Xcacel Beach, Riviera Maya
(4.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Before Riviera Maya became a hot spot for tourism, its beaches looked like Xcacel Beach. This stretch of coast remains unspoiled, undeveloped, and a home to marine life. Each summer, dozens of sea turtles travel to this slice of paradise to lay their eggs in the soft sand, so if you visit in the spring and summer months, give raised mounds of sand a wide berth. A local sanctuary works to protect the eggs and requests donations from visitors to fund the program. Take your snorkeling gear to explore the small coral reef on the north end of the beach, if the sea is calm. Arrange to visit Xcacel Beach and other attractions in Soliman Bay using our Soliman Bay vacation generator.

  • Beautiful beach with few people, there is a cenote precious and small walk to get there, there is abundant vegetation and various animals are! There is only a small sign at the entrance so you have to be very careful on the road
