Where you’ll be

El Cuyo, Yucatán, Mexico

UNDISCOVERED PARADISE!
El Cuyo is an authentic fishing village with virgin beaches and stunning emerald waters. It's only 2 hours and 15 minutes from Cancun but so far it has remained relatively undiscovered and undeveloped. So if you'd prefer to relax on an empty beach, where the locals are friendly and the fish is fresh - rather than hanging out with the hoards in Quintana Roo, El Cuyo is the place for you!

DAY TRIPS:
El Cuyo is also perfectly placed for day trips to Isla Holbox, the pink lagoons of Las Coloradas and the ruins of Ek Balam. Chichen Itza is also feasible within a day. (Please note that there are limited tour providers, so a rental car makes these trips far more cost effective and easier)

NATURE:
El Cuyo is part of the nature reserve of Ria Lagartos and the wildlife is abundant. Your neighbours are turtles, pelican, flamingos and iguanas, and if you're lucky you'll get to spot a dolphin or giant manta from the beach! There are also 250 different species of birds in the lagoon area.

WATERSPORTS:
If you want a little more action, you can try kiteboarding. El Cuyo has been featured in numerous international kiting magazines and is quickly becoming known as a hot new kiting destination. There are various schools in the town.
For those who don't kite, the breeze - which usually picks up around lunchtime - serves to keep the heat bearable! Usually in the mornings, there's no wind and the sea is perfectly calm so it's great for paddleboarding or canoeing/kayaking. Extreme Control Sports rents SUPs.
When the sea is really calm and visibility is clear (usually in the summer months) snorkelling is possible although there's no reef.

EL CUYO FACILITIES:
As El Cuyo is a fishing village and a beach & nature haven, it does not have all the facilities of a modern tourist resort.
It does have the basics - small grocery shops, clinic and gas station are all within walking distance of the property - but if you want to enjoy some of the 'finer' things during your stay, we recommend a trip to the supermarket before you come.
Note however that there are restaurants, snack food places, pizzerias and cafes in El Cuyo. Some close for low season - September and October

NEED TO KNOW!
There is no ATM and very few places accept credit cards - please bring enough cash for the duration of your stay.
The nearest town to El Cuyo which has ATMs, supermarkets etc, is Tizimin - which is over an hour away by car.

EL CUYO BEACHES:
The sea and beach are perfect for bathers including children, with fine sandy, slowly sloping shores and clear warm water. Very rarely a northerly wind may bring seaweed to the coastline but it's usually swept away within 24 hours.

CASA SOFIA LOCATION:
Casa Sofia is on the east side of town by the baseball field, close to the main kitesurf beach and only 5 minutes walk from the centre of town.

I love travelling, tasting the local cuisine and sunshine!

I spent 15 years working in tourism in various countries across Europe, and then decided to spread my wings and explore further afield. So I quit my job, became an English teacher and moved to Mexico... Life changing!

Now, after six years here, I still teach English occasionally - but I quickly returned to hospitality. I run the restaurant 'El Chile Gordo' and look after my Airbnb guests. I'm happily settled in El Cuyo and love my life 'off the beaten track'.

As a host, I'll do my utmost to ensure your stay in El Cuyo is fabulous...and I'll happily show off our beautiful hidden paradise - giving you as many tips as possible on the local area, where to go and what to do etc.

I look forward to meeting you!
