YUM BOTIC's curved design captures the Caribbean sea breezes for your comfort. Its 11 foot ceilings and transom windows enhance cross ventilation. When neccessary, ceiling fans cool each room. The home has a fully tiled interior. The first floor has a combined living room, dinning room and kitchen. The well-equipped kitchen has built in wood cabinets, granite counter tops, a full refrigerator/freezer and a gas oven. A French press and Melita filters are there for your morning brew. A variety of kitchen tools, condiments and herbal teas are available. The handmade wood dinning table seats six. Large screened glass doors provide breath-taking views and access to the covered tiled patio and the beach beyond. Enjoy swaying in a large Yucatan hammock, relaxing on a chaise lounge or swimming in the warm sea. A large, natural material sun umbrella or palapa keeps you in the shade and on the beach. Two outdoor showers let you shed the salt water before returning indoors. The roomy first floor bedroom with full bath and marble sink has its own screened door out to the patio. A hard wood staircase brings you to the spacious master bedroom with its three sliding screened doors that open out to the expansive terrace. Its full bath has a double-headed shower. The other ample size second floor bedroom has a full bath and its own access to the terrace. Enjoy breakfast outside in the garden patio and brunch lunch and/or dinner on the large glass table on the sea view terrace. Take your computer out there and connect up with the internet and enjoy conversation with friends and family at home. There is a full time on-site caretaker who lives in a separate small house away from the main house. He takes care of the grounds and will help you with what you need. If you wish extra cleaning, clothes washed, or fresh fish you may make arrangements directly with him. Yum Botic Villa is a 30 minute drive from Mahahual where you will find grocery stores, diving and snorkeling shops, great restaurants, crafts shops and a Malecon walkway along the beach. There is also a restaurant about 15 minutes away. We are far away from tourists and cruise ships. A van passes by Yum Botic Villa 2 times a week from which you may purchase vegetables, fruits, eggs, tortillas, poultry and request other foods for the next time the van passes by. In the nearby area, there are Mayan archeological sites to explore, Bacalar's famed lake of many colors, an old Spanish fort and a zip-line to visit in Bacalar, snorkeling and scuba diving to experience including at world famous Chinchorro Reef, a Mayan Museum and typical Mexican market in Chetumal, the capital of Quintana Roo, to see and much more.

About the neighbourhood
Yum Botic Villa is located in a secluded area of the Southern Mexican Caribbean where we are surrounded by coconut palm trees. There are few neighbors so one feels as if one has the earth and the sea to oneself. Mahahual is a 30 minute drive so you can head there to get groceries and explore various restaurants. There is a truck that passes by the villa a few times a week from which you can buy vegetables, fruit, tortillas etc.
Getting around
I am available to make suggestions about what sites and services are available in town or in other near towns and cities.
