The lodge is located on the tip of the Punta Allen Peninsula which extends into the northern edge of Ascension Bay. Since it is in the preserve the town and lodge have to maintain its original intent, look , number of rooms and hence it maintains an old world charm that has long been lost on the rest of the Yucatan.
Our cabanas are thatched roof individual buildings about 225 square feet with a large private bathroom. Electricity is solar powered and limited but it powers fluorescent lights in our cabana. The water for your bathroom is heated by solar and natural gas and is quite fresh. Even so you should only drink the purified bottled water we provide throughout your stay here. There is no air conditioning in the cabanas, just a Caribbean breeze! There is also a pair of rooms in the main house known as the "Studios" which are perfect for a couple. Since there is little electricity air- conditioning is not available and there are no TV's, phones or faxes on the room. Some folks may find this too rustic while others find it a perfect blend of island charms. It is not good fit for your trip.
The Dining room is a round palapa with a white sand floor (actually the entire town has a white sand floor) with 4 tables and plenty of chairs. We keep coolers with Cervesa or soft drinks for you to enjoy anytime with a full bar as well. Many evenings we will eat outdoors under the stars.
The dining room is our central meeting area where we'll meet in the evening and morning . Meals are a variety of Mayan dishes and some fabulous fresh seafood. After dinner we'll plan the next day's activities. Who will be paired up for fishing and where we will go.
For those who aren't fishing the next day we can plan a snorkeling trip out to the nearby reef, a birdwatching excursion, a kayaking exploration on your own, or perhaps an ecological tour of the Sian Kaan Preserve, a day to visit the ruins at Tulum or Coba, a fly fishing lesson or just refuse to do anything and get back to that book and pick out the hammock you want for the day.
