There is tremendous demand for the house by the Mexican nationals during July and August
as well as during semana santa (two weeks at Easter), and the rental rates are higher for
those periods. Mexicans who can afford to do so flock to the beaches to escape the extreme
heat of the yucatecan summer. We have heard the partying is tremendous as well, so we
would have to remove the words "tranquil" and "serene" from our property description during
The yucatecan winter, spring and fall are warm enough for Canadians, however, and
wonderfully peaceful, and considering the long day of travel at both start and finish of your
holiday we hope you can plan for at least a two week stay. It takes time to unwind, and there
are lots of local attractions, including a nearby golf course, to ensure you are never bored.

Hurricane Season.... This part of the Yucatan peninsula is naturally sheltered from
hurricanes coming in from the Caribbean, and is rarely touched From June to the end of
November is considered hurricane season, but the weather is spectacular at this time of year
nonetheless. The thrill of swimming and floating in the Gulf waters when they were over 90F is
one of my happiest memories of my trip there one September. If you are considering a holiday
to our house during "hurricane season", we can offer the following assurances. If your
reservation approaches and a hurricane is predicted to touch Mexico, we will refund any
money you have paid to us and cancel your reservation. If you are in Mexico and a hurricane
is forecast, causing an interruption to your holiday, we will refund the entire house rental.
