  • Girls Get-Away

    "It was the PERFECT setting for a fun-filled girl's vacation. It is a gorgeous setting and wonderful location. We enjoyed sunsets, beach walks, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and floating in the pool, all without the need of hopping in a car. It is a short ride to town for great shopping, food, and entertainment. You just walk to the front of the property and taxis are waiting to take you to town. The house is beautiful, with all of the special touches of home. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, if you so desire. There was plenty of room for 9 women to enjoy themselves. My favorites were the screened porch, the private pool, and the filtered water throughout the house. (It was safe to drink all water out of the tap) I would HIGHLY reccomend this beautiful home and destination for a great vacation spot. You need to experience La Ballena!"

  • Awesome place!

    "Spacious and charming, the pictures can only hint at what a nice place it is. Spotlessly clean; nicely furnished with everything we could have wanted. All of the furniture is much nicer quality than usually seen in rental places; high quality beds & linens, hammocks are also provided if you prefer. The kitchen is also very well equipped, or you can walk a few blocks to a selection of restaurants The caretaker lives on property (in a separate house), and was attentive & helpful without being intrusive. All in all, a wonderful place to spend some time at the beach."

  • Meridian condo

    "Our stay at the Meridian condo was exactly as advertised in the listing and photos. There was even a large blue umbrella for the beach which came in handy, as there was not much shade by the beach! The owner was very helpful answering our questions and concerns. It was ideally located 2 blocks from the beach and 2 blocks from 5th Avenue. You could walk to many shops and restaurants, yet it was very quiet. The management kept the complex in perfect condition, including the rooftop pool."

  • Our sweet honeymoon haven

    "We had a good travel to Holbox. The driver you recommended was very sweet. Thank you. So was the fisherman and his wife. They both took us on the from you recommended trip to isla paradis and the bird island and the waterhole ... and we were fishing. And we fell in love with cerviche, the traditional fishdish. In 3 weeks we will give a party for our friends here at home, who helped so much to make our wedding happening, where we will serve cerviche ... as good as we will be able to make it :). And we enjoyed the quietness of Holbox in the shoulder season sooo much. One night we slept on the beach at the western end of the island. With full moon and only nature to accompany us. And a golf cart taxi to pick us up the next day. The fish in the freezer was delicious. Cooked on the fire in the barbecue outside. I have been missing, drinking coconuts for years. So we have been enjoying drinking some of the coconuts from the palms in the backyard :) We enjoyed seeing the fisherman landing their catch on the beach and we could by fish of them as well. So beautiful is the casa de los Angeles. It reminds me soo much of Hundertwasser houses. Enjoyable where the lack of straight lines, the magnitude of colours and artful creation of the place. So we had a wonderful honeymoon in your house and would like to thank you soooooo .. ooo much for renting your house. We missed nothing and had love and fun at our side at all times. Thank you truly for a blessed time in Holbox, Lyn and Simon"

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.
