Conveniently located off Mexico 307 on the entrance road to the Dos Ojos Cenote system just north of Tulum. By car, we are a one-hour drive from the Cancun airport and 10 minutes from Tulum.
We have 4 private rooms. All rooms have a private bath with hot water showers. The room is furnished with a Queen and an individual bed. All rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan, 110V US standard outlets, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the lodge.
Our shaded, breezy location affords us more comfortable temperatures than you will find in town. We like to “keep green”, and take advantage of the natural cooling elements rather than rely on air conditioning. We live in a delicate balance with our environment, and have a responsibility to protect and preserve our resources. We try to minimize harmful contaminants released into the water, and are pleased to use Sancen cleaning products – biodegradable, environmentally sensitive products that really work!
Traditional, locally made hammocks are provided for your enjoyment, either in the privacy of your room or on the roof deck; rooms are decorated with photos and items from the owners’ travels.
A continental breakfast featuring organic, locally roasted coffee, fresh fruit and granola, and home-baked muffins is served on the first floor each morning. In season, enjoy fresh bananas and papayas from our trees!
Purified drinking water is available in the breakfast area. A guest kitchen is available for your use; the kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, sink, stove, and microwave, and is stocked with utensils. There is also a grill area for our guests to enjoy.
Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the tropical forest, engage in some bird watching, or relax with a book under the palapa on our third floor roof deck.

Maxwell, the resident canine, is an active Australian Shepherd who adores walks on the beach and exploring the jungle.
They have long been fascinated with the Mexican culture, local cuisine and geography, so were eager to take advantage of an opportunity to live and work in the Riviera Maya. They left the corporate world behind, packed up their trusty VW camper and embarked on a new adventure in Mexico.
Your hosts would love to extend their hospitality to you!
We are pet friendly and welcome your well behaved, supervised pet for no additional cost with advance notice.
Our rooms are non-smoking but you may smoke on the grounds or third floor terrace if it does not bother other guests.
Events or parties are fine with pre-approval.
