Celestun Travel Tips

Celestun Vacation Rentals: A Quiet Retreat

If you're planning a Yucatan Peninsula vacation, but don't want to stay in a hectic resort or impersonal hotel, consider a Celestun vacation rental for your lodging. Celestun is a sleepy, picturesque fishing village located right on the Gulf of Mexico. Celestun villas are beach-front, private residences that feature all the comforts of home, even sleeping quarters for larger families. Enjoy views of the emerald green ocean from the white, sandy beaches under a brilliantly blue sky. For a quiet, relaxing vacation, Yucatan Peninsula condos are the perfect way to go.

Celestun Vacation Rentals: Nature Awaits

Just outside your Celestun villa is home to one of the world's largest migratory bird reserves: the Biosphere Reserve of Celestun. With over 146,000 acres hosting over 300 species of birds, a day spent bird watching is a must. Boat tours are available through the many habitats: coastal dunes, savannahs, lower deciduous forest, hardwood forests and mangrove forest. Snap photos of the many birds: Northern Cardinals, Tropical Mockingbirds, Tropical Kingbirds, Gold-Fronted Woodpeckers, Grove-Billed Anis and Rose-Throated Becards, are just to a few found here. Take a boat trip down lazy waters through mangrove root tunnels to Baldiosera, a freshwater spring. Then, hike to the petrified forest for a unique afternoon.

Ancient History Comes to Life

Some of Mexico's ancient history is found just minutes away from your Yucatan Peninsula condo. The Kabah ruins' palace has hundreds of carved stones and the Labna ruins' intricate carvings and decorations all pay tribute to the Mayan God Chac. The Sayil ruins are home to El Palacio, a three-tiered palace with Puuc-style columns adorning the over 278 feet of façade. The Dzilbilchatun ruins are unique because the over 800 buildings are mostly intact and in the same state as when the jungle overtook them. After exploring Mexico's history and wildlife, return to your Celestun villa for a quiet evening with your loved ones.
