Gay Xcalak

Xcalak, Quintana Roo
Mexico

Xcalac, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Located on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, the small village of Xcalak is renowned for its excellent diving and fishing. It is remotely located 250 miles south of Cancun at the southernmost tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, in the coastal region called Costa Maya, where the second largest barrier reef in the world follows the coastline from Cozumel to Belize. Xcalab is so close to Belize that English is spoken fluently by many, but Spanish is still the predominant language. Time has forgotten this remote area but Xcalak is what many dream about in a tropical paradise vacation and the unspoiled reef is a divers, snorkelers, kayakers, and fisherman dream come true.

Xcalak has very few gay and lesbian hotels, inns, guesthouses and resorts. However, there are a small number of gay friendly hotels, inns, guesthouses and resorts dotted along the coast that range in price and amenities offered to meet the budget and tastes of the most gay and lesbian travelers.

Most visitors land at the Cancun Airport and rent a car for the journey to Xcalak. The drive to Xcalak takes over 5 hours. If you have arrived late in the afternoon, consider staying overnight in Cancun, or Playa del Carmen.

You will be hard pressed to find telephones, a newspaper from the US, gift shops or dancing in Xcalak. Driving is the preferred method of transportation but fill up first before the long haul down here! Gas is available on a good day but there are no gas stations, and don't be surprised if the locals check you out as you pass. There just aren't that many tourists around. People here are laid back, friendly and happy to see new faces.
The mangrove waterways of Bacalar Chico, just south of Xcalak between Mexico and Belize, are home to many varieties of birds and fish. Bird Island is a popular destination for bird watchers visiting this area, and anglers will seldom see any competition from others for coveted fish like permit, tarpon and bonefish.

So, for the gay and lesbian traveler looking for a laid back, off the beaten track and relaxed vacation where nature is key and the sea a magnet, then Xcalak, Quintana Roo, Mexico has much to offer.
