"My family stayed for 3 nights at Sac Chich in March, and had a wonderful time. My wife and 4 kids (13,11,9,6) spent a lot of time at the pool, and the owners' dog Eva came over and played one afternoon (which was a huge hit with the kids). The grounds were beautiful, the building was unlike anywhere we stayed before, and it was almost more beautiful at night than during the day. The owners were staying at Casa Sisal next door, and we walked up one morning to check that out as well (very modern, very sleek, a great vacation rental as well). We'd stayed in Merida for a few days before this, so to have all of this open space was a real treat for the kids. We had the staff make breakfasts and dinners for us, and the food was REALLY good, and the "girls" (as Cyndy called them) were very friendly and helpful (it was fun testing our Spanish with them). All in all, we had a great stay, and were very sad leaving our hacienda."

A Tranquil Beach House,,,Una Casa de Playa Tranquilo
"If you are wanting relaxation, calm, and losing yourself on a quiet beach, this is the place to go. San Benito is off the grid, no clubs, mega resorts, or overcrowded clubs.I walked two hours in the morning and saw 5 people, it was wonderful. The house is designed to feel open and the ambience is what you want at the beach .The house is perfect for reading, laying in a hammock, and just listening to sounds of the beach. I really loved the floating bed it was the perfect place for an afternoon siesta. Barbara was very helpful in arranging for people to clean, cook, and they are close by. This is a comfortable house for a small group, and it provides the basic things for a restful vacation. Progresso is close by if you want to venture into town for dinner, or shopping.Local find: Margarita's 11km from the house, good food and wonderful beach restaurant. Ask Wilma, the next door neighbor when they come by for fresh fish to buy, right outside your door! I have been traveling to Mexico for over 35 years and this place is one of my favorites, Thanks again Barbara for sharing your home, espero contar con su presencia un dia, hasta entonces bien,, Esteban"

"For years we have visited the Carribean through the eyes of the All Inclusive Resorts.
Tana Pepem, nestled in the village of El Cuyo, has changed the way we travel forever.
We spent a week of absolute relaxation, on a never ending white sand beach, in this beautiful ocean front villa. The villa was spotless and is so well designed that the absence of air conditioning was not missed. The ocean breeze flows freely through the screened patio doors and windows on the upper and lower floors, so it was never uncomfortable, even on the 32 degree days. The housekeepers Sara and Gabrielle were very attentive to our requests and the village tour that Sara took us on the day after we arrived introduced us to the grocery shopping options and restarants. We bought all our food in Cancun as we were not sure what was available there but you can purchase fresh fish and chicken in the village as well as some produce. Sara arranged a boat ride for us and we enjoyed seeing the shore and town from the ocean side. There was an excellent snorkelling reef, a tour through the fishing harbour and we stopped to visit a beach covered with many varieties of shells. Sara also assisted us in arranging to have a traditional Mexican meal prepared right in the Villa. We enjoyed learning how to prepare some wonderful Mexican dishes when Gabby and Betty arrived. If you are looking for a vacation that takes you back in time, away from the crowds, hustle and bustle of everyday life, but need to feel comfortable and safe, you will not be disappointed."

"This pretty casita is located around 20 minutes walk from Chuburna Puerto, the nearest village. There you can buy groceries, beer, fish and some meat, but there is no big supermarket. The house has an excellent layout, with two bedrooms and a nice open living area where you can cook while chatting to others in the seating area. A large window has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico and the sea comes up to a few meters from the house.
There are plenty of plastic chairs outside, two good sun loungers and a big outside picnic table, so we spent lots of time every day on the beach. The owner, Leticia, responded immediately to our request to the Property Manager (Carlos) to repair the corroded stove by buying and installing a new one, so we were impressed by the quality of service from her.
There is a regular Combi - Collectivo - service from Chuburna Puerto into Chelem and Progreso, which are the next bigger villages to the East of Chuburna Puerto. Chelem has more restaurants and shops then Chuburna. Progreso is much bigger with two large supermarkets and is a tourist destination for large cruise boats from Galvaston and Alabama twice a week.
We really enjoyed the peaceful, quiet nature of Chuburna Puerto. It is right at the end of the development line along this part of the coast. It easy to make friends here as the 'Gringos' are very friendly -- some rent and some live here permanently, and there are no big hotels for tourist types. We stayed in February and most of the houses are unoccupied, except for Mexican holidays when parties arrive from Merida and enjoy lots of music and swimming all around, usually for a couple of days."
