The breakfasts were fantastic! Our host, Juan, was incredible. He was generous and super helpful. He also gave us great recommendations for activities/food. Every recommendation was amazing. Honestly, our vacation wouldn't have been near as great without Juan's help and staying at La Selva Mariposa. I have already recommended this place to friends. It is beautiful, comfortable, and enchanting. And, you get to listen to the sounds of the jungle while falling asleep!

La Selva Mariposa is a lovely paradise tucked away in the jungle just outside Tulum. The property is artfully laid out with private and semi-private bungalows among several pools and water features. We found the rooms cozy and comfortable, each one a work of art. Breakfast each morning was fresh and delicious, the staff were friendly and helpful, and Juan took exceptional care of us during our stay. We found the property to be a great location for getting to all of the sites. We ventured to Coba, Valladolid, several cenotes, Tulum and the beach. What a wonderful gem!!

Tucked away in a village on the road between Tullum and Coba - a quiet retreat. Juan looked after us very well and helped us get to Coba to explore the ruins and onwards to Tullum after our stay. Great fresh breakfast served outside in a quiet area in the jungle complex. It even has a cenote on site - though not one you would swim in - but can gaze down into. jungle noises and frogs to accompany your evenings and a great Italian restaurant a short walk through the village - he makes his own pasta.

La Selva Mariposa is the perfect base to explore Tulum, Coba and all of the beautiful surrounds. Everything is a short distance away, and you get to enjoy the tranquility of the jungle without the constant hum of tourists in the hotel zone. Juan and the staff are ready with wonderful recommendations for food, cenotes and ruins. We had delicious breakfasts every morning and were even able to cook ourselves dinner for the first time in a month thanks to Juan’s generosity. The room was beautiful with lots of authentic touches and an open bathroom. It was very clean with comfortable beds and all of the amenities we could have wished for. We loved dipping into our own private pool after a long day exploring the Yucatan. Thank you for making us feel at home, we already miss your little slice of paradise. From your friends down under.

I stayed here a couple of nights and really liked it. It was off season so I was the only one there. Being off season the hotel hotel garden needed a bit of attention but the room was very nice, clean and well kept. The owner was off site but always available and very friendly.
