Fodor's Review

About 10 km south of Akumal, X'cacel Beach (also written Xca-Cel), has thick powdery sand and a nearby cenote that can be accessed through a jungle path to your right. To reach the beach from Carretera 307, turn at the dirt road that runs between Chemuyil and Xel-Há. The route is blocked by a guard who will charge you $2 to enter. Follow the dirt road that spills onto the white, sandy beach. From May through November, this area is reserved for turtle nesting. One good

resource for information is the website: www.locogringo.com/research/beaches/xcacel.html. Amenities: restrooms. Best for: snorkeling; solitude.
