We had a wonderful stay in Tampalam. The house was very comfortable for our young family and we all loved playing in the clear, shallow waters. The beach is one of the most beautiful we've seen - extremely soft sand, turquoise waters and gradual shore. Perfect for our two small children! We also enjoyed the complete privacy afforded by the remote location. During our entire stay, we saw exactly one other person on the beach. The house is a good thirty minute drive from the nearest neighbor and close to an hour from the nearest town (Mahahual). Being alone on such a beautiful beach was a real treat. As with most any beach these days, depending on the currents, you will see trash and debris washed ashore. While the house and its beachfront is meticulously cleaned every day, there is debris located along the shore a few hundred meters down the beach. It was an important eye-opener for our whole family. It did not detract from our visit - indeed it enriched our experience - and we very much hope to return soon. Finally, Abraham, the caretaker, was fantastic. He helped our son look for hermit crabs, hung our hammock and brought us fresh coconuts every day.
