The lake of Bacalar is known as the ‘lake of seven colors’ because of its ever changing tones which range from sandy white to hues of green and blue. This variety of color occurs due to a combination of factors: the crystalline water, the soft color on the bottom of the lagoon, the sun’s rays, and the undulating depth which doesn’t exceed 20 feet.
