Casa Tortuga is part of the magic of Bacalar, one of Mexico’s famed Pueblos Magicos (Magic Towns). We are located on the shores of the Lagoon of 7 colors, famed for its turquoise waters.
Travellers from all around the world come here to have fun, adventures or just to chill out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and breath-taking scenery. We aim to be more than a hostel: where friends become family, a place to come back to again and again.. a home. That’s what Casa Tortuga is about.

Restaurant and Bar

Enjoy the delicious food we offer in our restaurant, from sandwiches and burgers to salads, tacos, cookies and muffins. Head to the bar for a choice of freshly made juices, smoothies and cocktails.
