We just came back from another amazing trip to the Yucatan and stayed at Celeste Vida for 2 nights. Where do I start? First, 2 nights was not enough. We have been to the Yucatan many times but had never been to Celestun. What a wonderful place. There are few beaches left in the world where there is little development and where you can walk on a sand and shell-strewn beach for miles and miles and not see a soul. And the sweet, friendly Mexican town is so charming, with most everything our family loves (fresh pan dulce, beautiful produce, every type of hot sauce!)
Casa de Celeste Vida is such a charming, pretty (and ecological, which is important to us) place with very friendly owners who indeed (just like other posts have said) make you feel like a part of their family. Our family of 3 was in a studio (it was all that was available) and were comfortable. The compact room was very well-planned and it was so nice to have a kitchenette in the room. We loved cooking our own meals because what better view to the water is there than your own room porch?
We also enjoyed using the 2 kayaks and the 3 bikes that are at the property and our son adored the cute dogs that run around and make everyone giggle.
We are definitely returning to Celestun again and hopefully we can stay at Casa de Celeste Vida again, however, I am not so sure because it is getting too popular!
Thank you Wanda, Karen, and Kenn for a wonderful place!
