Our week long vacation at La Palapa was a unique experience! The house was spacious, clean and well equipped (lots of clean towels, fully equip’d kitchen etc). All the doors and windows had screens so we could leave them open all the time to enjoy the breeze. Sleeping upstairs in the palapa was delightful- huge tall roof with so much light. The house is situated on the edge of town and very peaceful, but still easy enough to get into town ($6 cab fare). Large private outdoor space with nice garden and pool, pool guy came twice during our week long stay. We enjoyed sitting out eating (and drinking) at the large table under the shade-sail, then jumping into the pool to cool off. We are both painters and found much inspiration around us, either sitting poolside or indoors to paint, and with so much space we could leave our equipment out.
The town of Puerto Morelos is about 10 minutes by taxi, or a 20 minute walk along the beach. Locals are all friendly and helpful- our very limited Spanish was not a problem. Lots of choices to eat out, one restaurant even arranged a special private party on their rooftop palapa for us and a large group of friends.
Colleen, the owner was wonderful- the booking process was so easy and she provided us with lots of advice and tips on what to do there. Her love for La Palapa, the town and its people was obvious and infectious. She went above and beyond to ensure our vacation was enjoyable and relaxing. We will be back soon
