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!
