My husband Dave and I had quite an adventure traveling to Xcalak, which is exactly what we wanted! Margo provided perfect-to-a-tee instructions on how to get there, which we needed because it was pitch black when we arrived. When you turn off the main road, you drive through the lush biosphere. Sin Duda lies between the ocean and a lagoon - so you have a ton of fun options to choose from: kayaking, snorkelling, swimming, biking, searching for an elusive cenote, etc.
When we arrived, Margo and Robert were out of town, but their associates Kate and Sabrina were the best hosts ever. Our stay was incredible, comfortable, and we loved getting to know the other guests and the neighbors, as well. We partied at Toby's Gringo party, sampled all the local foods we could, made friends with Christian and Rosa at Sweet y Picante across from the park where Dave painted a mural. And ate at the divine Leaky Palapa. Our hosts also took a trip with us to San Pedro, Belize, for the day - a speedboat ride away from Xcalak through XTC Dive Center. We searched for manatees on the way back at the reserve.
It was a wonderful and memorable trip. The people are just so wonderful and the place is really fun and relaxing. What more could you as for?
