Chelo and her sons were friendly and helpful. The place is just outside of town but very convenient to the public beach and the ruins, (much better beach access than in-town places). And with the free bicycle, you can be in town in five to ten minutes. Nothing is far. Though right on the road, I didnt hear the traffic... More

The owner will welcome you whole heartedly to this wonderful place. It is built in a traditional way with no aircon, but magically the place stays way cooler than anywhere else. If you are after local advice the owner will help you with anything. Upon arrival you are given free bikes to get around meaning that everything becomes really close.... More

This is an amazing and hauntingly beautiful hostel! It's so exotic, owners are fantastic and very helpful. We found out where and when to see tortoises, where to eat and we had bikes which made our stay so much easier as the hostel is a little remote. Breakfasts are delicious, every day some other warm meal and fresh exotic juice,... More

Would really recommend staying at Chelo and sons'sweet hostel - couldn't say a bad word! Chelo was easily contactable by email and from the few messages exchanged we could tell how lovely she was and this was definitely the case! She was warm and welcoming and her English was really good (despite what she says!) and she explained everything to... More

I stayed with Chelo for 3 days at the beginning of my Mexico holiday. chelos's warm welcome after a long flight was a great introduction. The cabana I stayed in was perfect for an independent traveller - it was clean, the bed was comfy and the fan did the trick. There was some noise from the road as there is... More

We arrived in Tulum thinking we would stay for three days and ten minutes after arriving at Posada Los Mapaches decided we wanted to stay longer! So our three days turned into six and if we didn't have a flight to catch we would have stayed longer. Chelo and her sons are the perfect hosts! They are so friendly and... More

This is a beautiful and impeccably run casual, lodge style accommodation for the adventurous traveler or backpacker. Rooms are palapa and wood style cabin units surrounded by trees and plants. No airconditioning, but fan is perfectly sufficient under the breezy thatch roof. Location is outside town, on the highway just across an entrance to the Tulum archeological site. Accommodations include... More

Lovely little family run hostel! Chelo and her sons have a genuine care for the people that stay at the hostel. It ticked all the boxes in that it was clean tidy, close to the main attraction and secure! The only thing this place lacks is a nightlife but if you're looking for that you're probably better off in playa... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Los Mapaches. We felt at home from the start thanks to Chelo, the owner who met us upon arrival. It felt adventurous and something different compared to a normal hotel by the beach. Great price, fantastic breakfast prepared by Joaquin every morning, very practical with bikes included. It important to know that the highway... More
