    "My family and I just returned from a fabulous week in this condo. It was exactly what what described -- clean, airy, new kitchen, and perfect location next to the beach and the pool. We sat out on the balcony morning and evening, drinking coffee, drinking wine, playing cards with our kids, reading, and just taking in the beautiful view. We also did a lot of snorkeling, exploring, visiting cenotes, jumping off a small cliff, swimming with the dolphins, and jumping the waves. Jim Baumgaertner, the owner, was so easy to work with -- and on top of that, he was very helpful with tips on transportation, places to visit, places to eat, and what to pack. Jaime Revilla, the property manager, was available and helpful as well. Though this was our first visit, it will not be our last. We cannot wait to go back!"

  • Lots of light with a wonderful view

    "The corner unit is light and breezy ... the second floor view makes you feel like you are floating on air. The wrap around balcony opens the whole place up. Wonderful filtered light comes thru curtains, just right for reading when you just cannot play anymore. Air conditioning and all fans, frig, electrical in perfect order. Many fun things to do ... just walk for miles down the beach to visit one beach club after another."

  • Awesome Stay

    "We had a wonderful time at this property. The owner, Joe, and the rest of the staff were all very attentive and made our stay super pleasant. The apartment and the ocean view are just plain gorgeous. Quiet location, perfect for families with kids like ours, but with all the restaurants, shopping and nightlife just one block away in 5a Avenida. We will definitely come back!"

  • A Gem of a House

    "Can't say enough good things about Casa Loro. Just returned from a week's stay there and it was perfect. The house is well appointed, fully stocked, warm and comfortable. The "dipping" pool is the best after a warm day of exploring. The back yard is very tropical with blooming plants and beautifully maintained, a lovely place to sit in the a.m. and listen to the birds. The beds were very comfortable and the linens/towels plentiful. Joni, the fabulous manager, couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. She even had some essentials (Oreos are essential, right?!) on hand to eat in case it had been a long trip, which was just an unexpected, special bonus. (She had healthy things too.) All in all, if you're going to Cozumel, we HIGHLY recommend Casa Loro!"

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.
