Stayed at Casa Abeja in Chan Chemuyil from May 10-18th. I couldn't have been more pleased! The photos from the website were very accurate, and it wasn't too hard to find if you pay close attention to directions. We enjoyed having a full size fridge, stove, etc. We truly enjoyed having our own little piece of paradise, and we spent many nights on the rooftop area relaxing and watching the sunset. I know exactly what other travelers mean now by "I love coming home to Casa Abeja!" My cousin was married at Gran Bahia Tulum and I am so thankful I chose to stay at Casa Abeja rather than a huge resort with a bunch of people. Being able to drive to Xcacel beach within 5 minutes was awesome. Xcacel beach was one of the most serene, beautiful beaches I have ever seen, and NO ONE was there!!! No wonder turtles come to lay their eggs here. The cenotes (or natural springs) were one of the highlights of our trip. It was so wonderful to jump into the cool refreshing waters of the beach cenote (or springs located right off Xcacel beach). My favorite area in Chan Chemuyil was definitely the large cenote / springs called Xunan-ha. We brought our snorkels and saw an amazing variety of freshwater fish and aquatic life. Jen answered every question I had before, during, and after our stay. I can't thank her enough! Plus, the location is close to Akumal, within a 10 minute drive, and there are incredible dining options and you can see the sea turtles, manta rays, and plenty of fish!

Casa Abeja was a great find in Chan Chemuyil, a quiet residential area close (10 minutes) to Akumal beaches and a great base to access Tulum ruins and Tulum town from. Having a full kitchen was important as it let us keep a pattern similar to how we operate at home with two teens. Staying at Chan Chemuyil in a little house is like being at the summer cabin by the lake. You are comfortable, there is room to unpack and relax, you have the amenities of home and proximity to the places you have come to see. It is the opposite of Cancun... you are free of the crowds and traffic and "Las Vegas" like chaos you find there. Here you feel closer to real Mexico while Chan Chemuyil offers the comforts a tourist welcomes at the end of a day of exploration: Air conditioning, cable & DVDs, peace & quiet, space, privacy. Jen was prompt and help full as we pulled together our plans. Casa Abeja was comfortable, clean, air conditioned, it was homey and helped keep us in "family mode". The patio on the roof is wonderful for relaxing with a cold drink and listening to birds or the breeze through the trees. Xcacel beach is beautiful, we shared it with four other people, if the beach is the primary reason for your trip, this one could could meet all your needs. Clean, soft sand, natural, turtles, fish, cenote, we explored others and didn't really need to. All this as a tropical depression built up... so even as it rained we found this a great trip and great place to stay. We loved the Yal Ku lagoon best as it seemed to be what places like Xel Ha must have been like before being developed. There is far more to explore than a week will allow for; turtles, ruins, monkeys, local people, food, shopping, snorkeling. We will be back and having more fun here in the future.

My wife and I and 2 young daughters(5 yr. and 10 months) spent 7 great days in Chan Chemuyil. We have been to this region of Mexico several times and were looking for someplace away from the hustle and bustle of Playa and Chan Chemuyil was what we needed. We rented a car for the first time and it was well worth it (and really needed). No problems with the police driving as some people report and since the coast is north and south you can't get lost. We spent 2 days at Xcacel beach, 2 at Tulum, 1 at Akumal, and another just driving around. It was always a joy to come "home" to Chan Chemuyil. Having a full kitchen, living/dinning room is a major plus with 2 young children. In fact my wife said will never stay in a hotel again. The ease and freedom of being in your own place is great. The town of Chan Chemuyil is real cute, but didn't see too many residents around, which i can understand since it is the low season. We did meet a guy (Kevin?) from N.J. who said, "I moved down and haven't looked back since." Kind of gives you an idea of how great it is. Was it hot? YEAH!!! but we always go down in August, so we knew what to expect. Just go to the beach during the day and turn on the AC at night. Also, we found the local cenote by accident one day and it was more amazing than the one we paid for the day before. If you love the beach and sun, then head on down. We will be back!!!

About: Hola y bienvenido! Xcacel is nearly a half mile crescent of pristine white sand and turquoise seas. The beach itself is a turtle sanctuary where you can view turtles hatching at night from May through October, and because of the preservation there it is an undeveloped hidden gem. Casa Abeja is located in the community of Chan Chemuyil, a quiet respite perfectly situated amongst all the attractions of the Riviera Maya.
The area offers amazing beaches and a vibrant culture. Within 5-10 minutes of Ak Kun you will find an array of fun filled sites to visit including Xcacel beach, Akumal Bay, Xel-Ha Ecopark, Yal Ku Lagoon, The Mayan Ruins of Tulum, Hidden Worlds zipline adventures, Dos Ojos Cenotes and Caverns, The Jungle Place Monkey Preserve, AkTun Chen Caves, Tulum beach, the pueblo of Chemuyil and SO MUCH MORE! You can find everything from seaside restaurants and upscale international fare to cheap, local authentic Mexican eateries. My personal favorites not to be missed are Pizzeria Leo’s and Loncheria El Parque in Chemuyil and Lucy’s shrimp tacos & ice cream and La Cueva Del Pescador in Akumal. At the latter you can get a fresh caught grouper entrée and refreshing margarita for less than $10 USD!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Abeja has a gated front and rear courtyard with a covered patio area and a rooftop deck. The community of Chan Chemuyil has 234 homes and is located a short walk across the street to Xcacel beach via a private gated path. There is also adequate parking at the beach if you prefer to drive over with your beach belongings. If you want to walk to the pueblo of Chemuyil at night for dinner or supplies, just bring a flashlight along.
