This resort hotel is located in the small coastal village of Xcalak, away from the hustle of the tourist towns and nestled between the lush jungle and serene beach. A variety of activities and individualized treatment enhance the region even more and ultimately create one of the most basic, relaxing, revitalizing, and fulfilling resorts in Mexico.

Those hoping to stay active should find exactly what they're looking for at Casa Paraiso, which boasts an excellent variety of outdoor possibilities. You'll have the opportunity to enjoy fishing, kayaking, and scuba diving at this beach-side destination, as well as a number of other options.

Located in the vicinity of Xcalak, Casa Paraiso welcomes visitors who want to stay in this section of Quintana Roo. If you're wondering, the center of Xcalak is two miles (three kilometers) to the south.


Guestrooms at Casa Paraiso all have balconies that face the sea and hammocks that can fit two people. Casa Paraiso produces its own electricity by solar panels, and electricity and hot water are available at all hours. Guestrooms also have daily maid service, a ceiling fan, and a basic kitchen with a sink, stove, small refrigerator, cookware, utensils, drinking glasses, and dishes.

There is also an option to have 3 single beds for fishermen or divers who would like separate sleeping options.

Activities and Amenities

At Casa Paraiso, there are no loud clubs, tourist traps, or rowdy neighbors, just a simple village and the natural beauty of the region.

The hosts of Casa Paraiso, Ben and Esther, have been in the region for decades and provide individual attention and plans so that you get the most out of your stay. Activities at Casa Paraiso include swimming, diving, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, biking, viewing nature, hiking in the jungle, and visiting the Mayan ruins. Snorkeling gear and beach towels are provided to guests. Though Casa Paraiso is deliberately simple and natural, the resort does actually offer free wireless Internet.

Guests can also use their equipped kitchens to cook their own meal, perhaps the fish caught on a trip earlier that day.
