We found La Selva Mariposa on Trip Advisor and couldn't be more pleased with our experience. From the moment we arrived we knew we were someplace special. The grounds are beautiful, the architecture unique, and the birds that visit here are intriguing, we often just walked around looking for exotic birds in the evening. Our favorite was the Blue Crowned Motmot.
We originally planned to get up early and explore all the local sites to see, but breakfast was so good that a couple of days we changed our plans and stayed and ate breakfast before heading out. Mo and Lou are gracious hosts and worked hard to provide delicious breakfasts, which wasn't easy considering all my dietary restrictions.
They also provided a wealth of information on local attractions including directions and a description of the experience which was very helpful in planning our daily trips to ruins, cenotes, etc. Their knowledge of the surrounding area is extensive. Mo suggested we try Rancho La Cachimba a restaurant across the street. Boy! are we glad we tried it.The food was so good and the staff was so friendly we ate there every evening after we returned from our adventures.
All that walking around Coba and Ek' Balam ruins had made my legs and feet hurt, so Mo set up an appointment with Ariana for an on-site massage.
Ariana provides massages in a beautiful open air palapa style building with plenty of privacy. It was an amazing experience.
We travel a lot and I can honestly say this is one of the best Bed and Breakfasts we have ever stayed at. We rented a car and drove many kilometers to see several ruins and cenotes and local attractions, it was comforting to come back to La Selva Mariposa each afternoon to refresh and relax.
Our room was beautiful, comfortable and serene.There was maid service provided daily with beds made and fresh drinking water.There were so many extra touches that I can't list them all. We slept like babies and were very satisfied with our stay here and hated leaving. We would definitely stay there again! Absolutely Amazing!
