Urban Art

Art Is life . Life Is Art

Besides Mayan pyramids, Bacalar boat tours, Museums, and local gourmets, nearby Bacalar Sunrise Villa, there is a small town called Xul ha, located in the middle of Chetumal and Bacalar.

Xul ha is the beginning of Bacalar lagoon. It provides the cleanest spring water to the entire lake from Bacalar to Buena Vista. Without Xul ha, there will be no Bacalar lake.

Wanting to improve their village image and becoming another touristic site, habitats of Xul ha have invited many artists and painters to share their artworks with the world. There are more than 60 paintings spread around the village of Xul ha, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Bacalar Sunrise Villa we have created a map with the location of each painting so our guests can enjoy by walking or biking around the village without a sweat.

All those paintings were created based on elements of water, fire, earth, wind, life and Mayan culture. Those paintings could be a contemporary, abstract, cartoon and even graffiti.
