Property description


A) Location

The house (6/7 people) is 40 km from Cancun (30 km from the airport) and 35 km from Playa del Carmen, 120 km from Tulum, 200 km of Valladolid, Chichen Itza 250 km and 480 km Mérida.
It is a few km from the village of Puerto Morelos and its white sandy beach and cenotes in the region.
A small path "sascab" (kind of beaten earth consolidated) leads to the house, then you enter the area of ​​the jungle, with its wild orchids, multicolored butterflies, fabulous birds ...
By taking this path, you will have the feeling of being in a lost world, the world of the ancient Maya. Do not stop: at the end of the road is happiness!
At the entrance to the property, you will find a rustic gate, and a palm-thatched house: the house guards. They will open and take you to the main house, in front of which you can park your vehicle.
Pets are welcome.

B) Description

The house has a total area of ​​220 m2. In the main part, you will have a fitted kitchen opening onto two lounges and a dining room. A door at the back opens onto the outdoor barbecue.

You can just enjoy the white sand beach and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, Puerto Morelos and elsewhere throughout the Riviera Maya (140 km coastline between Cancun and Tulum).
The reef of Puerto Morelos (protected ecological zone) is home to many species of fish in bright colors: no need to take a tour, the first reefs are 150 meters from the edge and full of specimens of all kinds (eagle rays, barracudas etc.) which can be seen with a mask and snorkel.

If you like diving, go to Playa del Carmen or better on the island of Cozumel. The seabed there are grand.

If you prefer fresh water try in "cenotes" you will discover crystal clear water, stalactites and stalagmites, bats etc. On the road between Puerto Morelos Leona Vicario (the one that leads to the house), there are cenotes every 4/5 km or less between km 13 and km 20 "7 bocas", "Lucero verde" "La Noria" etc. They all have their charm! We recommend the "Gran Cenote" near Tulum on the Tulum-Coba road and the cenote La Noria, lost in the jungle (km 20).

If you want to swim with the sharks (harmless), visit Holbox Island, northeast of Cancun (road Mérida). If you prefer dolphins, Puerto Aventuras, south of Playa del Carmen will seduce you. A few kilometers further, in Akumal, you can swim with turtles!

Another site to visit Isla Mujeres (Island of Women). Take the boat to Puerto Juarez (fishing port of Cancun) and not in the Hotel Zone or take an excursion by small fishing boat 5/6 (250 pesos per person per day, including meals). Go to the end of Playa Norte and swim with the fish, hundreds, reach between your legs!

Many theme parks are available: Xel-Ha (flora and fauna); X-Caret (Mexican folklore, past and present); X-Plor (aerial and aquatic activities). But beware, these parks are very expensive! Prefer "Selvatica" X-Plor: closer (19 km: 10 minutes from the house), plus family and a lot cheaper!

If you like history, visit course, Chichen Itza and Tulum, Coba also well known (set of small Mayan sites that can be visited on foot, by bicycle or tricycle taxis (hire locally). Follow the "Ruta Puc ', go to Uxmal, if you have the time (but beware, large distances and roads through villages filled with" topes "speed bumps outside the norm).
The cities of Valladolid and Merida will also offer their colonial charm. In Mérida, during the summer, free folk performances are held every night on the main square. The craftsmanship is cheaper than Cancun, take the opportunity to do there shopping!


If you like traditional Mexican food, avoid tourist restaurants of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, eat in the village of Puerto Morelos (not port) where you will find the same dishes three times cheaper. Do your shopping in small shops (enjoy pineapples, mangoes, guavas, papayas, watermelon) and discover the "tacos, enchiladas, tamales" and other snacks Mexicans. Attention to the "chile habanero" (local peppers), it is very strong!

If you like to go clubbing, or enjoy a drink in the evening in a lively area, the cities of Cancun (very expensive Hotel Zone) and Playa del Carmen, more user-friendly, open their doors. The port of Puerto Morelos is street theater performances on Friday nights during the summer. Many cafés stay open late.

For strong emotions, you can do the zip line to "SELVATICA" (km 19 of the "Ruta de los cenotes", 5 minutes from the house) or hire a quad (at km 20) to go to the "cenote La Noria "through the jungle.

In the port of Puerto Morelos, you can rent bicycles to walk along the beach and visit "Crococun" little small but very interesting zoo (crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, spiders etc.), especially for children.


The nearest international airport: Cancun.

- Car rental: at the airport but reserve from France, Opodo or E-bookers (pricing, prefer Hertz or Avis Europcar, better. The cars are essentially the same). Make it around the car before you take it in hand.
- Bus: from the airport of Cancun, there are buses that take you to the bus station in Cancun (40 pesos per person), in the city center. From the bus station, buses (clean, comfortable, air-conditioned) take you throughout Mexico.
- Individual Taxis: Do not take a taxi to the airport, it costs an arm and a head and they do not have a taximeter! In the city, a race costs about 25 pesos but you must agree with the driver before getting in his vehicle. For the hotel zone, count 80 to 100 pesos.
- Collective taxis: it is the fastest and cheapest way to travel from one city to another. It's everywhere and they will stop almost anywhere. There are even those who go to the center of Puerto Morelos (near the public park) and take you to km10. 5 of "ruta de los cenotes"!

Prefer "casas de cambio" banks (interesting prices).
To withdraw money, prefer distributors within banks (safer).
To pay by credit card, do so only in the major retailers (Soriana, Comercial Mexicana etc.)

- A Cancun Market 28 (a bit expensive) or 23 (cheaper but a little dirty) open daily
- A Playa del Carmen 5a Avenida (5th Avenue), expensive but with quality craftsmanship
- A Puerto Morelos pettes shops in the port
- A Merida in the craft market downtown
- A Tulum in the city, along the main avenue
