  • Great beach casita in a tranquil town.

    "El Cuyo is a rustic fishing village with friendly people and a welcoming atmosphere. Small, it is quiet, slow moving, and genuinely peaceful. Virtually tourist free, this is the place to be if you want to slow down and relax on a secluded beach. Exactly as advertised, the house is a spacious two bedroom / two bath with an open floor plan. It could comfortably sleep two couples and a few children. Good showers and kitchen, etc. Great second story balcony and first floor patio for ocean views and ocean breezes. Plenty of fans for warm days. The white sand beach is twenty steps from the patio and stretches for something like 20 km. Morning walks and evening sunsets were uninterrupted - we rarely saw another person while wading or swimming. The water is generally calm with mild waves on occasion. It's a ten minute walk into the town - a few small restaurants (La Conchita and TIburon are good) and bodegas for small items. Rent a car to get here - a couple hours from Cancun - then day trips to Rio Lagartos (tour the reserve and see the flamingos), Ek' Balam (less crowded than Chichen Itza and you can climb the ruins), and a variety of nearby cenotes. Yahairia (owner) was easy to get in touch with and easy to work with. Sara (who lives in El Cuyo) was wonderful - she met us at the house with keys, answered questions, and was available should we need anything. Aside from the solitude this place offers, the highlight of our trip was watching a massive sea turtle swim ashore to nest one evening. Truly magical. We only stayed for a week but plan to return for longer - we will definitely come back to Tana Pepem!"

  • Wonderful Family Vacation!!

    "Our family vacation was spent at Villa Mercedes 2 for four weeks this spring (Feb-Mar) and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience! Right from our first contact to the last our experience with Tony was exceptional; he was very friendly, professional, and helpful and was prompt to respond! The very large home was exactly as pictured with an extra set of clean bedding & towels for each guest. When you walk into the home you can see straight through to the pool, palm trees, white sandy beach, and right through to the Gulf of Mexico, it was very beautiful! The village of Chicxulub was exactly what we were hoping for, ‘Old Mexico’, not commercialized at all!! We found a few good restaurants in the village and also in Progreso which was only a 7 minute drive away or just buy fish from a local fisherman or fresh prawns from the gentlemen who stopped by the house ever couple days and cook in your own kitchen! At the north end of Merida there is a Costco for those who like to stock up, perishables can easily be purchased in either Chicxulub or Progreso. Apparently, there is over 5000 Cenotes in the area, a definite must to take in a few if you are in the Yucatan, they are breathtaking! Along with a tour of at least one of the ancient Mayan ruins, absolutely incredible! Visiting Merida & Uman along with eating fresh coconuts poolside were additional highlights of our trip! All in all a Great Vacation slowing down, enjoying the sun, sand and water! We hope to return again in the future!! Thank you again Tony for sharing our families vacation home with us!"
