Decided to make the 3-hour drive from Playa Carmen because my Mexican friend’s highly recommended me to go. Wow, this place was beautiful, there are long dirt and bumpy road through the jungle, and at moments we felt we were going nowhere, but all of a sudden came to the entrance of the resort. Truly amazing place, we were happily greeted by the hotel staff. We had a bungalow right in front of the lake.
The place is tranquil and serene. There were only 6 more guests when we got there. Rooms are small but beautiful. A/C is only available during evening hours. There is a lot of mosquitoes around this time of year, bring OFF!
Lake is fantastic, different hues of blue colors. It is kinda rocky, no sand, so be careful. There are kayaks that you can use freely.
The restaurant serves authentic Mexican dishes, all are excellent. The service was great too; one of the servers recommended me the akumal fly fishing trip for my family. Takes some time to arrive, but it’s worth the wait.
After dinner we went to the side of the lake to enjoy the moon and stars under this fantastic place, it was truly magical.
I highly recommend this place if you want some peace and quiet and enjoy the sounds of nature. I never saw and heard so many kinds of birds at this place. We loved it. Just wished we could stay longer.
We stopped here to conclude our visit to Chochaban Ruins. After a drive down a narrow road lined by pineapple fields, we came to this secluded haven. We enjoyed local cuisine under the gazebo and enjoyed this beautiful freshwater lake. There was an open bar and kayaks for use, and the swimming area is floored with smooth rocks, not sand. The grounds were beautiful and well cared for. Lunch was delicious, and the service was excellent.
