                  Car: Necessary

                  'The Beach House at Tampalam' - Take first left off of Mahahual Road pass the Pemex gas station. Go approx. 42 kilometers to T in road. Take left, house on right, 3 kilometers in.

                  There is a Pemex gas station on Mahahual Road which offers some groceries. Just a short distance into Mahahual from this gas station, you will find restaurants, bars, plenty of shops, beach side massage tables, pharmacies, medical clinic and many other beach front activities.

                  There is a very quaint fishing village, approximately 21 miles north of this rental property. Beautiful scenic ride with light house close to this village. One can have a delicious fresh fish luncheon with local natives. Pick out your desired fish and they will cook it for you, anyway you want it! Also, on this beach road, there is an old ship wreck site that many frequent and go snorkeling there.

                  Definitely bring your binoculars and camera to capture the vibrant colored birds and flowering shrubs in this ecological park of Sian Ka an, right outside the home. Watch your pelican species birds dive into the water to capture their prey. If you come at the right time of the year, you will see the large sea turtle migration to these shorelines.

                  Just a short walk on the beach and you will find some great snorkeling. Even without snorkel gear, you will spot various aquatic life.

                  If you are a collector of Sea Beans and shells, this is the place for you!

                  From the open roof top terrace, you will see some of the finest star constellations, along with gorgeous sun rises and sunsets!

                  This area offers you the second largest barrier reef in the world, called Banco Chinchorro. You can hire a guide or take a boat trip out to the reef to do snorkeling or scuba diving. Also available in Mahahual, are boats that will take you deep sea fishing. When you go deep sea fishing, they provide you with beverages, food and tackle gear. All you have to do, is show up!

                  The village of Mahahual offers all type of water sports,.......

                  wave runners, water skiing, wind surfing, kayaking, etc. If you wish to ride a horse on the beach, you can do this too.

                  If you plan in advance, you can rent a jeep, dune buggy or golf cart to explore this tropical area.

                  Drive approximately 1 1/2 hours to the village of Bacalar which offers a fresh water lake with many cenotes to explore. These cenotes are famous underwater caves. Drive an additional 1/2 hour south of Bacalar, and visit the Capitol City of Quintana Roo, which is called Chetumal. Chetumal is a typical Mexican city from back in the 1970's. They will not even look at you as a tourist and everybody goes about their way. Chetumal offers great restaurants, wonderful shopping, local architecture and traditions. They also have many retailers that you are familiar with in the states ( Walmart, Sam's Club, Auto Zone, etc.) On your way to Bacalar/Chetumal, you can stop at several road side stands and pick out your own fresh pineapple for one dollar.

                  If one likes to shop, just before the city of Chetumal, there is a free zone for shopping. This free zone allows you not to pay taxes on any purchase. This area is located between Mexico and Belize and very easy to get to.

                  Another all day trip would be to the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza which would definitely be worth your while. There are other ruins closer, but none compare to Chichen Itza. We have been to these ruins and many others, and this by far, is the nicest.

                  On your way to or from this rental property, you could stay overnight in Playa de Carmen and see the ruins at Tulum on the Carribean Sea. Playa de Carmen offers you the finest restaurants and shopping. We can help you with reservations at a hotel in Playa de Carmen in order to obtain a discounted rate.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are originally from upstate New York, then we moved to North Carolina. We wanted a winter home and we decided on Mexico being that I have many relatives here. Our first home on this property, was damaged by Hurricane Dean in 2007. We then decided to design our own home that would be hurricane proof. This existing home took over 3 years to build and we achieved, what we feel, is the ideal home for this area. We love our privacy and the beautiful beach of this area. We actually selected the beach before the property. My wife wanted a nice, white sandy beach area with calm waters. We initially cleaned the entire beachfront ourselves. We have personally planted many shrubs and coconut trees. We still have memories of our original home from the colored block wall that remains on one side of the property that used to surround our home. Since we are the type of people that like our space and privacy, we now presently live in Big Sky Country.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mahahual:
                  The beach, privacy and climate. This will be easily answered once you visit this property yourself! We had a couple visit us from New York and when they arrived, and had been there a few days, they mentioned to us that they had never been to paradise before, but now they were experiencing it first hand.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Having a beach to yourself! Walking the beach hand in hand collecting sea beans and shells. A great time to walk the beach is around 4PM to avoid the direct hot sun and enjoy the oncoming sunsets. This is such a pleasant time of day.
