Xamach Dos, the secluded jewel of the Sian Ka'n Nature Reserve, just south of Tulum, Mexico.
Perfect for the adventurous individual or group, we are located on our own hidden Caribbean Bay, with an unspoiled reef system,, miles of deserted beaches, an incredible array of tropical wildlife, even our own hidden Mayan ruins!
There are 6 cabanas to chose from, each with it's own bathroom, and each with its own individual personality.
The Treetop- an amazing experience, on the water's edge, yet hidden in the palm trees. 1 queen bed, deck overlooking the ocean, beautiful bath with tiled shower/tub.
Cabana Balam- another amazing experience- totally secluded in the jungle yet close to the water. Incredible stone and coral shower, 1 queen bed.
Cabana Sol- Relax on the large front porch, take in the ocean views surrounded by custom stone and coral decor. 2 queen beds, large stone and coral bathroom.
Caban Luna- very private, on the far side of the property, with a nice porch of it's own. 2 queen beds, bath and shower.
Casa Grande- 2 bedrooms, each opening to a private lanai, spacious living room, nice bath. 1 queen bed and 2 full beds,
queen bed and 2 full beds.
Casa Secreta- smal but cool, invisble to the rest of the place. Custom stone and conch shell shower, 1 queen bed.
We have a great little restaurant in the middle of the property, a great place to hang out, view the beach, play games, and enjoy some of the best food on the coast.
Did I say Xamach Dos was a great place for a wedding?
Contact me about renting the whole place.
Ranked #1 in the Sian Ka'an (Tripadvisor.
We are away from the touristy places, a chance to see the Caribbean the way it used to be.
We are located deep in the Sian Ka'an park, there is no public transit, rental car is best, preferably Jeep or SUV, although a regular car can make it. A taxi, or transfer from the airport are also options, but I suggest the rental car.
Other Things to Note
We are not in the hotel zone, we are south, down the Boca Paila road, in the Sian Ka'an park, beautiful and remote.
We loved this place! It is a family owned and run hideaway. We made quick friends and lots of laughs with the owners and small staff. Super chill atmosphere, great food and very, very relaxing. You can choose to hang out in the big welcoming open cabana and socialize through out the day (which is where beverages are available as needed and where the scheduled meals are prepared with love on a schedule). You will not be disappointed with your meals as they were outstanding! There are plenty hammocks spread through out the large tree lined grounds to soak up some sun or shade to relax in. There are also lounge chairs in the soft sand out in the open.
Privacy is also easy to find as all the cabanas are spread apart from each other in this spacious setting.
There are plenty of pelicans and frigates to view among other smaller beach combing birds, however the highlight for us was the abundance of osprey soaring at many times very low in the afternoon sky directly above us!
Getting here is a bit of a commitment as the road is challenging so give yourself several days to relax here but it's all worth while.
Yes. The road sucks. So what?
This place is magic. I think the crap road serves to amplify this even more. When you arrive, you feel like you've earned it. And it makes it that much more awesome. I stayed in the treehouse by the ocean. Don't think. Book this now. I spent my time reading a book in all the different hammock options. Tasty food as well. Dan & Michelle have something really special and you'd be foolish not to drop in and say hello.
Stunningly beautiful. So serene. My boyfriend and I were spoiled as the only guests on the tropical property for two of the three nights. We loved the treehouse & spent each evening talking over candlelight on our balcony. Was a treat to be there even as it poured. Quite romantic. The hounds are adorable. The staff was kind. The breakfasts & dinners were delicious and they accommodated for our pescetarian wishes--just be aware that all drinks & food are tallied up at the end. You can settle your bill w/cash or card. As budget travelers, we were just a bit concerned how much we were racking up--felt awkward to clarify. Also, you're not supposed to bring your own liquor/beer (at least not to the dinner cabana. We sipped our own supply in our cabana & on the beach, prob frowned upon).
The road was very very rough--potholes and small lakes due to all the rain, but our rental Jetta made it in one piece. Quite the adventure and well worth the worry.
Overall: Def recommend. Just beware Dan might try to convince you to play "air paddle" on the bar. My dude & I were too lost in each other's eyes to partyparty but other guests on night three really threw down as we star gazed by the surf.
We had to cancel because of the road. You NEED a jeep, a normal car cant go there. We were hoping to hear back from him but we didnt. Im sure this place is amazing but it would have been nice to be warning of this road. 20 kms would take 1h30.
OMG!!!! If you're reading this you're on the right track to something off the beaten path that will forever be a day dream when you go back to your daily routine. Oh hello;) my husband and I stayed at the treetop cabana for 3 nights, and it wasn't long enough!!! Yeah yeah the road sucks to get there or whatever and there's Mosquitos sometimes but once you get there you will feel like you're in that movie the beach!! You know what I'm talking about right?!! The part where Leonardo decaprio finally makes it to paradise and he drops to his knees on the beach, sheds a tear of joy and sits in awe;) yeah you got it people!!! Let me skip to the food real quick... We are vegetarians. The food that was prepared for us our three nights I pretty much moaned the entire time I was eating;) both of us lol.. It was by far the best food we'v had on our two week getaway;) staff- are you kidding the staff was like family by the end of our stay;) There were a family of dogs that were so fricking sweet y'all!! They swam with us, napped with us, guarded our tree house at night and took walks with us!! OMG the beach was amazing!! No one else there except us;) iguanas everywhere, perfectly placed palms, and scenic views every way you turn;) this is a dope resort for people who don't like resorts;) the only sad part about our trip to the tree top cabana was that we didn't get to meet Dan!! Next time though;) 150 gold stars!!
We had an amazing end to our vacation at Xamach Dos! Michelle was extremely welcoming and since we were the only guests we enjoyed getting to know her a bit and hearing more about Sian Ka'an. She and Armando made sure we were well fed the whole time - the whole red snapper, caught that day by the neighbors, was my favorite! The Treetop Cabana is wonderful, the prefect blend of luxury and rustic, nothing beats waking up to the sunset from bed. We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling off the reef, and were floored by the stars at night. We only wish we had had more time, so we'll definitely have to be back. Our stay at Xamach Dos was a huge highlight of our entire time in Mexico, it is a must visit!!
