Soliman Bay, Tulum / Margarita Villa

About the Destination

Looking for a group or family getaway? Some in your party fish, some don’t, maybe children are included? This is the perfect location to make everyone happy. The area boasts some of the greatest flats fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon and snook, plus other saltwater species including barracuda, snapper and jacks among many others. We arrange door-to-door service for full or half-day anglers with the best guides in the area that offer tenkara fly fishing, regular rod and reel fly fishing, and even spin fishing.

Some guests in your party don’t fish? No worries. They can still spend time on the water doing eco and dolphin tours in the Sian Ka’an Reserve or enjoy their days at Margarita Villa snorkeling in the protected bay, playing on kayaks or stand-up paddle boards, sunbathing in a hammock or catching up on reading under the private palapa on the beach or poolside. Just a few minutes from the house are the picturesque and well-preserved Tulum Ruins. Spend the day exploring this archeological site and even swim at the secluded beach that sits below the main structure surrounded by steep rocky cliffs, palm trees and delicate cactus flowers.

The area near the house is filled with animal sanctuaries, cenotes, snorkeling, scuba diving, zip-lining, yoga classes, massage and spa treatments, golf and more, so boredom is never an option. Yet, your private oasis, Margarita Villa is still tucked away and secluded.
