We visited this house to celebrate our wedding anniversary, as we wanted to have a nice and quite place to stay for a couple of days. The house has three little "casitas" with a small kitchen and access to a bigger one. We prepared our food every day and enjoyed the beach as much as we could (some mosquitoes, so... More

We have returned to Casa de Celeste Vida after 6 years and loved it even more, which we didn't think was possible! It is far enough outside Celestun to be peaceful and serene yet close enough to walk up the beautiful white sand beaches into the town center and buy fresh fruits and veggies at the market . You are... More

As the Americanization of Cancun continues, along with the unrelenting price increases, more travelers have discovered the Yucatan Gulf Coast and Celestun. Long known for its winter migrating flamingos, Celestun offers year-round sun, clean beaches, safety (unlike Cancun), great seafood and, best of all, Casa de Celeste Vida. The antithesis of the Cancun soak-em-for-all-they've-got hotel mentality, Casa de Celeste Vida... More

We had a wonderful time. We discovered Celeste Vida while traveling to Celestun two years ago. We had a great time and decided to return for a longer stay to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Kenn and Karen (the owners) are great hosts. We flew into Merida and Kenn picked us up and and drove us to Celeste Vida, and... More

we really loved our time at CV. everything was just what we wanted, it was the perfect quiet weekend, we had the beautiful beach almost to ourselves, ( except for the abundant bird life, happy beach dogs and dolphins) We just relaxed, ate amazing seafood and explored the small village. As always , we hated to leave and plan to... More

Celeste vida is an amazing place to relax, enjoy the sun, the beach, the calm and silence. Just outside the village of Celestun, it is quiet but near enough to do some food shopping and enjoy the few (not too interesting) restaurants. Owner Karen does everything to make you feel at home and answer your questions. She arranged a bird... More

We enjoyed our visit here very much. The place is just perfect in terms of comfort and security, the beach is lovely and our hosts exceptionally knowledgable about what to do in the area. They set us up with an expert birding guide, a local Mayan who has a masters from Cornell in ornithology. Not only is he fun to... More

This place is as delightful and lovely as shown on the guesthouse website. Really beautifully done- very comfortable- yet you still feel like you are living at one with nature. The owners have created a wonderful retreat which they amiably share with their guests. We loved sitting in the lounge chairs, watching the humming birds, and listening to the water... More

My friend, her little five-year old and I just had our second stay at Casa Celeste Vida in Celestún (our first time was two years ago) and we could not be happier with the wondrous experience we had in this little piece of heaven! As a Yucatecan who takes holidays in Celestún at least twice a year and knows the... More
