Recent Yucatan reviews

  • Cultural Excape

    "Renting a property in Centro is so convenient for sightseeing, dining, and access to cooking classes as well as painting classes. This home is spacious for 2 couples to share. A TV on the main level would be an added pleasure since the only TV is in the master on the 2nd floor. The rooftop patio is great for early morning coffee,reading,yoga/stretching & of course, evening sunsets are very beautiful. We didn't use the grill as hauling food up 43 steps seemed a bit much for us. All in all, a great house!"

  • Paradise in the City!

    "We went to Merida to see the sights of the Yucatan- the cenotes, pyramids, haciendas... However, we loved the peace and tranquility of Villa Caribe so much we left only to buy groceries and cerveza. It was perfect! Anna is very prompt with communications as well as her property manager, Rosalinda. Villa Caribe exceeded our expectations. Stay at Villa Caribe when you visit Merida!"

  • Perfect Vacation House

    "The house is nice and spacious. We stayed for 2 weeks. The kitchen was well equipped and the living room was great for watching movies. We enjoyed eating meals in the patio; it allowed our children to eat quickly and jump back in the pool or go to the beach. A wall divides the patio and the pool from the neighbors house which makes it a perfect size for the kids to swim and provides privacy. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The main bedroom has a nice balcony with a great ocean view (perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sun set). We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely rent this house in the future. :)"

  • Amazing House and GREAT HOST!

    "My husband and I rented the property for 3 weeks. It is a super charming place. We instantly felt at home. It is right in the Center of Merida, so you walk to dinner and can go sightseeing without a car. Still the house is very quiet and affords a lot of privacy. We especially enjoyed the patio with the outdoor shower and the pool! The host went out of her way to accommodate our wishes. The house is super well maintained and very clean. We highly recommend spacious this gem!"

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.
