  • For A Good Time Call Gianni and Sue....

    "There are so many good things to say about Villa Gordon that I do not know where to start. Everyday was better than the day before. We were eight in number (four couples) and we all felt like family the minute we arrived. Gianni had purchased American beer for us before our arrival and Sue had two bowls of guacamole with chips waiting for us in the fridge. We ate almost every meal at the villa. Gianni, Sue or Sue's mother prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner for us on the days we were eating at the villa. We were never disappointed in a meal. Gianni makes the most wonderful pasta dishes. Sue would cook our breakfast made to order and always blend up a special drink to accompany our food. If you choose to cook for yourself there is no shortage of cookware or dishes. The kitchen hosts two refrigerators, two gas stoves and one oven. The villa is very homey and decorated with bright cheery colors. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very roomy and the hot water is plentiful. The patio is very secluded which was a priority for us. The beach is beautiful. We loved the tidal pools directly off of the patio. It is too rocky to swim around the tidal pools but you can walk a bit up the beach and find a good spot. The Tankah Tres/Casa Cenote area is somewhat secluded and very safe. The restaurant at Casa Cenote has good food and a good view. I have traveled the world over and not found such gracious hosts as Gianni and Sue. They took care of our every desire with a smile. We rented a car but going into Tulum in a taxi was quite easy. We will definitely return as soon as we can. Danny & Pam Mike & Leta Dave & Susan Richard & Jean"

  • AWESOME!!!!!

    "Arena Blanca is one of the best kept secrets in Playa del Carmen. It is centrally located less than minutes from 5th Avenue, but in a fairly quiet side of town. The condo is beautifully decorated with native art and accents and is extremely private and comfortable and within walking distance of everything. The pool and the surrounding grounds are gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The staff are warm and accommodating. This is an extremely quiet complex with only eleven units total. The guests at this complex consisted of several families with children and alot of adult couples. Dealing with Shari and Lisa throughout the entire process was a delight. They were great at providing whatever information we needed and at addressing any personal issues we had immediately. They supplied us with a handy guide to restaurants and local places to see and things to do which proved to be most helpful. We wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else but Arena Blanca on our next trip to Playa del Carmen. Thank you Shari and Lisa for sharing this magical place with us. We loved it!"

  • Simply the best!!

    "We rented Villa Mango for a 2 week period from December 27, 2014 to January 10, 2015. The first week was shared with my brother and his family - we were a total of 8. Never did we feel crowded - everyone had their own space. The house is just so big and well laid out. The second week was just our family of 3. My husband and I had seen this home on previous vacations in the area and marveled at its beauty. Never did we imagine it would one day be our home for 2 weeks, and what a fabulous home it was!! Very quiet, safe area within 20 minutes walk from the village either by the beach or road - we did not have a car. The home is exquisite and everything has been thought of. All the appliances and drawers are very well labelled making it easy to use everything. We only ate at restaurants about 5 times during the two-week period -it was just too comfortable at home. Lucy was a joy to deal with as we prepared for our trip. Angie and Ale were so helpful, both in preparation for our trip and during our stay. We truly appreciated all their help and especially doing our grocery and stocking the fridge for a small fee. Miriam does a great job keeping the place clean. Would love to go back some day and have no hesitation recommending to anyone wanting to get away from the resort life - this is so much better!! Some of the restaurants we enjoyed include El Merkadito, El Sabor de Mexico, El Pesquero. Fish at the co-op is out of this world. Paco at the main dock for snorkeling runs a good business. Violeta's massage tent on the beach is so worth it - I went 3 times during the 2 weeks. This is such a beautiful, laid back village with everything you need to make your stay a real vacation. Our best holiday ever!! Thanks again Lucy for sharing your beautiful home Nicole and Lucien"

  • Secluded, beautiful home

    "Overall we really loved this house and how secluded it was from the tourists of Mexico. Others have commented a lot on how beautiful the beach and house are and we all felt the same way. The house is probably most comfortable with 6 or less (we were 5). It is a beautifully designed building with large open bedrooms and great outdoor spaces. The palapa, hammocks and upstairs deck were our favorite hangout spots. The caretaker, Avila, that lives on the property was sweet and friendly (speaking spanish was a must) and even brought us coconuts to sip on the beach. Susan was very thoughtful and hooked us up with local organic eggs (from KM 5 farm stand discussed in the rental packet). She also also gave good recommendations on where to buy food, which sites to visit and roughly how long it takes to get places which proved useful. Because of the reef, the ocean had almost no chop, was extremely shallow out to 100 ft and would be safe for swimmers of any age. This also means that there was a lot of seaweed that naturally washes up and the water can be murkier in some spots. We had a little problem with the solar batteries but the caretakers and Susan handled the problem so we were never really without power. Mahahual is a cute town with a board walk and is really only busy when the cruise boats are in town. This location is perfect if you want to get out of tourist locations but be prepared for longer drives to site-seeing destinations. We wanted a place to relax for the week (ex: one of us was studying for the bar) and this quiet location was perfect for the seclusion we wanted."

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.
