About Sally Attwell

I'm Sally, owner of an amazing property in Mexico located on the lake of seven colors Lagoona Bacalar . I have been an extreme gardener from a young teen , love landscaping , Home Decorating, Antiquing, listening to the birds singing and all things beautiful

I opened a full service Hair Salon in 1978 that I still own and run - Best Little Hair House.

I had mayacala built in 2010 on this amazing private cove, when you arrive as you open the car door and step out .... you are in another world with Nature, with the sounds of the jungle and as you awake in the morning you can sip your coffee as you gaze at the Beauty of the Lake the jungle comes alive and serenade's you.

The lake is like a huge bath tub (known as the lake of seven colors ) it looks like the Ocean amazing !

The villa is nestled in the jungel on a bluff on it's own private cove over looking the lake with views from the Casa , Casita, Nest and Great room.

A vacation at Mayacala will reward you with gentle tropical breezes, warm clear water, starry nights and the seductive sounds of a genuine jungle paradise. I chose this location on Laguana Bacalar and would love to share the serenity seclusion and beauty it provides.

Sally Attwell purchased this villa in 2009

Why Sally Attwell chose Quintana Roo

I love the lush jungle and this beautiful pristine warm lake known as the lake of seven colors

What makes this villa unique

Maya Cala is located in the middle of a jungle and a lagoon, making for an ideal setting for a variety of endemic plants and many animals, including a large number of birds.

A Tropical Paradise! The Villa is privileged because of it's amazing setting, on it's own private cove with the surrounding jungle and our close proximity to the ocean, either to the huge Bay of Chetumal and the beaches of fine white sand and turquoise water in Mahahual, from where you can reach the spectacular Chinchorro Reef, an underwater marvel. Mayacala, built in 2010, is on a bluff overlooking pristine Laguna Bacalar in a secure gated community. This is a tropical paradise with warm crystal clear water surrounded by lush jungle vegetation with many birds including Toucans and parrots; exotic butterflies and monkeys in their natural habitat. The moment you step from the car you are in another world, the jungle comes alive and serenades you. Each room in the villa has a wonderful view and you can dine, relax or shower in the jungle.

Area InformationLaguna Bacalar is the second largest fresh-water lake in all of Mexico. Over 50km long one side is forested by palms and various hardwoods while the other side is a beautiful wild mangrove marsh. It is fed by fresh water springs from the cenotes and is so clear and clean that it is a fabulous turquoise colour in the shallower areas with different shades of blue arising where the depth is greater. It is known as the 'The lake of Seven Colours'.
