Chelem, Yucatan Peninsula
Our casita (little room) #1 is the perfect beach budget rental for couples or solo travelers. Located poolside in a quiet courtyard, the casita is one room, spacious enough for a king-size bed with side table, dresser, mini-fridge, table for two, and a separate sink/mirror area. There is a private bathroom with walk-in shower, toilet and plenty of hot water. A ceiling fan and sliding screened window add additional comfort and keep the room well ventilated. We do offer air-conditioning in summer months for an optional, nightly charge and ask that it be conserved and used for sleeping (electric is expensive). We happily welcome guests to stay a few days, a week, or a few months!

About the neighbourhood
Chelem is a quaint and sleepy beach town located less than an hour north of Merida, the capital of the state of Yucatan, and about 5 miles east of the port town of Progreso, a major stopping point for Caribbean cruises. A popular vacation spot for Yucatan peninsula residents, especially Meridians, stucco beach houses ranging from basic to luxurious line the Gulf shore around Chelem for miles. The town has become in recent years a popular spot for expats primarily from the U.S. and Canada, many looking to retire in the relative safety and warmth of Chelem. There are several expat-owned restaurants in the Chelem and the nearby towns, which have become gathering spots – especially over the weekends- for the Gringo community. There are also plenty of locally-owned eating spots, ranging from... more
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Merida, Yucatan: 48.0 km
Travel straight north out of Merida and you will find yourself on a modern, multilane highway, travelling straight to the beach. Look for the Chelem/Churburna/Yucalpetan exit after about 20 minutes. This will take you past mangroves and flocks of birds and across scenic bridges until you get to a glorietta, or roundabout. Go towards the left, west, past beach front houses till you arrive into town. Continue on the main, paved road, past the town square till you get to a sand road. Turn right and we are on the right hand side. Find the double entry gate and ring the bell just inside on the left hand wall. See you soon!
