Imagine relaxing in your hammock on the terrace - just 2 steps between you and the white sand beach...

The 3-bedroom apartment (for 7 people) covers the ground floor of a spacious colonial-style villa in the perfect location, beachfront and just 400m from the centre square.

To rent the entire villa or for long term, please message us.

The space
The main area of the villa is open plan, simply appointed and bright and airy.
*Glass doors that open onto the terrace with BBQ, eating area, seating area, hammock & beach setting (with 2 sunbeds).
*Fully-equipped kitchen with water dispenser (drinking water provided), fridge freezer, gas oven and 4 burners, microwave, coffee machine, blender, kettle and toaster - plus pots and pans, utensils, plates etc.
*Comfortable seating area with a coffee table
*Dining area with a large wooden table and benches
We don't provide a television as we believe El Cuyo is best enjoyed without 'real world' distractions. People come here to enjoy spending time with their family and friends; to relax, enjoy the beach, reconnect with nature and disconnect from daily drags.

*BEDROOM 1 has double bed and glass doors opening onto the terrace - in 10 small steps you can go 'from bed to beach'! The room also has a fan, closet, full-length mirror, bedside table, chair and small table with lamp.
*BEDROOM 2 has a double and a single bed, plus fan, closet, set of drawers, full-length mirror and bedside lamp. This room also has a door to the bathroom.
*BEDROOM 3 has a King-sized bed, bedside tables, drawer unit, fan, full-length mirror, coat hooks, bedside lamp and chair.

Where you’ll be

El Cuyo, Yucatán, Mexico

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!

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)

El Cuyo is part of the nature reserve of Ria Lagartos and the wildlife is abundant. Your neighbours are turtles, pelicans, 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.

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 Sport rents SUPs.
When the sea is really calm and visibility is clear (usually in the summer months) snorkelling is possible and there are a couple of interesting spots nearby.

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 and clinic and everything is within walking distance to 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 (we provide drinking water).
Note however that there are restaurants, snack food places, pizzerias and cafes in El Cuyo. Some close for low season - September and October.

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

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 normally within 24 hours it is swept away.

The house is on the sand avenue stretching to west side of town looking out onto the main kitesurf beach and only 5 minutes walk to the centre of town.

During your stay

I am based a few thousand miles away but my co-host Cathy deals with everything in El Cuyo.
She can assist you with any query you may have prior to arrival, and during your stay.
