If your looking for that blue water beach to take some photos, this is defiantly it. Allot of beaches in Cancun, Playa, are slowly getting that kelp and sea weed creaping in but this beach is just amazing. colors really pop

We drove to Xcacel From Puerto Aventuras and were met by a locked gate at entrance from Highway 307. No explanation nor any sign to say why it was closed. Very disappointing

It’s locked at the main highway and being ravaged to construct a large hotel. It is no longer available and any wildlife that existed will be destroyed or leave the area. Gone, gone, gone.

It's a turtle sanctuary, restricted working hours from 8 to 5 , beautiful cenote next to the beach ..... admission is a donation for the park, perfect spot if you are going to Coba or tulum ruins.
