About the Property
Fantastic option for experiencing life near the beach, jungle and wildlife
The main attraction for this house is its location. Its right next to one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Its a turtle sanctuary and tourists can book evening turtle walks and experience the life cycle of our local turtles.
The cuisine here is fusion mix of Mexican, Mayan, North American, European and is very fresh. There are beach bars, restaurants, ruins, snorkeling, diving, sailing, fishing, spas, resorts, adventure parks, cenotes, lagoons and just about anything to keep you going.
On the flip side, the community is also very quiet. If you're looking for something different than a resort vacation, you can save money and experience an authentic visit to Mexico.
If you walk down the streets of Chan Chemuyil expect friendly faces to say hello and even invite you for a sit down and beer. Its a very relaxed and peaceful place to kick off your flip flops and chill. A cold beer next to the pool is a great way to cool off and get some sun.
The neighbouring village of Chemuyil is a nice place to go for a walk. At night the town is alive with children playing and people walking around. Often celebrations, weddings, and festivals abound. Circuses and bull fighting show up as well.
Xcacel beach is only a few minutes walk and you can take some food and drinks with you and sit on the beach all day if you like. The beach is open from 9am to 5pm. They also offer turtle walks in the evenings and you have to go and sign up for that beforehand.
Tulum is a growing town and is full of surprises. They have one of the best beaches in the world and is a must see. The ruins are also close by and is known for being the only seaside Mayan ruins. Get there early and avoid the crowds.
If archeology is your thing, more ruins can be found in Muyil, Coba, Ek Balam and of course Chichen Itza. Cost to get in use usually very minimal. Having a car is very useful but you can also do tours if you opt out of getting a car.
Having a car here is not necessary. Collectivos (shuttle vans) run up and down the highway carrying passengers from Tulum to Playa del Carmen and back again. You can step out onto the highway and catch one easily. Rates are cheap and you can get around without a car.
Akumal is very close and offers great swimming and snorkeling. The bay is teaming with turtles during the Summer and Fall months. Yal Ku is a lagoon that's protected and is also a great snorkeling excursion. You can visit beach restaurants like La Buena Vida and Lol Ha and enjoy breathtaking views while munching on local cuisine and drinks.
Theme parks like Xel-ha are very close and offer an all inclusive setting for the day. Once in, your food and drinks are free and you can walk around the lagoon, or go for an inner tube float down the mangroves, zip line over the water, swim and snorkel and see all the tropical fish in the lagoon.
Be sure to go to places like Solomon Bay and have lunch on the beach at the end of the road. Fresh sea food taken right from the bay is cooked and served on the beach in between palm trees for shade and an amazing view of the bay.
Tankah Bay also has some interesting features like Casa Cenote. Cenotes are one of the unique features of this area. Basically sink holes, the underground water system is practically all connected in some way or another along the entire Yucatan peninsula. The water in the cenotes near the ocean tend to be a tad salty as the water mixes between the two bodies of water but is not as salty as the ocean.
There are services offered here that may interest some tourists such as yoga, massage, diving, cave diving, the list goes on.

Chan Chemuyil is located near Akumal, Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Each has its unique flavour. Akumal is closest and smallest and has a great bay for swimming with turtles and checking out the incredible reef with all its abundant sea life. Fine restaurants abound and there are art shops and of course the beautiful beaches and ocean. Tulum is south of Chemuyil by 20 minutes driving and is much bigger and feels like a town. It has almost anything you will need to compliment your vacation. From groceries to ruins, to restaurants, and one of the top 10 natural beaches in the world. From Tulum you can head west towards Coba ruins or keep going and check out Valladolid and Merida, cities in the Yucatan state. Ruins are plentiful all round this area. Playa del Carmen is known for its night life and does not disappoint. You can walk the touristy 5th Avenue and visit all the neat shops and restaurants. If Tulum doesn't have what you're looking for Playa del Carmen will. Tulum is a bit more relaxed and quiet compared to Playa del Carmen.
