I had only planned on staying a couple of nights in Celestun to regroup and recover from a minor injury, but my stay was extended more days because I just couldn't get myself to leave this fantastic place. I am an active traveler and have never been good at beach vacationing. This place changed my mind, and I am actively... More

We spent a night at Casa de Celeste Vida as part of our 2 week family holiday on the Yucatan Peninsula. We took the apartment which has a full kitchen. In fact we were the only guests at the hotel the night we stayed so had the extensive garden area all to ourselves. My husband and teenage kids took the... More

We came across the Yucatan peninsula in early January 2015 and spent nights in Valladolid and Merida and visited various ruins, which were great. But the high point of the trip, the vacation part of the vacation, was our stay at Casa de Celeste Vida. Our hosts were down-to-earth and unfailingly helpful. It also makes a big difference that they... More

My husband and I stayed at Celeste Vida for 2 weeks this past March. It was fabulous, I can't say enough about the location, very quiet Mexican town with the cool Biosphere preserve, great markets and fun restaurants. Celeste Vida has a beautiful beach right at your door, loving dogs to keep you company and the food offered by Karen... More

We just left -- :-) And if we had more time,we'd STILL be there. Our "home" was as delightful as others have stated. Wanda and Karen are just about the perfect hosts one could imagine or ask for. I say "just about" just so they keep on thinking of the wonderful ways in which they can make your stay as... More

Wonderful place. Hosts are warm and inviting. They are knowledgable about the surrounding area and local eateries. Rooms are spacious clean and amazing. Best part of all you are directly on the beach. Wake up to the oceans waves on the beach. Watch the sun set into the warm Gulf in the evening.

We were so pleasantly surprised as we drove through the gates of Celeste Vida. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms are well equipped, lovely and comfortable. The beach access is so convenient and stunning to boot. The owners really became to feel like family and were very accommodating. We loved the access to kayaks and the community kitchen- it made...

Celestun has no fancy resorts or 4 star restaurants. It is poor and laid back. However, it has Casa de Celeste Vida. We stayed there for a day last year, returned for 4 days this year. Beautiful grounds, right on the very quiet white sand beach. Go see the flamingos, then come back to read and watch the waves. Beautiful... More
