About Donna Funicello
In 1985, I discovered Tulum by accident. I allowed a friend to pressure me into going there and made my first non-work-related travel trip. HEL-LOW!!!
question of myself many times. Let's just say I had fallen in love with the people and the place.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for renting us your beautiful house in Tulum! It was the perfect way to ring in the New Year! We noticed on the day of the 31st that the neighbors had started to set out stuffed men on the street. We made our own stuffed man (stuffed with balloons)and set him out. We then discovered that they were meant to be burned, and furthermore had firecrackers embedded in the stuffing! We had such a great time wandering around the neighborhoods at midnight amid all the burning men and wishing everyone feliz ano nuevo! Everyone we met in Tulum was SO nice and helpful--Soco was amazing--gave us much advice, helped arrange for two friends whose luggage had been lost by the airline to have their bags delivered directly to the house, and did such a beautiful job tidying up after us and she even made us a flan for our last night. We went swimming with turtles in Akumal, to the secret beach you recommended (everyone's favorite), snorkeling in the Grand Ceynote, to Coba and the Tulum ruins, and best of all, just relaxing in hammocks and cookiong delicious dinners at the houses. Everyone loved your place so much. It was the perfect spot to return to at the end of each day's adventure. Thank you for all your helpful advice and tips and for being so responsive to all of our many emails.
