Property description

Villa Caracol is a luxurious, oceanfront home on the Riviera Maya, the Caribbean coastline of Mexico. Walk into a bright, airy, open plan kitchen, living and dining room with views overlooking the ocean. Elegantly finished in marble, mosaic, granite surfaces and hardwoods, Villa Caracol offers you a unique holiday experience, exotic and romantic whilst retaining modern amenities and comfort.

Each of the four grand bedrooms has a sea-view balcony and marble clad ensuite bathroom. You have your own pool and the shared use of a second pool, your own elevated beach and a private roof terrace with Jacuzzi.

Villa Caracol offers tranquillity away from the usual busy beach holiday centres but close to the cosmopolitan, vibrant hubs of Cancun and Playa del Carmen and to the unspoiled fishing village of Puerto Morelos. The villa is located on a cul-de-sac beach road with little traffic and few others on the beach.
A welcoming array of basic food provisions will await you. Leo lives nearby and will greet you upon arrival and ensure that your stay is comfortable and problem free. Maid service is provided mid-week for week long stays.

Villa Caracol is a fully furnished vacation home rental. It is ideal for a group of singles and couples and large or multiple families. But it is also a lovely spot for a couple and price may be negotiable accordingly. This home is ideal for those wanting a quiet, self-service style vacation with a few trips to town for shopping and eating out at restaurants. You provide and cook your own food during your stay but you may also like to hire caterers to buy, cook and serve your food for some or all of your stay. Let us know if you might like this before your arrival.

Holidays here are easy. English is widely spoken. People are very warm and friendly. The systems are generally efficient and easy to negotiate though the pace is laid back and relaxed too. Crime in the Yucatán is much lower than in the UK.

ABOUT THE OWNERS:

We are Kate and Norbert, a British/Canadian couple who, with our two kids, have recently bought Villa Caracol having fallen in love with the Riviera Maya. Villa Caracol is perfect for us and we hope it is for you too. It is away from the high tempo of typical tourist resorts but within easy access of all amenities. It offers the perfect base for exploration of Mexican and Yucatán culture, the glorious natural features of mangroves, cenotes and beach, and the relaxation of a beach holiday.

THINGS TO DO

Villa Caracol

Relax at Villa Caracol; in the pools, on the roof-terrace, on the beaches at Villa Caracol or along the coast, both north and south within a five minutes walk. Have quiet time inside with TV, DVDs, internet and reading.

Puerto Morelos

The nearest village is Puerto Morelos, a charming fishing village which has been escaped the ravages of construction and tourism. Previously the centre for the production of gum for the US chewing gum market cultivated from the chicle, Puerto Morelos is now better know for having the second largest coral reef. This is protected by the National Marine Park and local commitment to preservation of the environment which has kept development of the area to a minimum. The original lighthouse leans askew since Hurricane Beulah in 1966.

Puerto Morelos has numerous restaurants, bars and stores. The fishing boats are moored along the seafront and local fishermen bring their catch to the pier

Take a course in Mexican Cooking (www.littelmexicancooking.com.mx) and join in yoga on the beach at 8.15 each morning. There are many yoga centres in Puerto Morelos.

Have a massage on the beach or make an appointment for the masseuse to come to your holiday home.

There is a variety of shops in and around the town square. Souvenir items, jewellery, and clothing are all available. The handicraft market shows and sells regional folk art, clothing, and crafts. View hammocks being made at one family’s craft booth.

Alma Libre Libros –the largest English-language bookstore on the coast holds thousands of English language books and is useful for guide books. Trade in your used books for credit. Open October – April.

Snorkelling – See the fantastic coral refs just offshore from Puerto Morelos. Hire a boat and guide from the various businesses in Puerto Morelos.

Diving – Explore the world’s second largest reef. Hire a boat and guide from the village of Puerto Morelos and float above the glorious corals, fish, sting rays and turtles.

Fishing – The fishing boats can pick you up form Villa Caracol. and take you for a few hours of deep sea fishing. You can catch barracuda, grouper, and billfish. Cook your catch at home in the evening.

Croco-Cun Zoo – At the touring from Highway 307 to Villa Caracol is the Croco-Cun Zoo with a collection of crocodiles and other indigenous animals . Offers immensely informative tours (available in English) and opportunities to hold baby crocs and feed the deer.

Close to Villa Caracol

Villa Caracol is an ideal base for further exploration.

From the highway to the coast, you will travel though peaceful mangroves full of herons and white ibises. At the coast, watch the pelicans flying overhead and diving for fish.

A kilometre south of the turning to Puerto Morelos is the Yaax Che-Jardin Botanico Dr Alfredo Barrera for native Yucatán plant life, spider monkeys and birds. Labels are in English, Spanish, and Latin. There is also a nursery, orchid garden, a reproduction of a chiclero, a Mayan house, and an archaeological site. A nature walk through the mangroves makes for excellent bird watching and occasional monkey sightings. A tree-house lookout also provides an sensational view.

Further south, take the Ruta de los Cenotes, though an orange archway, inland to Central Vallarta. Along the way are many cenotes, limestone sinkholes, some developed for visitors and other still hidden and unused. The Mayans considered cenotes to be scared gateways to the underworld. These are both underground and open. Swim, snorkel and scuba dive in them either as part of a tour or independently. Many of the cenotes have been developed with zip wires, All Terrain Vehicles and jumping boards. There is a charge for these. See Boca del Puma (www.bocadelpuma.com) at the 16 km mark on the road to Central Vallarta but there are others.

Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen – Located just 25 minutes south of Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen is definitely worth visiting. Its main street, 5th Avenue, is teeming with shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Playa is also home to beautiful beaches and the ferry to reach Cozumel. At least plan on spending one afternoon enjoying the town and having dinner at one of its great restaurants.

Cancun

Villa Caracol is located within easy distance of Cancun airport, a 20 – 30 minute drive and just beyond that is Cancun centro itself.

Cinepolis VIP has large leather recliners, waiters, and restaurants. Most movies are in English with Spanish subtitles. Yak is the finest Bingo you’ll ever play. As numbers are called they light up on giant number boards (convenient for those who are not familiar with Spanish numbers) and every round has several winners. You can also bet on horse and greyhound racing upstairs in the sports bar.

Golf – Whether you brought your clubs along or want to rent some for the day, there are several fine courses available for public play.
