We stayed at La Selva for three nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. We booked the seamless vacation package so we had transportation from the airport. While we did have a little trouble finding our driver everything else was perfect. We took advantage of every offering La Selva had. We had the 5 course dinner by the Chichen Itza...

Reviewed 23 January 2017

I just returned from an amazing 3-day weekend at La Selva Mariposa, and all of the amazing reviews here, as glowing as they are, can't quite capture how special the place truly is. I found myself using the word "magical" from the moment we drove onto the property, and it felt right during our whole stay. Moe and Lou have...

Hola. We were overwhelmed by your detailed review. This should have been part of our web site or trip advisor description. Thanks so much for mentioning so many things from the easy drive from Cancun to the roof top jacuzzi that was heated to just the right temperature. We love sharing our little oasis in the Mayan jungle with travelers...

Our 3 nights at La Selva Mariposa were the perfect tranquil getaway. We were incredibly relaxed listening to the babbling water features, rustling jungle leaves, and natural wildlife throughout the property. Lourdes, Dylan, Jose, Julio, Alberto, Juan, Beatriz and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome and informed. Just a short drive from the B&B were the...

Lourdes, Dylan, Jose, Julio, Quan, Cornelio & staff are such lovely people!! They even stayed back late the evening of our arrival to welcome us. On top of that, their taxi drivers were all booked that night, so the kind grounds-keeping staff came to pick us up from the airport!! Outstanding customer service, friendly, happy and always going above and...

We stayed here for a week after travelling around much of Mexico for 3 weeks. Hence we were really glad to find such a lovely oasis where we could just relax and not do too much of anything!!

If you are thinking about booking here...just do it! A really unique b&b in the jungle about 20 minutes out of Tulum, we had a great stay at La Selva Mariposa.

We just returned from our trip to Mexico and we stayed at La Selva Mariposa for 5 nights. This place is not on the beach, it's about 12 miles in the "jungle" but on an extremely well paved road. If you want that jungle feeling but also want the beach it's a perfect solution. It takes no time to get...
