We stayed four nights in Costa de Cocos and enjoyed every moment. It is very rustic, we shared our casita with a family of iguanas living in the wall. But you are right on the beach, the wind is always blowing, the restaurant bar is always open, the frigate birds are always gliding above, what more can you ask for.... More

We come to Xcalak to fish repeatedly and we often stay at this hotel. The owners are extremely service oriented, and the staff, especially in the dining room are really good and speak English. Early breakfasts were arranged for us, even earlier than their usual early start time, and this allowed us to get on the flats at first light... More

My husband and I spend 4 nights at Casta de Cocos on our February 2015 Caribbean vacation. The hotel consists of about 16 very comfortable thatched roof bungalows, a restaurant/bar serving food all day and 10 boats to take visitors out on day excursions for fly fishing or snorkeling. The thing that really struck us was the happy, welcoming, service-oriented... More

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed kayaking out to the reef in front of the hotel. Kayaks and snorkel gear were provided by a very helpful staff. Breakfast was plentiful and included in the cost. This is a fisherman's gathering place and clearly the focus of why people come here but we enjoyed their company and hearing about... More

We took a ride down from Mahahaul for the day. Our first stop was at the Reel Inn at "Costa de Cocos". We had some delicious fish tacos and my GF ordered one of their "specialty" drinks. The girl working the bar was entirely sure how to make it but was THRILLED when she was told that it was perfect.... More

My husband and I have been vacationing in the Maya Riviera area for the past 20 years, witnessing the area go from peaceful and quaint to nonstop development and traffic. We were anxious to find a place that brought back the feel of a simpler, fishing town experience. The area around Xcalak definitely does that. I was a little worried... More

We stopped here for lunch twice after diving with XTC (also fabulous). They accommodated up to 7 of us with smiles and a welcoming atmosphere. The food was wonderful and the Tarpon Pale Ale was greatly appreciated by my husband. Unfortunately we didn't get an opportunity to try the pizza which is after 5 pm. We had a selection of... More

This place is fantastic, the food is great and the fishing is wonderful. Be prepared for a simple hut that is clean, has electricity and flush toilets. The place pretty much closes down after 8:30pm so bring a few activities or bubblies to keep you busy. Fishing starts at 8am, you meet at the dock and head out to the... More

Xcalak is a find - it looks miles and miles away on the map (right by the Belize border), but it's only 3 hours South of Tulum if you have a decent car. And wow - the place is to die for. A cute dusty Wild West outpost, 60kms from the next town, with miles and miles of virgin mangrove... More

Awesome food, awesome fishing, in a great relaxing place. The accommodations are rustic but functional. Don't stay here if you are looking for a "canned" cancun resort experience with beach peddlers and techno music. Food at the reel inn bar was awesome and so was the service. Nicest people I've met in Mexico.
