Response from P:
There is no running water to the village of Punta Allen. The village is supplied from a cenote via a water line across the lagoon to a storage tank and then gravity fed to the houses. Some folks have tanks underground or on the ground but, alas our is on the roof and there is not enough pressure to fill them. As I do not have a possible resolution date as to when the leak will be repaired I feel it is unsafe to host guests at this time. Sincerely,P

Good value. Would be a perfect place for backpackers to stay for several days or a week. Mosquitos inside and out were heavy, but it could just be that time of year...

After having a truly adventurous driving experience, P. greeted us warmly and kindly! We truly enjoyed the casita which had rustic charm but clean and had everything that we needed! We loved the small town and people, everyone was friendly and welcoming - what a gem! The casita and town make you feel like a local and we regret not staying longer! We would LOVE to come back but will absolutely take the boat from Tulum into Punta Allen next time. If you really love to get away from it ALL - this is the place!!

The casita is basic but it is as per the photos and as we expected. We thought it was fantastic! We got clear instructions on how to get there so found it very easily. It is comfortable and has everything you need. The kitchen only has a 2 burner stove, but in terms of utensils, pots and pans, etc it is very well equipped. Eskies and a BBQ are also included in the kitchen, along with a BBQ griller, all of which was great for a picnic and cooking over a fire on a nearby beach. We were there one day after rain and on our first night there were mozzies, so pack mosquito repellent and mozzie coils. But after the first night they weren't really a problem. Alberro, the caretaker, is very friendly and helped us out with hints on places to see. He also organised a boat tour for us, and lent me some fishing gear. Punta Allen is great. Very relaxing, friendly people, great, cheap food, good fishing, and everything we hoped for. We were sad to leave. Some things to note though: 1. The road is very rough! We come from Darwin, Australia and I am used to rough roads but this is probably the worst I have been on. It took us 3.5hrs to do the 40-45km from Tulum. It isn't boggy, just lots of potholes. Pamela suggested we take a boat out there and whilst I did enjoy the drive, I think if I were to go again I would take her advice. We had a 2WD Dodge Journey as we couldn't hire a 4WD in Cancun and I wouldn't suggest taking anything less. We saw people in smaller cars. Some turned back, others took a very long time to get there. 2. The electricity in Punta Allen only operates from ~10am-2pm and 6pm to 12am. Not a big deal but you don't have 24hr power and some shops were closed when the power was (URL HIDDEN) it is a good idea to grab beers around lunchtime :) 3. There is no ATM in Punta Allen and I don't think anyone has visa, so take all the cash you require. We only had just enough for 7 days and could only do 1 boat tour, which was 1700pesos for a private boat for two adults and two kids. 4. There is a small beach near the lighthouse which is fantastic and has good size bonefish only 20m off the beach. It is well worth the 40-50min walk from the village. But avoid sunset as the mozzies are thick!
