Welcome to paradise!
Casita Paraiso translates to “little paradise house” and is a dream of ours in a magical land that we’d like to share with you. Explore the Maya civilization, full of ancient and archaeological wonders. You’ll find amazing and abundant treasures of the sea and jungle surrounding you. Casita Paraiso is a two bedroom bungalow, traditional in style and fully equipped making the perfect home base during your travels throughout the Yucatan Peninsula and beyond. Once you leave this land, a piece of your heart is forever left behind!
We are located in Chemuyil, 90 minutes south of Cancun in the state of Quintana Roo which borders Belize and Guatemala to the south. This lovely community is gently tucked between sprawling, dense jungle scattered with cenotes and hugged by the Caribbean Sea. We are a mixture of homeowners who live here part-time, full-time or once in a while (practicing for retirement) from all over the United States, Canada and a few other far reaches of the globe. You’ll find other visitors from all over the world who come for a stay in Chan Chemuyil while on the Riviera Maya.
Enjoy amazing adventures from diving and snorkeling the Caribbean, underground rivers, caverns and caves to kayaking, fishing and swimming with turtles and whale sharks to visiting Mayan villages and ruins.
Casita Paraiso is just minutes to the very special playa, Xcacel. Picturesque and serene, this environmentally protected beach provides an important sanctuary for turtle nesting. The green and loggerhead turtles return each year to nest from May through September. Xcacel was voted one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico and is located just across the highway.Take a walk along this lovely crescent beach….watch birds, build sand castles and visit a cenote. At the end of your active day you can take in an authentic meal in the neighboring pueblo of Chemuyil. This is a warm, delightful Mayan community where you can immerse yourself into the vibrant culture.
The brilliant, turquoise water of the Caribbean is thriving with sealife and provides excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. The Meso American Reef or Great Mayan Reef is the largest coral reef formation in the western hemisphere and the second largest in the world making this a world class scuber diver’s mecca. You can enjoy some of the world’s best bone, permit and tarpon fishing in Quintana Roo.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
