Casa Uvero is a comfortable, three-bedroom home located 10 kilometers south of the town of Mahahual. It is completely tiled with spacious, arched porch & patio, and the rooftop terrace offers panoramic Caribbean views from your hammocks. It is a 3-minute stroll to the beach.
The main living space is on the second floor, bringing partial ocean views and continuous tropical breezes. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom and separate entrance, making it perfect for three couples to share. All rooms have air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and screened doors and windows. Includes wireless internet.
The main living space includes a living room, kitchen, large covered porch, master bedroom, and access to the rooftop terrace. The kitchen is fully equipped with full-size refrigerator, stove and oven. The island counter and the dining table on the outdoor patio both have seating for six. Two more spacious bedrooms are on the lower level, sharing a wide covered patio.
Stayed here a few years back and had a relaxing time. Really enjoyed the use of kayaks and the caretakers who lived a few minutes down the street. Also got a chance to check out Cenote Azul and Lago Bacalar which was pretty cool. A quick drive into town (and along the way) gives plenty of food and drink options as well as a pretty descent night life. So if you're sick of the resort scene like me then this is a great option!
The only thing I might do differently is fly into Chetumal rather than Cancun.... it's a long drive although very duable.
Mahahual (sometimes called Majahual) is the closest town and provides basic grocery shopping, restaurants, diving and other excursions. It was a sleepy little fishing village until the cruise ships discovered it in 2000. After Hurricane Dean hit in August 2007, the town rebuilt and the cruise ships returned in the fall 2008. A new malecon was built for walking along the beach in downtown. The beach side restaurants offer fresh fish and beverages next to the beautiful, blue lagoon, which is great for swimming and snorkeling.
There are a number of excursions that are a one to two hour drive from the house, including a couple of different Mayan ruins, and Lake Bacalar, which is a large freshwater lagoon of “seven colors” that is great for swimming and kayaking. Chetumal is the capital of the state of Quintana Roo where you can shop and visit the Museum of Mayan Culture.
