Lodging in Maya land

The Maya navigated the Yucatan Peninsula coast trading goods from distant lands, one of such goods was sea salt, a key ingredient of their diet. One of the main places of production was the area that now is the Ria Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, where sea salt is produced to this day. The base location to explore this magnificent reserve is the small fisherman's town of Rio Lagartos, Yucatan, Mexico. Spend a few days in a pristine natural environment while staying at Hotel Villa de Pescadores, one block away from the Rio Lagartos lighthouse. It was designed, built and operated under the personal supervision of its owner, Ing. Felipe Gonzalez Rodriguez over the past 10 years. The hotel rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans, TV, mosquito netting, private bathrooms with hot and cold water, and a furnished front terrace overlooking the sea.
