Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Great location, lovely apartment !

    "If your looking for affordable luxury this is your property ! Well run building, friendly staff, all the amenities and more, plenty of space, convenient for the town but far enough away for a bit of peace and quiet. Highly recommended."

  • Close to Yal-Kul, and Akumal's Half Moon Bay Beach

    "The condo worked out great for us. We didn't plan our trip out very far in advance, and so we got lucky and landed this great spot. The layout is great for a small family, or two couples. The location is right next to the Yal-Kul lagoon, and very close to the Akumal beaches. I wouldn't recommend this place if you don't have a car, as it can be long walks to get to the many restaurants in the main area of Akumal. The listing was very appropriate and accurate, and the communication with the manager was easy and professional. I'd highly recommend staying here, and I plan to again in the future."

  • Can't wait to come back!!

    "We have been back for a month now and we can't quit talking about it!! We had an amazing time. We traveled with a group of 12 adults and we had space to be together when we wanted and have alone time when we needed it! We were celebrating a 40th and 50th birthday and Brian and Jess were amazing - answering questions and referring us to local contacts that could assist in making our trip unforgettable. The pictures don't really do the house justice - it is just that gorgeous and well maintained. If you are thinking about doing the meal plan and wondering if it is worth it - yes, it is. Without a doubt. Theresa is very talented - you should try her cooking before she realizes she could open her own restaurant. On her day off, try one of the beach clubs. It won't be as good as Theresa's cooking, but it will be fun. With such a big group, we decided only to get one car and it worked out perfectly. We ran into town for groceries and beverages, but you will find you really don't want to leave the house. It is so relaxing. Even with 12 margarita-soaked adults. We hope to make this an annual trip! Thanks again for all your help."

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.
