Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Amazing!

    "This was the best vacation ever and it was due to this wonderful property. We have stayed at many VRBO locations in the U.S. and Europe and this was the cleanest property for sure. Everything was perfect! Location, quiet neighborhood and walking distance to everything. We strongly recommend this VRBO. Carla was wonderful to work with! Thank you and we plan to return."

  • Service above and beyond

    "We looked around for the best place to stay in Puerto Adventurous and found Gene and Kathy's condo. The pictures looked great, reviews were very positive, it was available and at a very reasonable price. We were looking forward to our stay, but unfortunately, my husband needed to have surgery a few weeks before our planned vacation. I contacted Gene and he very graciously refunded 100% of our deposit immediately without any need for any future commitment. They went above and beyond and this reflects the type of service they provide to their customers. We look forward to a future stay at the condo and would recommend this condo to everyone."

  • Perfect for our get away!

    "We stayed in one of the upstairs suites for a quiet get away. The description of the room was perfect. We could lay in our bed and watch the sun rise in the morning over the ocean. The patio off the room was the perfect place to sit and look at the amazing view! The pool was the perfect place to cool off and we loved the little shaded area on the patio. Having access to walk on the beach was a major perk to this property! The property was well maintained with all of the needed supplies. The manager was sweet and helpful, answering all of our questions and finding information for us about a whale shark tour. We loved the location...close to town, but not too close. We also loved that it was within walking distance of our favorite restaurant (Mango Cafe)! I would highly recommend this place!"

  • Playa del Secreto

    "We really enjoyed our stay, the location is beautiful and the beach is quiet. The two bedroom villa was more than adequate for 4 adults and two children. Good location for family with small children who enjoy pool and beach. Keep in mind you really need a car for shopping and eating out. However, Puerto Morelos is only 9 km away and offers lots of choice in restaurants with reasonable prices. The villa is an ideal place if you want to relax, enjoy family time and do not mind to be a bit isolated. It is called Playa del Secreto after all."

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.
