Why We Like It

Because it’s clean, the staff is always friendly and, actually, that’s all you need in a place like Mahahual. Also, the location is excellent, just a few meters away from the beach.

Fodor's Expert Review

An eco-friendly, gay-friendly and pet-friendly little hotel, located just one block away from the amazingly beautiful beach of Mahahual. Posada Pachamama offers a good, friendly service and prime location on a budget. Traveling the Costa Maya and its stunning array of natural sights and attractions, means that all you need is a safe, clean room at night, and that’s exactly what Pachamama provides.

There are four categories of rooms, varying in size, location and kind of bed, but they all share a simple, traditional décor, with neutral colors and wooden furniture. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and ceiling fans, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, in-room safe box and minibar. Some rooms come with balcony, while the Family rooms also include a bunk bed.

Tip There are some rooms that enjoy partial views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Rooms are small, so getting a nice ocean view can make a big difference. Make sure to book the right kind of room for you.


These bathrooms are petite and narrow. They come with just the basic stuff, a bathroom sink, toilet and shower with hot water. The rooms have their own towels, and there are also beach towels available upon request.


To get into Posada Pachamama you’ll pass through a cozy veranda with manicured vegetation and hip rustic ceiling lamps. This nice area used to be a restaurant, but now is only the lobby’s waiting room.

You Should Know The hotel’s website still has images that could give the wrong impression that a restaurant is still in place, but that’s not the case anymore.

Sulumar (5-minute walk) is a place where locals go. Fresh fish straight from the water and prepared especially for you. Simply delicious. Divino Delicia Italiana (1-minute walk) will surprise you with their incredible pizzas.


Pitaya Beach Club (2-minute walk) is an ideal place to have some drinks and a sun tan. You may simply unwind on a lounger and forget about the whole world. Delicious Tequila drinks.
