Unique place for exceptional people

If you need to stay on-line to check your Facebook regularly, watch your favorite channel on cable TV, swimming pool, sunbathing on private beach in front of luxury hotel, avoid locals, need organized tours, free cocktails throughout the day and wild parties in night, La Calma may not be the right place for you.

But if you prefer small home-like staying in the real nature and still be relatively closed to civilization, be fully independent on others, exploring on your own, and active style of vacation, you are on the right page!

Endless opportunities for travelers

Vášniví cestovatelé

Nature lovers and passionate travellers

If you stop for a single moment, you will hear thousands of sounds of nature. Maybe group of coati (Mexican tejón) will run over in the distance, toucans with big yellow beaks will be flying over the trees or a green iguana sunbathing on a hot stone will be nodding at you. There are endless possibilities for exploring hidden places, meeting local people and understanding their impressive culture and history.

Beautiful entertainment park Xel-Ha is situated 3 km from La Calma where you can enjoy diving with the dolphins!

Families with young children

It is not uncommon that we are visited by families with small babies. We are always surprised how children are capable to live in real nature. The children get to know the beauty of it, they avoid rush of big cities, day-to-day stress, some of them will learn how to swim and maybe how to spend their time more actively. We speak from our own experience with two children.

Project La Calma

Our approach, simple rules and philosophy

Staying in harmony with people and nature

Whole project has been created with the aim to touch the local Mayan community and wild nature as less as possible. The building has been built by hands without any help of electricity or any heavy machinery. All works from the development of land to the last details have been made by local Mayas.

100% independence

La Calma is independent to the external environment, the electricity is generated from the solar energy using MPPT panels, water is pumped from own boreholes. Everything which is used at the house is biodegradable, waste is filtered and cleaned in its own biodigestores and two sewages. There is no undesirable waste, the house is fully self-sufficient and is not contaminating the land.

Simple rules

  • All rooms, palapa, kitchen, and yoga studio are non-smoking
  • All guests are obliged to conserve the consumption of water and electricity
  • All food must be properly stored to not attract the wild animals living in jungle
  • All guests are obliged to follow additional rules and conditions presented after arrival

Focus on design and beauty

We tried to engrave our sense of beauty, functionality, and simplicity to the every aspect of La Calma. Design of the patio and other decoration is the work of graphic designer and sculptor Ivan Nacvalac.

Healthy & delicious food as a new experience

We love eating and cooking meals from natural and local ingredients. Our meals are always fresh and of the best quality. Our vegetarian, vegan and even raw meals are highly appreciated by all type of guests from all over the world. We can also cook fish and meat for you likings.

Fruits, vegetables as well as meat and fishes depending on season, catch, and harvest and this is why our menu is changing every day. We want to provide you the best experience from the local cuisine. We cook only from extra virgin olive oil.

Frequently Asked Questions

To be fully independent and move around without any constraints, we always suggest to rent your own car. The rental service is very reliable, reasonably cheap and navigation is super easy.

Well-known brands like Hertz, AVIS, Europcar and others are available right at the airport in Cancun or in Tulum. We recommend do find the best deal and book your car in advance via rentalcars.com or other popular sites. Pick up at the airport is usually much cheaper than in Tulum.

To reach further destination outside state of Quintana Roo, we highly recommend ADO GL buses at ado.com.mx.

We can arrange airport transport service for groups in private van at 200 USD/return for up to 8 people.
We live here with small children and feel safe. Dos Ojos, Tulum, beaches, and most of the places on Yucatan/Quintana Roo are safe for families and individual travelers.

We recommend to follow the same safety rules as in your country.
Go to Dos Ojos (GPS: 20.315964, -87.367489), it is very close to Xel-Ha entertainment park, about 20km north from Tulum. Dos Ojos is a well known touristic location, it is a name of one of the most beautiful cenotes on Yucatan, so many people are able to navigate you there (definitely all taxi drivers and bus drivers from around Tulum or Playa del Carmen).

Please stop in front of the entrance to Dos Ojos area and call us (see the contacts below). We will navigate you to our house. La Calma is not a hotel but a private house, so there are no navigation signs. The locals know our house as Casa Mateo.

You may download our navigation map here
You can use a shared iPAD with 3G internet connection for free (although the connection is never fast and you may expect some outages as well).

Most of the restaurants in Tulum provide wifi access at no additional cost or you can use computer/printer/scanner in one of many internet shops in Tulum.
We accept payments in cash (MXD, USD, EUR), transfers via Paypal or international bank-to-bank transfers. We do apologize but we do not accept credit cards due to limited on-site internet connection.

100% of price must be paid one month before arrival in case of groups or during check-in in case of individual guests. There are no exceptions.

You can easily withdraw your cash in one of many ATMs in Tulum or other cities. We recommend ATMs of HSBC in Chedraui or ATMs in Scottia bank. Less popular brands may not be compatible with your credit/debit card.
The temperature is between 20 to 28 degrees of Celsius during "cold" and mostly dry months (October-April) and between 26 to 33 degrees of Celsius in hot and humid season (May - September) but the weather is often surprising.

We do not have an air-con but it is definitively not needed during high season (October-April) when the temperature is usually very pleasant in night - the house is shadowed by high trees providing natural cooling.
You find many laundry services in Tulum, price for washing and drying is about 14 peso per 1 kg of laundery. We may collect and pick-up your laundry at no additional cost.
All windows are protected by nets against mosquitos, every room has its own bathroom with hot shower. We do not have alarms but we may give you a nice wake up call :-). All outlets are 110V, US standard. Guests are not allowed to use hair dryers or any other high Watt appliances because they would suck all energy from our batteries. Sorry for that but we love to stay off the grid!
We are pet friendly! Althought La Calma is located in the intact nature, there is nothing to worry about. All animals are more scarred of you than you might be scarred of them. Just watch your steps and do not touch anything you do not know :-) We have two dogs and one cat staying in our house, all are very friendly to kids.
