Fundación de Bacalar Prehispánico
El poblado de Bacalar se fundó cuando los Itzaes, un grupo de hombres portadores de la cultura maya y procedentes del Peten Guatemalteco, llegaron a la Laguna de Bacalar (hoy conocida como Laguna de los 7 colores) en el k’atún 8 Ajaw: 415-435 de la era cristiana y fundaron un poblado al cual llamaron Sianka'an Bak’jalal (hechizo del cielo rodeado de carrizos).
