The story behind the construction

Villa Duendes represents the expression of a young and experimental architect, creating a genuinely unique, mystical and restful atmosphere nestled in the heart of the jungle. Fully organic and environmentally friendly the domes were constructed using a unique building method developed in the middle east to resist heat, flooding and earthquakes.

Other things to note

As a convenience we recommend the use of a car or transportation when first arriving to Villa Duendes. The domes are located 2km from the federal high-way on a charming jungle road, meaning you can easily walk or cycle to the beach or to the collectivos (public transportation running from Playa Del Carmen, Cancun and to Tulum). We offer free parking and bike rental as well as electric bike rentals for an additional fee.
