Bacalar, Mexico: Sailing Away with What SUP Bacalar

What SUP all my adventure lovers? Want to sail away with What SUP Bacalar?

Let me take you behind the scenes with our private catamaran sailing tour.


My adventures have included skydiving in Houston one New Year, scuba diving in Cozumel, Egypt, Jamaica, surfing in Manuel Antonio and ocean view zip lining in Costa Rica to name a few!


Before my travel to Mexico in 2021, I knew I wanted to experience the best Cenotes, Azulik, Tulum Jungle Gym, Day Trips, and Top 10 Things to Do in Tulum, as well as Bacalar and Valladolid.. I knew I either wanted to do something new and/or a prior adventure in a new environment in Mexico. I researched different experiences with catamaran in Bacalar, art experiences, and free diving.


What SUP Bacalar came up a few times including being highly recommended by Picaflor's owner Valerie too! I did a collaboration and consulting with Digital Marketing with Picaflor via Workaway.


I previously reached out to other tour companies and either didn't hear back or things didn't move forward. With What SUP Bacalar, a neighbor connected me with Daniel in Sales and Marketing. We moved forward step by step on a catamaran tour with What SUP Bacalar.


Before I knew it, the time to experience yet another adventure in Mexico: Catamaran Sailing with What SUP Bacalar arrived!

My Experiences With What SUP Bacalar

This is my first time experiencing an adventure in Bacalar, Mexico with What SUP Bacalar. Thanks to rave recommendations from Picaflor, connecting with Luis-a tour guide, Daniel, Sales and Marketing, and the team Lorena and Cesar on our Catamaran Sailing Adventure in Bacalar, Mexico, I already know it won't be my last.

I experienced connecting with Luis, Daniel and Lorena to organize our sailing adventure on a Catamaran for up to 6 people plus the Sailing Captain.


Before my adventure, I reviewed information via the What SUP Bacalar website.


It helped me get a glimpse of the breathtaking beautiful adventure I would experience with What SUP Bacalar.


At the same time, nothing could fully prepare me for pristine and priceless beauty all around us at Bacalar Lagoon.


What made this experience with What SUP Bacalar extra special included doing it with friends and doing it for a new friend, Aga's Birthday. We started off with myself, Jenn, Aga, and Guimel.


While serving with Workaway and Picaflor, Jenn and I became fast friends and were roommates for my first five days in Bacalar! I met Giumel via Picaflor, who is super friendly, speaks great English, and worked as a server with them at the time.


What SUP Bacalar is incredible. A Sailing Adventure and/or Stand Up Paddle Boarding is a MUST during your visit in Bacalar!
