This place is truly fantastic! A real gem on the northern section of the lake, very private, with all the necessary amenities, great platform onto the lake for swimming. This was a solo trip, surrounded by mother nature, peaceful and ideal for meditation. Made good use of the kayak for exploring. Highly recommended!

This house is an experience in close contact with nature. Go first to bacalar pueblo and visit the touristic part of the laguna then come here and you will enjoy this place even more. You will be in close contact with nature and one step away from the lagoon, birds and crickets singing at night. It will feel like living in Tarzan cabana. It takes few Km of driving in the jungle and pineapple fields before getting there. Get there during the day to get comfortable with the place

We had an excellented stay at Manatee on the moon. The location is definitely off the beaten path a bit, but that made it perfect. Pure seclusion, you have the entire lake to yourself! The lake is bath water warm and the dock leading down from the porch is on a part of the lake that's perfect for swimming. The house had all the amenities we needed, and to go to sleep hearing the sounds of the jungle is something you have to experience. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to bacalar. Thanks Debbie.
