It's been almost a year and I have since taken many getaways, yet my mind is always taking me back to this little paradise in the jungle. Uncle Lou and Mo made my younger sister and me feel right at home from the moment we were picked up from the airport to the second we were dropped off. Their knowledge... More

How can you fault a jungle paradise where the host puts the coffee pot on at 7 in the morning for whenever you get up? We stayed here for 6 nights and had a lovely relaxing time. The casita was extremely comfortable; good hot shower, plentiful supply of toiletries and towels, beach towels and sarongs also provided, comfortable bed and... More

My husband and I just had a really wonderful and romantic experience while celebrating our 10th anniversary at La Selva Mariposa. We were greeted at the airport by a friendly Lou and from the time we arrived until the time of departure, we were treated like special guests. First off, the grounds/surroundings are just gorgeous with peaceful sounding water features... More

How happy we were to receive your review this morning. It brought tears to our eyes. You helped fulfill our dream, thanks! We try hard to find that balance of being available to offer service, drinks,fresh towels etc and leave you alone so you can enjoy the privacy and tranquility that LSM was made for. It looks like we were... More

My wife and I recently spent a few days here and had an amazing time. We had a great time relaxing on the grounds and cooling off in our private pool. The day trip activity recommendations were spot on. Extremely nice to have such local and personal insight. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your recent visit with us. We are thrilled it was an incredible stay, but much too short. The cool thing about guests who stay only a few days and find us awe-inspiring will come back again and often bring friends or family for round 2. We will be... More

We left the kiddo with grandma and my wife and I headed to La Selva Mariposa on our first get away alone. It was a great choice. Very different from my past vacations in Cancun. This place is so very quiet and relaxing. We stayed 5 nights in #4 and it was awesome. Breakfasts were great. We used the rooftop... More

What an amazing place! We stayed for two nights in April but immediately wished it had been longer. Lou and Moe couldn't have been more helpful and really made us feel welcome. The gardens are beautiful and our room (suite 3) was perfect. The breakfast was delicious and there is a great place to eat just over the road, really... More

La Selva Mariposa hits the mark on every level. We fell in love with the property the second we were escorted in by Lou. We stayed in suite # 3 and enjoyed five nights of relaxation in the jungle with our days full of beaching, exploring the ruins, and swimming in Cenotes. It was exactly the break we needed. Stay...

It's almost difficult to know where to start, but as with all great places it's the personal touches that make La Selva Mariposa stand out from the crowd.
