About Museum of Fort San Felipe Bacalar
To avoid the constant looting by English, French, Dutch, Eastern, White and African pirates, this fort is built at the beginning of the 18th century. Later it became military barracks and finally opens its doors as a museum. In addition to the imposing construction, you can admire different pieces from the Mayan culture and colonial times. From the fort you can see the Laguna de Bacalar, the passage of pirates.
