Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Great Family Getaway

    "We booked this house as it seemed child friendly as we have 3 young ones under 5, and it didn't disappoint! We played in the pool in the backyard quite a lot, boys loved the trampoline and the play structure and being able to go out to the backyard and have your own private beach is a huge bonus. We took advantage of the cook Eduardo the owner arranged for us, and he cooked for us every night making excellent authentic Mexican food that we all enjoyed. We all had a great time during our 1 month stay."

  • Fantastic house in perfect location

    "Villa Sol y Luna was much larger than the pictures show which was a wonderful surprise when we go to the home. The home was a bit musty when we first entered, but after opening windows and turning on the AC for a bit it was just fine. The house was built in 1998 and the furnishings, etc. are from that era. If you are looking for an ultra modern house this is not for you. My girlfriends and I found the house to be more than accommodating with 3 separate bathrooms and showers made getting ready for an evening meal very easy after a long day at the beach. The kitchen worked fine for the few meals we made at the house. Again, this is not a home for huge dinner parties, but it worked just fine for making sandwiches and breakfast meals. We didn't use the pool as much as a family with kids may have, but it was nice to take a quick dip and was a nice feature in the backyard. I would highly recommend this property. The owners were very quick with responses and it is a great value in the safe community of Playacar. If you are looking to branch away from the resorts, this home is for you."

  • Bounty-Beauty-Full

    "Super! Superb! Superlative! This place offers more than you can imagine! It is a place where you can disconnect from the daily stress. This place smiles at you, even if it thundering outside. It is a spacious house with everything you need. A few remarkable art pieces will make your thoughts wonder. The kitchen is equipped very well and Emmanuel is an asset. He is multi-talented. He will take care of any needs and he is a great cook. Our family enjoyed his meals very much. This house has no secrets, all is open to the senses. It is there for you to discover the mysteries that lay around: fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, stargazing are just a few highlights. You will be grateful if you brought your watershoes; the bountiful sea life starts from the shore and you might want to avoid stepping directly unto the seashells or rocks. The water is incredible: clear, calm, warm. A place where your heart will open, feel the joy and sing!"

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.
