The Fort of San Felipe tells the amazing story of the battles between the Mayans and pirates. The town of Bacalar was constantly attacked by Pirates from the United Kingdom, France and Germany who came in search of logwood (Haematoxylum campechianum)

This fort was taken by the Mayans during their Civil War called “War of castes”.
