Charly was our captain and was great. He really knew how to handle a sailboat and was knowledgeable of the Bacalar Lagoon. It was a very good afternoon and even though the clouds came in we saw a brilliant sunset.


Great experience with wonderful captain of the boat- lots of history and fun facts about the lake. Perfect 3 hours of fun, views and music…we would come back again! Thanks much for the memories, Capt Benito…💪🇲🇽🙌


The best way to see the lagoon - went to some amazing swim spots, had some delicious fruit & beers, and Sarah & Benito were amazing hosts!! Would 100% recommend to friends, solo travellers or couples looking for an authentic and relaxing boat ride ☺️


My friend booked this tour for us and I could not be happier with this experience. It was on a Sunday morning and we were lucky to have the boat all to ourselves. Sailing in Bacalar was my top excursion I did while there. I highly recommend it and sailing with Balacalar's Xperience made it all the more special. Sarah and German (Herman?) are expert sailers and I felt safe in good hands. This trip is perfect for someone who wants a chill and relaxing time on the lagoon. There was some information that was pointed out throughout the ride but this is the kind of experience where they will talk as much or as little as you desire. We got to visit two spots and go for a swim, The water is amazing. Afterwards, coming back they had some snacks and drinks for us. Life jackets provided as well. Be sure to bring protective sun items (like a hat and something to cover) because sunscreen is prohibited in the Lagoon, we got a little burnt.


Benito and Sarah are the best! I live in Bacalar and always book tours for my friends with them because I know they will get treated with excellent care. They are passionate about what they do and enjoy getting to know visitors. Benito is born and raised in Quintana Roo so you can learn a lot from him about the area and get real answers.


The place is easy to find, nice welcome, departure on time to discover the lagoon. Unfortunately the wind was not at the RV, small engine so short excursion! Really friendly captain and first mate with good knowledge of the area. We did not see and were entitled to everything that was described in the presentation sheet, for my part it was a small disappointment, fortunate that the lagoon was as magnificent as expected, a real visual joy!


Sailing trip in the Bacalar lagoon, a “must”! This lagoon is certainly the most beautiful place in the Yucatan..., Louisa's very interesting explanations about the cenotes and the lagoon and the professionalism of Benito, the captain, made this outing a real success..., a young company which greatly deserves to be supported and which offers a high quality service to tourists.


El tour más que maravilloso, conocer cada zona de Bacalar y junto con la compañía de el Capitán Benito, tiempo en zonas, snacks y bebidas muy ricas, atención y viaje de 100, muchas gracias por todo y sin duda es recomendado ir en velero con él, vale muchísimo la pena.


Le rythme s'est fait au rythme du vent, nous permettant de profiter pleinement de la nature et des couleurs de la lagune : une bonne manière de faire du tourisme plus écologique ! Armés de leur bonne humeur, Sarah et Germàn nous ont raconté les histoires des lieux où nous passions. La bière et la dégustation de fruits étaient super après ces quelques baignades dans l'eau translucide de la lagune !


Muy buena agencia para visitar la laguna. Equipo muy amable. Experiencia mágica y muy agradable en velero.
