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.
