Property Details

Updated: Dec 2, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps


The Palapa at Nah Balam is located 12 kilometres inside the Biosphere of Sian Ka'an, one of the worlds most sought after eco destinations in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, and far away from the large all inclusive hotels, lights and city noise of Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. Peace, quiet and exclusitivity are the words that describe this area of the Riviera. To the front of the property lies the most pristine perfect beach you can imagine! White powdery sand stretches for as far as the eye can see. Turquoise blue water is as warm as bath water year round. The beach is extremely private allowing wildlife to live in its natural state. it is possible to see turtles at night lay their eggs in deep holes in the sand. Pelicans, eagles, cranes and all manner of beautifully coloured birds soar over head. Watch tiny crabs as they scurry across the warm sand and dig deep holes for safety.

To the rear of the property stretches miles and miles of fresh water lagunes teeming with fish, manatees, and all types of flora and fauna. There is a canal here to float down while you become enchanted with the abundance of wild orchids and mangrove forests. At the end ? A mayan ruin to explore!

Truly one location with two different worlds!

The house is fully furnished for 4 and has a fully equipped kitchen. Stay in and prepare a gourmet meal with your freshly caught fish or head to Tulum for international cuisine over looking the beautiful Caribbean ocean.

There is no end of things to do at the Palapa. The sun is hot, the water is warm and the beach is always inviting!

* Suntan, swim, exercise at sunrise or sunset, drink margaritas on the beach, bar-b-que, fish at waters edge.

* read a book while swinging in the shade on the hammock.

* The bridge at Boca Pailla is a beautiful walk away and here the sea meets the estuary of the laguna. Fish are teeming in this area and fishermen come from around the world to fly fish.

* Snorkelling in this area is also world class. The largest coral reef in the northern hemisphere runs in front of the property and is easily accessable.

* Explore the calm waters of the laguna for the day on the Kayaks.

* Go a little further to learn about the Sian Ka'an reserve at the Eco centre.

* The wonderful restaurants and shops of Tulum beach road are 15 minutes away. Here you can eat international cuisine while listening to live music or take a Salsa lesson from the pros! The little shops are unique and fun to browse.

* To the south of the palapa is the little town of Punta Allen. Take a trip there for diving and finish the day with a 'just out of the ocean' lobster dinner.
