Pet friendly hotel Maya Luna Mahahual
Maya Luna pet-friendly hotel is located in a very secluded area south of the small town of Mahahual. There are hardly no neighbors around. And the neighbors that do live there are dog lovers themselves. They can run around, play on the beach and swim in the sea. Maya Luna beach is paradise for dogs as well!. Your pet-hosts at the moment are Yaax (12 years old) and the new kid in town, (Pax, only 8 months old).
Pet friendly hotel policy
Some things to keep in mind when you come on a holiday to our pet-friendly beach.
Fees. Cats and dogs stay for free, there is no extra fee at Maya Luna to bring your dog.
Restaurant area. The only place where they are not allowed is inside the restaurant and the kitchen. No problem though, most people have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside on our patio or in our beach garden..
Stay the night. They can stay with you inside the bungalow. Preferably they do not sleep on the bed; we recommend bring their own bed and/or blanket. That will also make them feel more at home.
A clean beach. Please bring something so you can collect their poo on the beach. This is responsibility of the dogs owner, not of our staff who clean the beach on a daily basis.
Leaving the dog in your room while you are off the property. In general we don’t recommend to leave the dog(s) alone in the room for too long. Since its not the dogs home, they might react differently. Some dogs get desperate and start barking and/or crying. When you are off the property and the dog is locked inside the bungalow, we cannot clean your room. We don’t want to risk the dog escaping and run away. Please contact us to discuss a convenient hour to clean your room
Amount of dogs, size and race. Per bungalow we accept a maximum of 3 dogs. There are no restrictions regarding race or size.
Taking care of your dogs in Mahahual
Where to get food for cats and dogs. In Mahahual you can buy food for dogs and cats in Baroudi. Its a small grocery shop located in the area we call “Casitas”: They have a very basic selection of food, so if your pet needs some special food, bring it from home.
Veterinarian in Mahahual. Mahahual does not count with a pet-clinic. There is a veterinarian living in Mahahual who can assist with basic problems. She does not have the tools to operate but can prescribe some medications and do consultancy. The nearest pet-clinic is in Bacalar. In Chetumal you will find various pet-clinics. Some of them well-equipped.
In some of them they sell special food for animals.
Traveling with pets
Travel with your dog by car to our pet friendly hotel
For those who live in Quintana Roo, Yucatan and Merida and Tabasco most likely you will visit us by car. Don t forget to bring enough water and food during the trip and of course never leave the animals inside the car when you go shopping.
Traveling with your pet by airplane.
There are several Mexican companies with flights to Cancun as well as Chetumal who are pet-friendly. All have their own policy regarding flying with your pet. We at Maya Luna have been flying with them, but never with a cat or dog. Se we cannot express any recommendation. Guests have told us positive stories on both of them.
Volaris – Travel with your pet A whole page with information regarding type and size of the cage, the necessary documentation in order to travel with your dog. They have restrictions for some type of dogs.
Interjet – All you need to know to bring your best friend with you Among others they give good information on pet documentation and on bringing your pet in the cabin or in the baggage compartment. They also have restrictions.
In memoria Dinga, the sweetest dog of the Costa Maya.
For many years your pet host has been Dinga. This is the little story she told guests on how she arrived at Maya Luna and how she adopted Droppie, a little kitty cat when he was 3 weeks old.
Hello, my name is Dinga! I am very happy to invite other dogs to visit pet friendly hotel Maya Luna with their bosses. I arrived at hotel Maya Luna when I was about 5 months old. At first they did not want me there. My guess is it was because of the cats. They just ignored me. They did not give me food. But I decided that Maya Luna was the place where I wanted to live!
Therefore the next 2 weeks I showed them I could be a very good watch dog. Finally, when I was nearly desperate they gave me food and told me I could stay. Boy, that was the best meal I ever had ! (Very good kitchen, your boss should also try it!).
And the lady boss and me? Since then we have been best friends. I always try to please her and I am very nice with the guests, especially with the children. Everybody thinks I’m a very sweet dog which makes me very proud!
Finally, one more last but not least thing. The only area that is not pet friendly in Maya Luna is the inside restaurant and kitchen. My bosses won’t allow you neither inside. Don’t worry, enough space to play outside! It’s really paradise here! You can sleep inside your bungalow if your boss allows you!
Droppie arrives at our pet friendly hotel
Droppie arrived at Pet friendly hotel Maya Luna in October 2012. We found him in the mangrove behind the hotel. He was all alone and very hungry. My boss thinks he was only 3 weeks old. So we adopted him and now I am sharing the couch of my boss with him. He is a black cat an we get along very well. Sometimes we play together at the beach. Here is a photo of him and me eating together at pet friendly Hotel Maya Luna
Maya Luna is happy to be one of the pet friendly hotels in Mexico. Probably your boss is looking for other pet friendly hotels in Mexico, maybe this website can help them. Hoteles Pet Friendly en México.
