You should stay here! It's a wonderful, relaxing hideaway - close enough to the beach and ruins yet pleasantly far enough away from all things hectic! Lou & Moe provide an amazing experience; they've really thought of everything. We traveled to Cancun after just 2...More

We look forward to your 3d stay with us. That is a great complement for us that you want to return AGAIN. And yes, we are proud of our involvement in the MG community. We love our life here at La Selva Mariposa.

Excellent place to stay if you want quiet and relaxation. The water features Lou has built are so calming and cooling in the middle of the jungle. The open air bathroom and shower was so fun--almost like camping in the jungle but with all the...More

La Selva Mariposa was the ideal setting for our first trip to Mexico. The owners were well prepared to answer all of our questions and more than met our needs. Example: the page in their guide book labeled Mexican driving 101 provided many good tips...More

Can't thank you enough for the outstanding review. I liked how you said the charm was the LOCATION. Now that we have a fun Mexican restaurant in Macario Gomez, guests like yourselves can enjoy an inexpensive and authentic meal just steps from LSM.

Yes, it is safe to drive from Tulum to Valladolid. We will recomend you to drive in the day instead of driving in the night. Make sure to fill the tank, pay in cash and you will be there in less than 2 hours.
