I’m really excited to interview Katrina Julia of Fit Life Creation about Bacalar, Mexico. Katrina’s tips for the best things to do in Bacalar are awesome because she is a global traveler that loves to experience new cities in far-off places. Katrina spent two weeks in Bacalar for a sponsored trip and loved the slower pace of life, beauty of the lagoon, and friendliness of the people.
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out Bacalar, the local visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.

Getting around Bacalar
In 2023, Tulum is opening an international airport, which will offer a much closer option than flying into Cancun.
Katrina says that, if you’re staying in Bacalar for your entire trip, there’s no need to rent a car. However, if you decide to rent a car instead of taking the bus from Cancun, these are the best offers from Avis, Budget, or Hertz.
