Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Such an awesome place and location

    "This was my first trip to Cozumel and my first time booking through VRBO. When we arrived (myself, husband and two friends), we were all pleased with the Condo, grounds and location. The condo is very well maintained, comfortable, up to date and had everything we needed including beach towels. It is walking distance to everything. The beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed (pans, toaster, coffee pot etc) and having a pool to relax by was the best. I would definitely recommend this condo for anyone wanting to visit Cozumel. Oh and Cynthia is very professional, friendly and responsive :)"

  • 3rd Time's A Charm!! So Were The Other 2, By The Way!!

    "Just spent a relaxing week at the Sandcastle condo, my 3rd stay there over the years. I keep returning because the place just cannot be beat. The Elements are very well maintained & constantly being upgraded. They added a second outdoor jacuzzi since my last stay. The location is perfect for my taste. Close to downtown PDC (a short walk or a 5 minute taxi ride), but far enough away to be quiet & tranquil. The unit itself has to die for views & is clean & well appointed. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves...very relaxing!! We had massages at the private beach club, took hikes & swam in the pool & ocean. I enjoy staying at condos because there is plenty of room & you have your own kitchen. I highly recommend The Sandcastle!!"

  • Beautiful

    "We spent 7 nights at the condo. Perfect weather and great location. Perry is very easy to work with. We enjoyed both pools and the beach. The marina area has plenty of restaurants and shops. People living/staying at Chac Hal Al were very friendly and helpful. We used the collectivo, about a 10 minute walk, for transportation to attractions, very inexpensive and easy. We are looking forward to returning!"

  • Casa Las Garzas

    "It was a great place, as promised. Large, comfortable, fine pool. wonderful maid service and driver. It had much, and good restaurants in the Puerto Aventuras compound. Excellent kitchen facilities. More than adequate shopping across the highway at Chedraui mega store. Good bus service to Playa del Carmen. Owners were totally helpful! Perfect place for a large group."

Yucatan, Mayan Riviera Travel Tips

Mayan Resorts Along the Yucatan Peninsula

On your next trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, consider traveling to Mayan resorts. The Mayan Riviera in Mexico is one of the more fascinating destination spots in the world. You have tropical beaches, ancient ruins, and a myriad of marine and wildlife, all steps away from Yucatan vacation rentals. The Mayan Riviera is more than one city; in fact, it is about 11 cities. Popular destinations for Yucatan villas include but are not limited to Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Akumal, Tulum, Puerto Aventuras, Puerto Morelos, and Xpu-Ha.

Forested Scenery near Yucatan Vacation Rentals

As you drive along route 307 to reach Yucatan vacation rentals, you will discover the land is flat and the scenery is akin to a flat forested region much like Canada or Europe. Interspersed along the highway are boulder-laden cliffs that will lead you down to clean, white sandy beaches. Once you arrive at Yucatan villas, you are able to sit on a private beach all day watching the waves roll in or playing in the surf. Playa del Carmen is the most popular Mayan Riviera destination where plenty of Mayan resorts await.

Yucatan Villas by Fifth Avenue

If you elect to stay in Playa del Carmen rather than other Mayan Riviera destinations, you can walk down Fifth Avenue on the local strip and pet wild lions, play with boa constrictors, or watch Maruichi bands. Many of the Yucatan villas are situated on the strip to provide you the most active nightlife and access to the beautiful beach. Cruises dock close to the strip, filling up the town with new faces each Tuesday and Thursday. Because so many cruise ships dock there, you'll find many jewelry stores, arts and crafts stores, and other retail shops that offer wonderful deals.

Mayan Resorts Provide Whale Shark Sightings

Water sports are the most attractive attractions in the Mayan Riviera. From Mayan resorts, you can head out to sea on a deep sea fishing tour or scuba dive boat. If you truly want a diving experience you will never forget, make sure the dive boat is heading to the known locations where the whale sharks hang out. Whale sharks can be very elusive creatures but dive boats in the Mayan Riviera have managed to find areas where they tend to hang out. At the end of your day with water sports, it may be time to head back to your Yucatan vacation rentals for a home-cooked Mexican meal.
