Location of Costa de Cocos
Costa de Cocos is in the small fishing village of Xcalak, Quintana Roo,
Located 250 miles South Of Cancun, easily rent a car at the Airport, and follow these Directions.
Leaving the Cancun Airport you will be heading East and come to Highway 307, take the turn Right/South towards Playa del Carmen / Tulum. Highway 307 from Cancun to Playa del Carmen is a busy tourist area, traffic will decrease after Tulum.
Continue South on Highway 307. To Tulum ( if it is getting late in the day consider staying the night in Tulum). 100 km/62 miles south of Tulum is Felipe Carrillo Puerto, with 2 Pemex Gas Stations, 1 north of town, and 1 in the center of town that has an ATM.
Continue South on Hwy 307 about one hour, 3 km past the town of Limones is a well marked Left/East turn to Mahahual & Xcalak.
The turn off to Mahahual & Xcalak is the first Left/East turn, 3 km past the
town of Limones. You will approach a large T intersection with a small store. The road is fairly
straight and in great shape, at 18 km there is a severe curve, please watch for this and slow down...then at
51 km there is a tope/speed bump in the road.
A little after the large speed bump is the turn off for Xcalak. You will see a large Costa de Cocos sign, turn Right/South...But if you need gas, the Pemex Gas Station in Mahahual is straight ahead 1/2 mile. You drive past the Xcalak turn-off and go straight ahead to buy gas, and then reverse back to the turn-off, and Turn Left/South to Xcalak. Follow the paved 'Jungle Road' south 60 km/38 miles. At the end of the road, you are at a T and a Stop Sign, go Left/East about 2 kilometers into Xcalak Village. As you enter the village drive slowly straight through to the ocean. Turn Left/North along the Beach Road, the ocean is on your right, continue north thru town past the lighthouse and town pier. Turn LEFT at the 2 story white building that is the Port Captain's Office, painted in large letters on the building, (if you miss that turn you'll come to a dead end in about 2 blocks, and have to go back), then turn at the next street RIGHT, you will then go over the small town bridge. Cocos is less than 1/2 mile North of the bridge. You will see our large sign, turn right and park.
