5:28 condo description

Mi Casa es su Casa! This lovely home away from home receives regular refurbishing. If your vacation plans include staying near the fine sandy beaches of the Mexican Caribbean this is the place for you. Playa del Carmen’s best beaches are just out the front door!

This residence is one of twelve units in the Italian designed “La Coccinella” complex. Look out from the living room into the lush garden courtyard and try to decide if you want a refreshing dip in the pool or head down to Mamita’s or others. If you choose a beach club, fifty pesos (approx.$5.usd) will provide you with a chaise, a shady palapa and prompt, friendly service. Enjoy the near-by turquoise waters of ‘El Caribe’.


La Coccinella is nestled in what locals refer to as Quinta Nueva or ‘new 5th Avenue’. Just off of Avenida 5th at Calle 28th you will be staying in one of the most tastefully built areas of this popular Yucatan destination.


Since the condo is situated around the corner from restaurants, shops, Internet cafes, beach clubs and more - everything you need is within walking distance.

Use the privacy and convenience of this lovingly furnished retreat as a cool sanctuary between excursions and outings. Relax and enjoy refreshments on your own secluded patio. Or kick back and enjoy a DVD before you set off for your next adventure.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind destination. Playa (as referred to by locals) was once a tiny fishing village. Fortunately, it developed into a quaint paradise, shying away from high rise development. It has grown into a beautifully designed ‘walking friendly’ beach town.
Besides Spanish and English you will hear languages from around the world. The international mix of Playa locals, business owners and tourists enhances its’ uniqueness.


Fly into Cancun International Airport and take a car, bus, taxi or shuttle 45 minutes south to Playa del Carmen.
