Week in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Corazon de la Tortuga, for the 6 of us, was the PERFECT place to stay in the Tulum/Akumal area! It is just a bit away from any towns, creating a "get away from it all" feeling, yet only 10 minutes or less to Tulum for shopping, and Akumal, a quaint little beach town with great snorkeling/diving, (and cute shops)! Their are many Cenotes and tours very near by and also great and close proximity to the Tulum and Coba archeological sites. The Blue Sky Pizza place just down the road was easy, and great food for a reasonable price, and just across from the Cenote! We used the beautiful and extensively equipped kitchen most of the time, as it was such a joy to cook in such a magnificent kitchen and home.
The most amazing thing about the homes location, was the turtles nesting on the home's beach EVERY night while we were there! Four to Eight of them layed their eggs in carefully selected sites every night we were there, and tanks to Zubet's expert guidance, we were able to witness this without disturbing them. It is an experience none of us will ever forget! My boys and I made our way through the surf and snorkeled in the reef off the beach a few times and saw great sea life... the turtles that were waiting to lay, sea fans, sponges, larger reef fish, corals, etc. If you plan to do this here bring full foot coverage fins, or fins with booties, as the entry and exit is over rock and coral. Plan your entry and exit point for the area with the fewest breakers for best ease of access.
The home itself is superbly laid out and furnished with beautiful hand crafted furnishings to accomodate three separate and private sleeping and bathing areas, with perfectly furnished and confortable "common spaces" in between. The selection of movies for the home theater in the upper living area was great, and provided entertainment when we wanted to come in from seeing the turtles at night. Be sure also, to bring your i-pod to connect to the home's completely inter-wired sound system, even providing music to the pool area and incredible roof patio if you desire.
Of all the many places by the sea I've stayed in my life, this is the only one in which I was torn as to whether to stay inside, or out on the veranda listening to the sea... It was THAT nice an accomodation!

Of all the places we have stayed in
Mexico and around the world, Corazon de
la Tortuga
was a winner! Our gracious hostess,
Zubet was most friendly and welcoming,
her recommendations
for sightseeing and dining were perfect.
The staff was efficient and friendly and
our chef made dining
at home a real treat.

Corazon de la Tortuga is a beautiful
property and a perfect
location for sightseeing. With all the
turtles nesting this
wonderful peaceful home certainly lived
up to its name.

Well, I hope we didn't leave you in any
doubt about how much
we enjoyed our stay, and how much we
appreciated your hospitality
and thoughtfulness. So, thank you once
again for a memorable holiday.
We hope to return one day, and see the
turtles hatch.
