Activities/Attractions: Just a little more than half an hour away from the capital city of Chetumal and its airport, and about the same distance to the border with the country of Belize, Rancho Encantado is situated on the shores of the pristine waters of Laguna Bacalar, outside the small 16th century village of Bacalar. Casa Estrella de Bacalar is located on the lakefront at the north edge of the village.

This area, in the southernmost part of the Yucatan Peninsula, is just at the point of developing as a tourist destination for the eco-minded traveler who seeks escape from the larger, often over-developed areas of the northern part of the Peninsula.

Just an hour away from the nearest seaport of Mahahual, on the Caribbean coast, which is now a stopping point for cruise ships, the laguna is virtually undiscovered by tourism. It has always been known for the spectacular colors, much as the waters of the Caribbean, with its range of hues from emerald greens to azure blues and the famous brilliant arrays of turquoise and aqua.

Gardening and housekeeping services are provided and additional services of cooking and/or laundry can be arranged with the housekeeper at an additional cost. Meals can also be taken at adjacent Rancho Encantado at a 20% discount. Bar and spa services are also available at the Rancho.
