Swim in Xcacel beach

What makes Xcacel beach so special is the fact that it is both a sea turtle sanctuary and has a beautiful cenote just steps away from the beach.

The local association in charge of protecting the species, Flora, Fauna & Culture, cordon off the area to ensure that no one steps over the buried sea turtle nests. 

You will be asked to enter the cenote in small groups and you will be able to stay there for 20 minutes.

The beach is paradise, white pinkish sand, extra transparent water, fish swimming right there with you. 

You're not supposed to take food but most do, but PLEASE take your rubbish with you.

Important: this beach has open and closing hours (even though all beaches in Mexico are public).
