Xcalacoco, The Hidden Jewel Of Playa Del Carmen

18 March, 2023

Xcalacoco, whose name means “Twin Coconuts”, was once a commercial port of the Mayan Civilization where vestiges of ancient constructions are still found today, located in the north of Playa del Carmen.

Xcalacoco beach shares the beauty, tranquility and charm of the other destinations in the Riviera Maya but it is not as crowded as it has only one access and is outside of the busiest areas in the center of the city.

Therefore, its tranquility is highly valued by travelers who seek to disconnect from everything.

Xcalacoco is a quiet beach ideal to enjoy with family, partner or friends.

In addition to being Blue Flag certified, it has a charming little dock where open-air weddings often take place with the exceptional Caribbean Sea in the background.

The sea is calm, almost without waves, and a short distance from the beach you can access a reef, to snorkel.

Surrounding and with access to the Beach we have Hotels, Resorts, Restaurants, Beach Clubs, Water Sports, Spa Stalls, Massages and Crafts as well as Residential areas.

It is a place where you can enjoy nature where you can see seabirds, owls, deer monkeys.

The protected mangrove area is home to frogs, anole lizards and iguanas that inhabit tree branches.

Today it has become a niche for tourists and residents seeking a quiet lifestyle away from traffic and crowds.

So it is very common to see people exercising, hiking, couples walking or families enjoying a picnic, which is why we call it the Hidden Jewel of Playa del Carmen.
