Superhosts are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests.
The room #5 is the most recent room built: it is also the less rustic and more traditional one, with A/C. Located on the second floor of the building, it is a very bright room with a large bathroom. As all our rooms, it is fitted with many Mexican arts and crafts items.

The space
Casitas Kinsol is a Guest House with 8 rustic rooms for rent in Puerto Morelos, on the Mayan Riviera, 25 minutes South of the airport international of Cancun, conveniently located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, and 4 blocks from the main bus stop in town. It resides in the part of the town where the locals live (in a Mexican low income neighborhood), called "La Colonia" of Puerto Morelos and it is only 3 miles to the beach: this is the perfect location for a full immersion in a Mexican local neighborhood.
Surrounded by many eateries, grocery stands and stores, the guest house offers 8 romantic and rustic rooms and bungalows: 4 with kitchenettes and 4 without. All the rooms have basic amenities at low prices for double occupancy. The rooms come with private baths, hot showers, air fans and each with unique decor designed by the owners. Most of the rooms come with WiFi. 3 dogs and a cat are full-time hosts on the property.

- All our rooms are now listed on AirBnB so that you can choose the one that you really like. We may have some rooms available even when the AirBnB calendars show no availability - Please contact us to inquiry about availability -

THE ROOM 5:
- The Modern Room is on the second floor on the southeast corner of the property above room 3. It is a tile and stucco designed room with one full-size (double) bed and one futon accommodating a 3rd person ($12.00 US extra per night). It offers a large full bathroom with plenty of natural light (through a skylight), hot shower, ample storage spaces. It comes with air conditioning ($5.00 US Dollars extra per day). It has screened windows throughout. No kitchenette.

A DIFFERENT CONCEPT IN LODGING:
- No luxury. Rustic bungalows / huts (palapas) and rooms with a touch of sophistication that comes from the unique and personal decoration of each room. Only 8 cabins/palapas (bungalows) give a cozy ambiance and friendly atmosphere. Some rooms come a thatched roof - The breakfast is NOT provided -

A CONVENIENT LOCATION:
- You are downtown Puerto Morelos, the township (not the beach / port area), two blocks from the main square on the West side of Highway MX307; however you may wake up to the multiple songs of the birds and the roosters.
- Less than five minute drive to the beach (3 miles). We rent bicycles (at extra cost) so that the beach appears even closer.
- Easy access to cheap public transportation (minibus or taxis). The first class long range bus stop (ADO) is 3 blocks away, within walking distance.
- Half way between Cancun and Playa del Carmen; this is the perfect location to explore the Riviera Maya (25 minutes to the airport of Cancun, 35 minutes to Cancun, 30 minutes to Playa del Carmen, 1 h 45 minutes to Tulum, 4 hours to Chichen-Itza).
- In the heart of the local population: this means that you can find plenty of affordable and tasty small restaurants and eateries within 2 or 3 blocks around the property. Convenient stores, mini-market stores, grocery stores, bakeries, butchers, and also fruits and vegetables stands are nearby: get a quart of freshly squeezed juice for less than MX $20.00 Pesos -

Location

Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico

The town of Puerto Morelos is splitted in two parts: the beach area that is the touristic area and the township also known as "La Colonia" / "El Crucero". There is a swamp area that is 2 miles wide and it divides the town between the port area (touristic area) and the township (the local area). Casitas Kinsol is located in the heart of the neighborhood called "La Colonia", 2 blocks from the main square / park of the township. Casitas Kinsol is NOT located by the beach.

Casitas Kinsol is surrounded by many eateries, small restaurants, convenience stores, mini-markets, grocery stands and stores, bakeries, butcher, …, Casitas Kinsol is the perfect location for a full immersion in a local Mexican (low income) neighborhood; it is not the most glamorous one: just a typical low income Mexican area. Expect kids playing on the streets and some dogs barking at everyone on the streets, Mexican music when celebrating events (birthday, baptism ceremonies, "quincenieras"), ... loud and noisy vehicles (without muffler), ...
Everything is at walking distance. The food is very inexpensive and very tasty (packed with local flavors). It is safe to walk at any time of the day or the night; and the locals are very friendly.

- 2 blocks from the main square / park where the nightlife during the weekends is intense and very local.
- 4 blocks from the long-range bus stop: these buses can either take you North, towards Cancun or South, towards Playa del Carmen, Tulum and the border with Belize. There are plenty of buses (first class buses from the ADO company) or small vans (called "colectivos"); they run from 5:00 am until midnight every day of the year.

- 1 block from the local urban buses drop-off.

Born in 1962 in Germany, my mom was from Colombia, my dad was from Germany. Since the age of 5, I moved from country to country and was exposed to many different cultures: Spain, Columbia, Mexico, Panama, Dominican Republic, Belize, Guatemala, Switzerland, France, USA … My parents would never speak to my brother and myself in German, therefore, I never learnt German. My mom, Luz Acevedo was an artist who exposed her oil paintings in major permanent expositions such as “El Jardin del Arte” in Mexico City, and Tepozotlan (Mexico State). I studied to be a biochemist engineer and I discovered at a young age that I love paintings. I self taught myself different techniques such as oil color, water colors, acrylics and collage. My love for arts and my passion as a bio-engineer bring me to my current project: acrylic painting on natural leaves from plants found in the Yucatan peninsula (by Cancun on the Mexican Riviera) in Mexico. I have worked in the eco-archaeological park, Xcaret, as a project leader in 3 major departments: the botanical garden, the aquarium and the cultural events. I am an active member of an Aztec dancing group, the “Concheros”: these dancers aim at preserving the traditions of the natives and they strive in providing the coming generations with the values and philosophy of life of the native ethnic groups that show deep respect to the nature. My current project combines the essence of nature with the techniques of acrylic painting, depicting the expression of native cultures in their traditional costumes and attires. The main challenge of the project resides in the diversity of supports on which I paint. The uniqueness of each leave leads to an ad-equation of the painting technique and therefore each piece is unique cannot be reproduce. EXPOSITIONS - from March 1989 to November 1991, “Galeria Azteca“, Costa Careyes Hotel in Jalisco, Mexico - from May 1992 to November 1993, “Galeria del Sol” San Carlos , Guaymas in Sonora, Mexico - from January 1994 to October 1998, “Xcaret” Museum of Cultures Eco-Archaeological park Mayan Riviera, Mexico - from January 1997 to October 1998, “Quinto Sol” Fine Mexican Art, Cozumel, Mexico - from April 1999 to December 2004, “Maroma” Hotel on the Mayan Riviera, Mexico - from April 2000 to Today, “Casitas Kinsol”, Puerto Morelos on the Mayan Riviera, Mexico - from February 2004 to September 2006, “Ceiba del Mar” Hotel & Spa Resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico - from May 2007 to November 2008, “Acorn Benevolent” gallery, Grand Avenue, Saint-Paul, MN
