Tomorrow, Saturday February, 27, 2016 is Mahahual night at Costa de Cocos Resort in Xcalak. There will be live music by Dave Gauci from Canada, and for people from Mahahual, all rooms will be half price. If you have never been to Costa de Cocos or Xcalak. now is your chance.
Set among coconut palms along a serene and secluded stretch of the Caribbean, our resort is located at the ‘end-of-the-road’ less traveled. The Yucatan Jungle, rich with wildlife, is our backyard. The Xcalak Reef National Marine Park, with all the exotic wonders of the Caribbean Sea, is our front yard. The resort itself has a rich Mayan cultural charm. When you are looking for the ultimate destination to scuba dive, fish, kayak, explore, or just relax in the Caribbean Tradewinds to the sound of surf breaking on the reef offshore, Costa de Cocos is your personal paradise.
At Costa de Cocos your comfort is very important to us. Our private cabanas have traditional exterior stonework, exotic tropical woods, native thatch palapa roofs, ceiling fans, and louvered windows all around that capture the cooling Caribbean breeze. Each cabana has its own private bathroom & shower, fresh hot water, and daily maid service. Our fully stocked bar and cold cervezas are available anytime. Our large Breakfast Buffet is included with your room price.
The Restaurant is open everyday, offering many dishes with a tasty Caribbean influence, and of course Fresh Seafood. Our Restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating that overlooks the Caribbean Sea and Xcalak Reef. After dinner visit with us, other guests, and perhaps even some of the locals at our charming bar.
Our Menu includes Fresh Ceviches and Fish Tacos, the ever popular Mango-Lobster Pizza, and Four Course Seafood Dinners, and is a hit with guests and locals alike.
Location of Costa de
Costa de Cocos is in the small fishing village of Xcalak, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Located 250 miles South Of Cancun. You can easily rent a car at the Airport, and follow these Directions.
Leaving the Cancun Airport, you will be heading East and come to Highway 307; take the turn Right/South towards Playa del Carmen / Tulum. Highway 307 from Cancun to Playa del Carmen is a busy tourist area; traffic will decrease after Tulum.
Continue South on Highway 307 to Tulum (if it is getting late in the day consider staying the night in Tulum). 100 km/62 miles south of Tulum is Felipe Carrillo Puerto, with 2 Pemex Gas Stations, 1 north of town, and 1 in the center of town that has an ATM.
Continue South on Hwy 307 about one hour. 3 km past the town of Limones is a well marked Left/East turn to Mahahual & Xcalak.
The turn off to Mahahual & Xcalak is the first Left/East turn, 3 km past the town of Limones. You will approach a large T intersection with a small store. The road is fairly straight and in great shape. At 18 km there is a severe curve; please watch for this and slow down…then at 51 km there is a tope/speed bump in the road.
A little after the large speed bump is the turn off for Xcalak. You will see a large Costa de Cocos sign. Turn Right/South…But if you need gas, the Pemex Gas Station in Mahahual is straight ahead 1/2 mile. You drive past the Xcalak turn-off and go straight ahead to buy gas, and then reverse back to the turn-off, and Turn Left/South to Xcalak. Follow the paved ‘Jungle Road’ south 60 km/38 miles. At the end of the road, you are at aT and a Stop Sign. Go Left/East about 2 kilometers into Xcalak Village. As you enter the village drive slowly straight through to the ocean. Turn Left/North along the Beach Road, the ocean is on your right, continue north through town past the lighthouse and town pier. Turn LEFT at the two-story white building that is the Port Captain’s Office, painted in large letters on the building (if you miss that turn you’ll come to a dead-end in about 2 blocks, and have to go back), then turn at the next street RIGHT. You will then go over the small town bridge. Cocos is less than 1/2 mile North of the bridge.
