Playa Blanca can be described quite simply. It is remote, beautiful... and perfect. After a shoreline flight, a five-minute boat trip, and a 35 minute jeep ride, five thatched-roofed adobe cabanas with oceanview terraces come into view. Here the intrepid traveler will find the sort of idyllic retreat that money alone can't buy. Part of the Yucatan's 1.3 million acre Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, Playa Blanca is perfect for couples and for families who like their isolation tempered with a measure of activity. Guests are encouraged to kayak through mangrove lagoons, visit the island's Mayan ruin, snorkel the spectacular offshore reefs, bike along the expansive white sand beach and of course, flats fish for permit, bonefish, and tarpon. The knowledgeable staff (exceptionally well versed in the local flora and fauna) includes a private chef that features fresh seafood and a variety of regional specialties.
The cottage interiors are whitewashed and beautifully decorated in bright Caribbean accents. Each cottage is different and all have ceiling fans, a large bath and a private veranda that faces an untouched, white sand beach lined with coconut palms. A bar offers indoor and outdoor service, as well as covered seating on top of the building. This is a perfect spot to sip a tropical drink and watch as the waves roll in.
For the fisherman, Playa Blanca uses the same guides as Casa Blanca and fishes an area south of Ascension Bay. They are equipped with 16' Dolphin skiffs and work hard to insure that the fishing members of your family sacrifice nothing in the way of angling opportunities. While you are fishing, non-angling companions can enjoy sea kayaking, snorkeling, wind surfing, bird watching, bicycling or relaxing in a hammock on the edge of a beautiful beach. All this makes Playa Blanca the perfect romantic getaway with great fishing included.
