vacation rental description

                         ONE LOCATION...TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS!

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!
