Ten miles south of Casa Blanca, you will find Playa Blanca Lodge. Playa Blanca is a sister-lodge to Casa Blanca but is more remote and isolated and offers greater privacy and the best access to the fishing in Espiritu Santo Bay which receives very little fishing pressure. The bay is only accessible by two lodges. Playa Blanca and Paradise lodge, set well to the south.
The spacious, luxurious lodge with a deep-set covered porch, is perfect for reading and relaxing, as well as a roof-top sanctuary, a fabulous place for stargazing. There are palapas at the water’s edge, equipped with comfortable furniture and brightly colored hammocks.
Playa Blanca Lodge accommodation is in large duplex cabanas set among the palms near the beach. The rooms have en-suite facilities, large bathrooms with marble vanities, and natural wood furnishings set in white interiors with tropical themes. Each room has its own patio overlooking the grounds and nearby Caribbean. Please note that rooms that are set back from the ocean have air-conditioning, while ocean front rooms take advantage of the sea breezes. The lodge offers seven rooms and accommodates fourteen guests perfectly.
Being a more remote location, Playa Blanca Lodge has no neighbours, only pristine tropical paradise as far as the eye can see - blue sky, white sandy beaches, palm trees, and turquoise ocean.
Socializing with other guests is at your own discretion and the lodge bar and restaurant provide the perfect spot to mingle and talk about the day's activities.
The food rivals any of the best restaurants on the Yucatan coast. All meals are served in Playa Blanca's beachfront restaurant and bar. The bar is well-stocked and the service is excellent. Cocktail hour under the roof-top palapa overlooking the Caribbean and the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve is a must. Breakfast is a favorite meal at Playa Blanca, with coffee, juices and platters of assorted tropical fruits and cereals. From pancakes and French toast to scrambled eggs and omelettes, anything you want is on offer. The kitchen will also accommodate any special dietary requirements.
For anglers heading out to a full fishing day, an extensive lunch buffet is prepared each morning. Selections change daily, and include assorted sandwich makings, salads, shrimp and fish dishes, fruit, cookies, chips, etc. Guests staying in for the day or participating in non-angling activities may choose from a lunch of their choice served in the dining room, or a tailor-made picnic basket to be enjoyed outdoors.
Each afternoon after guests return from fishing, the chef prepares tasty appetizers to pair with a cold beer or cocktail. The evening dinners are three-course meals taken from the chef’s revolving menu. Everything is made from scratch daily, from bread and specialty salsas to soups and desserts.
For the non-fisher, activities range from snorkelling and kayaking to cycling and hiking/ walking along the beaches, to eco-tours - or you can simply go for a swim and relax on the beach.
There is WIFI at the lodge.
