I was on a fly fishing trip with friends. It was their first time and my third time staying at Acocote. Now, they are as "hooked" as I am. They were planning a return before we even left. The property is secluded and beautiful. This fly fishing is fantastic. Rob is a great host. I hope to return soon.
I stayed at Acocote in early March of 2020 and had a fantastic trip. The primary purpose of our trip was fishing and Rob (owner) was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with fishing advice and access to area flats and lagoons. Our suite was great - with 2 BR/2 Baths and a full kitchen, plus a balcony with a view of the ocean. The beach adjacent to the inn is beautiful with amazing snorkeling just a few yards off the sand. We will be coming back soon.
Found this place thanks to a friend of mine that knows this aria well. When I got to Acodote I got greated by Rob, and the dogs, and his super tasty (and super dangerous :) ) Margaritas. Or as he calls them "Robarita" and a nice barbeque. The staff is excellent and very attentive. Rooms very clean and super nit for the area. Really want to go back and enjoy Accocte more times. Thanks Rob for making my stay so nice as it was.
If you are looking for a place to get away from the overly touristy development so common in QR, then Rob's place might be the perfect spot for you. You'll have to work to get there, but once you arrive you will find a comfortable, well appointed and relaxing spot right on the beach. If you are a fly angler, all the better. Guided and DIY fishing abounds in the area and Rob is the man to point you in the right direction.
The entire town of Xcalak is magical. Every person you meet is friendly and every sight you lay eyes on is breathtaking. But there is something special about the Acocote Eco Inn (AEI) and its keepers, human and canine. I've booked two vacations here thus far and plan to return many more times. If you're looking for amazing snorkeling, fishing, beach relaxing, ruin exploring, delectable cuisine, or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of life; a vacation at the AEI is for you. The innkeeper, Rob, is a wealth of knowledge and entertaining stories. There are so many day trip options outside of the town of xcalak that he will recommend and prep you for. The coral reef here is a sight to behold. I've probably spent 15+ hours on my two trips snorkeling without a guide or boat, just off of Rob's beach, and still feel like I've just touched the surface. I highly recommend catching a nap in one of Rob's beach hammocks, hanging with his cute doggos, requesting a fresh coconut from his friendly groundskeeper, or waiting around the inn one day to see the novelty that is the fruit/meat/"whatever they're selling that day" truck come through town. Borrow Rob's kayaks or paddle boards to explore the ocean or the lagoon in his "back yard", I promise you'll enjoy your time either way. If you are lucky enough to visit this location in your lifetime; some pro tips! 1. (If you drink alcohol) Request a "Robarita", you WON'T be disappointed. 2. Visit carnitas and bring a game or two (closed on mondays, plan for it!) The most authentic and laughably affordable tacos I've ever eaten. 3. If you visit during the 6 months per year they're open, VISIT THE LEAKY PALAPA and eat everything you can on that menu. The owners are lovely people and the food is mindblowing. 4. Whether you fly fish, bait fish, or want to try fishing for the first time ever, book a day trip with Osprey tours. Catching or not, I have loved everyday I've spent with victor or a member of his crew. You'll have an experience to remember and make a lifelong friend with the awesome guides. 5. Ask rob to reccomend his favorite places in xcalak and surrounding areas to visit. You'll hear great stories and find you don't have enough days in paradise to visit all the awesome places he recommends. 6. UNPLUG. As the AEI wifi password suggests, disconnect from outside life while you are there and recharge your batteries, this is the perfect place to do it. …
