About Lizette Pinto

We are a family not a travel agency. We were born in Mérida, only 30 minutes to chelem. When I was growing my parents taught me to enjoy the beach during the summers

Why Lizette Pinto chose Progreso

Casa Tintinki was purchased to fullfill our dream : our kids ( we have 4)to grouw up enjoying the beach and the sea...and we did it! Now their are studygn their careers, but we have wonderful memories of great moments in this house so we want other families to enjoy this wonderful home

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hola Lizette,



Lo siento por contestar tarde, hemos estado muy ocupados en los trabajos.



La verdad que se echa de menos ahora el clima de Mexico, aquí en Suecia hace -5 grados...



Aquí te pondremos algunos comentarios sobre la casa:



La casa es muy bonita y cómoda, con piscina y playa privada. La cocina esta muy bien equipada, los lavabos reformados y la dueña es muy simpática. El pueblo de Chelem, por lo menos en temporada baja, es muy tranquilo, casi solitario, así que es un buen destino si realmente quieres paz y tranquilidad. La playa tiene muchas caracolas y es un poquito descuidada, pero preciosa para dar paseos por la atardecer.



Y en ingles también:



The house is very pretty and comfortable, with private pool and beach. The kitchen is well equipped, the bathrooms reformed and the owner is very sympathetic. The village of Chelem, at least in the low season, is very tranquil, almost solitary, so it is a great place if you really want peace and quite. The beach has lots of seashells and is not very well kept, however absolutely beautiful for long walks in the sunset.

Bueno, gracias de nuevo por la hospitalidad en su casa.



Un abrazo fuerte,



Klara y Luis

so peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything you need and more. Lizette and Gino are amazing and a excellent example of the kindness of the mexican people. They made us feel like family and are so genuine. We enjoyed daily walks on the beach picking up interesting shells. We spend a lot of time just is swinging in the hammock, beside the pool watching the pelicans dive for food 20 meters away. Groceries were not a problem in Chelem and Progresso. We used the BBQ and appreciated the sink outside and the clothes line. All seemingly small things but made it feel like home.

We did not need the air conditioner. Every afternoon a breeze came up and we fell asleep to the sound of waves and palm trees in the wind. A wonderful month long holiday.

2nd Visit

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our second stay at La Tintinki and it was as amazing as the first! Lizette ensured that anything we needed to be comfortable for our vacation was at the house and when we did have to call her with questions about the propane she had someone at the door within 10 minutes to help us. We absolutely love this little beach house and will definitely return again. Thank you Lizette for yet another great family vacation!

Serene, secluded property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and the owners! You MUST have Imelda's cooking and hospitality- all at a fair price. The white beach roads will add to the island feel of Chelem and surroundings. There are a few bars close by if you'd like. We even had Uber service there. The patio with pool and beach is where we entertained and relaxed. We are very happy with our stay. The experience went beyond our expectations. The people, climate and various ruins exploration trips were just the icing on the cake while staying at Tintinki.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Lizette is the greatest! she was standing by the door waiting for us even though we were driving from Cancun and were running late. she was very attentive and a wealth of information on the area. the house is nice, beautiful pool area, could use just a little maintenance because of the salty environment. I gave 4 stars because of security in the area. we were broken into and they stole a couple phones and some cash. we called Lizette and she came out immediately and called the police. there are protectors on the back doors but someone had picked the lock or had a key. petty theft, apparently is common in the area. make sure if you stay in this area, in any house, that you close and lock the sliding glass doors at night, we did not. if you are mindful of your surroundings you will be just fine.

Regresaremos pronto

  • 5 of 5

La Tintinkí es una casa que está situada frente al mar. Tiene todas las comodidades para poder gozar unos días de descanso mientras se admira la naturaleza.

La alberca está situada justo para sentirse como en el mar, tiene luces que crean una atmósfera inigualable para disfrutarla en las noches.

Los anfitriones Gino y Lizette, nos recibieron muy contentos y nos hicieron sentir como en casa....Mejor casa que ésta no hay, definitivamente pronto regresaremos. Marilyn, from USA

La Playa de Chelem or Costa Azul restaurants offer a

comfortable dinner option.

For those interested in taking in the natural beauty of this area, a

trip to Isla Pajaros, or Bird Island, is the perfect way to tour the

mangrove that is home to an abundance of wildlife, includingturtles,

flamingos, ducks and many species of crabs. At the end of this short

tour,don't forget to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Isla Pajaros.

The trip takes approximately and hour and a half and leaves the Port

of Chelem every day of the year.

Progreso is a 15 minute drive. It has a beautiful sea-wall with

restaurants overlooking the 5 mile longest pier in the world.

Mérida is a 30 minute drive. The most beautiful colonial city in

México, it is known as the white city not only for its many white

limestone buildings, but because it´s streets, plazas and parks

are cleaned daily. You will find familiar conveniences at Costco,

Sam´s Club, Wall Mart, Fridays, Subway. You can go shopping at the

mall, go dancing until dawn, and there are VIP movie theater and

museums. You can take a city tour in a horse and buggy and see the

grand colonial architecture which dates back to the 1500´s.

Uaymitun is a 20 minute drive. It is a flamingo sanctuary where you

can watch these magnificent pink birds in their natural habitat. The

flamingo sanctuary wetlands are along the Gulf Coast.It is a unique

shallow water sanctuary where freshwater from cenotes(natural wells)

blend with salt water, creating the perfect feeding grounds for

flamingos.

Celestun is a national wild life refuge and is a 1 1/2 hour drive.

Touring this area on a boat is relaxing and rewarding.

Mayan ruins:

Dzibichaltun is a 25 minute drive. This Mayan site is a national

park and it is 9 miles north of

Merida, along the road to Progreso. Here you will find Mayan ruins,

nature trails, a cenote and the Museum of the Maya People, one of

the most comprehensive museums in Yucatan.

Chichen Itza is a 2 1/2 hour drive. It is considered one of the 7

Wonders of the World. It is the largest Mayan ruin in Yucatán. Not

to be missed.

Valladolid is 25 miles from Chichen Itza. It is a quiet charming

colonial town with a pleasant Main Plaza. Here you will see the

majority of the townspeople still using the typical dress of the

Maya. It features two very important cenotes that are good for

swimming.

Uxmal is 50 miles south from Mérida. It is smaller than Chichen

Itza. Its architecture, some of the most majestic of the Yucatan

ruins, is characterized by low horizontal palaces set around

courtyards, decorated with rich sculptural elements and details.
