Most people will fly to Cancun and rent a car. It is also possible to take the ADO bus to Mahahual and either take the Caribe bus or taxi to Xcalak. However, depending on where you are coming from, it may also be worth your while to check on the airfares to Merida, which is only 20 km farther from Xcalak than Cancun.

 

If you're driving south, there is a bypass around Felipe Carrillo Puerto that is 24 pesos and will save you time. You can get gas at the Pemex just passed the turn to Xcalak going towards Mahahual.

 

Just south of the town of Limones, take the road toward the east and Mahahual.

 

Just before the turn to Xcalak at Km 50.8, there is a tope. It is not marked very well and it is a bad one. Come to a complete stop to cross. Just past the tope, turn right to Xcalak or go a little further for gas.

 

There may be a military check point at any point along the way. Just be courteous and they will let you pass. If they want to check the car. Turn off the motor and get out. They might ask you to open the trunk.
