Description
The Space

Fall time is the perfect time to visit the Yucatan. The summer rains have faded, temperatures have cooled, citrus crops are ripening, avocados are dripping from the trees. Guests enjoy complimentary breakfast of sweet breads from the village wood fired oven bakery, local fruits, fresh juice from citrus grown on the property and delicious Mexican coffee. The guest palapa features a traditional palm roof made by village craftsmen. The space is furnished with antiques and locally sourced furnishings. The full size bed has a top quality mattress set and mosquito netting. Bed and bath linens are of quality high count 100 percent cotton. Complimentary bath kits feature artisan soaps locally made by hand of neem oil, neem charcoal, coco oil and other natural extracts and fragrances. Fresh cut aloe is available on request, perfect for the skin after a day in the sun. The antique water tank, formerly used for farm irrigation, has been updated, perfect for an afternoon swim.

The Neighborhood

This is a traditional Mayan village, things haven't changed much here in the last 50 or so years. Maya is the first language for many of the people. The women still wear their hipils, a traditional white dress with colorful embrordery. The older men gather in the village plaza each evening, eager to share stories and a few words of Maya with you. Interested in a cooking lesson of Yucatan traditional food? A hike in the nearby "jungles" Or a visit to a private hacienda? just let us know......

Other Things to Note

Its a big help if you can let the host know your time of arrival so that someone will be available to greet you upon arrival.

About Jim
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
