  • Wonderful stay away from the madding crowds of Cancun !

    "We are a family of 5, with 3 children aged 9, 13 and 16. The 'casita' really met our expectations : we were looking for an authentic experience in Mexico, far from the huge all inclusive resorts of the Mayan riviera. The village is peopled with Mexicans, Canadians and Americans. A short walk on a nice dirt path in the jungle will lead you to the nearby village of Chemuyil where you can buy your grocery or eat in nice restaurants. Two different cenotes are located within 100 meters of the casita, one is great for swimming as it is in open air and it looks like a natural pool in the middle of a natural garden, the other is more for snorkeling addicts as the major part of it is underground ! I particularly enjoyed walking alone on the beach (10 minutes walk through a nice path) and watch the sun rise in the morning, and even in the middle of the day during peak season ( we were there during the Christmas vacations) the beach was very quiet. We all enjoyed the waves during the windy days, and snorkeling on the coral reef which lies about 100 mts from the beach and is easy and safe to reach. In Akumal, about 10 minutes drive, we had the chance to snorkel with big sea turtles and stingrays, without having to pay for a guide. In Tulum, about 15 minutes drive, you can find a big "american style" supermarket, and of course the mayan ruins. The casita itself is simple, but functional. We did not use the air conditioning, because temperature was really nice. We enjoyed our meals outside, listening to colourful birds and watching friendly iguanas basking on the top of the walls. Big plastic water bottles are provided since it is not recommended to drink water from the faucet in Mexico... All windows and doors are protected by iron bars, but once again the place itself is very safe ( but you never know...). We liked the decoration in the house, very ´local' and personal. The only issue we had was with the internet, you have to plug a usb stick to your computer and recharge it from time to time as there is no wifi, but this only bothered our 16 year old teen... Cellular phones work very well if you really want to stay in touch with your relatives and friends ! The owners answered very quickly to our queries. We already look forward to our next vacation in the 'casita' ! Thanks Bill and Brenda !"

  • Awsome Condo

    "My husband and I have stayed in Playa Caribe a few times, this was the first in this unit. We loved being on the first floor with the pool and beach steps away. The condo was perfect and had all the amenities anyone could ask for. There was a small amount of seaweed, but it did not impact our trip at all - in fact it was a pleasant surprise after all the bad news we had heard about it. Joyce was very helpful and easy to work with. The staff at the condo are all helpful and wonderful. We did not do a lot of touristy things this trip, just enjoyed the beach and local hangouts in half moon bay and Akumal. We especially enjoyed breakfast at Turtle Bay and dinner at La Buena Vida. Weather was great. It rained one day so we drove south of Tulum and explored some different areas. Highly recommend this condo."

  • Fantastic Beach House!

    "We just returned from a week at Casa Caribe and we enjoyed it very much. The house was in great condition and looked even better than in the photos. The room upstairs was absolutely heaven and it was lovely to listen to the waves as you are falling asleep. Christina and Luis were super helpful with anything we needed. Some of our favorite activities were to go to the beach clubs up in Tulum and check out the local cenotes. We also really enjoyed Coba, we were early before the tour buses got there and we had the place to ourselves. Pretty amazing! I would really recommend having a car here, it opens up lots of fun opportunities though we did walk every night to dinner."

  • Robinson Crusoe getaway

    "I was looking for a place off the grid, away from Tulum in the biosphere and I certainly found it at Xamach Dos. Even though I emailed for availability at the last minute, I received a reply withing 20 minutes. Management and staff could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. The majority of our stay, we had the beach and restaurant to ourselves. It was off season, after all. There is a choice of loungers and hammocks sprinkled throughout. We stayed at Casa Secreta which was perfectly situated for someone craving privacy: in the jungle, yet steps from the water. We had use of kayaks and snorkel gear if we so desired. The reef is within visible distance. Ancient Mayan ruins can be found across the street and the staff will be more than happy to recommend tours within the biosphere or excursions to Tulum. Yes, the road is bumpy and the journey there will take a while at 20 km/hr. You are on vacation: relax and enjoy the scenery! Do bring plenty of DEET free mosquito repellent ( a must for the entire Riviera Maya) and strong biodegradable sunblock or sunscreen. The food was great; always freshly prepared. The vibe is relaxed. If you live by a different beat, please visit something more in tune with you."
