|Minimum Stay||2 - 5 nights|
Follow the Boca Paila Road into the Sian Ka'an Biosphere and discover a world like no other. The Boca Paila Peninsula is a narrow strip of land with beautiful, pristine Caribbean beaches on one side and one and a half million acres of protected mangrove lagoons on the other.
We are a complete Eco Resort, with 24 hour solar power, and many of the improvements were constructed from driftwood, washed up bamboo, coral, and other materialsfound close by.
Our property, Xamach Dos, features six unique cabanas. CABANA LUNA- with 2 queen beds. CABANA SOL-with 2 queen beds. TREETOP CABANA-one queen bed. CASA GRANDE-with 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with 2 full beds. CABANA BALAM-one queen bed
Xamach Dos has a beautiful palapa restaurant for guests, with incredible food at reasonable prices. It is also a perfect place for a secluded wedding.
The warm, Caribbean bay waters are excellent for swimming, kayaking and snorkeling, with an unspoiled reef system just a hundred or so yards from the powder sand beach. Take one of our new kayaks out in the bay and explore the reef, or take a boat trip into the Laguna with Mayan fishing and nature guides - it is full of hundreds of bird species, wildlife and overgrown Mayan ruins. Wait till you see the stars at night!
If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, this is the place for you! We were recently featured in INTERNATIONAL LIVING Magazine as one of the best places to get away!

I purchased the property in 2004, after falling in love with the Sian Ka'an Reserve, an amazing 1.5 million acres of secluded jungles, mangrove lagoons teeming with hundreds of bird species, incredible fishing, unspoiled reef systems, and most importantly an incredible sense of privacy, well away from the crowded hotel zones.
Everything you will see at Xamach Dos, I had something to do with. I built the Cabanas, the beautiful palapa restaurant, we have an incredible staff, headed by Francisca, an amazing cook who is rapidly gaining fame for her skills in the kitchen.
Staying here is like staying with family, you will love the feel and energy of Xamach Dos!
While at Xamach Dos there are many things to do. Kayak to the unspoiled reef system right offshore, fish for snapper and Barracuda right from the beach, explore our hidden ruins right across the road, or just find one of our many hammocks and spend the day relaxing!
"THREE YEARS RUNNING!"Once again, we chose Xamach Dos as our "decompression zone" Although we have travelled to the Tulum area 5 years in a row, never have we stayed in one place THREE times!!!! We love the atmosphere, the remote location, and of course the staff!!!! The food here is an experience all on it's own. Francesa and Anna have something magical happening in that kitchen! Although there are 4 different cabanas to choose from, we keep coming back to our favourite each year. We enjoy walking out of our door, into the sand that stretches all the way to the Caribbean. In a full 14 days of staying here over 3 years, I have yet to put even sandals on for the entire time. The remoteness means you aren't inundated with "outsiders" all day, yet you are still close enough to Tulum or Punta Allen if you need to make a quick trip for forgotten supplies. The owners have created a place in paradise, and you know right away it is a passion of theirs as much as a love. Going to Mexico without going to Xamach, is something I can't ever imagine myself doing.
If you are up for a little adventure, this is the place for you. we love that this is luxury jungle living. I mean who gets great food, wifi, and pillow top mattress in such a remote place. The road was a bit rough but we were prepared and pretty much new what to expect. So take your time and enjoy the views along with way. Bring bug spray, a flash and definitely need a good book. Plenty of hammocks to pick from. lots of beaches to walk and if you want they will take you to the ruins near the property. The staff are very trustworthy and helpful. All the cabanas have the owners unique personality built into them with drift wood and natural accents. The Tree Top Cabana is a must for a quiet romantic stay… one of my favs...Cant wait to get back.
We enjoyed our brief stay here in April, 2012. It is mostly as advertised, with great owners and staff, and the clientele - both young and old - were having fun and were interesting folks to meet - and by that I mean interesting in a very positive way. If you like rustic and remote, this is getting you there. We thought the cost was a bit high for the level of amenities provided (compared to other places we have stayed in the region), but we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others who want to have a personal, uncrowded experience away from the resort mentality that most other places, especially those up the coast in Tulum, seem to thrive on. And, yes, the road is about as crummy as it was the last time we checked out Sian Ka'an 15 years ago, and that's a good thing. It's not as great a buffer as it used to be, but the area is still pretty wild and remote and worth a visit.
A couple of years ago, our family had the good fortune to find this piece of unspoiled paradise! We only stayed 4 nights but loved it. We are looking forward to going back someday. It was unfortunate that we arrived a few days after Tropical Depression Andrew arrived and upset the beach and made the weather windy, but it was still paradise and we never regretted a moment of the get-away...with wonderful food and solitude for as long as you would walk on the beach. The water was warm and the sleeping palapa was heaven.
