Stand Up Paddle Boarding at Sunrise with What SUP Bacalar in Bacalar, Mexico

My adventures in Bacalar, Mexico with What SUP Bacalar continue! If you love sunrise and sunset adventures, this one is for you! I love that I experienced sunset with Catamaran Sailing Experience, and sunrise with Stand Up Paddle Boarding with What SUP Bacalar!


Let me take you behind the scenes with sunrise Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Bacalar, Mexico!


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, Tulum Jungle Gym, and Top 10 Things to Do in Tulum, as well as adventures in Bacalar and Valladolid. I knew I wanted to spend 90%+ of my sunrises and sunsets in Bacalar Lagoon.


In researching tour companies in Bacalar, Mexico, I came across What SUP Bacalar with Picaflor's owner Valerie. I did a collaboration and consulting with Digital Marketing with Picaflor via Workaway.


Although, I reached out to other tour companies but things didn't align easily. In comparison, with What SUP Bacalar, a neighbor connected me with Daniel in Sales and Marketing. We moved forward quickly initially on a catamaran Sailing tour with What SUP Bacalar at sunset.


Even before I experienced the sunrise catamaran sailing tour, they invited me for sunrise stand up paddle boarding! With the Catamaran Sailing Sunset tour, I knew What SUP Bacalar is best of the best. I knew I would love the Stand Up Paddle Boarding Sunrise Experience too!


Before I knew it, the time to experience yet another adventure in Mexico: Sunrise Stand Up Paddle Boarding with What SUP Bacalar arrived!






With Jenn who I worked with via Workaway, Guimel who I met via Picaflor!
