In complete contrast to our last huge AirBnb, our next one was tiny; just one room with barely enough space to move, and the only luggage storage space was in a boarded loft area, up a very steep set of steps. We’d chosen it for its quirkiness though, and it didn’t disappoint. The room was at the bottom of an artist’s garden, with the toilet, washbasin and shower situated a few steps away. There was a communal kitchen, and we were greeted by 7 rescue dogs – all of whom were very friendly and didn’t bark much!
The garden was filled with sculptures and paintings.
There was also a little museum onsite too.
The reason we stopped here was because we had a long drive across the Yukutan peninsular and we’d read that there were some great Mayan ruins nearby that were off the normal tourist trail. Sure enough, we found a couple of these only 5 minutes away and had the entire sites almost to ourselves, seeing no more than a handful of other people there.
After visiting both these places and having seen Chichén-Itzá we’d seen all the ruins we wanted to, so the next day we set off for the coast again but on the other side of the peninsula.
