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.

There is one dive operator and at least 11 different dive sites to choose from. To reach our detailed guide to diving opportunities in this area, click this link.
