My name is Marino in 1998 I began building in what I envisioned would become a family getaway set in the midst of a nearby pristine jungle. In 1999, I completed the first incarnation of Taninah. Over the course of 4 glorious years my family and I enjoyed Taninah as our private and secret retreat. During this time we continually added elements transforming Taninah into our version of paradise. In 2003, we decided to turn Taninah into the most unique vacation experience and exotic rental property in the Riviera Maya.
Marino Tomacelli purchased this villa in 1997
In 1997 we decided to look for property in Mexico's famed Riviera Maya near Playa del Carmen.
At the time, we lived in Playa and our initial intention was to buy a small parcel we could develop for a weekend home...a place we could go to escape from Playa del Carmen’s ever growing popularity and explosive growth.
In October of 1998, despite the fact we still did not have an access road, we started clearing our property. This meant hiking nearly two miles through dense jungle on narrow surveyor's paths while carrying whatever tools and supplies were required to get the job done.
Just eight months after the first underbrush was cleared, we finished the initial incarnation of our dream which included the Casa, basic landscaping and our original pool area.
Over the years (guided by the desire to create the perfect, most ideal place for our own family) we have continually made improvements and added elements to Taninah.
On the surface, we are certain that you and your family will enjoy our unique and exotic guest houses along with all the fun and exciting installations and amenities we've added; however, our deepest desire is that the natural beauty, peaceful atmosphere, and unforgettable ambiance of Taninah will revitalize your souls as it has ours.
It is with great honor and pride we offer our private jungle retreat, our passion, our paradise to you and your family.

Taninah is truly incomparable, a singularly exceptional vacation experience you and your entire family will never forget.
What a marvelous jungle paradise – much fun was had by all – young and old! The zip line was a favorite! A fantastic place for our big and growing family to meet up and share time together. Impeccable service, terrific food, and lots to explore under a canopy of trees! We’ll never forget our time here!The Smiths
We rented this property out with our friends for our wedding week. We had the most amazing time. There was a lot to do on the property although it was not easy getting trips off the property which had to be planned in advance and were not always on time. I would suggest each party renting a car or van that would fit all their guests and that would make it much easier. The food was absolutely amazing and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous! We actually arranged our schedules not to miss one of the delicious meals! This was the trip of a lifetime and we certainly hope to return. Our love to all the guys and the animals!
Our group consist of 7 adults(long time friends from all over the states) and 10 children(ages 2-13). I would have to say that this vacation was the best vacation we have ever been on. Karl and his staff take care of your every need. The food is amazing and fresh. Taninah had it all for everyone. Our kids kept so busy with everything that the adults were able to relax, which does not happen on many family vacations:-) We will be back very soon.
Thanks Kathy and Marino.
Taninah is a unique experience!
It is nestled far enough into the jungle to feel truly "out there" and yet features a bevy of modern amenities which makes it feel much like a modern resort, without any of the polytstone decor so common to the properties along the Riviera Maya.
The lodgings are varied and comfortable and the grounds are beautiful. Though the grounds are impressive, the amenities seemingly endless, and the private grotto awe inspiring, it is the staff that puts the experience over the top. The tireless, all Mayan staff work hard to ensure each meal is prepared when you want it, how you want it, and to a consistently delicious standard. The friendly staff walks the fine line of being readily available and yet never in the way - it's an impressive balancing act indeed.
It is important for people to remember that Taninah is an authentic experience and as it's in the jungle, you are going to hear the sounds of (sometimes loud) frogs at night, and you may (depending on the weather) deal with mosquitoes. There are bugs, and though we didn't see any, there may be snakes. Taninah is safe for sure, but if you're looking for the Disney version of Mexico, this is not it, and thank goodness for that. If you're looking for a one of a kind vacation experience, then this is the place for you. The owners and creators of Taninah have given life to something truly special in the jungle of Mexico's Riviera Maya!
We look forward to coming back at some point in the future.
We just returned from our fourth multi-generational family vacation at Taninah so tanned and relaxed we can hardly write the review! Imagine waking up in a private jungle villa to the sound of wild parrots, taking a morning swim in the fresh water cenote (cave with stalagmites and stalactites), and then walking to the outdoor kitchen for fresh squeezed orange juice, Mexican coffee and a full breakfast. Between the delicious Mexican/Mayan meals, you can swim in the pool, soak in the hot tub, walk on the jungle path or play miniature golf. There is also a game room, library, gym, basketball court, zip line, and in ground trampoline, and it is all for just your family.
My teenagers loved the water slide, ping pong and pool tables, the trips to adventure parks and beaches, and the in-home theatre. My sister’s younger kids couldn’t get enough of the jungle gyms, board games, air hockey, and playing soccer with the staff. Meanwhile, my parents loved lying in the hammocks, reading by the pool and taking long walks. For me, the magic was having all the meals, chores and planning taken care of, so that every day stretched in front of me with the question “What do I feel like doing today?”.
If you are considering a vacation at Taninah – just do it. It is a one of a kind opportunity for privacy, adventure and fun. At night, after the staff has turned down your beds and the kids are asleep, walk outside, look up into millions of stars and hear the night sounds of the jungle. I guarantee you will know you made the right choice.
Our first visit to Taninah was fantastic! We can't thank you enough for the hospitality, activities and incredible food!! Leopoldo is the best! It is such a wonderful place to bring children. We look forward to our next visit!!
Thanks again for everything,
