Living in Community...but not in a Commune. Cool off in the pool. Curl up in a hammock. Chill out.

Valladolid seems to attract progressive scientists, academics, thinkers, educators, archeologists and anthropologists, gardeners, medical professionals, artists, historians, designers, builders, cooks, farmers and writers….mostly people who are well read and well traveled. People who are interesting and who are interested in the world around them. People who do things with their hands and minds. If you feel Casa Hamaca Residential Guesthouse might be a fit for you (or your friends, kids, parents, etc.), read our website at and write me with any questions or comments at We are family friendly, LGBTQ friendly,

As our community grows organically, our ideas and goals will probably morph along with the growth.

Casa Hamaca Guesthouse, in the tranquil time-warp of Valladolid, Yucatan, is accepting discounted longterm rentals…an easy trial run.
Things to think about before your move.

Cool off in the pool. Curl up in a hammock. Chill out.
Come to Valladolid to skip some of the current craziness; calm down, relax and see if Valladolid could be your next home. It is a tranquil city with deep roots in the past, small enough to walk or bicycle to most places. Good medical and dental services, fresh local fruits and vegetables, good transportation services, low cost housing and very safe. Surrounded by Mayan ruins and freshwater cenotes.

Casa Hamaca Guesthouse has been in business for over 10 years and every year has received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence     and four times has received Trip Advisor’s Travelers Choice award. Besides having a very good restaurant, bar, plunge pool and spa on property, we host many activities and events including monthly Valladolid English Library lectures or programs, movie night (often with paired food), game night, dance night,  live music, cooking classes, various workshops, shaman visits and volunteer opportunities.

And wherever you are outside you are surrounded by our jungle-like garden full of fruit trees, butterflies and humming birds .
