  • Absolutely delicious!

    "In the midst of the chaos of the BPM Festival was this deliciously quiet and romantic villa. My boyfriend and I were in Playa for the festival and we couldn't have asked for more from this condo - amazing location, very clean, full kitchen, Wi-Fi, easy check in and out, and private rooftop with hot tub was the cherry on top. We were always happy to come back to the condo and already looking forward to our next visit!"

  • Victoria BC Canada

    "Truly a very fine experience. The children loved the super clean pool and the beach. I liked the large jugs of drinking water placed throughout the villa and the screens on bedrooms and the main lounge area but #1 were the lovely couple who fed us/shopped and kept the Villa very clean..they were grand. My only suggestion would be to upgrade the cooking utensils but a small issue I know. The smiles on all the faces were a pleasure to see. The spaces are large and easy for a multi generational group to enjoy."

  • Verbose About Our Vacation.

    "We cannot say enough about our stay at Casa De Colores. We had a hard time leaving, as Huego may have needed reinforcements to physically remove us from the home. We swam in the pool everyday. We searched for crabs, coral and fish in the back of the house, which bumps up against the ocean. We enjoyed being pampered by Zulma and Gabbi. We snorkeled, explored, and ate our way though the entire week. If you stay here, make sure you have Zulma make you dinner. We recommend the chicken mole. My six year old told me he wanted this meal every night. He also told us Mexico was in his heart. You know your vacation was amazing when you look at each other on the last day and everyone has a tear in their eye. Thank you for the vacation of a lifetime. We hope to see you next year and the year after that and the year after that and the year after that and the year after that."

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.
