"My husband and I rented a house in Celestun for two weeks in June of 2000 for our honeymoon. While in Celestun we came to Eco Paraiso almost daily and fell in love with it's romance, ambiance, and natural beauty. We dined in the restaurant, my husband is a chef, and have never had such fantastic food in a foreign country. We rented the kayaks one day and the staff was so kind to us as we weren't staying at the hotel, to make us a deal of the kayaks and a special crab dinner when we returned. We swam in the gorgeous swimming pool and took pictures under the waterfall. The staff and the grounds are so unbelievable and the experiences of Celestun, Merida, and the Yucatan were nothing short of spectacular. For those more interested in spending their vacations outside of the hustle and bustle of typical tourist resorts and cities, Eco Paraiso and Celestun are the top choice we've found! Thank you for a honeymoon we will always remember!"

"Together with another couple we spent five days/four nights in your lovely Xixim resort. We had an unforgettable time in this pristine part of the world. The cottages we stayed in were very attractive and the service of the staff was A-1. We took three excursions to the Celestun Reserve and admired the beautiful nature, the bright orange flamingos, the great number of other birds and during our night trip, the crocodiles. Your guide, Alejandro Zib was superb. Not only is this young man extremely knowledgable but in addition he was just great company. We believe that to really see the bird life well , one has to start at the hotel not later than 6 am which we fortunately did. The estuary at that time is just mind boggling and so is the fauna. We also made very long walks on the extensive beach . All in all its was a great experience which we enjoyed to the fullest. Hopefully this beautiful setting will be preserved for ever."

"We spent two days of our Yucatan tour in Ecoparaiso Xixim and it was perhaps one of our most memorable times ever. The location was breathtaking, the staff helpful and simpatico, a superb & knowledgable guide in Alex, few other guests and great facilities. We hope to return and hope the long & rocky road to the hotel never gets paved over! The little natural history museum in reception is just one of the unusual touches. The fishing village of Celestun is well worth a long visit as well."

"Eco Paraiso was the highlight of our Yucatan tour. The flamingos, the quiet but colourful town and harbour life, the beach shells, fox, raccoon and coati and lots more provided something for everyone. The staff were charming and the food excellent. For the specialist birder Alex puts on a spotlessly professional tour of local endemics and waterbird spectacles. If its there he will find it."

"I spent Easter week at the resort with my wife and her 80 ish parents. A very good time was had by all. The tours were excellent. I am planning to return with my grown children next Easter."
