#1 of 11 Specialty lodging in Punta Allen
Casual, tranquil, secluded and relaxed, Sol Caribe is a small, exclusive, beachfront resort with private cabanas and suites, on the Caribbean Sea side of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula; in the state of Quintana Roo… it is one of the last untouched corners of the Mayan Riviera with a desert island feel. Just 35 km south of the town of Tulum and 8 km from the village of Punta Allen, Sol Caribe is located within a protected oasis of extraordinary natural beauty, the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, Mexico’s largest wetland nature reserve and one of the world’s greatest fly fishing spots on Ascension Bay (Bahia de la Ascension). Explore the Mayan ruins dotting the jungle landscape, snorkel in the Great Meso-American Barrier Reef just off the beach, enjoy the fresh seafood in our beachfront restaurant,watch the sea turtles swimming in the waves… or just relax under a palapa on a white sandy beach that you have all to yourself.

Ok, First let me tell, you my name is Philip and I adventure the world. This is not paid solicitation and I get no benefit other than helping others from doing this review. Punta Allen is nothing less than incredible but be ready for a very hard trip to get there. Everywhere we go my wife and I rent a car. No exceptions. That said we did not have the right car for this adventure. I would strongly suggest a jeep, truck or high car. The potholes are NON STOP FOR 25 KIL. That is not exaggerating. We are taking big holes non stop. Not little bumps. To drive the 25 kilometers took almost 3 hours. Is it worth getting your vertebra and neck thrown out of alignment. YES. Is it difficult and stressful- YES. Please look at my pictures. No one is there. We had incredible whole beaches to ourselves. Big waves. The food where we stopped was incredible but kind of expensive. The squid and fish we ate were caught within hours of us coming. Fruit was also fresh. My wife is a culinary chief and even she thought it was excellent. Enjoy. Just be save and drive slow. You do not what to get stranded out here. Would I do it again.... Absolutely. I would just have a better car. You take out the oil pan on one the the giant holes than that makes for a bad day. Also, In one place on the road the ocean comes right up to the road you must drive and the road is sand. Be careful. We were specifically told by a local to not be around this area about 3pm or later. It gets dangerous to drive in that one spot. We drove back about 2pm and could already see the tide getting close to the road.

4 anglers for 6 nights (5 full days of fishing) with excellent guides arranged for us by Sol Caribe. We’ve fished Ascension Bay numerous times over the past 20+ years and always stay at Sol Caribe. We’ve grown to expect the best and are never disappointed with the accommodations, food, service and attention to detail. Lupita, Liborato and Antonio will treat you like family. We are already talking about our next trip!

Sol Caribe is a great little hotel in Punta Allen. We had the beach house for a week and we had a great time! The property is very well maintained. The restaurant is very nice and we enjoyed the food and drinks. We had the entire beach to ourselves for a few days and it was amazing! Lea the on-site manager is a long time guide in the area and has immense knowledge of the area and can steer you in the right direction. We got several massages from a woman in town and she was great! Lea setup a boat trip and we saw a group of dolphins, a few sea turtles and a manatee in the lagoon behind town. The area is gorgeous and has so many eco systems. The boat even took us to a “swimming pool” in the ocean with shallow still water and a velvety soft sand bottom. We had a great time! Rent a Jeep Wrangler or similar vehicle to get down there. We had a BAIC BJ40.

We just got back from an amazing trip at Sol Caribe! Lupita and her husband are the best! They go over and beyond the call of duty as managers. They anticipated our every need. We didn’t want for anything. Lupita came to our suite to invite us to watch an extraordinary event. A huge turtle on the beach laying her eggs! We also watched this amazing animal make her way back to the sea. We also witnessed the baby sea turtles that had hatched from other marked protected areas on the beach in front of the resort. Antonio took special care to make sure birds and other predators were unable to get to the hatchlings, and released them to the sea when it was safe. One morning we woke up to a storm with strong winds and rain. I thought I would skip going down to breakfast that morning. What a surprise to see Lupita at my door with hot coffee and a full delicious breakfast. Things like this make Sol Caribe so special. She also met us one day after we were coming back from fly fishing with a yummy tray of homemade brownies and banana cake. The food was outstanding, and if you like lobster and shrimp, you won’t find any tastier than at Sol Caribe. Lupita and her husband are amazing cooks! Although the Yucatan has been suffering from the Sargassum invasion, the staff at So Caribe worked diligently to keep the beach beautiful and Sargassum free. No easy job, working in the extreme heat. We’ve been to Sol Caribe many times, but this was by far our best trip ever! Thank you Lupita, Morris, and staff for the best trip ever! We shall return soon. 🐠🐢👌🏻

Although booking direct with the hotel and them charging my card in full, we arrived to find our 3 day reservation non existent. The local staff went above and beyond to help us find another place for 1 night gratis (not even close to the *** we had reserved) and comped dinner and drinks for us. They also assured us a room for the next 2 nights. I was not at all impressed with whomever mgmt was on the end of the phone when we were told we were without a room (in the middle of nowhere too). Seems the manager 2 days prior had quit was the excuse - not your customer's fault since it was booked on your own hotel website. If it were not for Lupita, the excellent staff member on the desk, we would have walked out not to return. It did sour our stay but it is a lovely location with good local staff.
