              This condo has the best of both worlds. It is only a few minutes to the beach and a few minutes to downtown. You are only minutes from the world famous 5th Avenue that includes amazing restaurants, bars and shopping. You can lay low and relax by the pool and cenote or spend the day at the beach. If you are more adventurous there are many tours and activities that are no more than a 30 minute drive from the condo. Drive to Akumel and go snorkeling if you want to see stingrays and massive sea turtles, take the ferry to Cozumel and scuba/snorkel the 2nd largest reef in the world, rent a car or buggy and drive to Tulum, parasail or rent jetski's on the beach in Playacar, take the kids to wild water kingdom in Cancun or go shopping at their duty free mall, go deep sea fishing, swim with whale sharks in Puerto Morales (near Cancun), take a taxi or drive to Explore that has two zip line courses with some runs landing in the water (very cool), atv's that drive through the jungle and cenotes, swim through underwater cenotes (caves), or visit Xel-Cha and go snorkeling or swim with the Dolphins. For a complete list of activities or if you want some suggestions please feel free and call as we know the area extremely well.

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: We are a family from Canada who has been delighting in the beaches of Playa Del Carmen for more than 15 years. We especially appreciate the idea of having peaceful solitude at Condo MAR, while being able to enjoy the local flavors, music and hospitality that Playa del Carmen offers just blocks from the condo.

              Why Private Homes:
              Condo MAR H20 is easy to get to -- fly into Cancun Airport and drive south 35 miles. We always feel safe in Playa del Carmen. We find that PDC offers any kind of vacation you choose -- from active diving and sight-seeing, to long, lazy days at the beach. The people are friendly and helpful -- even if you don't speak Spanish, you won't have a problem with communication.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Condo MAR was built in 2005, and is clean and modern. The 15 ft. balcony doors keep the condo light and sunny. Sun-blocker shades in both bedrooms compliment sleepy mornings and afternoon siestas. The central air is zoned for each bedroom, and the bedrooms are separated by the living room / dining room for privacy. Perhaps the best feature: is Esperanza, our property manager in PDC. She will take very good care of you!
