Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Perfect for a friends weekend

    "We needed a quiet place to gather at the end of a long week in Mexico, and Villa Arricefe made for an excellent last few days. The large open kitchen is perfect for cooking and gathering for meals. The bedrooms are big and comfy. And the pool area just the right amount of space for 10 of us to enjoy time together. A huge thank you to the owners for being so easy & nice to work with. Enjoy!"

  • Awesome home

    "Our own private get away. 3 bed,3 bath and pool. A 20 min. walk to town which isn't bad really. Or stop a cab and for less then $5.00 us. you can go anywhere you want. The house is outstanding. Very clean it felt like home. We loved it."

  • Michiganders!

    "Very clean, safe, quiet villas located in the Mexican neighborhoods of SanMiguell. A true cultural experience! Fantastic food prepared by the locals. We caught fish and the restaurant down the street cooked them for us! The Best! Need a rental car or taxi though to go to the beaches:(. Great weather ... 81* the 3 weeks we were there!"

  • It grew on me...

    "I shared Casa Amarilla with my husband and his family. I will admit that for the first few days I was a little skeptical of our choice but by the end of our stay (just over a week) I didn't want to leave! The town is absolutely charming and everyone was very nice and accommodating for us, language barrier and all. We tried nearly every restaurant in town, if not all, and enjoyed each one. We rented two cars so were out and about every day, mostly cenotes, ruins, and beaches. We did a Selva Maya tour one afternoon - totally awesome! The guys were a lot of fun and were all knowledgeable and fun to talk to. One thing I would like to mention about the house is to watch your expectations. I had never been to Mexico and this is nothing like a resort. The house was a little musty and we thought maybe a cat had gotten locked inside sometime before we arrived because the couch cushions smelled like cat urine. We removed the cushions and put them in a room we weren't using. But like I said, the whole place really grew on me and I'd be there right now if I could! Thanks Ryan!"

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.
