Overview

Photos and Description of the El Cuyo vacation house rental

Two Bedroom Beach House That Can Accommodate Up To Six People.

Saludos from Ría Luz, my home in Playa Kuká, a beach located in the Biosphere's Reserve of Río Lagartos, Mexico. I am Ana María Hernando, a Boulder, Colorado based artist and this is my new house and studio on the Yucatán Peninsula.

Ría Luz is perfect for families looking for a unique place to explore, couples desiring a secluded getaway, or anyone wanting to simply relax in a home away from home. Playa Kuká is the most environmentally respectful coastal development in the Yucatán. The house can accommodate up to 6 people and was built to be the least impactive on the surrounding environment. It is completely solar and wind powered.

My home is comprised of two buildings. In the main structure is the living room with a fully equipped kitchen and a master suite with a king bed. In this house, the living room has two sofas that can be converted into two beds. There is a laundry area with a washer and dryer. Outside, a bridge connects the deck of this building with the adjacent one. This other structure has a suite with a king bed that can be transformed into two twin beds, and an outside shower with its own deck. All decks have beach access. Back above the main building is a lounging terrace with an outdoor bed and a bar. From everywhere in the house, there are spectacular views of the sea. The house is ecologically friendly, completely powered, but best for people who want to unplug from their busy lives. There are nature tours given by local experts from Río Lagartos that we strongly recommend. Every summer, hundreds of turtles come to nest in Playa Kuká. The nearby town also offers local food, fresh fish, and guided fishing or bird watching expeditions.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Car: recommended

At Playa Kuka, the sea is gentle with low riptide. Along the beach you can swim and walk miles of beautiful white sand. There are also opportunities for wind surfing, sailing, guided bird watching tours and fishing expeditions. You can kayak and paddle board through the jungle estuary and, to finish up the day, watch the stunning sunsets from the rooftop terrace.

The nearby town, Río Lagartos, is a small fishing village of 3,000 inhabitants on the north coast of the Yucatán Peninsula. Located within the state with the lowest crime rate in Mexico, Río Lagartos is known for its tranquility and safety. It is a quiet haven resting at the heart of a natural habitat, beating with the sounds of roaming wildlife. It is a bird watcher's paradise -- notably the thousands of flamingos that flock there every year to nest. Río Lagartos is located within El Parque Natural Río Lagartos, a nature preserve with guided tours. Nearby is also the Coloradas salt mine -- a local attraction which is the largest producer of sea salt in Mexico. Río Lagartos also offers local food, fresh fish, and guided fishing or bird watching expeditions. At Playa Kuka, the sea is gentle with low riptide.
