Las Tunas is a comfortable home owned by the creators of the leading tourist guide to the state
of Yucatan 'Yucatan Today.' Check the website.
IMPORTANT INFO: To clear up a lot of confusion about safety issues in Mexico, let me say that the problems are along the northern border of Mexico...some 1200 miles away. Yucatan is known for being a safe, tranquil, peaceful area andTelchac Puerto a quiet, remote fishing village. This is like being in Kansas if there were problems in Los Angeles.... far away. So.... take advantage and come to Yucatan!
Las Tunas home in nestled in amongst some 300 coconut trees and sits on a large, spacious beach front property on the Gulf of Mexico. We sit apart from other homes - we have no wall-to-wall neighbors. Set off the beach you will have a wonderful view of the pool, dune and Gulf of Mexico. This is not a stark rental property, this is our home with sofas, chairs and beds that are comfortable!!
Telchac Puerto is known for being small, slow and quiet where you
will find the locals very friendly. Being such a small village, you
will feel at home quickly, get to know the shop keepers and them you.
The beaches are wide, sandy and great for walking. They are not
crowded with fishing boats, other tourists, break water sticks
every twenty feet and wall-to-wall houses like in Chicxulub and
Progreso. Telchac Puerto is for people looking for a place that is
more private and uncrowded.
Swimming is good all yearlong. The water is safe, clean Gulf water
with no rocks, currents or ebb tides. It is very swimmer friendly.
We have ceiling fans throughout our home and AC in the bedrooms, for an additional cost.
There is an international airport in Merida, with direct flights
from Houston, Miami and Mexico City. It can be cheaper to fly into
Cancun, rent a car there and drive over - about four hours.
Having a car will make your stay much more enjoyable.
Miles of wide beaches, an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico,
varied seashells, the sounds of the birds, (flamingos, pelicans,
ducks, osprey, eagles, kingfisher, etc.), the peace, tranquility and
quietness that reign, and the fact that the house is near enough to
other attractions (Mayan ruins, colonial cities) but far enough way
to feel remote.
No razzle dazzle, no discos, no neon signs, no traffic, no wild
night life, no fine dining, no shopping malls or plazas, no hoards
of tourists. Las Tunas is for people who are looking to get away
from it all and have a “Mexican experience.” This is not a tourist
trap destination. If you do want all the razzle-dazzle above, check
out Cancun, Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya.
How you'd spend your free time:
Reading, sun bathing, strolling on the beach, bird watching,
collecting shells, relaxing in the pool, taking siestas in a
hammock, going to the local harbor to buy fresh fish, going to the
village market for produce, trying Yucatecan food that is sold
cheaply, practicing your Spanish with the caretaker, visiting the
nearby Mayan pyramids of X-Cambo (10 mins. from the house) or
Chichen Itza (1.5 hrs.), Dzibichaltun (45 mins), Uxmal (1.5
hour), the colonial city of Merida (1 hour), playing golf (45
minutes), driving the back sandy roads of the village investigating,
driving to the other nearby fishing villages, RELAXING.
There is an international airport in Merida with direct flights from
Houston, Miami and Mexico City. The Merida airport is one hour from
The village has a Main Plaza and tiny local market for fruits,
veggies and meat; there are shops for other staples, a bakery,
internet cafes, and several restaurants open for lunch (the main meal
in Mexico.) One of the charms of Las Tunas is that there is a village
just 3.5kms away for shopping and errands.
