We are located about 2 kilometers outside the fishing village of Chelem (towards Chuburna) and the beach is just a short 5 minute walk from the house. There are a number of restaurants in Chelem/Chuburna as well as small markets for necessities. The larger town of Progreso is only a 10 minute drive and they have large supermarkets, Mercado and Malecon. Progreso is a port of call for several cruise lines, so there are shopping opportunities for everyone. The capital city of Merida is a short 35 minute drive. It is a stunning historical center of this state, with the cathedrals, colonial palaces and other landmarks that date back to the 16th century.
And, of course, there is the Mayan culture that is so much a part of this region. We are fortunate to be near so many of the Mayan ruins, such as Chitzen Itza and Uxmal (plus countless others).
Depending on the time of year for your visit, the Pink Flamingo’s will be close by too (our favorites!) and there is fishing in the Ria. Fresh fish is the local dish available at most restaurants.
