    Xcalak Facts

    • Money and Banking: top
      There are no banks in Xcalak. You should do your banking in Cancun or Playa del Carmen. South of Tulum most places will NOT take credit cards. The closest bank is in Felipe Carillo Puerto that includes an ATM machine. Currently (2005) only Hotel Tierra Maya and Playa Son Risa take credit cards. Cash or travelers checks are the common rule.
    • Temperature: top
      The difference between winter and summer temperature is relatively small, about 5 degrees C. The maximum is around 28 degrees C and the minimum is around 23 degrees C.
    • Power and Electricity: top
      The town of Xcalak is connected to a power grid. Electricity is generated for several hours each day by a diesel powered plant, but is not extended to any facility located north of the village. Each one of the hotels/resorts is generating its own electricity by virtue of solar panels or wind mills.

    • Money: top
      Money can be changed in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Felipe Carillo Puerto and Chetumal. However in Felipe Carillo Puerto you won't find a money machine.

      In most hotels in Xcalak you can pay with pesos as well as dollars. Not many places accept credit cards.
    • Fresh Water: top
      Fresh water, as is common in remote, tropical locations, is a precious commodity and gathered mostly by rain collected on the roofs of individual buildings, channeled into underground cisterns and ultimately pumped into each room.
    • Climate: top
      During the fall , tropical storms, called hurricanes, often blow into the area, and during the winter and spring there is a constant battle between the hot and dry counter trade winds and polar air masses called nortes (north winds).
    • Distances: top
      The distance from Xcalak / Mahahual (Majahual) to the following cities is:

      Mahahual (Majahual) 55 Km
      Limones 115 Km
      Bacalar 163 Km
      Chetumal 193 Km
      Felipe Carrillo Puerto 186 Km
      Tulum 180 Km
      Playa Del Carmen 343 Km
      Puerto Morelos 370 Km
