  • Excellent value on the beach

    "My wife and I stayed at Casa Palmeras in July with two other couples, and we all had a blast! The house really over delivered for the price. The pictures really don't do it justice. It was thoughtfully appointed and delivered on everything that it said it did. It was larger than we expected from its pictures and really quite beautiful. The pool was an excellent respite, but we found that we spent most of our time on the beach and in the water of Soliman Bay. Even though there are houses on both sides, it still feels rather secluded. The private beach was amazing and the water of Soliman Bay was just perfect. The bedrooms were all very large, and the on-suites were ideal for three couples. Maria and Francisco were attentive, but not overly present. They did a great job of cleaning the house each day and making sure we had whatever we needed, even helping us light the barbeque and loaning us a machete for cutting open coconuts. We scheduled dinner with Maria the first night we got there, and were really glad that we had done so after a full day of travel. The food was delicious and provided leftovers for the next day's lunch. Located 11km north of Tulum, Casa Palmeras was an excellent base for our adventures, and was a joy to return to each evening. We were all sad to leave after seven days, and all agreed that we'd rather just move there than travel home. We had an amazing trip to the area and would absolutely stay at Casa Palmeras again. A few notes: 1) Neither Maria nor Francisco speak English. We were able to get by with a combination of rudimentary Spanglish and Google Translate (thank you wifi!!) 2) All bedrooms are upstairs. I wouldn't recommend this property to people with disabilities or older travelers. 3) The trick to lighting the barbeque is to shave a decent amount of candle wax on the coals. Combined with an interior base of paper, it'll light right up. (Thank you Francisco!!) 4) You will absolutely want a car if staying here. We had zero issues with driving or police. Pay attention to speed limits and be careful of the speed bumps. Don't drive intoxicated, and you'll be just fine. 5) Standard gratuity for staff is 10% of rental fee. Factor this into your budget. 6) Due to the constant humidity, depending on where in the country you live, your clothes may weigh much more upon your return than when you arrive."

  • Superb Choice for Cozumel

    "We did a lot of searching before deciding on this unit and feel we could not have made a better choice. The unit is lovely and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The balcony is large with a fantastic view....the outdoor furniture is attractive and comfortable, including a table and chairs where we ate breakfast every morning and dinner several evenings. Towels were big and soft, nice bathrobes are furnished, bed was very comfortable, lots of closet and drawer space, washer & dryer in unit, shower was big and water pressure was good, Wifi was reliable and fast, and having the daily maid service was wonderful. The complex is beautiful and everyone was so friendly and helpful and the landscapers and maintenance guys work everyday except Sunday to keep everything looking so nice. There was also a local gentleman, Luis, that we could call with any problem and he would take care of it immediately. The private beach area was beautiful with lots of palapas and lounge chairs and the two pools were quite nice, too, with lots of loungers and a shaded area at each one. Right next door was a pier where snorkel and dive boats will come and pick you up and there is a very good dive operation right there called The Dive House. We loved the location because it was so quiet and away from the craziness of town, especially when the cruise ships are in, which seemed to be almost every day. With a car, you are only a quick and easy 10 minute drive to town and then you can use the car to visit all the lovely, remote beach areas on the south and east sides of the islands. Coconuts on the east side was one of our favorites for lunch...right on a bluff overlooking crashing waves....and the food was great. There are two large grocery stores in town...Mega and Chedraui...we alternated between them and they both have a lot of prepared items for take away which made cooking at the condo even easier. The kitchen in the unit was exceptionally well equipped and we could really cook anything when we wanted to cook. Cozumel has so many good restaurants. I would suggest you look at TripAdvisor for restaurants in Cozumel to get some ideas. We would recommend Coconuts, Guidos and Kondesa."

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "Luna Encantada was easily one of the best family vacation sites we've had, truly a home away from home. We were greeted at the secure gate, and taken immediately to our 3 bedroom condo. The on-site help was always prompt and available. Jose was so helpful; he even brought a fan for our bedroom since we were used to having the "white noise." A ceiling leak from the upper floor was immediately addressed. Although just across from a bar/grill, the noise never bothered us at night. (A few pesky footfalls from above, but that can happen at any resort/hotel.) The infinity pool, grounds and beach were spotless. Gabriel at the beach was so nice and helpful with umbrellas, drinks and chairs. (One could walk a long ways on the beautiful white sand beach.) We made use of the laundry daily, as well as the kitchen. Less than a block away, was Fifth Avenue, where we enjoyed many shops, restaurants, and miscellaneous businesses. After a few days, we even let our kids go without us to shop. The view from our patio was spectacular. Many hours were spent there just listening to the waves and enjoying the view. Also a perfect spot to watch the pool, if our kids were swimming. (*Teens, not toddlers.) There were several excursion kiosks right on the beach near our condo. Our family did snorkeling, para-sailing and jet-skiing. Also, massage and yoga right next door. (Our extended family who joined us, really enjoyed deep sea fishing with Ivan, which was booked online before our trip. (Highly recommend Fishing with Ivan, which was a short cab ride away.) Yaxche Mayan Restaurant was very good, and just a couple blocks from us on 5th was Cafe de la Mer, an upstairs restaurant which was fabulous. Housekeeping came as much or as little as you wanted, and they were great! I cannot wait to go back here. Loved it so much more than any hotel or resort, and I have been to quite a few. The mega (groceries) and Walmart were walking distance, (maybe a mile) but a cab is needed to carry stuff back. LOVED this place the best out of all my 10 or so, trips to Cancun/Playa del Carmen. Can't wait to return!"

  • A little slice of paradise

    "Casa Aquamarine is the best. My wife and I had an incredible time at this beautiful condo on the beach. The bay is full of sea life and Tulum is a mere 10 km down the road. We wanted a place to relax and get away from it all. And our wish came true. The caretakers, Salvador, Manuela and Rosa, are simply the best. They take great care of the condos and the guests and are one of the reasons we plan on returning next year. If you are looking for a place where there is no hustle and bustle, and you can enjoy peace and quiet with a view to die for, then Casa Aquamarine is for you. The entire Soliman Bay is a nice respite from the crowds that you can run into at other locations, and with no fishing allowed on the reef you can enjoy some incredible coral and sea life with no boats to bother you. Lorena, the owner, took great care in our reservations and letting us know what to expect on our first (and hopefully not our last!) visit to Casa Aquamarine. Simply put, we cannot recommend Casa Aquamarine enough to those who want a quiet, enjoyable vacation."

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.
