ON THE HIGHWAY
From Cancun airport go south on Highway 307 though Playa del Carmen and just past Puerto Aventuras.
A little past the short Puerto Aventuras overpass there will be some roadwork that redirects southbound traffic to the around some highway construction for about half a kilometer.
As soon as the highway normalizes there is a Pemex gas station on the right. Glance at your odometer.
In a 1.5 kilometers you will see a red and white cell tower (pictured here) on the right. Depending on whether the jungle has been cut back you may see the yellow right-hand turn sign. You are now about 100 yards from the turn.
I can not stress this enough:
Start to slow down!
The right hand turn into Santa Teresita sneaks up on you VERY fast. In the center picture you see where the shoulder suddenly widens and there are stone pillars saying "Rancho Santa Teresita."
The turn can easily fly right past you if you have not slowed down.
NOTE: At night it will be difficult to see the cell tower, so you'll really have to navigate by odometer.
The "Rancho Santa Teresita" sign, however, will be illuminated.
ON THE BACK ROADS
After you have turned off the highway you'll pass between two stone pillars that say "Santa Teresita" and come to a gated guard booth.
Tell the guard you are a guest at Lot 41 ("Huespedes de lote cuarenta y uno"). The guards rarely speak any English.
NOTE: The guard may ask you to leave an ID in exchange for a parking pass on the first day. You WILL get your ID back when you get a XOC-Ha pass.
Past the booth the "main" road veers left, then turns right at the first intersection onto Las Palmas. You'll go through one intersection (Chachalaca) and make a left at the second (Iguana).
XOC-Ha is the second on the left, a high maroon-topped wall and a maroon, metal gate. The number 41 is on the wall to the left of the gate.
Ring the bell under the number and we'll be out to welcome you shortly.
OR You can simply bypass all of this, put "XOC-Ha" into Google Maps, and do what the computer lady tells you.
However, at the very end, looking for our gate, go a little further than Google wants to stop you. Look for the red gate and the number 41 that are the second on the left. For some reason it sometimes places people in front of our neighbor's house.
