Introducing Casa El Paraiso: A Nature Lover’s Paradise

Step into a world where African and Mayan architecture merge seamlessly with lush botanical beauty. Welcome to Casa El Paraiso, a stunning property that beckons nature lovers and those seeking an enchanting sanctuary in Merida. Built in 1988, this remarkable estate spans approximately 2,440 square meters and embodies a true labor of love.

As you explore Casa El Paraiso, you’ll discover a harmonious blend of three modular buildings, each designed to offer comfort and serenity. The main house boasts two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a well-appointed kitchen, a spacious living room, and a delightful dining area. Additionally, two fully-furnished bungalows feature a bedroom, a convenient kitchenette, and a private bathroom, providing ideal accommodations for guests or extended family.

Nestled amidst this extraordinary property lies a separate bungalow, housing an expansive library, a peaceful bedroom, a luxurious full bathroom, a storage room, and a charming indoor patio. It’s a space that truly invites you to unwind and escape into your own private retreat.

However, the true allure of Casa El Paraiso lies in its awe-inspiring botanical garden—a testament to the owners’ tireless dedication over three decades. Through intensive work and a commitment to regeneration, they have transformed the harsh soil conditions of Yucatan into a flourishing oasis. Immerse yourself in a symphony of over 300 plant species, including both indigenous and exotic palm trees, vibrant orchids, and a captivating collection of indigenous and threatened Mayan fruit trees.

This remarkable botanical haven has become a retreat for wildlife as well. Over 50 different species of birds, wild stingless bees, and other enchanting creatures are drawn to this sanctuary of biodiversity. Step outside your door and indulge in the sights and sounds of nature unfolding before your eyes.

Casa El Paraiso’s significance transcends its borders, having captured the attention of the world. It has been featured in multiple documentary films, newspaper and magazine articles, and even hosted esteemed personalities. Notably, the Discovery Channel documented its splendor in 1994, with Olivia Newton-John as the host, while the German TV network ZDF highlighted its beauty in 1995.

As a testament to its rich history, a beautiful book chronicling the journey of Casa El Paraiso, its magnificent garden, and the pioneering autochthonous Arboretum in Cholul’s main Plaza was published in March 2023. This captivating piece of literature serves as a testament to the deep-rooted passion and dedication of the owners.

Casa El Paraiso offers more than just a home—it presents an immersive experience, a testament to the beauty of nature intertwined with architectural marvels. This is a rare opportunity to own a truly remarkable property that seamlessly blends exotic allure, environmental conservation, and a vibrant living space.
