We were at Casa Amanecer for three fabulous weeks. It was very hard to leave & would have liked to stay all Winter.
I can only endorse all the comments made by others. Carole the owner was also a wonderful local guide & source of information.While Celestun is a peaceful Mexican fishing village we were always busy though had plenty of time for shelling & reading. The Sat TV & Broadband Internet were much appreciated. A car is useful but not necessary. We traveled to Cancun over nighted there & took the Bus to Merida as there are many more convenient flights there than to Merida where flights generally arrive late in the evening. There is an hourly Oriente bus to Celestun from the Noreste Bus Station in Merida which is short Taxi ride from the Came ADO long distance Bus station. Food prices& restaurant meals in Celustun are very low compared to the US & the great fresh Fish from the fish Market is about $2/lb . We really enjoyed shopping in town & riding back to the house in one of the many Tricycle taxis for a cost of $1 US.This was our first trip to Mexico mainly because of all the horror stories but to visit Celestun is no different from visiting a small town in the US the Mayan people all have a smile & are very welcoming. For the lucky few Celestun & Casa Anamacer is an undiscovered vacation retreat long may it remain that way.
