About this listing
Esta es una casa, grande, moderna de piedra en una rancheria de 100 personas a 15 kms de Valladolid, ciudad colonial, y muchas sitios arqueologicos cercanos, incluyendo Chichen. Sus vecinos son muy hospitalarios, tranquilos y respetuosos. Bienvenidos
This is a large modern stone house in a Mayan village of 100 people in the jungle 10 miles from the colonial city, Valladolid and many other ruins, including Chichen Itza (25 minutes by car) . Your neighbors are super hospitable, quiet and respectful. The unique home is a small organic farm, but you aren't expected to work! You have a large separate bedroom, bathroom and share my kitchen, and the whole house .The top deck or observatory is good for stars, and for birds early in a.m. You are close to both Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico beaches (1-1/2 to 2 hour drive or bus ride) and resorts, and have an in-house guide if desired in your host who has lived there 12 years. Cancun, and Merida, the capital of Yucatan and a spectacular, cultured city, are only 2 hours away by driving or bus. You have cellular phone service, wi-fi, 3G internet (sometimes weak), but there is no TV, nor cable . In the nearby Valladolid, internet access is free, or cheap and plentiful. The village is 3 miles off the main highway and joined to it by a good, asphalt paved road. With advanced notice, you have access to two or possibly more good bicycles to ride to the neighboring Cuncunul where buses, taxis and mini buses make frequent stops, or through the jungle to a beautiful church in Uayma (3 hrs. RT.)
The whole home, shared respectfully while they are here.
Interaction with guests
As much as they want and I have time for.
Other things to note
I prefer that if a guest is not able to sleep well ( as has happened rarely for example due to the roosters crowing early on a full moon!) or is uncomfortable in any way that they notify me immediately, wake me up, etc.
respectful of neighbors; smoking only outside. No loud party without previous arrangement.
