The Property

We are one of the first B&Bs and surfing schools in Santa Teresa. A small family operated bed & breakfast established since 1996. We are right on the beachfront in between the main surfing breaks of Playa Carmen or Playa Santa Teresa—only 10 minutes walking distance.

All rooms are equipped with a private bathroom, hot water, A/C, WIFI, safe and we include breakfast at the rancho and from November to April we operate a beachfront restaurant.

We also have yoga or massages available at the rancho. Our property is almost 5000 square meters and has a lush tropical garden with fruit trees where you can observe iguanas, monkeys, birds, and more wildlife.


This totally equipped cabina is for people who want everything in one place. Air conditioner, fan cooler, fridge, gas stove top, rice cooker, blender, coffee maker, toaster and everything you need for your special vacation or online job. You can just have your breakfast in the morning and head straight out to the beach.

If you are looking for a place to work on vacation this will be your perfect choice... Only a few steps from the beach, ample space, fast internet connection. One of the few affordable spots in the area with full kitchen, beachfront access, restaurant and bar (only available from November to April) and a supermarket (100mts).
