"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."
