When I saw the huge vacationer crowds in Cancun and in Playa del Carmen with noticeably larger portion of them in their 20’s to 30’s, I could not help thinkinging of the group of young and energetic people I hosted earlier on at Villa Tortugas.
These are young professionals using their talents and skills to set up a trade show full of modern technologies. They are super intelligent and results-driven tech workers from Mexico City, ranging from new college graduates to technology & engineering managers. I had a total of 30 of them staying at Villa Tortugas.
During their five days of stay, they always worked till late night and sometimes early morning before they were bus-dropped at Villa Tortugas to sleep. Getting up and refreshed in late morning, they would take brief times to enjoy the beautiful garden, listening to the birds singing praises to them, and watching our ducks and turtles feed. Then their bus would drove them back to Barcelo to work.
In the morning before they checked out, we gave them a special coco-cutting treat to release the fun-seeking young hearts. They were all happy. Some even took a few uncut coconuts as souvenirs! Polite and easygoing, what a work hard and play hard crop. As I sent them off, my eyes started to well up. I knew I would miss them, mis jóvenes amigas y amigos.
The two-story stone house at Villa Tortugas was built in 2005 as the family main residence. It is now open to accommodate your group programs.
On the first floor, it has a full-size kitchen, a large open family room/living room/office/activity area, a laundry room and a full bathroom.
On the second floor, it has three bedrooms, a master suite (with jacuzzi tub, shower & walk-in closet), and another full bathroom. It is air conditioned and has hot water showers.
Sleeping up to 15 people, it is suitable for large groups of vacationers, while small groups as well can rent the three bedrooms separately.
With its high quality optical fiber internet, it is also a very popular for coworking/coliving purposes.
Combined with the 6 cabañas, a large swimming pool and the beautiful tropical garden at Villa Tortugas, it is often sought by organizers for holding retreats, workshops, camps and all kinds of group programs.

After many months of experimentation, learning, and revisions, we are finally very pleased to launch the Villa Tortugas website!! Thanks to the friends and family who have offered their comments and helpful criticisms. Special thanks to Claudia for the many photos. We hope that the site will be both functional as well as enjoyable to browse. Of course, we do hope that it will let more people know about the wonderful place that is Villa Tortugas. We are so excited to share our little oasis in the jungle with everyone. If your travels bring you our way, please do make plans to visit us. The Tortugas are waiting for you.
