Xcalak Mexico – For a summer tourism
It is summer time. Time for your vacation, something you have looked forward to all year. Everyone goes to Hawaii, The Caribbean, or Las Vegas but you want to go somewhere no one has heard of but is tourist friendly. When your friends ask where you are going on vacation, tell that you have decided to go to Xcalak Mexico. Most will scratch their heads, wondering where this place is, or if it is even a real place. Rest assured Xcalak Mexico is a real place. It is a southern town in the state of Quintana Roo. To Belize, a Central America country, it is just a seven-mile boat ride or 4.5 hours south of Cancun. Xcalak has the feel and look of Belize and Mexico rolled into one.
Although Spanish is the predominant language, English is spoken fluently. Xcalak Mexico is a remote, less refine area of the Caribbean coast. It has the natural beauty below and above the waterline. Now that you have decided to visit Xcalak Mexico, the first thing you need to do is secure lodging. There are several nice hotels/resorts to choose from in Xcalak, most of them ocean side.
The best hotel in Xcalak is the Balamku where the rooms are spacious and comfortable with native hardwood furniture and decorated with Guatemalan textiles. All of the rooms have a ceiling fan and louvered glass widows that open to let in the sea breeze. In addition, you get a full breakfast and use of kayaks that is included with your daily rent. Rooms at this hotel have rates from $75 for single to $105 double. When you choose to take your vacation depends on what the rate will be.
While you are there on vacation, make sure that you go scuba diving in the cobalt blue waves of the Mexican Caribbean that has warm clear water, colorful tropical fish, sea turtles, and beautiful reefs. If you prefer to visit land tourist spots, then you need to check out the Mayan Ruins. When you travel to the Yucatan Peninsula Mexico this is where you will find the Maya archaeological sites.
There are also Eco Parks, which are adventure and nature theme parks, to visit. You can take the Aktun Chen Dry Cave and Jungle Tour, Xaman Ha Aviary, and Xcaret. The Rio Secreto is one attraction that you must see and do. Here you can walk and swim through a maze of chambers in a cave. The Cenotes is one of the unique features of the Yucatan’s geology and is the liquid life of Quuinta Roo. The cenotes are natural oasis pools in the jungle and is fed freshwater by underground rivers and submerged caves.
Of course, you cannot go to Xcalak without going deep-sea fishing. You can rent charter boats for half and full day tours. You can go deep-sea fishing to try to catch Sailfish, White or Blue Marlin, and Tuna, to name a few. You can also go fly-fishing if you get seasick for Bone, Tarpon, and Permit.
Even though some people have never heard of Xcalak Mexico, once you return and tell them of your awesome vacation, they will want to go also.
