About Adriana Zivelonghi-Ouellette
I lived in Cancun in my twenties and though I liked Cancun, I loved the Rivera Maya as it offered the best snorkeling in the area and a more tranquil feel. It was my dream to someday own a house in Akumal/Tulum. My husband made my dreams come true in December of 2016 when we purchased Casa Caracol.
Adriana Zivelonghi-Ouellette purchased this House in 2016
Why Adriana Zivelonghi-Ouellette chose Tulum
We chose Casa Caracol because of it's beautiful beachfront location and the quiet neighborhood it is part of. This home sits on a powdery sandy beach and is steps away to Cenote Manatee. This classic Mexican Villa offers stunning ocean views and is ideal for snorkeling. We also love that it is located near Tulum. Tulum offers some of the best beaches in the Mexican Riviera and is home to one of the best Maya ruins in the region. Casa Caracol is in the midst of the unsurpassable Mexican Riviera Maya.
What makes this House unique
IMAGINE: Imagine a whole new world of color, sound and adventure awaiting your discovery. Imagine swimming and snorkeling in freshwater natural cenotes on a blistering hot day. Imagine experiencing first hand the shimmering flashes of tropical colors while snorkeling or diving into the second largest coral reef system which hosts one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Imagine watching the sea turtles up close feeding on the seagrass that grows on the seabeds of Akumal. Imagine being dropped into the sea miles off the shore of Cancun and looking into the eyes of the gentle Whale Sharks. Imagine zipping above jungle canopy and through the vast Mayan jungle. Imagine the sights and sounds of the jungle while traversing on an ATV through the mysterious lush terrain of the Yucatan Peninsula. Imagine yourself living as the Maya did thousands of years ago while touring the world famous ruins of Tulum. Imagine a friendly and kind people greeting you and welcoming you to share in their world. The numerous activities, tours and water parks along the surrounding areas are adventures to be discovered by children and adults of all ages. WISH YOU WERE HERE!

My family of 13 (from ages 75 to 10) stayed at Casa Caracol for 6 days and had a great time. It did not feel crowded at all even with 13 people. The constant ocean breeze was wonderful and kept the main living area nice and pleasant. Each room had its own air conditioner which kept us comfortable for a good night's rest.
The property manager, Angela and Hilario, were great at tending to all our needs, from chopping down many many coconuts for my crazy family to preparing a great meal of ceviche and steamed fish. During our stay, one of our family members had a birthday, and Angela was gracious to purchase a cake for us. Adriana, property owner, gifted us with a nice bottle of tequila to help with the celebration. What a great way to celebrate a birthday!
Thanks, Adriana, Angela and Hilario!
First of all, thank you for the wonderful review! We are so honored that you were able to celebrate your family member's birthday at Casa Caracol! Gotta say that the coconut palms trees at our property are so very giving! We hope to see you again soon!
Excellent location directly on the beach
The location is fantastic with all the facilities to enjoy the beach
Water shoes are a must!!
The only down side is the condition of the villa itself
It’s pretty run down it requires some tlc
In need of repairs here and there a new paint job and bathroom refurbs
Everything is functioning but asthecitally it requires some work
We really enjoyed staying at Casa Caracol.
The reservation was clear, simple, questions answered right away!!! Easy:)
The place looks as expected and the beach front is amazing.
Casa Caracol is a magical place for me too. The entire region is magical. I do hope you got the most out of it because we are so close to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, many natural reserves, water parks, cenotes, incredible jungle and the mangrove forest.
The town of Tulum, which is less that a ten minute drive, offers great shopping and both casual and fine dining.
We hope to see you again on your next Vacation Adventure!
I love this place! My 14 friends and I stayed here for 5 nights. The beach was great and we used the hammocks, kayaks, snorkel gear and played corn hole. Bring some water shoes and you can easily walk right into the water. There are coral reefs right outside the house. You can go pretty far and it gets a little deeper. We grilled out a few nights and even had a personal chef come over. The dock next door is fabulous too. You can go out there and see a ton of stars. It’s amazing! It’s not far from everything. We found a driver with a van who was super helpful and drove us anywhere for a decent price. The water park is close and awesome! Hilario and his wife were lovely! So happy to help. We will be coming back!
Thank you so much for your review. We are so fortunate to have found our beloved house staff Hilario and Angelina! They really put a lot of effort into ensuring our guests have everything they need to enjoy their stay.
Thank you for your appreciation in the hard work they do. We hope to see you soon!
We loved every minute of our stay at Casa Caracol! Adrianna was extremely helpful prior to our stay answering many questions quickly. Hilario and Angelina were wonderful. The house is beautiful. There are two restaurants, one on either side of the house that were very convienent. Casa Cenote is steps away. Definitely would love to return!
Thank you so much for your review. You're the best. We look forward to hosting you again!
Perfect location for family vacation
The house is located on a very nice beach . There is a little hotel right next door ( they are very discreet and you are not bothered by any noise coming from them) and they have a jetty that they allow you to use which is great ! You can also order from them , it is like room service on your own beach.
Of the jetty, there is a “natural” pool where it is very safe to swim amd snorkel and there is snorkel equipment and cayaks from the housethat you can use.
A beautiful Cenote is 15 seconds walk from the house ( entrance is $ 130 mexican pesos) and there is also a little convinience store whereyou can buy food, drinks , first aid things etc....
The house is big and confortable, all the bedrooms have A/C . For those who like to sleep in the dark, bring your own sleep masks because the curtains are white and as soon as the sun rises , it is very bright in the rooms.
The staff is friendly and very helpful and they can cook for you as well.
There are a few things missing in the kitchen like salad bowls and serving dishes.
Overall, the house is nice ( maybe a little TLC is needed ) and it is definitely a good value for the money.
The owner was very helpful and answered our questions very quickly when we needed information.
I would recommend this house a 100%.
We had a very nice relaxing time and our kids had a lot of fun .
Thank you for your visit and your detailed review! I'm so happy that you and your group were able to enjoy all the amenities Casa Caracol has to offer.
We have since ordered blackout window coverings which I believe will block out most of the sun. We also purchased a few new items such as new outdoor chairs and lounges, a few pieces of indoor furniture and paintings.
It was a pleasure serving you.
Thank you again for the wonderful review and I hope you come back soon!
Casa Caracol is a comfortable Oceanfront 5 bedroom three bathroom Mexican style home. It sits on a sandy beach which leads to the warm, clear and calm blue waters of the Mexican Riviera. The tropical waters are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and much more. Casa Carcol's location is perfectly situated between Cancun and Sian Ka'an reserve. Basically you're in the center of the spectacular Yucatan landscape. A car is strongly recommended because of the many adventures and activities that await you.
