At Casa de los Pelicanos, full daily housekeeping is provided for our guests and you can choose an all-inclusive or do-it-yourself experience. Our hosts, Felipe and Chari will prepare, cook, and serve meals for you, freeing you for a relaxing and stress free vacation in paradise. Imagine waking up in the morning to fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh brewed coffee and enjoying breakfast on our beachside deck. With our all-inclusive option, a delicious breakfast of your choosing will be waiting for you. Spend the day relaxing on the beach with lunch brought to you, or dine on our oceanfront deck with its outdoor living area, or dine on our outdoor terrace, overlooking the beautiful Caribbean. Relax or be adventurous and explore Mayan ruins or the lagoon that borders our property opposite the Caribbean and come back to a deliciously prepared dinner waiting just for you. At Casa de los Pelicanos, you choose the experience you want. If you would like to be independent or be served; it is all up to you!

The villa boasts three spacious, luxurious master bedrooms with king size beds in each and an extra day bed in two of the suites. The two upper level master suites open to their own terraces and have expansive views of the Caribbean and the lagoon, while the beach level bedroom opens onto the beachfront deck and is just steps away from the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. No fighting over rooms at Casa de los Pelicanos; each couple has a magnificent master suite to choose from. There is also a bunkroom with 2 queens & 2 twins.

The softest sand ever experienced awaits you on miles of pristine, secluded beaches. Sea turtles nest on the beach, pelicans fly formation up and down the coast, and the water is crystal clear and warm. This incredibly unique property lies between the beautiful Caribbean on the beach side and the Campechen lagoon on the other and features 100 meters of beachfront property with an additional 1000 meters of privately owned, uninhabited beachfront.

Casa de los Pelicanos is a dive friendly villa boasting the world's second largest barrier reef just offshore from the villa, or explore the Maya Riviera's famous cenotes.

Check out MotMot Diving reviews on their website.

Come and enjoy world class fly fishing in the lagoons of Boca Paila that extend all the way to Punta Allen, over 30 miles of lagoon fishing known for the triple threat; Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish. Casa de los Pelicanos is proud to partner with the Boca Paila Fishing Lodge and we can offer all-inclusive fishing packages for our guests.

Casa de los Pelicanos is also home to world class kiteboarding on the beautiful beaches of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.

Whether it is scuba diving, world class fly fishing, kiteboarding, or just plain relaxing on the beach, Casa de los Pelicanos offers something for everyone.

Bird watching the Sian Ka'an, Cenote diving and snorkeling, sightseeing the Tulum ruins. Just a short distance from the house is a Mayan lighthouse. This lighthouse was used for night fishing hundreds of years ago to exactly pinpoint the location of a cenote in the lagoon where bountiful fish awaited. The Mayans would light a small fire in the lighthouse and when lined up directly in the line of sight of the fire, they would be directly over the cenote. It's paradise! Need we say more?

About Alan Lambert

A dream come true. A villa in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The picture shows the owner kayaking in the lagoon of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Just a short distance from the house is a Mayan lighthouse that is shown in the picture. This lighthouse was used for night fishing hundreds of years ago to exactly pinpoint the location of a cenote in the lagoon where bountiful fish awaited. The Mayans would light a small fire in the lighthouse and when lined up directly in the line of sight of the fire, they would be directly over the cenote.

Alan Lambert purchased this villa in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fue una sorpresa el encontrarnos en un lugar tan magico, el estar en una de las mejores playas del mundo, completamente solos y aislados fue una experiencia increible. El tener una playa paradisiaca para nosotros solos fue una experiencia que no olvidaremos y hizo de la vacación algo unico, desde las nadadas en el mar, las caminadas en la noche con la luna llena hasta las tortugas que ponen sus huevos. Adicional, el servicio y la forma de cocinar que de Chari y Chucho, complementan la experiencia. Al despedirnos de la casa, estabamos ya planeando el regresar al año siguiente.

This was our third trip to this perfect, secluded piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned to Casa Pelicanos for a week of bliss. This was our third trip to this perfect, secluded piece of paradise. This is truly a “get away from it all” type experience. We had a group of two families with young kids - kids and adults alike had a wonderful time. We spent most days relaxing on the beach, under the palapa and on the porch while the kids played happily on the beach and in the water. The caretakers are lovely - we had them prepare our breakfasts and dinners most days - a huge treat for the parents not to cook all the meals! The villa is well stocked and laid out - clean and fresh and situated right on your own beautiful beach. There are some great adventures to do for day trips (cenotes, fishing, ruins, shopping and eating in Tulum) but we were so relaxed and happy at the villa that we could barely get ourselves to go anywhere else. Can't wait for our next trip to Tulum!

. We visited this paradise with a group of friends earlier this year.

  • 5 of 5

Casa de los Pelicanos is a place like no other. We visited this paradise with a group of friends earlier this year. The property is just south of Tulum, only a couple of miles into the biosphere. While the beaches, restaurants and amenities of Tulum are only a short drive away, Casa de los Pelicanos feels like your own private island and there's little reason to leave. The expansive beach, beautiful and natural landscaping, and uninterrupted views are beyond compare. The house was very nice, clean and well taken care of. Electricity and hot water were never an issue, and wifi was reliable as well. Nearly all of our time, however, was spent on the enormous white sand beach...sunning, swimming, beach games, etc. We ventured to Tulum twice for lunch, but all other meals were prepared by the gracious caretakers, Chucho and Chari.

We arrived quite late our first night, and not only did they bring in our luggage and answer our questions, but they had prepared a wonderful meal for us, as well. Throughout our stay, they were always available to answer questions, run into town or help in any way. Every morning, we awoke to coffee, fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal. In the evening, delicious meals were ready for us when requested. They also accommodated the dietary restrictions of a few people in our group. If there was anything else we needed, they were happy to make a trip to town to pick up food, beverages, etc.

All in all a great stay at a great property. Thanks!

Pelicanos made our vacation a dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin. Casa Pelicanos made our vacation a dream vacation. More than the amazing home, the amazing caretakers Chucho and Chari made life so simple. Don't get me wrong, the home is more amazing than the photos and every inch of it is very well maintained inside and out. If you're lucky enough to get one of the 2 upper master bedrooms I recommend sleeping with the windows open. When it gets dark, it reveals the stars and you feel like you are sleeping in a planetarium... AMAZING.

I agree with all the reviews, the cooking is better than any restaurant. Hands down the best pico de gallo I've ever had, which was made fresh every day for our large family. If it's not on the menu, just ask, they can more than likely make it... like my craving for ceviche. We went fishing one day and Chucho did all the cleaning and Chari cooked them up 2 different ways. I wanted to treat the kids to lobster on the last day, and YUP, fresh caught lobster arrived. In short, the level of service is as good if not better than any five star resort.

We were also lucky enough to be there for turtle hatching season, so if you can somehow plan your trip for that, it truly is an experience of a lifetime.

In short, take it from someone who reads all reviews and writes many on tripadvisor, this place is all that and more. And, yes we gave them a great tip when we left, and they deserved every penny of it. We will absolutely return... if they'll have us. Haha. Te amo mucho Chucho y Chari y gracias para todo.

My husband and I visit Mexico

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visit Mexico often but this was our first time bringing our two girls, ages 8 and 5 and our best friends with a boy and a girl about the same ages. First of all, the pictures do not do the house justice! Upon arriving at the house we really didn't know what to expect, you turn off the main road and drive down a jungle road. As we walked up the stairs and entered the living room, we were amazed at the panorama of the most beautiful blue water we have ever seen. At first look we felt the view couldn't get any better than this and then our oldest daughter came running down the stairs telling us we need to go up to the roof, the views were even more amazing! Needless to say we spent as much or more time outside on the terrace and beachside deck eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner or simply napping and enjoying the Caribbean breeze than we did in the house. Jorge, the house manager, was great. He met us at the house after arrival and gave us a thorough walk thru making sure we had all of our questions answered about the property and surroundings. Our oldest daughter is in her 4th year of Spanish and enjoyed talking with Chucho and Chari, our hosts. Chari was kind enough to handle our laundry needs for the week (we of course tipped her appropriately since that is not a part of her daily chores) and she made us breakfast, lunch, and dinner if we wanted it. We really have no negatives about the property or the staff. It was a very fun and memorable week!

This is a very lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very lovely home and we were glad we stayed there. The daily housekeeping and good internet speed were bonuses that we didn't expect. The beds were top of the line, the air conditioning worked well, and the kitchen was very well laid out. We spent a lot of time on the beach, and we walked the beach every morning. We rented a car in Cancun, and the owner sent us an email discount from Hertz that saved us $500.00. We used a VISA card for the car rental, and waived the insurance; VISA covers the car completely. Call your VISA card provider to be sure that they cover it. The owners are very conscientious. We would definitely stay there again.

Six short kilometers and the best dining on the Riviera Maya awaits you. Tulum pueblo is only 10 minutes more where there also are great restaurants, banks, ATMs, grocery stores, and many local shops. A villa in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Explore the lagoon in our kayaks. Just a short distance from the villa is a Mayan lighthouse used centuries ago to navigate to a favorite fishing cenote in the lagoon.

Other Activities: World class fly fishing on the lagoon flats for Permit, Tarpon, and Bonefish, deep sea ocean fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, world class kiteboarding and windsurfing, boating, kayaking, parasailing, shopping, wildlife viewing, hot air ballooning
