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.

If you're trying to stay at a couples-only destination with someone special, you may want to give a look to Playa Sonrisa. 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.
