Xcalak National Reef Park

Located 15 miles south of Mahahual, Xcalak is a secluded stretch of Costa Maya with stunning marine life in the Xcalak National Reef Park, extending over 25 miles as part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Activities are plentiful and include fly fishing, scuba diving, SUP, kayaking and more. Without the hustle of nearby popular resorts, this is also a perfect place for peaceful strolls or romantic sunsets on the beach.

Do & See

Costa Maya is an up and coming tourist region that has something to offer to all age groups. Lesser-known Maya ruins such as Chacchoben and Kohunlich are sure to amaze with their amazing history and architecture, and natural wonders like Banco Chinchorro are a bucket list item for all sea lovers. If it's some quiet time by the beach you are after, the Malecón (boardwalk) in Mahahual will likely cater to all your needs.
