Yum Botic - Uvero

YUM BOTIC, which in Mayan means “thank you”, is a spacious three-bedroom home on a pristine private 213  foot beach in Uvero, Mahahual.

YUM BOTIC is not for everyone - If you don't need the nightlife, are looking for a place to get away from it all and be surrounded by palm trees and sea and a place to calm the soul - YUM BOTIC is for you.

YUM BOTIC is privately owned by S. Ackoff, an artist living in New York City. Her love of the sea is apparent in the fact that you can see the Caribbean from every angle of the house.
