Ikal del Mar - Poetry of the Sea

Riviera Maya, Mexico

Looking onto the Carribean waters as they greet the powder white sands of the Rivera Maya, Xcalacoco timidly arises in a haven where Neruda, Dario, and Alberti appear in each detail creating Ikal del Mar, an exclusive place where the inspired poetry of the sea can be enjoyed.

Ikal del Mar is a secluded sea-side luxury resort carved from the primitive Mayan jungle near the small village of Xcalacoco in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Twenty-nine private luxury villas each with private pool are carefully constructed with natural wood and stones indigenous to the area.

Our culinary staff creates unique dishes with Mediterranean, Asian, and Mexican influences. Complementing our excellent food are first-class wines with notable French, Spanish, and Italian offerings.
