Apenas relaxe na sua varanda, ou no final da doca. Você vai ser capaz de ver o seu barco vindo.
We spent the last week in October 2016 at this beautiful house. We flew into Cancun, rented a car and spent our first night in Puerto Morales. The next day we drove to Tulum, exchanged our money and stocked up on groceries then drove to the Reef House. We had good, paved roads all the way to Xcalak and felt completely safe. Reef house is a short drive from Xcalak on a well maintained dirt road. Total driving time from Cancun to the Reef House took us about 5 1/2 hours, but it is a beautiful drive with lots to see.
The house is great and exactly as described. Spacious, clean, comfortable with beautiful views right on the water. You need to bring groceries, tin foil, paper towels, etc., but the kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes and cooking utensils. We did not use it, but i believe there is a BBQ on property. Bring charcoal. A very nice housekeeper cleans the house each morning. This house is solar powered so leave your blow dryer and curling iron at home. There is no air conditioning in the house, but we did not need it. Between the ocean breezes and ceiling fans we were fine and we never had an issue with power. The house does have good internet service.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are well equipped with linens, soap and TP. the house comfortably sleeps six, more if someone wants to sleep on the couch in the living room.
There are kayaks and paddle boards available for guests to use. We brought our own snorkel gear and used the kayaks to reach the reef, which is close. We loved it! Saw stingrays, eels and numerous colorful fish.
The best part of the house is that it comes with Ben and Esther who went over and above to make our stay wonderful. Ben helped arrange fishing trips, knew all the restaurants and where to snorkel. He checked on us regularly and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
We loved our time at Reef House. Thanks Ben and Esther.
We spent a week and a half at the Reef House (Winter 2016) and just loved it! Well appointed, fabulous views, right on the beach, solar powered, super clean. On the latter topic: house cleaned daily by friendly staff, beach front cleaned every morning -- even though we rose for sunrise most days, I don't recall ever beating the Reef House crew being out front and at work!
The new owners, Ben and Ester, are super nice and worked hard to help us with anything we needed: something for the house, use of bikes or kayaks (both available on a share basis if you're staying there), and restaurant recommendations. On the latter, Ben and Ester made many suggestions and really cared that we had a good experience -- when we came back Ben would check in to see how it went so he could give the next people staying with him the latest skinny. A simple thing, surely, but indicative of how Ben as Ester look after those who stay with them. They also had local lobster and shrimp on hand and allowed us to use the grill -- what a couple of dinners we were able to make (yum!), along with cooking multiple species of fish we caught.
We spent most of our time fishing, kayaking, exploring up the coast. We snorkeled, although not at the highlight area out at nearby reef. We paddled out to the reef twice -- its easy, perfect distance -- but it was windy and choppy enough both times we decided to just enjoy the paddle, instead. Friends report amazing snorkeling at the reef. We went many times, just closer in to shore (still great, just not as much coral and associated life).
Our only caution is just to be open minded and recall that the Xcalak area is far off the beaten path (5-6 hour drive from Cancun) -- and doggone it we assume that's why most people will want to come here! Town has several small grocery stores, but we recommend bringing a big supply from a bigger town and filling in with what's available in Xcalak. You won't find t-shirt shops or zip lines or bumper cars or para-sailing or Senior Frogs etc in Xcalak. If that's your gig, have a ball but probably don't come to the Reef House. But if you like doing & discovering things on your own--though Ben is happy to help you get fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving guides--we couldn't recommend Ben and Ester's place more highly.
I stayed five nights at the Reef House with my husband and two children, ages 9 and 11. The property itself was exactly as described on VBRO, and the quantity and quality of amenities (pots & pans, dishes, towels, etc.) exceeded our expectations.
We flew into Chetumal Airport from Mexico City, rented a Dodge Durango truck from National rent-a-car and bought a week's worth of groceries and supplies at the Wal-Mart on Insurgentes Avenue in Chetumal before driving out to the property. We stocked up on paper towels, toilet paper, batteries, etc. just in case, but none of these items turned out to be necessary as the house was fully stocked when we arrived.
Our goal was to get as far away from the beaten track as possible, and we succeeded. Looking over the photos from our trip, it appears that we spent a week in a ghost town. The town of Xcalak seems smaller than even the population statistics would suggest. The only commodities that can be reliably obtained from local stores seems to be ice cold beer, soft drinks, bread, snacks and various canned and dry goods. Beyond that, there are two grocery trucks that make the trek up the coast each week. Still, we never found ourselves at any risk of inconvenience.
There was an incredibly strong sea breeze during most of our stay, so we never encountered a single mosquito of no see um bug during our entire vacation. The flip side of the coin is that fishing, snorkeling and dive charters were totally unavailable during most of our stay. In fact, Majahual and Xcalak ports were actually closed by the harbor masters making it impossible for cruise ships to make their scheduled port calls. This made it fun to walk around Majauhual and let the kids play on the beach since there were literally no tourists in a town apparently built entirely to accommodate thousands of Disney Cruise ship passengers.
Our drive down the old costal road connecting Majahual to Xcalak was one of the highlights of our vacation, made possible by the fact that National Rental Car provided us with a Dodge Durango 5.8L Hemi truck with a 6" lift for the price of a minivan... thank you very much...
We found the caretakers, Bob & Caroline, to be friendly, knowledgeable and obliging and recommend that guests make all arrangements with them well in advance of their arrival.
Yet, this is not a destination for everyone. Xcalak prefers retired guests with no children. We did not have any problem with this, but others might.
Informações adicionais: porto do sul de entrada no México no Caribe.
Xcalak não tem apenas mergulho e pesca com mosca, tem aula de mergulho mundo e pesca com mosca. Ambos os barcos de pesca e de mergulho vai buscá-lo aqui (para viagens de snorkel, também!). Se você ainda não tem o seu guia de pesca favorito em Xcalak, teremos o maior prazer de reservar um guia para você.
