Recent Quintana Roo reviews

  • Relaxing and Comfortable

    "This was our 2nd stay in an apartment in La Joya in Akumal. We really appreciate all the comfort and quiet of this condo. The pool, the beach, good restaurants nearby and especially Yal ku lagoon next to it. After a month of traveling in Mexico, we always end our stay by a few days in Akumal and apartments at La Joya are very nice with appreciable services (daily housekeeping) , wifi, tourist information, bicycle rental, etc."

  • Mi casa es Su casa!! = Priceless!!!!

    "Have you been angry because of a late flight? Or, arrival late because of immigration or any set-back? OKAY, Let me tell you....We arrived very early in the day and Guillermo and his staff were at the house preparing for our very early arrival... The fridge was full of cold beer,juice,fruit, eggs,butter,etc. and many condiments... If you need more groceries, The Cheduriil grocery store or XOXO is very close. Just so you know, We are spoiled timeshare owners..but let me tell you, waking up in your beach ware and spending the day grilling and making the house your home is priceless .We became fast friends with the "gate guys". they made sure we were safe at all times. My brother who was staying at a hotel near us during the same time we were renting the house, My brothers girlfriend, lost her passport and immigration form.. Guillermo gave us instructions on what to do and where to go.. He even came to the police station to meet us. Bearing in mind..this was not a occupant, just a friend of his renter, We have nothing but nice things to say about Guillermo.We are actually trying to rent from Guillermo in the next couple of weeks. If you want to feel secure in your rental and make friends for life.. Rent from Guillermo!"

  • A great week at El Castllo Maya

    "My family of 6 spent a very enjoyable week in December at El Castillo Maya. The house and property is exactly what the pictures on the web depicted. We enjoyed the pool area and the warm gulf breeze but the rooftop palapa was our favorite hideaway. We moved up a coffee maker and enjoyed seven glorious sunrises while sipping fresh coffee and enjoying breakfasts. The view of the island and gulf from the palapa is breathtaking. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining and living room area is roomy and comfortable. Carlos, the property manager was very friendly and spoke English very well. He was a great resource for finding the best restaurants, hangouts and things to do. Don’t miss the Soggy Peso! Taxi service was readily available only a half block away and was very reasonable. The Caribbean Quean in the uptown area was our favorite beach hangout offering free lounges, umbrellas with great beverage and food service. Thanks Bill and Kathy for a wonderful week at your beautiful island home."

  • excellent

    "The condo was exactly as advertised, if not better, it had all the amenities that you would need , the bed was large and very comfortable ,there was 2 TV sets with cable so plenty of English channels, the pool was just a few steps from the lounge and bedroom doors, a few more steps to the beach, which is amazing. the short walk into town is ok and apart from a few potholes was an easy walk. We got taxis to the bus stop and then an ADO or collectivo bus into playa or Cancun for 20 peso. Puerto Morelos is a wonderful friendly place with nice restaurants ,and a great beach and far away from the AI hotels, we loved our time here and will return soon, I would like to thank Derek and Alice for a wonderful time and a problem free experience ."

Quintana Roo Travel Tips

Quintana Roo has Perfect Beaches and Much More

The Mexican state of Quintana Roo is on the eastern part of Yucatán Peninsula. It is home to some of the best vacation areas in the country. Some visitors come seeking activity all day and dancing all night; others come for the tranquility of large beaches and warm seas. While the capital city of Quintana Roo is Chetumal, the state also includes Cancún, the islands of Cozumel, Isla Mujheres, and towns such as Bacalar, Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Playa del Carmen. Other places to visit are Puerto Juárez, Akumal, and Puerto Morelos. Remnants of the ancient Mayan civilization abound here, such as at Chaccbhoben, Coba, Kohunlich, Muyil, Tulum, Xel-Há, and Xcaret. And that is just a few! This is a large area, great for mixing relaxing on the beach with some water sports thrown in and day trips in an array of beautiful towns and ancient ruins.

Being geared to tourism, Quintana Roo is easy to explore and most people coming here take advantage of the many options to get around the area. Most choose to arrive via Cancún International Airport and many take a rental car option for maximum freedom to explore. Many choose Quintana Roo Mexico vacation rentals for the same reasons.

Beaches, Water Sports and Theme Parks Galore

Cancún, known as the Mexican Caribbean, sits on the Yucatán Channel and is a world-famous tourist location. Visitors here will enjoy some of the best beaches in the world with an exceptional amount of water sports, such as diving, swimming with dolphins and deep sea fishing. A short ferry ride takes visitors to the beautiful Isla Mujeres and one of the many attractions here is the incredible seafood! The island is a favorite for those who enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving on the many coral reefs. Another major attraction here is the facility for the rescue and breeding of sea turtles. Cancún has great shopping and a variety of theme parks, such as Xplor, Xcaret Eco Park and Xel-Ha.

For those who find the lure of exploration, the Riviera Maya will be a great experience. People come here for the archaeological sites, such as Coba and Tulum.

The town of Bacalar sits on a lagoon of the same name. This beautiful town dates from the 16th century and has a fascinating history of piracy. The 17th-century Fortress de San Felipe Bacalar is now a wonderful tourist attraction.

Those seeking quieter Quintana Roo Mexico resorts have many options to choose from. Puerto Morelos, with its mangrove swamp, or Akumal, meaning "place of the turtles" would make great options. There are many smaller resorts that are less crowded but with equally wonderful beaches and shopping. They are also within close proximity to larger towns for more lively activities.

Archaeological Sites to See

No visit to Quintana Roo Mexico condos is complete without exploring some of the incredible ancient sites in this region. Visitors will enjoy heading into the jungle to visit these sites. Bonampak is famous for its graphic murals of human sacrifice! Kohunlich, Dzibanche and Oxtankah are famous for the lush jungle, exotic birds and wildlife. Bring your bathing suit to Tulum, the "Walled City" where the beach is next to the site. Visitors can view the Fresco remnants before heading for a swim. Accessible by river via long boats is Yaxchilan. Deep in the Chiapas jungle, this site includes several Mayan ruins and is well worth a visit.

Make Your Vacation Perfect with the Perfect Accommodation

Visitors to Quintana Roo Mexico vacation rentals will find a huge variety of accommodation options available. Whether it is a spacious home in the heart of the city or a condo close to a quiet beach, you will find the perfect option. Rather than being bound to a room, these homes offer the space to relax and enjoy a welcoming environment. Homes are equipped with everything required to make a perfect vacation even better.
