We present you Can Cocal, our home and hotel in El Cuyo. For years we projected the dream of having a small hotel in a place that we would fall in love with. We have made it a reality, we want to share with you our dream place, our hotel in El Cuyo?
Since our first backpacking trip as a couple in 2000, we have been accompanied by the idea of living in a wonderful place and sharing our home with travelers, friends and visitors. This dream has come true in El Cuyo, a port on the Yucatecan coast that stole our hearts. In Cuyo we enjoy a privileged place as a destination of nature and calm.
Can Cocal is the dream of creating a lodging with soul, with a warm and close treatment, where you can rest and disconnect, where you can eat deliciously, a place that you remember with affection and joy in every way.
OUR DREAM: HOTEL IN EL CUYO, YUCATÁN?
We projected our dream of the little hotel for years, in each of our trips we were accompanied by this idea on a recurring basis, we were weaving it without realizing it between talks and kilometers. We wanted to live in a place that we fell in love with.
Since the first time we visited El Cuyo in 2011, this little paradise on the Yucatecan coast has been entangled in our hearts. This beautiful beating has led us to our dream: we build a hotel in El Cuyo, Can Cocal, our home?
Our hotel in El Cuyo is located within the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, a privileged place of nature where the flamenco of the Caribbean is the icon of the place. Here other natural wonders await you, if you like nature and calm you have come to the right place.
I hope you enjoy the peace and calm that El Cuyo gives, delighted to receive you in Can Cocal ???
El Cuyo is an unmissable corner if you love quiet places, paradisiacal beaches and nature. Magnificent destination, one of those places where you have no choice but to slow down, take off your shoes, feel the sand and breathe life with another pause.
KNOW CAN COCAL, OUR HOTEL IN EL CUYO
Welcome to Can Cocal, we open the doors of our house for you to enjoy El Cuyo. Can Cocal means the home of the coconut palms. Dog is a Catalan word that means home, and coca It is how the land with coconut palms is called in Yucatan. The Catalan and Yucatecan culture are the basis of Can Cocal, added to other cultural seasonings that complement Can Cocal?
If one thing was clear to us, it is that Can Cocal would be imbued with the essence of this land that has given us so much: chukum walls (stucco used by the ancient Maya in their cities), henequen and liana crafts (products from the area), details of the Mayan culture in each room and of course the hammock (one of the great inventions of humanity in our opinion?).
The satisfaction of creating and decorating relying on artisans that we have known for years thanks to our work of The Shortest Way. They are many years learning and knowing, the dream could not be anywhere else.
We recycle the coconut palms that we cut down to dress the rooms, they are part of Can Cocal, who gains strength and charm with each of the thoughtful details. We are sorry, and we hope that energy reaches you.
We guarantee that the Can Cocal team will make your stay a nice memory.
We are located 50 meters from the beach on the summer avenue of El Cuyo

I went to Cuyo in November and I remember very well passing in front of the hotel several times. I just thought: «Can», they must be Catalan!
I would have read the article before, I would stop at the restaurant hehe
good will be for the next
What a pity Vanessa, next time we meet in person and have a drink?
