  • Perfect Week of Sun!

    "We spent a week at condo and loved it! It was my husband and I and our 2 teenage daughters. The condo had everything we needed, with everything working and in good condition. We absolutely loved the vicinity to the beach and morning coffee looking out at the ocean. Because my daughter had a knee injury 2 weeks before our planned vacation, she was in a knee brace and crutches. This limited our excursions, so we spent a lot of time at the condo, pools and beach. Not only was the property clean and tidy, but we felt completely safe and well taken care of. I did not hear any negative reports from any of the other guests, who were staying at various condos throughout the property. There were families with babies, teenagers and retired couples. A mixture of very nice people. We did not rent a car except for one day that we rented a jeep and drove around the island. We have always used just taxis for Mexico, but when we return, we will definitely rent a car for the entire stay. The taxi cab generally ran about $15USD each way between town and the condo. And about $25USD each way to the airport and back. The driving seemed more reasonable on the island than other places we've been in Mexico and I think we would be perfectly comfortable driving there. There are two big grocery stores in town and it was easy to find food and items that we were familiar with. The grocery store gives you the option of paying with USD, Pesos or credit card. Down the beach is Carlos and Charlies and a couple other Beach Clubs. Our first visit was on a Sunday (no cruise ships) and it was rather quiet and we had excellent service. When we returned later in the week, when cruise ships were in town and during spring break, it was quite different! It was fun to people-watch but a bit crazy too! It was a fun atmosphere, good lunch and just steps from condo. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better location. We prefer quiet to crowds and we were not disappointed. The condo was lovely and the beach was stunning! Again, when we stay again, we will rent a car to add to the flexibility and hopefully no crutches!! Thank you Fulvio for all your help!!"

  • Great condo - Perfect Location!

    "Our family stayed at #7010 for 2 weeks in Feb/early March this year. We could not have been more pleased and delighted with our stay! The complex is gorgeous and meticulously cared for, and the condo itself was in excellent condition and had everything promised. The pool/beach were about a 20 second walk away, which was great! Both toilets broke separately during our stay but they were each fixed within 24 hours. Maid service is every other day; they provide new towels, sheets, and have the empty 5 gal water jugs replaced. The front desk concierge was wonderful and extremely helpful! We've never felt safer in any other property - there are security guards 24/7 and wristbands to make sure the pool area stays private. The pool has cheap, yummy food, fun bartenders, and $3 happy hour drinks every day. The start of 5th Ave (restaurant/dining/shopping district) is a quick walk away The Ado bus station is also about a 5 min walk away for $12 trips to and from the Cancun Airport.Our family stayed at Xaman Ha 7010 for 2 weeks in Feb/early March this year.

Our expectations were greatly exceeded with the beauty, comfort, and accessibility of this condo and complex - we can't wait to come back!"

  • Everything You Need

    "Casa Kaana has everything one needs for a relaxing, carefree holiday in Mexico. Large rooms and nice and airy. The focus of our stay was the outdoor area by the pool. As mentioned by others the pool area is private, easily accessible, clean and relaxing to loll around. BBQ was great. The location of the house, one row from the beach, is a very short distance to walk. The property manager, Joan, was excellent. Extremely helpful in not only the workings of the house but in informing us to happenings in the area. Wifi and use of the house cellphone were a bonus. This was our fourth stay in this area of Mexico and Casa Kaana was easily the best home we have stayed in.......everything was as advertised and all appliances worked."

  • Affordable, Safe, Clean, Great Management, and EXCELENT pre trip communication.

    "Can't say enough positive about this Casita. I actually think the description is humble. The location is perfect. Management was great as was the security. The owner had great communication prior to the trip which made for stress free travel. I look forward to staying here again. I have traveled to this area over 70 times and can say with confidence a better deal can not be found in Akumal."

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.
