalar, with private closed of parking for the motorbikes. It was walking distance from the restaurants and bars and far away enough to not hear the nighttime noises and it was also walking distance from the lagoon of 7 colors. The Bacalar Lagoon.
But upon arriving the lake was anything but blue, it was all shades of green. Very beautiful, but not like you expected. Some muddy water had entered the lagoon at some point and made it all muddy. Travel 2 km north or south, it was blue. But not in Bacalar. Just my luck. But nothing bad, I still loved the view and enjoyed sitting at the lakeside or walking around Bacalar without having to take out the camera all the time. It was so much fun.
We had two relax days and three day-trips planned, to archeological sites in the area and that was about it.
But like I said, when things go wrong in my life I can go very low, and become very discouraged. I made a vlog about it, and while you get to see some awesome views and an amazing road trip that took us close to the Belize border, to some wonderful Maya structures and tipped the 7 colors lagoon and other lakes in the area while riding dirt roads and all sorts of amazing stuff, I will explain what went wrong after all was great.
