From Mahahual we can also visit Xcalak Reef National Park, a beautiful marine reserve where abundant Elkhorn coral (a protected species), banks of tarpon up to two meters in length, nurse sharks, and so much more await. Xcalak offers scenic dives through unbelievable landscapes where caves and caverns filled with narrow passages and long swim throughs abound. Dolphins, whales and manatees are also sporadic visitors to these waters. If you are in Mahahual, a day excursion to Xcalak is not to be missed!!!
