best way to navigate the area is to have a rental car, since there are too many attractions nearby ..taxis are not expensive and we can arrange a private taxi driver to take you for a daytrip. Pickup from Cancun airport can be arranged for an extra charge as well.

first of all, this place is heavenly. the cabana has an amazing outdoor kitchen that we deeply regret not taking advantage of more and the dining and lounge areas next to the pool are both such nice places to just hang out or take a book to. but the property aside, erika and her crew are what really makes this place shine. so warm and friendly and if you catch her in the right mood, erika might even grace you with a palm reading. we are dying to get back to visit them very soon!! we miss you!

We had the most relaxing time in the jungle. Erika made us feel very welcome upon our late arrival with a glass of wine and introductions to some of the other guests staying there. The cabin was lovely. Very spacious and clean. Loved the walk-in shower. We felt very spoilt every morning waking up to Juan's cooked breakfast, which changed daily. Perfect setting to start the day with the animals wandering around. Dinner was by far the best food we ate while staying in Tulum. Our only regret was not eating dinner here a second night. Erika's sightseeing recommendations were spot on. The cenote we were guided to was beautiful.

Everything was PERFECT at selva orquídeas. Our beautiful cabana was spacious and covered in gorgeous Mexican tapestries. The huge walk-in shower, with amenities, was an amazing perk. The cabanas are located in a tropical garden, a nature-lover's dream! Parrots, peacocks, orchids, and NO MOSQUITOES? With a chlorinated pool cut right out of the limestone? Paradise. There is a menu! Juanito is a phenomenal cook. The food we had there was better than any of the nice restaurants we ended up going to. You must try the shrimps! And the breakfast was amazing: fresh fruits, eggs, sweet-bread, coffee and fresh-squeezed papaya juice. Erika is a sublime host, who can help you with anything you need. She knows all about the best ruins, the best times to go, the best places to shop, etc. Her and her family are so fun, welcome, warm, and gracious, that we never wanted to leave. We both look forward to coming back soon! Thank you for everything Erika!

We were made to feel very welcome, and the whole place is very relaxed. The accommodation comprises a few cabanas in a large garden with the main house (where Erika, her husband and the housekeeper live), pool and outside dining area at the centre. There is a menu for dinner and breakfast is also provided, excellent food cooked by the family and the housekeeper. Food is of course extra to the basic rental. The pool is small - good for a quick refreshing dip, but not really suitable for swimming laps! The cabanas are simple but comfortable. The location is fairly remote - Tulum is about 25 minutes drive, and the nearest supermarket, shops and local restaurants about 15 minutes. Bear in mind this is the jungle, so be prepared for a certain amount of wildlife, especially mosquitos in the evenings.

This was my first time in Mexico and first time using airbnb. I travelled with my bf and we rented a car to go from Cancun to Tulum. We were a little nervous at first to rent a car but it was very easy and went smoothly and would recommend it to get the most out of your experience. My trip was absolutely amazing and Erika, Chito, and Juan contributed greatly to this. They were so friendly and great! Erika was so great in helping us figure out where to go and what to do. The cabana was clean and beautiful. The pool felt wonderful. Juan was an awesome chef. It was an absolutely amazing and authentic Mexican experience that I will remember forever and would greatly recommend to everyone!

Beautiful, Rustic Mexican experience. Erika was out of the Country but still made time to introduce herself via and make sure all was ok. Chito and Juan were great, Dinner was fantastic and highly recommended. Lovely garden with beautiful birds Location is great as you are half way between Coba and Tulum so easy to see both locations.

I am a Hungarian born in Slovakia with 25 years living in the US, now in Mexico. Moving to the Yucatan Peninsula has been my dream for the past 17 years, and I was able to finally follow my dream and build my very private paradise here. I love nature, animals, jungles, cenotes, and the sea. My husband is a local Mayan, who knows the area very well. We can give you lots of advise about places to visit in the area.
