I doubt the Finca Ixobel is known as a nudist spot but it was very slow and quiet while I was there. That being said, I took advantage of the lack of fellow patrons and enjoyed the treehouse in the nude and also swam in the private lake nude both days I was there. The food is pretty good and...

It was to my attention the confusion about ecological and dirty bathrooms, kitchen full of flies, horses with enough ticks to end up with 2 to 4 each rider in a 1 hour ride, with being ecological and clean. I do not recommend a place with semi-open bathrooms that are not frequently clean and only one sink for both bathrooms....

Finca Ixobel is a great place to relax or go on excursions (both on or off property). We went horseback riding, climbing through caves and hiking. Food in the restaurant was really good and the staff is very friendly. Just a short Tuk Tuk ride to the town of Poptun. Will go back again.

Eco-friendly farm with everything you need - a restaurant which serves reasonably priced food all day, they call for tuk tuks should you need to go into Poptún, activities such as horse riding, hikes and cave tubing amongst other things. We stayed in a tree house in the second field down from the restaurant, near the well. Pros: it had...

We camped here for a couple of nights and had a lovely time. The grounds are great and the restaurant serves great, tasty food. It was surprisingly expensive to camp (75 pp) but the facilities were good. It's well located halfway down the east highway from Flores.

We stayed there 3 nights to rest in the middle of a long journey. This is a really calm and peacefull place, surrounded by nature, perfect if you need to rest. We liked the place but I only rate a 3/5. First we had a room with foam mattress, really not comfortable. I prefered to sleep in a hammock. This...
