We spent 1 day at the Costa Cocos. On arrival we were a bit disappointed by the fact that there is no beach as you would find most places along the Maya Riviera. It's well signposted to find your way to the camp from the highway - finding your way back is another thing. The grounds are immaculately kept, a...

Thank you Francesco for sharing your comments, suggestions, and wonderful photos. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed snorkeling with us, and our friendly staff made your time with us most enjoyable.

I fished five full days in April. Fantastic fishery, excellent guides, wonderfullly attentive service and great homemade food. The bar is great after a long day on the water. You will chill here without air conditioning. You will leave your creature comfort cares and woes behind. You will get into this non-scene whether fly fishing or diving. You will not...

Thank you Tom. The aspects you enjoyed most at Costa de Cocos and Xcalak are the very ones that motivated my return.

We boys were determined to find another epic fishing location. Costa de Cocos just might be it. The rooms and grounds are focused on fishing and not luxury. If you don;t mind lack of air conditioning and rustic accommodations this place will do fine. What the resort lacks in amenities it gains in service. The people here are top notch,...

Thank you Caljang for your comments and suggestions. What you say is true, we are a bit rustic, while priding ourselves on our level of service. While primarily a fishing resort, we also take guests snorkeling, scuba diving, on boat tours to see Bird Island and the surrounding area (shallows and mangroves of Chetumal Bay). On our boat tours a...

Had an absolutely wonderful time. This lodge is rustic, no A/C, so if you're looking for the lap of luxury you'll be happier somewhere else. But if you're looking for an end of the road type place with beauty to spare and really super people, I recommend Costa De Coco's for fishing, and diving. We were there to fish and...

Linda, thank you for your kind comments, they are greatly appreciated. To visit Costa de Cocos is like traveling back in time to what Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel must have been like many many years ago. I first visited the nearby town of Xcalak, a year ago, because I wanted to experience something different, having been scuba diving...

Reviewed 6 July 2012

This place is extremely ¨tired¨although it appears some renovations are in progress. It is strictly for fly fishing or ocean fishing people...the beach per say is un-swimable, only other alternative is off a 50 metre rickety dock...place invested with mosquitos......over priced even for low season compared to hotels up the coast i.e. Mahualal

Thank you for your valuable feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We are continually repairing and updating our facilities. True, we do not have sandy beaches, but a natural shoreline, which serves as a natural fish nursery, and shore bird sanctuary. I've just walked the dock and found it sturdy, with shiny nails indicating it was recently repaired. Our room rates...

We wanted to visit Xcalak because we'd heard that the snorkeling was very good. After researching we knew that we'd be staying in a very rustic place and were looking forward to it. We had planned to stay 5 nights but only stayed 3. The food and service in the restaurant/bar was excellent and so reasonbly priced. We were somewhat...

The restaurant at Cost de Cocos is open to the public, and we have eaten there twice. We happened to have pizza both times, although there is much more on the menu than pizza, and the food at the other tables looked quite good & the people that I spoke with spoke well of it. The price was very reasonable,...

I spent a week at Costa de Cocos just before thanksgiving. The accommodations are very clean, quiet and comfortable...also quaint. The fishing was simply put....just great......so much water and so few boats...lots of options in terms of places and species. If you are looking for great value and exceptional service....this is the place.

We stayed at Costa de Cocos in April of 2011 and had a great experience. We were the only divers there along with a group of fishermen. The cabanas were comfortable and clean and the food at the restaurant was great. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Would definitley recommend this as a place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Costa de Cocos is about immersing yourself in nature, while relaxing in a hammock suspended under palm trees, enjoying an ice cold beverage on our patio, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, traveling along the coast in a kayak, or touring the surrounding landscape on foot, observing our local flora and fauna. From our shore you will observe numerous juvenile fish in the shallows, while multiple species of shorebirds feed along the coast. All you hear is the gentle roar of waves breaking on the nearby reef, all you feel is the warm sun and a gentle breeze blowing across your skin. You are surrounded by turquoise waters and dense jungle and mangroves. No skyscrapers, crowds, or cell phones.Costa de Cocos offers a truly unique experience on the frontier of Mexico. Our environmentally friendly resort has much to offer those who seek to experience life off the beaten path. We are located within the Xcalak Reef National Marine Park (Parque Nacional Arrecifes de Xcalak). The closest gas station and ATM are 30 miles (50 km) away, and the closest sizable town, Chetumal, is a distant 130 miles (200 km). Power is provided by the sun, with a generator backup.No square concrete rooms here, you will stay in a private Mayan-style beach bungalow with attached bathroom and shower. You will dine in our shore-front restaurant and bar, with wood decor and thatched roof.During your stay you can go fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, experience guided bird tours, kayak along the coast, visit Mayan ruins, travel to nearby towns and museums, and visit Belize. We are located five hours south of Cancun and three hours north of Chetumal. Belize and Ambergris Caye are located only a few short miles to the south.We have a wireless Internet connection, but no cell or land-line phone service. The nearby village of Xcalak offers very little in the way of shopping and nightlife. If you are looking for sandy beaches, shopping, and an active night life, it it best not to choose us. ... more   less
