A buddy of mine stayed here for a fishing excursion. We were only going to stay a week but stayed on a couple of extra days. Ben and Ester were so helpful and welcoming that I felt like I was staying with family. The town of Xcalak is exactly what I envisioned. Quiet, friendly, and very safe. The polar opposite... More

We had a lovely time at Casa Carolina Paraiso! Ben and Esther are so friendly and welcoming. We loved the coffee and brekfast in the morning plus snorkeling and kayaking out to the reef in the afternoons. The views from the end of the pier, our balcony, and the rooftop of the stars at night are breathtaking. The sound of... More

thanks, Esther and Ben, for the wonderful time in Xcalak! At Casa Carolina you can go snorkeling with free kayaks, grill Lobster, enjoy delicious breakfasts and most importantly - relax on the private beach with a fresh coconut........ ;)

Our third time to the lovely Casa Carolina....need I say more?! Thank you to Esther and Ben for the warm welcome, the beautiful accommodation and the delicious margaritas!! If you travel to Xcalak, paradise awaits you, and I urge you to give Casa (Carolina) Paraiso (soon to be renamed) a try...you won't regret it.

Totally loved our stay at Casa Carolina! We used Canada Transfers to Tulum and stayed overnight there, picked up our tiny car in the morning. The drive down was super easy and fun, a little adventure of its own :) Loved our room and the breakfasts are heavenly! Ben and Esther are lovely hosts, you never know when Ben will... More

We just got back from our second stay at Casa Carolina, havng stayed there and loved it last year. We weren't sure what to expect since we knew there were new owners, but we were relieved and happy to find that Esther and Ben are warm and welcoming and that Casa Carolina is as wonderful as ever. They have made... More

My husband and I would love to keep Xcalak, Mexico and Casa Carolina Paraiso, a secret. But we decided to share this special place, where we spent four, way too short, days in February. To begin with, the new owners, Esther and Ben Sutton, are the consummate hosts. They strive to make everything about your experience at Paraiso perfect. They... More

We just returned from a three-week trip to the Yucatan Peninsula and Casa Carolina was the perfect way to end the voyage. Ben and Esther were wonderful and made us feel at home in this beautiful part of the world. Each day allowed us to snorkel from shore or the kayaks and saw an unbelievable variety of fish. Can't recommend... More

We have just spent 10 wonderful days at Casa Carolina in Xcalak.It was our second stay after a two year gap. The rooms were again very clean and comfortable. We loved having a stove and fridge although Ester and Ben provided fabulous breakfasts(everyday) and dinners upon request. We can't say enough about their efforts to make our stay as fun... More

We just returned from Casa Carolina, our second visit there. Ben and Esther, the new owners, have made some great and much needed improvements to the property, including: brightening up and reworking the breakfast / cocktail / hangout palapa; providing a heartier breakfast; thoroughly sealing up the screens in the rooms (for the rare times when the breeze slows down...
