About the neighbourhood
Maya Cala means Mayan Cove and so the Villa sits on its own private cove over looking the Laguna Bacalar known as the lake of seven colors , surrounded by green jungle. The peace and tranquility of this location are as incomparable as the magnificent view and colorful sunsets. The water is so clear and fresh it's like stepping into heaven.
There are nearby ruins for day-trips or a locally run zip-line to see the jungle from another angle. You can kayak on the calm azure waters or rent a boat in Bacalar and go bird-watching across the lake in the mangroves. On the other hand hanging about in a hammock with a book may be your entire day.
The tranquil lake is fed by underground springs and has all the turquoise color and beauty of the Caribbean sea but the clear water is far more r...
Getting around
When guests confirm i will send a link with many area day trips , area info ,Boat tours ad more. Maya Cala is located in the middle of a jungle and a lagoon, making for an ideal setting for a variety of endemic plants and many animals, including a large number of birds.

A Tropical Paradise! The Villa is privileged because of it's amazing setting, on it's own private cove with the surrounding jungle and our close proximity to the ocean, either to the huge Bay of Chetumal and the beaches of fine white sand and turquoise water in Mahahual, from where you can reach the spectacular Chinchorro Reef, an underwater marvel.
