 Museo Regional de BacalarEn el km 138 al noroeste de Chetumal sobre la costera de la laguna, se localiza esta fortificación del siglo XVIII que ha quedado como ejemplo de la arquitectura militar de la Nueva España, además de ser testigo de históricas batallas en contra de los ingleses, quienes pretendían controlar el comercio del palo tinto y de otras maderas preciosas existentes en la región. El museo cuenta con dos salas: la primera exhibe en forma permanente piezas extraídas de la laguna de Bacalar, así como una colección de objetos prehispánicos y de la época colonial.English translation:Regional Museum of Bacalar At kilometer 138 on the coastal highway northwest of Chetumal, this fortification from the 18th century is a striking example of the military architecture of New Spain, besides being witness to historical battles against the English, who sought to control the trade of palo tinto (Campeche wood, Haematoxylum campechianum) and other precious woods existing in the region.
