Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Great house and great location. Perfect for our family!

    "We rented this house for a family vacation with my sister and her partner, my parents and our one year old baby (7 including the baby). We chose it for its proximity to town and the beach and were not disappointed! Everything went smoothly, from pre-departure communication with David, the owner and the rental agency, to arrival to departure. The house was very spacious and well equipped. Great kitchen, I would just recommend getting some dishes that are microwave friendly (all are plastic, except the glasses) and some larger salad or mixing type bowls, but otherwise it had absolutely everything! We only had one problem when the gas ran out, but we called The rental agency and they sent people immediately! We found them very accessible by phone. The maid service very thorough. Wifi worked well. There are definitely two nicer rooms with the king beds, while the third room is a little plainer, but it was fine for us and would be good for kids. Air con everywhere, though we didn't need it as there was a "cold snap" during our visit. The communal pool was nice and quiet. The beach was close and lovely. The house is right by the gate to exit Playacar, so you are close to shops and restaurants. We walked everywhere, but you could also grab a taxi. We tried to avoid 5th ave as it was too touristy for us, but we found some great restaurants further up from the water. We rented a van twice, with no problems, and toured ruins and cenotes close to Tulum. Also easy to do a trip over to Cozumel for diving or snorkelling- recommended! The birds are noisy, though I didn't find it too bad at dawn, so sleeping was fine. There were other times in the day (feeding time?) when it got really loud, but it was ok. I would rent Casa Guacamaya again if coming back to Playa. Thanks again David!"

  • The best views I've ever expereienced - anywhere in the world!

    "We are so thankful for this opportunity to stay in your beautiful home. The pictures of the house dont do it justice. The house was super clean and our groceries were waiting for us when we arrived. We woke up fairly early in the mornings and walked all over. Then we enjoyed a cup of coffee and looked at the water. What a relaxing week with family!! We had breakfast twice at Mango Cafe and dinner once. We loved Qubanos. We had lunch and all of us ordered the sampler which was amazing. We spent two days at the Fenix beach and rented a stand up paddle board which was really fun. We had a great time just relaxing and enjoying the water. One day we got massages there at the beach club. We had pizza at Oscar's in the back near the boats and it was really good. We had dinner at Olivia's - it was an outstanding meal! Probably our favorite if we had to pick. We had dinner at a fairly new place on the sidewalk at Rueben's and we loved it. Our last night we had dinner at Lolo Loraine's and it was a memorable experience. We asked Omar (golf cart guy that you suggested) if he knew anyone with a sailboat we might rent and sure enough he found one. The man is from Belgium and the company is really new Adventure Experiences - his name is Sebastian. His boat is a 2010 46' Jeanneau. A beautiful boat. He sailed us around for 4 hours and took us swimming and snorkeling, lunch, and all for a very reasonable price. It was private and a real treat. We hung out by the pool almost eery day. Amazing! We played games at the house every night. Most of all we were captivated every single day and night be the view from your house in every room and outside. I have been all over the world but I have not ever experienced a view quite like yours. We were grateful for all of the information you sent to us before our trip. We followed your suggestions and everything went VERY smoothly."

  • I don't even know where to start

    "Our stay at Casa del Agua was nothing short of magical. The home is unbelievably gorgeous as you can see by the pictures and the location is amazing, but what really made our stay special was the staff. Roberto was always there with a drink or whatever we needed at any time, but even better was the fact that he was one of the most fun, kindest and most spiritual people we have ever met. Emilio, the chef, was also amazing. We gave him free reign to cook whatever he wanted and never disappointed. The flavors and presentation were always top notch, not to mention that he is so nice and puts his heart into every meal. I want to fly him home to cook for us every day!!! The owner, Gerardo, who lives nearby also stopped in several times just to check on us and make sure everything was okay. I didn't even want to write this review because I'm afraid that the home will always be booked next time we want to go!! However, it wouldn't be fair not to share this place with the world. We have traveled all over and stayed at some of the nicest hotels around and I can truly say that you should not hesitate for a second in booking your stay here.... Absolutely amazing!!!"

  • Great place to stay in Puerto

    "Great place to stay while in Puerto. The owner did a great job communicating with us from the start of the reservation process through our stay. The condo was clean with plenty of space and no issues. The pool was a great place to shake off the morning hangover and the roof top terrace was nice to sit and have a coffee with breakfast. Added bonus - we got to watch monkeys across the lagoon from the roof top. We didn't use the TV at all but we did use the WIFI which was very much appreciated. We had other friends staying at Village Del Mar so the use of the golf cart was huge for us. We would gather up after breakfast and head over to Del Mar or the Omni and wouldn't return until late in the evening. None of the neighbors bothered us at all and the property manager was there if we ever needed anything. Thanks again for a great place to stay!"

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.
