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.

This was my 5th trip to CDC and it didnt disappoint me. They have kept the place in good condition all these years. The food is still great and the flyfishing even better ! This is one of my favourite place to get away from it all. No it isnt 5 star, but it is very comfortable, simple and clean.... More

My husband and I stayed one night here in October 2013. We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed Costa de Cocos!! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly from the minute we stepped out of the car. The food here was extremely good! We decided to go on a 1/2 day fishing trip and our guide Reuben was... More

We did not stay at this hotel, but had lunch here every day during our stay in Xcalak. We stayed at Casa Carolina and did not bring any groceries with us to have lunch there. So Costa de Cocos really became our "saviour" one day when everything else was closed! We had the fish tacos many times and they where... More
