Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Great View

    "Stayed here for a week in February and had a good time. With just two adults who have been here done that and were looking to get away from the city this was a nice place to go. The view here is great when you come from a prairie city waking up in the morning looking at the ocean in the morning. So the good, the bad and the ugly. The Good: The house is nice, clean around the house and inside. Having the SUV for a day was all that we needed, we went in on Sunday to Progreso and did our shopping for the week other then that we didn't really have a need for it. We use the collectivo which cost 11 pesos per person for the $4 it was worth it. Beds were great, water flows were good, tons of towels, the washing machine was nice also. The pool was nice, I thought it was a big pool and didn't heat up very well. Tons of little stores... so strange it was like everyone owned a store selling some sort of coke product. Places to eat, we only went out twice there but it was enough. TV was nice though we only watched movies at night when the day was done. Internet was nice to check out the world. Veronica was always there for a hand with concerns and extremely helpful. The Bad: The cook ware, frying pans were beat up, cutting boards are really dirty and worn out, a can opener that would have any restaurant closed down, and rusty squires. In the world we live in now they are not expensive and should be changed. No cell phone was given to us and we never asked as we thought this was stopped. The beaches are not like they are in the pictures, yes times change but walking on the beach was not like you would do anywhere else, sticks out of the water made you worried about getting something in the foot. As with the last review the bars and locks on the windows and doors were a pain and we didn't know other wise but to make sure we always locked up day and night. We didn't ask the owner though if it was needed at night. No window on the master bedroom door, this would have been nice to have left it open for a breeze to come through the room at night. The Ugly: Beaten down places everywhere, we would go for a walk and to see the area made you a bit depressed at times. Gang tags on the walls around town and in the pool (SUB13 or SUD13) this is the main reason we didn't like the place unlocked. Progreso, not impressed at all, over priced food and drinks, the bus tour told us more about the places to eat and drink then history of the area."

  • 28 Days at Casa Azul

    "Had a great stay at Casa Azul, this was our 2nd time staying, the pool is great to cool down while sitting in the sun and the kitchen was stocked well enough to cook meals if you like. For the price you can't beat it, very safe, and the best thing was you get to meet some really nice people. Thanks so much for your hospitality, Jim and Lori."

  • Great Rental

    "This is a rental that you should consider. From the beginning the owner was responsive to all inquiries. The staff in the condo were responsive to any requests for assistance. The apartment was clean and well cared for. It was very comfortable with all of the accessories one might need. It is best for those who have a car or if you don't mind walking because the condo is about 2 km from the main road. Located right on Half Moon bay, good snorkeling is a few steps from the front door and YA KUL inlet snorkeling park is just a 10 minute walk away."

  • Family Getaway

    "When they say right on the beach they arent kidding... just open any of the sliders and your steps away from the pool,sand and surf. Was a little worried about the noise from all the people and beach bars but once the doors were closed not a sound. Close proximity to all the shops of 5th avenue and the local food stores. As fun as 5th ave. can be with all the great shops and bars the locals can be a little pushy trying to get you into their shops. The unit was great (just a few issues) and the staff was amazing. The one real negative was the amount of SEAWEED on the beach. Would recommend this unit to anyone that asked...always something fun to do in Playa and that included having a 14 & 24 year old with us."

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.
