Just before you reach Ambergris Caye as you drive down the Caribbean Coast of Mexico, you'll encounter the small town of Xcalak.  Nature and watersports are the major draws to this area of Costa Maya, but the available accommodations don't slack off because this isn't a major resort area.  All along the coast it is easy to find small hotels, guest houses, and private villas to rent out during your stay.

One place on the ocean that is worth considering is Costa de Cocos. Situated near the Yucatan Jungle is the Costa de Cocos, named for the abundance of coconut palms that surround the property.

Playa Sonrisa is a casual, clothing optional naturist paradise for adult couples. The property's remote location seven kilometers north of the village offers seclusion and privacy away from crowds and gawkers for the peaceful tranquility to relax and be "barefoot all over"on the wide sandy beach, chilling in a hammock between the palms, lounging under a palapa on the large dock which extends 200 feet from shore, or cooling off in the water. If you want to be sure they're open , call them at (719) 966-4309.
