Rancho Pedro Paila (Peter Pan Ranch) is located 90 miles south of Cancun, about 10 miles south of Tulum. It consists of one large house with 4 bedrooms and two small houses with two bedrooms each, situated right on the Caribbean Sea, nestled amongst palm trees and set upon dunes of whitest sand, and an incomparable beach. A caretaker’s home is located in the rear of the houses. There is a shallow and pristine coral reef that extends all along the coast, approximately 300 meters off shore. But there is more….
The area is unique because it is within the 'Sian Ka'an Reserve', a protected area of over one million acres, so there are very few neighbors. While the front doors open onto the beach and the sea, the back of the property abuts a large lagoon, Lake Boca Paila, which is a haven for a multitude of varieties of birds and fish, with mangrove channels extending for miles, Mayan ruins, and lush tropical flora and fauna.
This property is recommended for people who want to get away from it all, relax and enjoy a holiday on the beach. This simple property is located six miles down the dirt road from Tulum to Punta Allen within the Xian Ka'an nature reserve. This public road, maintained by the city of Tulum, can be in varying conditions based on the weather, so a four wheel drive car may be necessary during certain seasons. All properties within the reserve must generate their own power and provide their own water, so it is very important that our guests conserve these very important resources. Our power consists of solar, wind and a generator. All three forms of power are required when there are large groups on the property.
Due to the remote nature of the property, we do not recommend this property to guests who are looking for a place where you can walk to dinner, hit the bars and enjoy a lot of night life. Most of our guests spend all their time enjoying our beautiful beach and property.
Rancho Pedro Paila also is home to a full-time caretaker who maintains the property. The caretaker can provide additional services like breakfast and dinner for an additional fee.
