Neighborhood grocery store i n Bacalar, Mexico

Neighborhood grocery store in Bacalar, Mexico, located in the far southern part of the state of Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula. With no supermarkets for miles around, residents of this tiny community rely on shops like this one for fresh produce and everyday staples. The town’s claim to fame is that it is located on the shores of Lago de Siete Colores (Lake of Seven Colors), the second largest lake in Mexico. Other than the lake, a must-see is Fuerte San Felipe Bacalar. Built in 1733 to protect the Spanish from pirates and Mayans who regularly raided the area, it is a stunning star-shaped stone fortress overlooking the lake.
