Villa Caracol is a luxurious, oceanfront home on the Riviera Maya, the Caribbean coastline of Mexico. Walk into a bright, airy open plan kitchen, living and dining room with views overlooking the ocean. Elegantly finished in marble, mosaic, granite surfaces and hardwoods, Villa Caracol offers you a unique holiday experience, exotic and romantic whilst retaining modern amenities and comfort.

Each of the four grand bedrooms has its own sea-view balcony and marble clad ensuite bathroom. You have your own pool and the shared use of a second pool, your own elevated beach and a private roof terrace with Jacuzzi.

Villa Caracol offers tranquillity away from the usual busy beach holiday centres but close to the cosmopolitan, vibrant hubs of Cancun and Playa del Carmen and to the unspoiled fishing village of Puerto Morelos. The villa is located on a cul-de-sac beach road with little traffic and few others on the beach.

A welcoming array of basic food provisions will await you. Leo lives nearby and will greet you upon arrival and ensure that your stay is comfortable and problem free. Maid service is provided mid-week for week long stays.

We are Kate and Norbert, a British/Canadian couple who, with our two kids, have recently bought Villa Caracol having fallen in love with the Riviera Maya. Villa Caracol is perfect for us and we hope it is for you too. It is away from the high tempo of typical tourist resorts but within easy access of all amenities. It offers the perfect base for exploration of Mexican and Yucatán culture, the glorious natural features of mangroves, cenotes and beach, and the relaxation of a beach holiday.

The Yucatan Peninsula region

Villa Caracol is just south of Cancun, north of Puerto Morelos on the Riviera Maya, the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Easy access to Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

Playa del Carmen – Located just 25 minutes south of Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen is definitely worth visiting. Its main street, 5th Avenue, is teeming with shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Playa is also home to beautiful beaches and the ferry to reach Cozumel. At least plan on spending one afternoon enjoying the town and having dinner at one of its great restaurants.

Villa Caracol is located within easy distance of Cancun airport, a 20 – 30 minute drive. It is in striking distance of busy Cancun for shopping, cinema and other city activities.

Puerto Morelos

The nearest village is Puerto Morelos, a charming fishing village which has been escaped the ravages of construction and tourism. Previously the centre for the production of gum for the US chewing gum market cultivated from the chicle, Puerto Morelos has the second largest coral reef. The original lighthouse leans askew since Hurricane Beulah in 1966.

There are numerous restaurants, bars and stores. The fishing boats are moored along the seafront and local fishermen bring their catch to the pier. Have a massage on the beach or make an appointment for the masseuse to come to your holiday home. There is a variety of shops in and around the town square.

At Puerto Morelas you will find idyllic snorkelling, diving and fishing.

Croco-Cun Zoo – At the touring from Highway 307 to Villa Caracol is the Croco-Cun Zoo with a collection of crocodiles and other indigenous animals . Offers immensely informative tours (available in English) and opportunities to hold baby crocs and feed the deer.

From the highway to the coast, you will travel though peaceful mangroves full of herons and white ibises. At the coast, watch the pelicans flying overhead and diving for fish.

From Villa Caracol, explore further afield.

Visit the cenotes, limestone sinkholes, some developed for visitors and other still hidden and unused. Swim, snorkel and scuba dive in them either as part of a tour or independently. Many of the cenotes have been developed with zip wires, All Terrain Vehicles and jumping boards. There is a charge for these.

The great Mayan Ruins of Tulum and Chichén Itzá, one of the new seven wonders of the world are a day trip from Villa Caracol.

Xcaret – Once a sacred Mayan city and port, Xcaret (pronounced ish-car-et) is now a 250 acre ecological theme park on a gorgeous stretch of coastline. Tastefully designed and executed and efficiently administered, it's well worth a visit without and especially with children.
