Felt like part of the hotels family. Owners were always around and helpful and always had time to talk or answer questions. Always had great directions and reccomendations for the area. Great water pressure and cold a/c and frig in rooms. Location was quiet and close to everything in town and just a short 5 minute drive to the beaches...

An interesting, relatively small hotel, delightful owners, a variety of rooms, each very attractive. Situated in Tulum, which is an excellent centre for exploring the Yucatan, and the Mayan ruins, and has an abundance of good restaurants. We cannot wait to return to the Mariposa and its special delights.

The Mariposa Inn made our stay in Tulum especially wonderful. It is conveniently located in the downtown area, but tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in the original Mayan part of the city. This delightful neighborhood is friendly, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The innkeepers, Guillermo and Mariza are warm and friendly and eager to be helpful in...

We turned the corner off the main avenue through the very authentic Mayan center of Tulum to arrive at La Mariposa. Mariza and Guillermo literally greeted us with open arms and the offering of a cool drink. The hotel is very clean and our room was an open floor plan with 2 large beds, a kitchenette and large bathroom &...

for $100/night, the room was so basic (budget) that it was quite disappointing.. the hosts are nice, although they hesitated giving us breakfast when we were only 10 min late.. "breakfast" means cheap toast bread with jam and coffee.. you have to take cabs to the beach of course. it really makes sense to add some $$ and stay on...

I came to La Mariposa to stay with a friend already booked in a few days earlier, he had told me that Tulum was a beautiful place and we intended to stay there over Christmas and then travel to Playa del carmen.
