Photos don't quite capture how beautiful this place is... You keep driving wondering if it was worth it to head this far south in the Yucatan but as soon as you arrive, you know that you made the right decision. The rooms overlook a long wooden dock that invites you out into the water. The reef --about a mile off...

From the moment you arrive at Casa Paraiso, it was clear that the owners had put lots of love and care into this adorable BnB on the coast of Xcalak. They were warm and friendly and the rooms were recently updated with modern amenities. The entire place is extremely eco friendly and self sustaining. The breakfasts in the morning were...

Xcalak is quite remote, so amenities are on the light side. That said, Ben and Esther run a warm, welcoming B&B that was fun to visit. Wonderful breakfasts, a beautiful setting, and they provide plenty of local info. We'd be glad to return.

My friend and I stayed for 4 nights during Thanksgiving week at Ben & Esther's hideaway, situated within the boundaries of a National Park. The rooms (with kitchen area) are cheerful and very clean. Generous balconies with comfortable deck chairs on the 2nd floor look out onto the playa and ocean, as do the 2 downstairs rooms with patios. We...

We stayed at the Reef House, which is next door to Casa Paraiso, also managed by Ben and Esther. Our stay was terrific. Ben and Esther are amazing hosts who maintain both Casa Paraiso and Reef House beautifully. The house was very clean as are the grounds of both properties.

My husband and I stayed for a week, and I have only good things to say about it. The location is great, the rooms are lovely. The bathrooms are beautiful. Everything is kept spotlessly clean.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 glorious nights! Ben and Esther could not have been more helpful from the minute we got there.
