Thanks to environmental laws, Xcalak is protected from mass tourism and remains small and slow to develop.  This is great for those looking for a spot along the Caribbean coast where life is anything but busy, but because of this it does lack in activities.  Fishing and diving are the most popular activities, and you can spend your days explore the nearby marine park to learn about the local eco-system. 


Xcalak Diving

Xcalak is an old fishing village, and some locations have murky water, making diving difficult at times. However, there are a number of dives that will grant tourist the ability to see some coral and the chance to see some marine life.

You'll find one dive service and at least 11 different dive sites in the area. You can go to this page which is all about scuba diving in this area if you'd like to learn additional details.
