Wonderful, relaxing place. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5
Celestun is a relaxed little town that welcomes tourists. The "flamingo" tours are practically mandatory and we took a tour to view the thousands of birds in the "ria" close to town. There are many restaurants along the beach with delicious fish and seafood.

The house is clean and a few kilometers outside of town. The newly remodeled bathroom was beautiful! The location is quiet, with beautiful sunsets and amazing star gazing. We enjoyed listening to the gentle waves, the birds in the morning, taking the sea kayaks out, and riding the bicycles thru town. Most of all we enjoyed doing nothing. The covered patio facing the beach is a dream come true. The sea breeze every day kept the house cool every day even when the temperatures reached 95 degrees. If I were a writer this would be a perfect location!

The property manager is now a local business man with very good English and Spanish. The owner is improving the property on a regular basis. We will be back!

The Best Holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for 3 weeks in December, It was the best working holiday we have had in years. So good we decided to build our own house in Celestun. We will return to Villa Mariposa as soon as we can and until our own house is ready.
Villa Mariposa is well appointed with everything you need for cooking, it is well cared for, super clean and a comfortable home whose pictures do not do it justice. It would easily accommodate 4 people (or more in hammocks!). The caretaker was friendly and very helpful. The town,a 30 minute walk from the house, has everything needed for everyday shopping and the beach restaurants are clean, there isn't much menu variety but the fish and shrimp and calamari are fresh so what else do you need? Everywhere the service is friendly. The people of Celestun really seem to welcome the tourists rather than barely putting up with them. The beach is drop dead gorgeous.
Celestun is a quiet town so if you're looking for beach games in the day time and wild nights on the town this is not the place for you.

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent a fantastic week in this comfortable little villa with a beautiful ocean view. We flew into Cancun and drove our little rental across the pennisula with no trouble at all. The house itself is clean, spacious, and very well decorated. The nearby town of Celestun is beautiful, and we were welcome at every restaurant and store we entered, even though neither of us speak any Spanish. We spent most of our week relaxing in the comfortable hammock in the house, walking up and down the beach, and took a few day trips to Merida and to some nearby Mayan ruins. The caretaker was very helpful and accessible when we needed them. I highly reccommend this little known spot of heaven to anyone who wants a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of hotels and popular "tourist" destinations. Celestun had plenty to do without having to fight any crowds! It is a beautiful place and I would highly reccomend it to anyone!

Two wonderful weeks!!

  • 5 of 5
I flew into Cancun (Merida is a good option as well) and rented a car for the drive across the peninsula visiting the Mayan ruins and cenotes along the way. $10/Day unlimited mileage, great deal! The Villa Mariposa and Celestun met my every expectation! The house was clean and modern as advertised 100 feet from the Gulf. Just 2 kilometers from down town I particularly enjoyed the walk along the beach into town. I encountered a large manta ray swimming just a few feet off shore. Walked along side of it for several hundred meters until it decided that was enough. The Celestun beach was white and clean, the water clear and warm, perfect swimming temperature. There were lots of conch shells, many still populated and became my breakfast on several mornings. I found one very large one now a prize on my fireplace mantle in Colorado.
The property manager was friendly with several suggestions on where to go and what to do. There are several good restaurants downtown, but I found La Casa Peon to be a delightful place to eat. It's just one block north of the pier on 12 (the main street). It's a nice change from the restaurants more centrally located.
Celestun and Villa Mariposa were definitely worth the time and a good vacation value; definitely back again next February.

Beautiful Villa Mairposa

  • 5 of 5
My two boys and I had a wonderful vacation over Christmas at Villa Mariposa in Celestun. The beautiful home was warm and welcoming, and the decor often made us smile with each discovery of some whimsicle bit of art. The hammocks in the house were a favorite with my two teenaged sons - they slept in them every night! I thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the well stocked and very organized kitchen. We all looked forward to exercising our Spanish skills during our nightly excursion into quaint Celestun to purchase the fresh fish for that night's dinner. Mariposa is in the perfect location. The ocean is only a few steps away out the back door and we spent many hours walking along the white sand beach collecting shells or playing in the water. This beautiful home is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas to allow for some much need relaxation, but also close enough for us to enjoy shopping in Merida, sightseeing at Uxmal, and on our last day, a snorlking trip to Cancun. We had such a wonderful time... my boys and I hope to return again soon!
