Casa Hamaca Residential Guesthouse

Details

When you want more than just a bed and some breakfast.
Welcoming, Knowledgeable, Affordable. As anxiety-free as home can be. Mi casa es tu casa...My home is your home.. An award winning bed and breakfast in the heart of the the Yucatan. Casa Hamaca Guesthouse is: inclusive NOT exclusive; comfortable NOT luxurious; friendly NOT condesending; It feels like home without the anxiety.

Where great experiences become the best memories because the deeper you dig, the richer the rewards.
Don't just visit the Yucatan....Experience It! Welcome to the real México...the real Yucatan.
But what is the real Yucatan? It is different things to different people. It's the rich history moving backward in time to the Mexican Revolution, the War of the Castes, the Spanish Colonization of Mexico, the Mayan civilizations and their "lost" cities...all the way back to the asteroid that crashed off the coast of Yucatan and caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. The asteroid probably also caused the fracturing of the limestone shelf of northern Yucatan that eventually grew into what are now known as cenotes…freshwater “sinkholes”, many of which are open to the public for swimming.   It’s the friendliness of the people…the smiles, the greetings and the welcoming hands of locals to foreigners and strangers.

It’s the living Mayan world with the food, crafts, language and culture that is alive and well and part of the everyday landscape. The delicious tamales wrapped with banana leaves instead of corn husks. The rich flavors of dishes like chimole or relleno negro or puchero. The variations on tortillas like panuchos and salbutes or the very regional and local pibihuas and volcanes. (Come with me to the municipal market and you can taste the differences).

It’s the architecture of the Mayan pyramids as well as their thatched roof huts set in close proximity to Spanish colonial structures.

It’s the closeness to nature that comes from living in a climate where you almost never close the doors or windows. From the thousands of flamingos on the north coast to the rare jaguars that still roam the jungles very near to Valladolid. The huge variety of birds that announce daybreak and nightfall. The orchids and flowering trees, the wide variety of tasty fruits and the medicinal bushes that cure many ills. The iguanas that can reach four feet in length to the tiny (but powerfully voiced geckos) that hide behind outdoor light fixtures waiting in ambush for mosquitos and flies. The stingless bees that produce some of the best honey in the world.

From the first moments of entering the grounds of Casa Hamaca Guesthouse you feel transported to another time and place. As you enter the jungle to cross the bridge through our lush garden with over 80 different plants and trees and more than 15 bird species, you walk into calm serenity. The beautifully restored hacienda-style main building reflects Colonial design and is filled with many Mayan artifacts and Yucatan-themed murals. The veranda overlooking the gardens is a great place to meet other guests over a beer or a glass of wine and share your adventures. Curl up on the sofa or in a hammock to read a book. Cool off in the pool after a day of exploration. The Xoco Loco restaurant and bar serves up local specialities as well as far-away foods and beverages.
How your morning unflods at Casa Hamaca Guesthouse:
In what seems like the middle of the night, you hear the roosters down the block come on-line to announce the dawn of a new day. If you drop back to sleep the next sounds you hear will be a variety of birds greeting the day in the lush jungle garden. When you enter the dining palapa you are greeted by the aroma of freshly-brewd coffee. Grab a cup and sit on the wrap-around verdanda and watch the world come alive...the hummingbrds and butterflies. A great way to begin your day in the Yucatan.

 "Come join us for festivities, fiestas and fun." My name is Denis Larsen and I have been travelling to the cities and small villages of Yucatan for over 20 years and am happy to share my experiences and recommendations with you.  
 
It's been an affair of the heart. I have a deep love for the Mayan people. All of the staff of Casa Hamaca are Mayan. Some still speak Yucatec Mayan and live in small villages surrounding Valladolid. Some of them speak Spanish as a second language; a few speak some English. But all of them go out of their way to make your visit to Casa Hamaca comfortable, interesting and educational.
 
 
 
A guest recently wrote: "Casa Hamaca Guesthouse is an experience of it's own. Everyone in Valladolid seems to know this place, for some very good reasons. First of all, the Hacienda is an artwork. Every room has its own theme. Several Mayan artists made this place look very unique. The lush garden, the plunge pool, and the indoor hammocks add an extra nice touch you can't find elsewhere. The place is 5 to10 minutes away from the zocalo, depending if you're a fast or slow walker. The owner, Denis, is such a nice guy. His hospitality and friendliness made us feel so welcome we didn't want to leave. His staff is also great, make sure you tip them! The rooms are clean, airconditioned and wifi work really, really well!!! Food at the hotel restaurant is delicious! All in all, this place is a great deal! Thanks, Denis and staff, for everything!"
Location
Situated on the quiet interior corner of the small, almost traffic-free Parque San Juan in a friendly neighborhood, Casa Hamaca Guesthouse is perfectly located for convenience and access to all areas of interest within Valladolid. Casa Hamaca Guesthouse is within easy walking distance of the newly restored train station, the bus station, the main square, ATMs, grocery stores, convenience stores, 24 hour medical clinics, 24 hour pharmacies, local restaurants and cantinas, food courts, camera shops, phone stores, ice cream shops, a children’s playground, clothes shopping, jewlery stores, an open-air adult exercise center, bicycle rentals, two cenotes, artisans markets, souvenir shops, a 5K walking/jogging path, the municipal food market, cinemas, museums, and six historic churches. It’s far enough from the main square so you don’t have to deal with the tourist crowds and the exhaust of the many buses that are often there with the day-trippers from Cancun and Playa del Carmen, but close enough to walk in a very few minutes.
