What you'll do

At the beginning we capacitate you on how to use the paddle board and the rules of the circuit. The first point we visit is the bird´s island, in which we will be able to recieve the first rays of the sunrise and view the birds that live in the island. After that, we continue our way to the first cenote which is cenote esmeralda, there we will get to see one of the water sprouts that connect the lagoon with underground water vains. We keep paddling through the crystalline channel to then stop for a snack and hydrate ourselves. Also on the circuit we will be seeing the ´chivita´´ snail, and the stromatolite rocks; later we proceed to the black cenote also known as cenote de la bruja, where we will be able to swim and snorkel as we did in cenote esmeralda, from there we part to the place where the adventure begun.
Along the circuit we explain the characteristics of the lagoon, its history and the diferent popular legends that involve the lagoon; as well, during the way i will be taking pictures, which i will be sending to you at the end of the journey.

The sunrise was beautiful and this is the best way to see it. We had a great time, and saw some really beautiful places we wouldn’t have seen on our own.

I had a wonderful experience! Ricardo, Antonio's brother, was super nice and attentive. I really appreciated that he shared detailed information about each stop we made and also took great pictures of us. And the views were absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend to do the sunrise paddle board tour with them!

There are many options for paddle boarding in Bacalar, but I am so very glad I chose Antonio’s tour at sunrise. As with almost any experience in Mexico, we got started a little late. But nothing could take away from how beautiful it was being out on the water at sunrise. And Antonio was wonderful. I could tell he was so passionate about the lagoon and the surrounding ecology. And he provided generous tasty snacks and took so many photos for us. This is probably my favorite thing I’ve done in Bacalar. :):):)
