                                                      We have just returned home from 3 weeks in Mexico and spent three nights at Villa Xaman-ha. The accomodation was great and having the wild beach on our doorstep was fantastic. Don;t expect luxury but the lovely house is full of charm and the manager and his wife extremely helpful; they made us very welcome.
