    Fort

    There is a 17th century fort called Fort San Felipe. It was built by the spanish for protection from the pirates and Maya who regularly raided the area.
    Today, part of the fort is a museum that houses arms used in the 17th and 18th centuries.The stone construction has been restored and cannons are still there overlooking Bacalar Lake

    The Mask

    The grounds around the hotel are very impressive also.
    There are many tropical plants and large trees. Early morning and late evening you will hear the squack of parrots and see many other birds.
    There are thatch-roofed buildings around the area. The building in the photo had a mask like we saw in the nearby ruins.
