Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Catemaco - Villas Tepetapan and RV Resort

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

We are offering 3 casitas and 2 apartments for your vacation adventure. All are newly remodeled, Two of the apartments offer a full size bed and all the remaining units offer king size beds. All units have confortable living room furniture and color TV. The kitchen is set up with stove/oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, blender and most everything you will need for everyday cooking.

Give yourself a lazy day swinging in a hammock or swimming in our two pools. Light up the gas grill for a BBQ, or chat with friends around the world using our wireless Internet.

Catemaco is located on Lake Catemaco, the 2nd largest lake in Mexico and just 20 minutes from the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Sitting at 1000 feet in elevation, the nights are typically cool (in the 70´s) 10 months of the year. Our family owned, gated resort type property is located in a quiet neighborhood and within less than a block a nice little grocery store. Fruits and vegetables are available from a number of little stands just a few minutes walk rom your casita. There are 2 large stores, similar to Wal-Mart, about a 5 minute drive places to stock up on grocerys and other products. Lake Catemaco is only a 10 minute walk away and centro (downtown) about a 20 minute walk following the sidewalk along the lake and passing a number of small parks. Of course you can always take a taxi, about 20 pesos, to anywhere in town or catch a bus at the corner to almost anywhere in the area. Our property is staffed 24 hours a day and my husband and I are here every day to answer any questions.

Some of the attractions in the area include beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, waterfalls, jungle, coffee and tobacco plantations, fishing, boating and some of the most beautiful scenery in Mexico.

Tour the lake by powered launch and at Monkey Island you'll pass within yards of the Mandrill baboons and Howler and Spider monkeys.

Thirty minutes away on the ocean's edge, you'll visit pristine beaches, with scuba, snorkel, kayaking and fishing. We're in the middle of the Las Tuxlas area of Veracruz. Waiting for you are extinct volcanoes, wild rivers, huge waterfalls, and hidden lakes.

Being still in the 'undiscovered' area the true Mexican culture very much an everyday thing. Undiscovered, that is, except by many Europeans, Nationals and Hollywood, where 'Medicine Man' and 'Apocalypto' were filmed (check out the waterfall and jungle scenes). National Geographic crews have been in the area documenting butterflies that are unique to the area and universities from all over the world have explored the ancient Olmec culture native to the area.

Spent Christmas through much of January 2015 here. Casitas spacious, clean, well maintained, kitchen sufficiently equipped, comfortable with nice furniture, and in total more than we had hoped for. Wi-Fi good for mail and surfing, but generally not streaming movies. Grounds and pool also well maintained. Pool spotless and grass trimmed. Flora plentiful with river at one end of property. No bugs. If concerned about privacy and security, this entire facility will put you at ease. Very quiet. Owner very knowledgeable, pleasant, and accommodating. Fruit and vegetable stands within easy five minute walk. Large grocery store, while not like a super Soriana or Walmart, has everything we ever needed and much we didn't. City of Catemaco large enough to be of interest and not full of traffic. Flora and fauna in surrounding area range from empty beautiful beaches to cloud forests, coffee and fern plantations, gigantic trees with orchids and bromeliads, all sorts of bird including flocks of Macaws. It is a true jungle. I would recommend this facility and geographic area to anyone. I would recommend that one not get Tepetapan mixed up with the Ritz-Carlton or beach resort hotels however. One also should be good at doing research on the area and figure out how to entertain themselves as it is not Disneyland. Bring some books. We shall return.
