About us

Wake to a shimmering Caribbean sunrise, the gentle sounds of  waves breaking on the reef and tropical bird songs on the beach of the Yucatan Peninsula’s fabulous Costa Maya. Here where the Caribe pirates hid their booty in the 1600s and the even older ruins of Mayan cities rise on the highlands to the west of the Xcalak peninsula glide through the untouched jungle.

Kohunbeach with a name inspired by Kohoon Palms of the famous Kohunlich Mayan ruins inspires the same tranquil pleasure from the palms nurturing its cabanas.Your hosts, Janet and Guillermo have lived in Mahahual for many years and know the area well.

Janet has been an innkeeper for most of her life and has brought to Kohunbeach the easy-going, laid back style you would hope to find on this quiet and peaceful beach.
She has also brought her love for flowers and plants.

They will be happy to help you with advice and planning for trips to nearby Mayan ruins, diving at world famous Banco Chinchorro, fishing, or just snorkeling on the reef. (Their “front yard”!)

Then…there is always just rocking in a hammock or lounging on your own beachfront patio with a good book.

Guillermo cooks up some really good local fish over a wood fire. He’d be glad to arrange a delicious dinner for you.

Guillermo is also available to show you  our beautiful nearby jungle and cenotes.
