Casita In the Jungle


My husband and I spent three days staying in this magical casita in the jungles of Mexico. Casa Uh May is located in a very small Mayan village called Francisco Uh May, about 25 mins from Tulum.

Walking into this jungle abode you will feel a deep sense of relaxation surrounded by so much green and the many sounds of tropical birds. Spend your day lounging around the pool watching all the colorful birds coming and going and the most beautiful butterflies float by.  You will get carried away to dream land by your own personal orchestra providing rhythmic soothing beats with all the calming sounds of the jungle creatures. Falling asleep my husband and I would count all the unique sounds we heard coming from the many crickets and the other jungle fauna, and before you know it you have drifted away. Casa Uh May is a perfect place to reconnect with nature and yourself. I left feeling so refreshed and revitalized.

The casita is a tastefully designed and has its own Nespresso coffee machine and a bar fridge. It does not include a kitchen. Breakfast is included and served in the guest house between 7.30 and 10 am. The amazing host Serge lives in the main house approximately 30 meters from the casita. There is plenty of distance between the two houses and lots of privacy provided by all the greenery. Serge was a fantastic host! We had such a pleasure getting to know him and the breakfast he makes is just delicious. Try his homemade german bread and almond butter, just lovely!


Please note if you’re afraid of spiders and bugs this might not be the place for you as you will run into a number of our crawling friends. Also there isn’t any air conditioning, but the ceiling fan was enough to cool down the room at night to sleep.

We had such a fabulous time at Casa Uh May. It was situated perfectly for us to venture out into Tulum and to other directions like Valladolid and Coba. There is lots of exploring to be done in this area and Casa Uh May provided the perfect central spot.
