We stayed in the Rio Carmen guesthouse for two nights. The place is very central, very easy to find and the garden is just a little paradise. I would highly recommend for a super relaxing time in Mal Pais !

This AirBnB is one of the most beautiful I ever saw. It is quiet but you are close to everything you need. It has an amazing garden. It was perfect for our stay in MalPais. We were in Paradise.

We absolutely loved our stay at Jessica's beautiful guesthouse! The gardens were filled with butterfly's, frogs etc it was a beautiful little sanctuary. The room and facilities were all clean and really did feel like a home away from home. The board rentals were the cheapest in town and the beach was pretty much on our doorstep. Jessica was always available and helped us with everything we needed. She was extremely accommodating and the whole family made us feel at home. We miss it already and hope to go back soon!!

We spent two nights at Rio Carmen but wished we could had stayed more! For such a great price, it's a gorgeous little hostel with plenty of hammocks, places to store food, good wifi (it even worked in our room away from the public areas), and it's super close to the beach and all the best restaurants on playa carmen. There's no AC, but the fans in the rooms are perfect for keeping you cool at night. There was a place to park our car outside the property on the street..everything seemed secure and we didn't have any problems, so as long as you don't leave valuables on the seats you should be fine! Overall we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely return if we're ever in Malpais again. Thanks for hosting us, Jessica!!

Jessica is just great! She tried her best to help us, provided us with a lot of useful information and she made us feel very welcome. The place itself was perfect - we had a very clean room, the best equipped kitchen on our trip so far, a likeable outdoor shower, a relaxing area with hammocks and exciting wildlife to see there (we saw an opssoum, iguanas, hummingbirds,...). The place is close to the beach, restaurants, cafes, shops and the busstop. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone!

This place is a little paradise. We have only spent one night but I wish I could have stay a week. Everything was perfect, the area is full of flowers, green vegetation surrounded by many butterflies. The kitchen is big, full equiped and very convenient , the room is so cute in a little bungalow, the bed have a mosquito net which is perfect. Showers and restrooms are very clean. I really felt in love with the decoration in the area. Jessica made this place a perfect nest, with colorful stuff everywhere and hamac to rest. Thank you very much ! Will definitely come back here :)
