From the sun baked Saltillo floors adorned with traditional Mexican tiles to the dramatic colonial kitchen, this villa has been lovingly designed as a modern appreciation of the classical Mexican hacienda. A striking example of Mexico’s finest craftsmanship is the Moorish brick dome, or boboda castellana, of the dining room and two of the bedrooms. The high ceilings and flowing spaces of the interiors, which open through French doors to the flowering garden outside, blend together to create a truly exotic Caribbean experience.
Four bedrooms accommodate from nine to eleven guests at Villa La Golondrina. The main floor bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fabrics and treasures from Mexico and Guatemala and include stunning bathrooms. The second floor master suite is a self-contained apartment with a small kitchen. It is connected to the main floor via an interior staircase opening to the sky. The suite offers a world of its own, a private romantic space in which one can totally unwind.
One of the most popular attractions in the Playa del Carmen area is Ek Balam. With several Mayan structures still intact, your tour is sure to reveal much interesting information about the history of the site. For a little more adventure, Parque Xplor offers a variety of activities from zip lines, to amphibious vehicles and cave exploration with a chance to cool off in the natural rivers. There is something for everyone in the Mayan Riviera!
