                          About: My husband and I have been going to Playa since 1993, it is our favorite beach in the world. We have a couple of condos we rent out in El Taj Ocean, Porto Playa, Maya Villa, Villas Sacbe and El Taj Beach. All are either on the beach or within 100 steps from the beach in the Premier Zone. All are within 1 - 1.5 blocks from 5th Avenue, the heart of Playa. You can see pictures and reviews from our guests at my web site. Whenever we are offered a discount, I pass that discount on to our guests.

                          Why El Taj Oceanfront:
                          We have been lucky enough to travel to beaches in all parts of the world: Australia, the French Riviera, the Italian Riviera, California, Florida, Indonesia, etc. We love Playa because it is so beautiful and so international. Tourists come from Europe, South America, Russia, Canada, as well as the US.
