  • great condo

    "Stayed at the Evan's condo for 10 days and absolutely loved it. There was great decor and it was very clean. The condo was well equipped, Terry has thought of everything you would need. The balcony and the view was spectacular. Terry was great to work with we are already talking about going back next year."

  • Villa Sol Haa is a gem!

    "We were a group of 13-family and friends (11 at the villa and 2 at nearby hotel who visited daily) celebrating our 25th Anniversary. I had booked the villa a year in advance and had all my many questions answered promptly by the owner. Renovations to the villa had been recently completed- expanded indoor living/dining/ entry area as well as a deck off the second floor front bedroom and a spacious, airy master suite with glass panel in bathroom so you can view the ocean while showering. The view from that 3rd floor bedroom was outstanding! The pool area and grounds were well mainitained and had plenty of chairs for lounging which we'd drag down on the beach each day. All in the group commented that they had never swam and snorkelled in such clear water. We also rented some stand up paddleboards and a kayak which proved to be popular. The location of the villa couldn't be any better- 20 minutes from airport, 15 from downtown San Miguel and only 15 min to entrance to Punta Sur/east coast road. We were able to walk up the road to the Money Bar for sunset happy hours and evening entertainement too! We rented cars so were able to enjoy a day at the east coast beach bars/clubs, a sunset cruise with Cozumel Sailing, exploring Punta Sur Eco Park in the south and great, very inexpensive meals in San Miguel at local, non- touristy restaurants Las Otates and El Fish. An a shout out to Chef Fernando who cooked us a Mexican meal at the villa on the night of our 25th- well worth it! This was one of the best trips we have ever had and could not have been happier with our choice of renting this villa."

  • Perfect Playa Home

    "My family and I stayed at Casa Blanca for one week. There were 2 couples 55+, 2 couples age 30s, a 4 and a 2 year old. The house had 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms. The upstairs was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 small children because of the daybed and trundle. Well stocked kitchen with appliances including grill. The pool and hottub were outstanding. Perfect size, warm water, shallow area for the children and always open. Location was perfect. The beach was less than 1 block away and more secluded in playacar than the downtown area. Downtown/5th avenue was a 10 min walk by road or beach. The property was clean and the staff were friendly and professional. The owner was great to work with as well with quick responses and friendly emails. I would strongly recommend this property and if we return to Playa we will rent it again."

  • Terrific March Break Family Vacation!!!

    "This was our first visit to Puerto Aventuras and Villa Del Mar and we enjoyed the condo tremendously! It is even nicer than the pictures suggest. Our family of 4 loved all of the space as it gave us plenty of room to stretch out. Everything you need in the kitchen to prepare a meal was there and I took advantage of the grocery delivery service from the property manager - very convenient. I also love the luxury of having a washer and dryer in the unit - a quick load of laundry every day meant that our suitcases coming home were full of clean clothes. The pool and grounds - wow! Two nice large pools and beautiful landscaping. We felt very safe here and it was great for our 2 kids (13 and 11) to go to the pool and the beach on their own. There are lots of chairs by the pool and the beach so no worry about not finding one even during busy season! The beach is gorgeous and there is a man made wall out front which provides a calm area in front of the complex for dipping. We ventured beyond the wall a bit and it still wasn't very deep but nice and sandy and refreshing. The people staying here were a mix of retirees and families - just a nice friendly atmosphere and quiet at night. The town itself is really cute - great to walk around and look into the shops. Our daughter did the dolphin swim and loved it. We didn't eat out too much but we did try Paparazzi Pizza (great!) and did go to Jesse's gelato for a treat a few times - which was a big hit. My husband and I ventured outside of the town gates for some tacos (Taco Paco is good but to be honest, there is a place right at the highway which is much better - just don't recall the name. 12 pesos for a taco and lots of locals eating there - a sure sign it is good!). There is also a nice big Chedruai grocery store just down the highway outside of the town gates (very walkable or a quick cab ride) to pick up more supplies. There is also a very popular fruit and vegetable market twice a week. Puerto Aventuras is in a nice central location to explore. We took the collectivo bus to Tulum to go see the ruins (go early - we did and we were so glad to be leaving when tour buses of tourists were arriving) and also to Playa for some souvenir shopping. Easy and very economical! There are tons of adventure parks in the immediate area - we didn't visit one this trip but plan to do that when we come back. The property manager was great to deal with - brought us water refills when needed and answered all of our"

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.
