Why Teresa Moncayo chose Mexico

While working in Mexico in 1986, I visited Mahahual and dove the Chinchorro reef. I was hooked. Mahahual has that magic, it grows under your skin. I did not wanted to leave, but at that time there were other priorities i.e. raising three kids, job, etc. In 2000 I come back with a group of divers. We arrived at night. There was no electricity and it was hot and pitch dark. My friends were not too happy until the next morning when they could appreciated the beauty of the place. We dove Chinchorro. It was spectacular, we saw turtles, lobsters, parrot, trunk, ray, lots of barracudas. My friends were hooked as well but at that time I had to leave again.

In 2010 I had the opportunity to work in Mexico again. I was sent to Campeche, six hours away from Mahahual. So in the first opportunity I drove to Mahahual. Even though there were a lot of changes, a new Malecon, electricity, internet, several restaurants, Mahahual was as beautiful as ever.

At that time, I met a gringo from California. He was building a 12 condos complex north of the lighthouse. He was very passionate about his project. He showed me the drawing, the details of the construction. All was done to perfection above and beyond any building codes so I bought one unit. Later we become very good friends and I helped him with the completion of the construction, promotion and to obtain legal titles.

In February 2015 my wife and I moved from Houston to Mahahual. Finally living our dream.

What makes this condo unique

Start your day off by taking in the gorgeous sunrise over the Carribean Sea, letting the sea breeze whisk away your worries with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in our locally crafted furniture made of exotic Tzalam wood. Once you've finished breakfast out on the terrace take a trip down to the common area where you can swim laps in the pool, soak in the hot tub or socialize with the other guests by the palapa.

The more adventurous will feel compelled to bring a snorkel and fins down to the beach where you can catch sight of a plethora of local sea life including urchins, sea stars, vibrantly colored fish and even turtles if you're lucky. If you're SCUBA certified or you just want to snorkel then catch a dive boat out to Banco Chinchorro, the second largest coral reef in the worl, one of the world's premiere shipwreck diving spots an atoll reef where you can explore sunken Spanish galleons from the 1600's in addition to swimming with stingrays, eels, and the largest lobsters you'll ever see. Finish the dive trip by eating lunch on a remote beach on one of the atoll islands inhabited by local fisherman, iguanas and crocodiles.

Underwater isn't the only way to enjoy the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea. Take a 5 minute walk down to the fishing town of Mahahual where you can find catamaran's for sailing, daily fishing trips or just relax in a beach cabana on the the talcum white sands as you soak in the sun with that perfect summer drink to keep you cool and hydrated.

If you don't feel like preparing lunch there are several restaurants located on the boardwalk where you can dine on fresh catches of the day including fish fillets, shrimp tacos, grilled lobster or a multitude of international options including Mediterranean, Indonesian and Italian. Stop by the local gelateria for dessert. As the sun sets is the perfect time to stop by one of the many massage parlors for a beach side massage that will leave you calm and invigorated.

Luxury Condo ,few feet front the ocean. Spectacular Caribbean views
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Beautiful property with beautiful ocean front view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with 2 friends, rented this condo for a week, to do some scuba diving at Banco Chinchorro. We arrived just after sunset. Teresa was there to let us in our unit. She's a very nice lady, and explained everything we needed to know. The place is beautiful and well equipped. Very quiet location, and we enjoyed coffee on the patio every morning watching the gorgeous sunrises. You will not be disappointed with anything about this place. Our only regret was that we could only stay 1 week.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this unit and were very happy with everything! The view is amazing and the layout of the condo was perfect for our family of four. We even had extended family over one night for pizza and game night and the living room/kitchen area more than accommodated our group. A few minor issues arose and were taken care of immediately.......for example, the wifi didn't work properly at first and a technician was in our unit within 20 minutes of when I spoke with Osmara. The only other thing was the door lock and this was taken care of within 3 minutes. These things inevitable come up from time to time when traveling and we were very impressed with the way they were handled. Everything was great and we will definitely stay here again! Book with confidence!
