Punta Allen, located in the Sian Kahn biosphere in the Maya Rivera, has so much to offer. Firstly, Punta Allen is an international destination for the avid fisherman who come to catch tarpon, bonefish, snook,and permit, the grand slam of fly fishing. There are many other varieties of deep sea fish as well: including marlin, wahoo, dolphin, barracuda, grouper and snapper. You can fish off the beach or hire one of the many ex
Punta Allen itself is a small unique pueblo that boasts a thriving fishing community which specializes in commercial harvesting of Longostas(caribbean lobsters or crayfish) from the reefs just off shore. The local fishing co-ops are the only people allowed to take this catch, however longostas can be purchased at the local co-op in town. The population is predominantly Maya and most speak only Spanish, You will find that just a little Spanish will go a long way here so it is really no problem with the language.
Casa Lunita was created by an artist/builder and you will find much attention to details to make your stay comfortable and visually pleasant. This includes a full kitchen where you will be able to create whatever you wish from the easily available local produce ,fish and meats. Casa Lunita is designed to have maximum exposure from the breeze off the caribbean but can also be closed up if it becomes too cool. You will find it very pleasant most of the year ---there are also fans in every room for those extra hot days and evenings. The tile floors and thick stucco walls, screened in porch and windows keep things cool and bug free. You will also find parking in front for two cars if you will be driving to P. A.
Enjoy the fishing, boating, birding, walking, sugar-sand beaches, snorkeling, kayaking, guided excursions, and all around tranquility of this exotic and unique natural wonderland during your stay at Casa Lunita. There you will be able to completely relax and recharge. With one of the worlds finest beaches and the only beach front Mayan ruins in the Americas, Tulum is just an 1.5 hours away down the beach road that connects it to Punta Allen.. Tulum has many restaurants, bars, shopping of all kinds, and in the evening, live music and a bit more action, if you feel you need it.

Life for me has been an interesting trip through many diverse worlds---the one thread that ties it all together is art and the idea of beauty in our surroundings. Growing up in South Florida, the Tropics have always been a major influence to my life and work. I feel that if one is capable of adding beauty to the world then that should become part of their mission. In the building of Casa Lunita ,drawings of Mexico and Cuba, fabricating Sculpture and Jewelry, I attempt to give that extra warmth and understanding that should be a part of everyones life. This is what I do on each palete that is created for me.
In 2000 I bought property on Tulum Beach but sold this in 2008. Where would I go from there. It took awhile to realize that just 50kl. down the dirt road through the Sian Ka'an Biophere there was a small Pueblo that I had always thought would be a wonderful place to stay. Punta Allen is a unique pueblo in just as unique location.Punta Allen has an economic base of commercial fishing and tourism that relys on the environmental wonders of the Sian Ka'an Bioshere. Plus the added attraction of some of the best fly fishing in the world. For these reasons I decided to create a single Villa Style rental and small studio for myself.
At Casa Lunita you will feel privacy while being in the heart of a thriving fish village in the Sian Ka'an Biophere. Casa Lunita supplies the renter with most of what one needs to feel completely at home--a complete kitchen , good linens , and beachfront location with acess to guided fishing,diving,birding,deserted beaches and more. Within a few steps there are restuarants with great Mexican/ Caribe cusine, tropical drinks and of course Cervezas Mexicano. Grocery Stores are close along with a liquer store across town near the pier on Ascension Bay (5 blocks down the sand streets.)There is a town square two blocks away where festivals and events take place regularly. All in the Mexican/Maya tradition. One can always get great fresh fruits and vegitables if you catch the trucks that come in from Tulum and Valladolid selling an array fresh foods. If one is looking to treat their spiritual side ,then it shouldn't be hard to find a massage,yoga or whatever else may be happening that week. Punta Allen is a slice of life that is not too polished and is there to be enjoyed by those who are lucky enough to stay and aware enough to take it all in.
