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

Great food, great service, home brewed craft beer on tap, comfortable if rustic Cabanas, dive shop on site, kayaking, great diving and snorkelling, Fly fishing (we didn't, but everyone we spoke to who did said it was great). They hooked us up with a really good dive guide who knew the local reefs intimately. In short we had the best... 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

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
