Staying in Chemuyil is an authentic Mexican experience!!!
The town itself frequently hosts festivities, soccer matches and markets that you simply will never see in the tourist zones!!!
Besides the Expat subdivision in neighboring Chan Chemuyil (half a mile south), there are still blessedly few foreigners in this quaint town!
Due largely to the employment opportunities from the Adventure Parks, Pyramid ruins and All-Inclusive Hotels in the area, Chemuyil has grown from a humble 20 people in 1990 to a bustling town of over 1200! Because employment is high, the town is much “better off” than most Mexican pueblos.
Chemuyil is family oriented and very community-centered.
The whole community gathers at the soccer field to watch nightly matches.
Children play unsupervised in the early evening at the town park across the street (this is a good indicator of the town's safety)
When it is time to celebrate a birthday, a baptism, a woman's coming of age (quinceanera), or a wedding, entire neighborhood streets are closed to vehicle traffic . Pinatas are hung and the sounds of laughter, dancing and music are quick to follow!
The fruit and vegetable market sets up on Wednesdays and Saturdays a block south of our house.
Garbage pick-up, town cleaners, and a friendly police presence give you a pleasant sense of cleanliness and community.
…and the town truly comes alive during its numerous festivals. The Day of the Dead, Mexico's Independence Day, The Virgin of Guadalupe, Christmas, The January Rodeo, Mardi Gras, and Semana Santa are some of the bigger ones.
Spanish will come in handy in Chemuyil so brush up before you visit.
It is truly a Mexican pueblo. Many locals can speak some limited English, but don’t count on it!
groceries, restaurants, The Chemuyil cave, or the local swimming hole (Xunan Ha Cenote) are all within a reasonable walking distance
Chemuyil always has a line of taxis 30 yards from our house
The Mexican government subsidizes their public transport system so bus prices are artificially low. Shuttle vans (collectivos) run every 5-10 minutes from about 7AM to 11PM up and down the North South highway that connects Tulum to Playa del Carmen to Cancun. The shuttle vans pick up about 30 yards from our house. Hold a hand in the air and flag one down.
$2.50 per person to go from Chemuyil to Tulum or Chemuyil to Playa Del Carmen
Truly, there is soooo much to do in the area, you will not regret the convenience and mobility of having your own wheels.
