The Xcalak National Park has a daily entrance fee ($64 pesos) and all visitors are required to purchase and wear a bracelet each day they use the Park. Those who are also fishing must purchase a Mexican fishing license available for one week (US$25), one month (US$37) or one year (US$50.) Xcalak National Park is a preserve and all fishing in the preserve is strictly catch and release. The park entrance and fishing license fees are not included in our prices below; we are happy put clients in touch with Park staff who can assist with bracelets and fishing licenses.
Those with plenty of lead time may use this link to purchase their Mexican fishing license in advance.
