About the Property
New three-bedroom, three bathroom, two story beach home
Boating, swimming, bird watching, and fishing are nearby. The beach is public, but is mostly sparsely occupied and peaceful, except on long weekends and holidays when it becomes quite lively.
Local urban culture ranges from the fishing villages of Chelem and Chuburna, with bars and restaurants ranging from basic to excellent, frequent local festivals, and day-to-day shopping, to Merida, a city of about 1M, 45 minutes away.
Merida offers beautiful historical neighbourhoods and shopping districts, art galleries and museums, wonderful restaurants, professional sports venues, and all the amenities and services of other modern north American cities, including a world-class hospital and Wal-Mart.
Once you leave our short local road, which is hard packed sand, these destinations are reachable via paved roads and highways.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The area along the beach between the fishing villages of Chelem and Chuburna is a strip of vacation homes between the Gulf of Mexico and a paved two-lane highway. The majority of homes are unoccupied except during the summer vacation season and holidays. Permanent residents, mostly ex-pats, are the minority. The land between Progreso and Chuburna is essentially a large sandbar, with a body of shallow saltwater referred to as the Ria, lying south of the highway. The Ria is home to an abundance of water birds: egrets, herons, pelicans, storks, etc.
A few minutes east of Chelem is Progreso, a port city of approximately 50,000 people. Directly south of Progreso about 20 minutes, is Merida, a city of about 1 million people. It was founded in 1542 and grew wealthy as a result of the production of henequen. Learn more about it here:
In spite of its long history, it is a modern growing city with sophisticated shopping, cultural amenities, and health services.
The north Yucatán Peninsula offers historic and archaeological treasures such as restored henequen haciendas and Mayan ruins; natural features such as the many cenotes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenotes); and various religious festivals.
Year Purchased: 2011
About: We live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We visited friends in Chelem a few years ago and decided it would be a wonderful place to build a 'winter escape home'. We are extremely pleased with the house, but given that most of our friends and family (including three little grandchildren!) are in Western Canada, we do not expect to spend more than two months a year there. To us, it makes all kinds of sense for others to enjoy the house and its setting when we can't.
Why Chelem, Yucatan, Mexico:
As we expect is the case with most people who buy vacation properties, we did not search the entire world looking for the 'perfect spot'. Our visit a few years ago convinced us that it would be difficult to do significantly better, so we bought the lot and built the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although we are extremely pleased with how the house turned out, it is the setting that appeals the most. We have white sand and green water for our front yard, charming fishing villages to the east and west, the substantial town of Progreso 15 minutes to east, the wonderful City of Merida 40 minutes away, and historic and natural treasures within easy driving distance. Our neighbors include generally happy and helpful locals and a significant proportion of ex-pats, mostly from the US and Canada.
