Guest access
Guests in our three villas share access to our dock and the hammocks and lounges under its palapa. Free to use are three single sit-on-top kayaks and an excellent canoe, for exploring the laguna or paddling to our nearest favorite restaurant. Also available are a couple inflatables, a pile of foam noodles, a few children's lifejackets, and some masks, snorkels and fins.

Other things to note
We ask guests to check in between 12 and 6pm, so please plan your flights and drive time accordingly. We are 4 hours south of Cancun airport, the last 2 hours of which have almost no cell signal or streetlights. We are 40 minutes from Chetumal airport, where evening flight arrivals are often delayed. If you expect to arrive after 6 pm, please check with us before booking to confirm whether we can accommodate a later arrival.

You are always welcome to arrive early and relax on the dock until your villa is ready (we have a separate bathroom and changing area). On your departure day, you are welcome to enjoy the dock and laguna after checking out. Late checkout may be available.

We love animals. We have six friendly dogs who like new people, especially kids. Airbnb system defaults make it look like they live in the Palapa, but they do not! They live in our house, at the other end of the property. They spend most of their time near the house, unless you love dogs, in which case they know it and may hang out near you. They also like well-socialized dog visitors who are good with cats (we have two). If you would like to bring yours, please do!, but let us know first. You and your pooches are welcome to join us for the morning jungle walk. :-)

Location

Bacalar, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Our peaceful, relaxing compound offers unparalleled privacy, with three villas spread along more of Laguna Bacalar's lush shoreline than anywhere else this close to the town of Bacalar. The town's good restaurants, markets, and low-key entertainment are 4 km south of us.
