  • Perfect!

    "My family has been visiting Akumal for a few years, but this was the first time that we rented from Kassie. The location is perfect, and the unit is lovely. The staff were accommodating, friendly and helpful. The only issue that we had is the unusual amount of seaweed that is being washed onto the beach this year, which makes getting in and out of the sea a little more difficult than usual but that is hardly something that can be helped. Also, thanks to Kassie's recommendation, we visited Coba this year, which is far far nicer and less crowded than the ruins at Tulum. Thank you Kassie for a wonderful stay!"

  • Great House - Everything we needed!

    "We stayed for 5 nights and the house was perfect for us. We brought our two children (4 and 6) and our au pair and there was plenty of room for everyone and the pool out back was perfect. There was a great shallow zone, well partitioned off from the deeper section, which was perfect for us. The house and grounds were very well maintained and the cleaning staff was very thorough and friendly. The kitchen has far more than we expected, which was great for us as we cooked in most of our meals. Location is about a 10-15 minute walk to the Reef club, where we had access to larger pool/beach, which was easy and a very short 5 minute walk to shopping/ferry in playa del carmen. Perfect location, safe area, and all around a great house rental! Thanks for a great trip!"

  • Fantastic stay! Great location and friendly staff

    "Came in January for a trip with my close friends. Booking with Sheryl was very easy and she always responded promptly. She even had a welcome card with a bottle of wine for us waiting in our room.(nice touch) Aldea thai was the perfect place to stay not only is the location perfect (right in the heart of town) the staff was very friendly and spoke very fluent English. It's nice that it's a condo but has all the amenities of a hotel. The whole feel of the place is very tranquil with all the thai accents. The pool was lovely and very relaxing (beach was A lot busier and louder) As far as the condo it self I was surprised at how big it was. The pictures don't do it justice. There was lots of room and the layout was perfect. Can't beat that ocean view either. I not only would recommend this place to my friends I will return next year because it really was a wonderful trip! There are many options to book at aldea Thai but after my experience booking with Sheryl I will only book with her in the future for my next stay in playa del Carmen. Thanks again!"

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.
