We stayed at Cavelands for two nights while visiting the Tulum area. It was a little hard to find, but when we did, we were surprised of the setting which had an off the beaten tract feeling, yet so close to all the main attractions. Our three person cabana fit our needs perfectly. There really is a cave to explore...

Wake up to the sounds of the Mexican jungle, grab a towel and amble across an ancient Mayan road to a nearby cenote (fresh water spring) clearer than any swimming pool for a swim. A short 15 minute walk further down the road and you are at the most beautiful beach in the world with water so clear that you...

Great place off the beaten path outside of the small friendly Mayan village Chemuyil. We rented a car from the airport and zipped on down there. Cabana and surrounding jungle property were beautiful and relaxing. Slept in an Indonesian princess bed in the big cabana!

Don Renzo (The owner) is an awesome funny guy and he will make you feel really at home. He goes out of his way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. This really is a great place to stay away from the busy areas nearby. The campfire is not to be missed.

Cavelands is a beautiful and tranquil spot in the jungle on the Caribbean coast. We stayed with some friends in the Tipi which was really great (it sleeps 4). Don Renzo is a perfect host, very welcoming and eager to help in any way he can. The whole site is incredibly well cared for, and there are so many personal...
