Tucked away on the eastern edge of the Yucatán peninsula, El Cuyo is a little piece of paradise. Located within the Ría Lagartos Nature Reserve, not far from the border between Quintana Roo province and the State of Yucatan, this tranquil seaside town might be one of Mexico's best kept secrets. But this small town is quickly gaining popularity, as its stunning beaches and extraordinary wildlife are discovered by more and more people.
El Cuyo lies where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean Sea, resulting in majestically calm turquoise waters where the sunsets are truly breathtaking. Visitors to this area are always pleasantly surprised at the great biodiversity and wildlife in El Cuyo, as flamingos, sea turtles and other sea birds roam this area in great numbers. This area of the Yucatan coast is popular for fishing tours, kayak tours and kitesurfing thanks to the shallow waters along the shore.
El Cuyo remains largely undeveloped, as the city is centered on a single public square, with only a handful of small businesses in the surroundings. Traditionally a vacation spot for people from the interior of the peninsula, foreigners and travelers are usually few and far between in this area. Despite being relatively remote, El Cuyo is a very safe place to visit.
Reaching this remote village by car from Playa del Carmen or Cancún will take slightly more than two hours, but it will be a journey to remember, as the meandering drive will take you through several picturesque villages along the way.
There is a lot to discover in El Cuyo, Yucatán. The Yucatán real estate market still provides outstanding value, don't miss your chance at finding a dream vacation home or investment property at a great price!
