Come relax in our El Cuyo paradise! Enjoy the breeze of the ocean, Caribbean music, fish and ceviche, relax in a hammock, listen to the palm trees moving in the wind with a cold coconut in your hand!
We are located 50 meters or 300 steps from the beach (between the house and the beach is another house and the dunes), 1 block away from the fishermen’s port harbor and 4 blocks from the pier and main plaza. Major renovations of the house were just completed.
El Cuyo is a small very relaxed and quaint fishermen’s port village located in the National Biosphere Preserve of Rio Lagartos on the East coast of Yucatan. It takes 2.5 hours from Cancun, 2 hours from Playa del Carmen and 3.5 hours from Merida to get here driving through beautiful landscape of the Yucatan and passing many small Mayan villages. On one side El Cuyo is bordered by a river which provides habitat to countless plants, birds and pink flamingos. On the other side are endless almost always empty natural beaches. The most significant economic activity in El Cuyo is fishing. El Cuyo is also famous for kite surfing since the wind and shallow sea here provide perfect conditions for the sport.
El Cuyo is perfect for those who love nature, want to completely get away from the hectic activities of daily life, and want to experience the real coastal Mexico. There are no large hotels, restaurants or shopping opportunities. There is nature, peace, quiet, great seafood, great kite surfing, great fishing.
