Just returned home for house hunting in Yucatan.

From the moment we checked into Flamingos Inn we cancelled our reservation in Merida for our last night before going home.

Stig, the owner, makes you feel like a an old friend returning home from the moment you arrive. He greeted us with a huge smile and made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable.

The penthouse terrace has three seating options. Lounges for sunning, table and chairs for cocktails and a very nice alcove with couch and tables for a bit of shade...all with beautiful views of the Gulf.

Breakfast is delicious, healthy and filling and served on the main floor which has both views of the Gulf and gardens.

The pool is partially shaded with tall palms and great for a short swim or dip. The Gulf of Mexico is steps away and the beach is covered with great shells! The mornings are so calm in the Gulf that you can easily spend an hour floating and day dreaming.

Although Chuburna Puerto is a quiet fishing village with few dining options (I'm planning on opening a restaurant here next year) you can easily get to Progreso by collectivo (minivan) or taxi (about $15 USD). Progreso has great shopping, restaurants and a grocery store to pick up goodies for dinner. Don't forget to get a nice Cabernet Sauvignon or some beer to enjoy back at the Inn.

I've been traveling in Yucatan for over 25 years and this is now my new favorite! If you're looking for a wonderful place to unwind, this is it!

Room Tip: All three rooms are beautifully appointed with terraces. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Thanks a lot for your nice review! It was a pleasure having you and Rachel here, and I hope to see you back very soon. Emilio keeps looking for a lot for you, he better find one very close to my place so that we will be neighbors!
Saludos

Great place to relax. Delicious breakfast by the Norwegian owner Stig. He is funny and helpful. He can arrange massage and boat trips.
Big, spacious, clean rooms with private bathrooms and separate balconies - and hammocks. We had the nicely decorated penthouse with a large terrace overlooking the Gulf. This place is great value. Both pool and beach. Free wifi. Nothing too much is going on around here so you should have a car to visit nearby places like Chelem, Progreso, Merida. No public buses but the owner will most likely arrange something if you need help to get from A to B. Thumbs up!

Thanks a lot for your nice review! You are very welcome back, and then you will see quite a few changes as I have had made some really nice furniture and decorations for the penthouse - but you better come over and check it out yourself :-)
