Xcalak is a beautiful and lonely place! Costa de Cocos was the only hotel that was not overpriced. They gave us a discount as we were travelling in the off-season. All other hotels were at least 75 US$ the night. The breakfast was included and it was really good! In general the restaurant was excellent (although it was a little... More

Xcalak and Costa de Cocos is a long way from any where, which makes it a great place to get away and relax. The rooms are rustic cabanas but they are clean. The resort is located north of the town and somewhat remote. Fortunately they have a good restaurant on site with plenty of food options and the food is... More

Xcalak Mexico is not your normal travel destination. But if you love fly-fishing it is a great place to fish for bone fish, permit, snook and tarpon. Staff are friendly and facility is nice. The fishing guides are very knowledgeable of Chetumal bay and will make your fly-fishing experience a great one. They even helped me land my first permit... More

Arriving in Xcalak I was told that the fish tacos at Cocos are the best. So my wife and I went there for lunch. The fish tacos were really good and cost ~$7USD (prices on the menu were in USD). We were given a free starter of nacho chips and salsa. Each fish taco plate had 2 large wheat tortilla's... More

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
