"This is by far the best hotel I’v ever stayed in! Me and my boyfriend was just blowened away. The rooms were incredible. They had just thought about every single detail. And the view… WOW! Every morning I woke up doing my yoga in the morning sun on the big wonderful terrace outside our bedroom (a yoga persons dream!), and afterwords we had breakfast there in the sun looking out over the sea.
The house is just on the beach and a few meters from the the crystal clear water where you can walk twenty meters out and the water will still be just up to your knees. This place is just perfect for families with little once, or families with older children, for couples or just to go by your self.
Just about 50 meters out in the sea there is a coral reef (!) where me and my boyfriend went snorkeling with Phiippe, one of the house owners! This was crazy unbelievable! Philippe leaded us through this amazing labyrinth of corals, just like the corals had builded a road between their walls. Amazing fishes, big and small, surrounded us. Philippe showed us a huge lobster and I never in my life thought I would swim so close to a ray!
Close to the house, on the other side, there is a beautiful lake (where you can borrow a little boat) that we unfortunate didn’t had time to explore.
The house also have kayaks you can borrow.
Next to the house lives a little family, Luc and Teo and there beautiful little daughter. This couple cleans and takes care of the house. And they are doing a fantastic job I most say. We asked them to prepare a chicken for us and wow… this was the most juicy, tasty and amazing chicken I’v ever eaten in my life!
This secret place, far away from the city, is an Mexican treasure. I’m so glad I went there and I just need to come back! On our trip in Mexico we explored Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Akumal, Cobá, Cichen Itza, Valladolid, Hollbox, Cancun and of course Xcalac and this was truly the highlight of our trip!
At last I want to give a BIG thank you to the amazing couple, Gisele and Philippe, who owns this beautiful house. They was so warm and welcoming and was just fantastic and helpful through our stay in Casa Caracola. All the time taking care of us and making sure everything was perfect made it even more special than it already was.
Thank you so much Gisele, Philippe, Lus and Teo
A big hug from Sweden!
Amanda and Mustafa"
