3rd time in El Cuyo and loving it!!!



We had a wonderful Family reunion in El Cuyo at Hacienda del Cuyo...for the 3rd time already.
Year after year, the owner adds something to the property to make it even more cosy and quaint.
We flew into Cancun, rented a car, did some grocery shopping in Walmart and drove the 2,5 hrs to El Cuyo.
The caretaker Magally was greeting us upon arrival and shortly after that we enjoyed our first Margarita on the beachfront terrace.
This year we noticed that the home got a fresh paint job inside, the staircase outside was remodeled in mexican Talavera Style, all 3 beach terraces got new tiles in colonial Hacienda look and the bathrooms had also nice Talavera Ornaments since we last visited in 2013.
Its obvious that the owners take good care of the Place and you notice the love to detail everywhere.


We swam in the ocean, collected seashells, saw dolphins, did the Whaleshark tour over in Holbox, rode around in Golfcarts, checked out the newly built Fishing pier with pedestrian area...wow, you can buy fresh fish from local fishermen there, very inexpensive.
Also we did a day trip to the Chichen Itza and Ek balam ruins, and the colonial town of Valladolid with its famous Tequila factory. We felt again very safe, and the locals are so friendly and helpful, and cant do enough for you.
The caretakers prepared us delicious lobster meals,( i will add some fotos)..and we only went a few times into the small restaurants of El Cuyo that had local mexican flavor.

We loved it again what can we say. And in comparison to Cancun or the Mayan Riviera,..very refreshing and off the beaten track, we will be back!

“relaxing from the first second on!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My family joined in while we travel the Americas and we chose to take a break at the Hacienda el Cuyo in el Cuyo. The contact with the owner was super friendly and he always replied within a few hours. The house is beautifully kept and is well worth the money. To sit on the terrace and just look at what is around you makes you think you are in paradise. We had bought groceries on our way up and never had to leave the house for the whole week. Fish and seafood could be bought from the housekeeper. Also anything else one could need would be availabel through him. We were so happy during our stay, going in and out of the water, relaxing,peacefully laying in the hammock or in the beach chairs. It is worth to pay the extra money to be in the beach front property! it is true that it is secluded, but we knew about that and WANTED it that way. The only negative point is, that upon arrival we could not show a printed version of the confirmation, so we weren't given some of the things that are -from our reading in their information booklet- included. But since we are long term travellers, we had everything with us in our car. If one should really need an internet connection while there, check with the owner that the stick is available, when we were there, someone had rented it.
The property, the staff, the location, the fresh seafood, the weather, the beach, i can't recommend it highly enough, it's heaven!

Hola Ursula,

we are happy that you too enjoyed our Beachhome,...yes, a printed version is needed when you arrive. We did send it to your sister, which did rent the home from us,...but since she is a busy world traveller and just forgot about it.
thanks for recommending us,...and come back again!

“Swimming with the Dolphins in El Cuyo”
Reviewed 21 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

"Swimming with Dolphins in El Cuyo"

We just got back from a family weekend in El Cuyo. We were there several years ago, and we rented the same house, which has been upgraded and now has 3 levels. The directions Mattias (the German Owner ) gave us were perfect!

It is our daughters 18th birthday, we asked her what she wanted to do, and she said, " let's go to El Cuyo"!

The beach was amazing,..the sunrise looked like a huge orange ball in the sky. The water was perfect for swimming, and we were lucky enough to see dolphins while we were swimming.
We had the beach to ourselves. Lots of seashells if you like to beachcomb.

The Caretaker Magally and her husband were very attentive and even cooked fresh fish for us one day.

The house was very comfortable, we were 7 in total and could have invited more. The kitchens on both floors were fine for our needs, and there is even a nice fire pitt on the beach for a bon fire, we did that too.

There is plenty of private terrace space, with great breezes from the sea., we even rented a golf cart one of the days, but most important we spent quality family time.

On our way home we enjoyed seeing the flamingos, and driving through the local villages.
l Cuyo, we will be back for sure; Thanks Mattias and Family for renting us your Vacation Home
