Two outdoor showers let you shed the salt water before returning indoors. The roomy first floor bedroom with full bath and marble sink has its own screened door out to the patio.
A hard wood staircase brings you to the spacious master bedroom with its three sliding screened doors that open out to the expansive terrace. Its full bath has a double-headed shower. The other ample size second floor bedroom has a full bath and its own access to the terrace.

A vacation at Yum Villa is a completely unique experience, combining raw beauty, breathtaking vistas and a taste of nature with just enough civilization. You are surrounded by magnificent beauty and yet very comfortable with just enough modern conveniences.

We found Yum Botic to be a perfect match for our style of tropical holiday. The panorama from the upstairs deck was priceless, and we spent hours enjoying the view of surf and sand, both during the day and at night watching the star show overhead.
The beach offered imcomparable opportunities for walking and exploring, and perfect whether we walked north or south. Lots of birds everywhere. The entire experience was so relaxing!
We used the kayaks on several occasions and had a blast paddling out toward the reef. While snorkeling, we encountered spotted rays, lion fish, and a loggerhead sea turtle.
As for the house, the kitchen was perfect and included a large refrigerator, plenty of pots and pans, and counter space. The bedroom was spacious with a comfortable bed and the showers were large and heavenly.
We also took a day trip to Maya ruins and stopped off in Chetumal to buy groceries on the way back.
Alfonso and Patty, the managers, were very helpful and courteous. We can't wait to return to Yum Botic! Read more

This is the most beautiful, remote, and special place you could hope to stay. The spacious, airy house is situated on a private beach. Pick up some groceries in town and tuck in for a week or two of uninterrupted, paradise living.

"What a peaceful vacation! The house is airy, cozy and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. The ocean views from almost every angle of the house are breathtaking. Extremely tranquil and the beach is all yours. Highly recommended."

This is the ultimate getaway; Yum Botic has it all. Privacy, constant cool breeze,lapping turquoise ocean at your door. The only sounds are the palms blowing in the soft crosswinds. I could stare at the ever changing muti-colors of the ocean for hours. From the expansive deck, on the second floor, by night I am sure I touched the Milky Way for the first time...catch a falling star and save it for a rainy day! I highly recommend this location as your next vacation location!
