Just a two hour drive from Tulum, arriving at Habitas Bacalar’s secluded and remote setting makes you feel like you’ve been let in on a grand secret—and as you make your way through the lush jungle to the calming, lagoon-side oasis, you realise: you have. Habitas’ ethos is simple – they are committed to honouring the Mayan traditions rooted in the region and supporting the local community, and these values set the tone for your stay. From a traditional Mayan welcome ceremony with palo de tinte upon arrival, to the Melipona honey and locally sourced ingredients used in everything from the spa menu to the dining, your stay at Habitas Bacalar uniquely reflects the richness of its location.
Embrace the relaxing, communal vibes of this intimate hideaway, as the scent of burning resin wafts through the air, and ambient music drifts through the mangroves. Opportunities to relax and let your mind soar freely are abundant, whether you choose to meditate in the yoga tents or lounge on the dock amidst the kaleidoscopic reflections of the dazzling blue lagoon.
Habitas Bacalar places sustainability at its core, drawing on the abundant natural resources around it whilst giving back to its natural home in equal measure. Its sustainability initiatives include stromatolite conservation, careful water and waste management, locally sourced food, and reforestation, so you can be sure of a retreat that’s good for you, and the planet.
