Far from the boardwalk, this small inn on the beach is a quiet, relaxing place. Cabanas are simple concrete rooms with private roof decks where you watch the moon rise from the sea; the decor is a mishmash of styles with painted murals and Mexican blankets, but you'll be tempted to spend much of your time outside anyway in one of the hammocks that sway under palapa umbrellas. Families might want to request Room 3, which accommodates four people. The Dutch owners are often in their small restaurant, where photos of Frida Kahlo, Pancho Villa, Emelio Zapata, and other Mexican notables line the walls. Guests are served complimentary breakfast there; nonguests often show up between 3:30 and 8 pm to dine on well-prepared seafood.

All I have to say is that this was the best vacation we've ever been on. My boyfriend and I rented a car and stayed at the Maya Luna for one week and absolutely loved it (plus it's inexpensive for the location!). It's eco-friendly w/solar power...toilet paper can't be flushed, but who cares? (Not for people who need pampering!) The food was fantastic, the host (Carolien) is amazing and so helpful. We went scuba diving, deep sea fishing, to the
Lake of Seven Colors (WOW!). This place is away from tourists and so relaxing. I only wish I knew of more bungalows like this, so we could visit other places!
