Customized Small Group Trips to the Yucatan

Immerse yourself in the daily life and culture of a small Mexican pueblo. An ideal location to escape the tourists and explore the Yucatan. Rather than stay in a commercial hotel or an all-inclusive, you will stay in a beautiful century-old home complete with 18-foot ceilings, a lovely garden and a beautiful pool. Casa Lunita is located in the center of the small, yet bustling Villa de Baca.

Customize your trip. Have our own personal driver escort you to your choices of Maya ruins, flamingo nesting grounds, the Colonial city of Mérida, beautiful cenotes, beaches, haciendas, and more.  You’ll be just 20 minutes from the beach and 25 minutes from Mérida. Maximum group size is 6 people.

 Design your trip to nurture your passions. If your passions are ancient ruins and colonial architecture, birding, nature, history, culture, photography, art, writing, yoga, Spanish and Maya languages, tropical plants and culinary arts, a quiet retreat or a trip to beach, you will feel inspired here.

This is an ideal spot for a small, intimate, spiritual, writing, health, or yoga retreats.

After arriving in Mérida, all transportation is included.

Meet your hostesses


Carolyn King and Crystal Kynard

We have been appreciating the wonderful people and slower-paced life of Baca and the beautiful and unique flora and fauna of the Yucatan since retiring in 2012. We enjoy the new tropical gardening challenges, cooking and eating with friends, family and guests and discovering new things about the Yucatan and ourselves every day.

We are alumni of Ohio University. Carolyn has a BA in Spanish from Ohio University and a certificate from Cambridge CELTA (teaching English as a foreign language to adults). She was the Marketing Designer for Ohio University Press for 10 years and Graphics Editor for the Athens News for 6 years. Crystal studied microbiology at Ohio University and managed the City of Athens Water Treatment Plant for 30 years.

One thought on “

  1. If you’re a fan of the ubiquitous, sterile, white, boxy, impersonal hotel room that you can find in every North American city with their liquor and candy bar filled mini fridges, icy air-conditioning, and 200 plus TV channels, you probably won’t like Lunita B&B in Baca, Yucatan. If, however, you should prefer small Mexican towns, stunning architecture, a gorgeous swimming pool, fascinating gardens, 20 foot high ceilings, antiques, fabulous breakfasts, sweet well-behaved pooches and engaging, kind and friendly hosts, you will find these and more at this most charming colonial house right beside the 17th century church and a few steps from the town square. We spent four days in Carolyn and Crystal’s restored colonial and were more than happy to have found it. It’s a perfect base for travelling Yucatan’s roads and a quiet alternative to busy Merida. There’s much to see and experience in every direction and coming back to Lunita after a day of sight-seeing is such a treat. Awaiting is a cool pool in an enchanting courtyard, and often a great chin-wag with these lovely and interesting women. We stayed in the Blue Room which is private, large and roomy with a comfortable king sized bed and a modern ensuite bathroom. Breakfasts are a real plus…healthy, imaginative and tasty….you will be hard pressed to find a better one anywhere. If (hopefully, when!) our future travels take us back to Yucatan, we will definitely return to Lunita B&B. Highly recommended!
