El Cuyo house description

Tana Pepem, or 'House of Butterflies' in Mayan, is a spacious beachfront house ideal for families or friends wanting to relax and enjoy nature. Only 2.5 hours from Cancun, it is easily accessible from its international airport. Perfect for long meals, beach walks, shell seeking, bird watching, and dreamy sunsets.

El Cuyo is a small, non-touristic fishing village in the uppermost tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, within the natural reserve of Río Lagartos, close to several Mayan ruins, cenotes and colonial towns. We recommend renting a car in order to tour the area and feel the culture. It is a very safe and quiet town that allows visitors to witness and live rural Mexico. All restaurants serve local cuisine, seafood being the specialty!

The house is built so that all rooms have a view of the ocean. Kitchen and living room look out to the outdoor beachfront terrace equipped with lounge bed and hammocks. The downstairs bedroom is in the back, but built on a higher level with indoor ocean view windows. Upstairs bedroom is completely private with its own oversized terrace with lounge bed, dressing room and bathroom.

There are many fun activities at El Cuyo, including swimming, tours to see flamingos, salines, shark-whales (July to Sept), fishing, ATV rentals, and many other outdoor activities.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: Yahaira and Gerardo live in Cancun but sought out the perfect beach in the area to get away from all the hussle and worries and just RELAX. We built this house in 2007 and go every chance we get! Our 4-year old daughter Andrea is a big fan.

                              Why the Owner Chose El Cuyo:
                              We've been visiting the area since more than 10 years ago, since good friends already had a vacation home here. We love the place and as soon as the first opportunity opened, we bought an oceanfront lot and Yahaira's best friend designed the house entirely to our taste and needs. It's good to know arquitects! We built the house in 2007.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Relaxation. El Cuyo es a place where you can definitely get away from it all- it's another reality. Whether you choose to stay at home all day and just lounge around, or you decide to be adventurous in the nearby natural reserve, you definitely RELAX.
