“The Mayan Riviera is home to lavish resorts and some of the finest flats fishing on the planet. Unexplored lagoons, saltwater crocodiles and ultra-skinney water cannot keep Trapper Rudd and Daniel Randall from deciphering the secrets of the Mayan lagoons and finding fish. The tropical resort of Costa de Cocos serves as base camp as these two go on a “fish fact-finding mission” in search of new water (and fish) by kayak.”

16 Cabanas, Restaurant and Full Bar…. Xcalak’s largest Resort, and with the best rates.

The Xcalak Reef National Marine Park (Parque Nacional Arrecifes de Xcalak) is visible from our front yard and little more than a stone’s throw away. The reef diving is exceptional, a short 5 to 20 minute boat ride takes you to the several dive sites. With our Dive Masters you will experience walls, canyons, chimneys, “blue holes,” incredible views of coral, fans, sponges, turtles, eels, rays, and a variety of tropical fish. There is something to explore at every depth, whether a beginner or expert, everyone is amazed. Take your diving experience to another level with our on-site instruction; from a first scuba experience, add specialty courses, all the way up to Dive Master. At secluded Cocos, it’s the best way to learn to dive, with the beautiful Caribbean and personalized instruction.

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.

Costa de CocosLeaving 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. You will see our large sign, turn right and park.
