There's no escaping the past at this area's popular Fort of San Felipe.
If you're hoping to attend a live sports event at Quintana Roo's Cenote Azul, travel 5 miles (8 kilometers) northeast of Bacalar. A huge part of the excitement is being one with the cheering locals.
Venture a mere 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the southeast to check out the fascinating Oxtankah Ruins and the Museum of Maya Culture. They make for a great day of sightseeing in Chetumal.
Vacationing works up an appetite. After completing a few hours of serious sightseeing, recharge at one of the local restaurants.
This region's enthusiasm for beans and pork is evident in some of the specialty dishes.
Learn about local cuisine and customs by tasting esquites (mexican corn salad) and tamales, two authentic dishes.
For a delicious dessert, or even a secret afternoon bite, enjoy local treat, arroz con leche (rice with milk).
Enjoy a pint of Dos Equis, a popular local beer, during your travels in the region. It's an ideal way to enjoy a lazy day on vacation.
It's a good idea to cleanse your palate with a non-alcoholic drink. Café de olla (cinnamon coffee) is worth a try for everyone visiting the area.
Get a feel of this region and its locals by sampling a tejuino, a popular liquor here.
Find a nice place to relax with that someone special and sip on sauvignon blanc or viognier, just two of the well-known wines featured here.
Taking the time to learn a little Spanish will enhance your experience with the locals. One handy phrase is "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" ("Would you like to dance with me?"), which can be used from time to time. Another helpful expression is "Este caballero pagará por todo" ("This gentleman will pay for everything").
See Mexico come alive when you join the crowds for Independence Day, a national celebration held every year on the 16th of September.
