I almost thought it looked too good to be true when I was lucky enough to find Villa Escapar for a family reunion right after Christmas. It was just amazing. The location is to die for, the "secret" back road ( have Manuel call ahead) to SolimonBay reminded us of our Home, Greece, in the 1970s, when it was unspoiled by tourism, with one little shack on the beach for delicious fish tacos. That is a must! Our group ranged in age from 89 to 12 and everyone had a terrific time. Manuel and Luisa were like family and we hugged and kissed good bye sincerely sad to go. The home cooked meals were just that- homecooked and good. Tulum restauants were great, don't miss Hartwood and Posada Margarita. The owner is very reasonable and helpful and I already have my deposit back and it hasn't been thirty days. There is something for everyone at the villa and nearby. We brought our own paddleboards and kayaks and had a blast. Oh- and one minor medical emergency worked out absolutely perfectly with the hospital in Tulum. Very professional and quick. I would go back tomorrow to VIlla Escapar. It really is as good as, if not better than, the photos.
