“XAMAN-NAH” Is a Mayan word, which means “house of the north” and which describes with precision the place where this picturesque villa is, framed by a tropical panorama with turquoise greenish colored seawater and soft, fine and very white sand on the northwest coast of the State of Yucatan. Villa Xaman-Nah is an enchanting villa, which preserves the construction style of the ancient inhabitants of this region as a form of respect to the culture that our Mayas tried to communicate to the present generations. Stucco, stone and wood are an essential part of the construction of this villa, which was redone not long ago to offer you comfort and the necessary facilities for a perfect vacation without forgetting the ancestral magical touch, which we try to transmit. Due to its privileged location inside the Ria Lagartos National Park, Villa Xaman-Nah offers everything you always dreamed about magical and unforgettable vacations surrounded by natural beauty. Nature and relaxation!
Fishing: The extraordinary marine life around El Cuyo presents a mysterious world of adventures. This is the reason why fishing is one of the activities most exciting and relaxing here. El Cuyo has a great diversity of fish. At depths up to 20 to 25 feet (6 meters) you will find Mero (Grouper), Canane, Pargo, colored and white Corvina, red Snaper, Chac Chi, Robalo (Snook), Sabalo (Tarpon), Jurel, Cojinuda, Ronco, Macabi, Bagre (Catfish) and Barracuda among others... In only 20 minutes your boat can be at fishing depth, easily in sight of the nearby shore.The fish you catch varyes from 1 to 4 pounds. If you're looking for something more exciting, you can go out to a depth of 90 feet, approximately an hour by boat. At this depth you'll be able to catch fish from 2 to 20 pounds or more. Here you'll find Meros (Grouper), Pargos, Mojarras, Negrillos, Esmedregal, Carito, Bonito, Barrilito and Jurel among others.
Spectacular walks along the beach: Walking over water seems to be possible in El Cuyo beaches. Try gathering seashells in the morning between 8 AM and 9 AM when the sun is not as strong. Many different kinds of all colors, shapes, and sizes can be found beyond the town pier and boat landing. Here you'll often be the only ones on the beach. At night you can stroll the beach and admire the stars. With luck you may spot a turtle laying eggs. Always carry a flashlight to capture these moments. Do not touch, only observe. Don't be surprised if at night you see a four-wheeler on the beach. Personnel drive it from SEMARNAT (Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources of Mexico) who are watching for turtle nests and protecting the environment. Fires on the beach are not permitted at night as they disorient the turtles when they come to lay their eggs. Respect this magic moment of the nature and alone observe being grateful for the opportunity of this meeting with a real miracle of the life....
