For a town its size Mahahual has a pretty large variety of places to stay for travelers. And with the explosion of vacation travel accommodation aps like airbnb, homeaway, and booking there has been a subsequent wave of locals looking to cash in on the latest trend by converting a room in their home into a room for rent. This is a good thing because it allows some of the would-be have-not’s to cash in on the local business boom but it can be risky for travelers who end up spending their vacation in a less-than-ideal situation that looked good in pictures.
But and few quality small places have cropped up out of the fertile field and established themselves as cozy little nooks with the friendly familiar vibe that comes with inns and B&Bs. One of them is Casa Sueno Caribeno.
Casa Sueno Caribeno (which translates to Casa Caribbean Dream, for all you gringos out there) is a small bed and breakfast with a rustic touch of the Caribbean and Mexico all rolled into one. From the moment you pass through the front gate and are greeted by the palm tree, bermuda grass, bougainvillas and coral touches, you really feel the vacation mode descend over you like a comfortable blanket.
The rooms are stylishly decorated with vibrant Caribbean colors and unique details that are specific to the theme of each room. The Coralina Room, The Palmera Room, and the Caracol Suite are filled with thoughtful touches of coral, palm trees, and conch shells that whisk you stress away as soon as you cross the threshold.
The garden is a great place to relax and enjoy your complimentary breakfast, read a book, and just sit quiet and listen to the breeze and tropical birds as they sing to each other in the tree canopy.
But if you are feeling adventurous you can hop on one of the complimentary bikes and go explore the town and the beaches. And why wouldn’t you? They also have complimentary snorkel gear for you to use for the day.
To really help you melt into your vacation there is also a spa with a wonderful variety of treatments. I have previously written about it on the blog and you can read the article here. All guests receive a 25% discount on spa services as an additional benefit!
The owners also have a great vision for the future and will be adding a rooftop soaking pool with an area for exercise and scheduling private yoga classes this year. They are a young couple from Colombia and the USA who have worked in the wellness and natural health industry for years and are working to make Casa Sueno Caribeno a true wellness retreat.
So if you are planning a vacation to the Costa Maya and are looking for a place to stay with a real “just visiting friends” vibe where you can really relax and restore yourself, Casa Sueno Caribeno is waiting for you. See you soon!
