For those who may want to mingle with people, Cancun and its discos is only a 30 minute drive away. Playa del Carmen is 20 minutes away to the south and the fishing village at Puerto Morelos is just a 10 minute-ride away. Each of these vibrant towns offers a variety of gourmet restaurants, cafes, shopping malls, and nightlife.

Playa del Secreto is a sanctuary where you can find a beautiful residential community where villa owners are committed to preserving the area as an exclusive and immaculate location. There is no public sewage nor fresh water system in Playa del Secreto. Villa Sol y Luna has installed an anaerobic septic tank that decomposes the organic matter from our sewage, which then goes to an oxidation pool where mangrove plants feed on the high nutrient content found in the water. This water is then aerated with a fountain to become odorless and then is used to irrigate the landscaping. This is a completely safe and environmentally-friendly way of reutilizing our sewage water. Flushing toilet paper, feminine products or any objects down the toilet would plug our anaerobic tank. The use of chemicals like bleach would kill the bacteria that decompose the organic matter. There are trash bins with lids for the disposal of toilet paper and feminine towels in every bathroom in the villa. It is a small effort we request from our guests to conserve the natural beauty of the place and the pristine waters of the ocean. Nearby activities include deep sea fishing, cave diving, Mayan ruins, jungle and canopy tours and horseback riding. Sol Y Luna is a unique oasis that offers seclusion in a postcard perfect tropical ocean setting.
