Everything about Flycatcher was exquisite, charming, totally comfortable, beautifully presented, from the Mayan and Oaxacan artwork throughout the rooms to the wonderful breakfasts to the incredibly warm and helpful owner and and staff. Our family of five stayed two nights. Convenient to Uxmal and about four other archeological sites, to the flamingos of Celestun, to several other small towns in... More

While traveling from Tulum to Campeche we read reviews on this property and found it to be a nature lovers paradise away from all the beach vacationers. The Uxmal Ruins were recommended by the owner and she was not wrong. No crowds like Chichen Itza and the natural beauty and peaceful views were nothing short of dreamlike. The rooms at... More

The Flycatcher Inn is our favorite destination in the Yucatan. The Inn is in close proximity to Uxmal and the Puuc Route and meets all of my Wife and my needs. Kristine and Santiago are a great asset in helping visitors with all things Maya. Rosa is a great hostess and a real joy to converse with every morning. What's... More

John and I unexpectedly had an extra night, so we made sure to stay here again! As before, the serenity and beauty was matched by the excellent food and service. Our schedule allowed us to take advantage of the breakfast on the patio, with cooked-to-order eggs. several kinds of fruit, and coffee or tea. The room was well-appointed, and we... More

Spent one night at this small Inn located in Santa Elena after a day visiting Uxmal. Beautiful grounds, nice clean room, great mattress, super pressurized water shower not gravity and above all quiet. Did not use the AC as the ceiling fan was more than adequate. Main reception area has lots of reference material and Rosa, the manager, is very... More

We spent 2 nights here as a base for our exploration of the Puuc Maya sites. Because of a vacancy we were offered a free upgrade to a large room in the main building, which was luxury indeed! But I think the normal rooms, in bungalows dotted around the beautiful garden, were probably very nice too. The terrace outside our... More

A comfortable, clean hotel surrounded by lush gardens, with short hiking trails behind the hotel, we spent an enjoyable week here. Nicely decorated with local crafts, comfortable bed, refrigerator in very large cottage. Two good restaurants are close by. Friendly and helpful staff. About 1.5 hours by second class bus south of Merida, and close to Mayan ruins. Santa Elena... More

Great breakfasts (included in room rate), great service, lovely room, fun walks around the property to birdwatch. Guests have access to a wide variety of resource books (on birds, wildlife, ruins, culture, etc... Rosa was a most gracias hostess/manager. Beverages available - just ask - they can be charged to your room. Great location just outside of the village, but... More

We made a last minute change of plans on our trip to the interior of the Yucutan and found this oasis on Trip Advisor! We got there after dark, were graciously greeted by Rosa and led to a beautifu room. Their breakfasts (included with the room) of fresh fruit, bread, eggs, juice and coffee were well prepared and very good.... More
