Walk out the door to Yal Ku Lagoon. View of the caribbean sea and Yal Ku lagoon from one of three terraces on ocean side of Casa Christensen, or inhale the jungle view from the opposite side. Expansive space with full gourmet kitchen, a friendly Maya couple will cook meals for you at an additional fee. Gardens provide cocos, bananas and papaya trees, birds, butterflys and the occassional iguana and plenty of flora.
