A trip to Xcalak, Mexico, in pictures


A new day, full of possibilities!
We took a small bus to Xcalak, a village south of Mahahual.

The road was newly paved for some of the 45 minute ride.

The bus stop was nondescript, and beautiful.

Some of the sights around the village:

Only one place in town was open for breakfast.

Silvia’s is a cute place, with beach decor and a working well inside.

No prices on the menu – only eggs and meat advertised.

But the cook made me (a pescatarian) quesadillas and fries.

Next, a long, hot walk to a beach bar that sells craft brew.

No stores here – people put up signs for what they need to buy.

Eventually, a mirage in the desert for my husband:

And then, finally, the beach bar at Costa de Cocos!

A cold, craft brew – not easy to find in this part of the world.

Next on tap – a porter! Just look at that smile!

I enjoyed cold soda and the view.

The coconut shrimp is highly recommended, and we agree.

We hitched a ride back (thank heavens!) and cooled off on the dock.

Everyone was friendly, even the military.

Gracias por un buen dia, Xcalak!
