  • Perfect Accommodations for a Family Vacation

    "We stayed a week - needed 3 bedrooms for 3 couples. This condo fit the bill perfectly. It's away from the busy downtown and cruise ship terminals, quiet without feeling secluded. We rented a car (recommended) and it was an easy 15 minute drive to the two food stores in town. The pools and beach at the condo were perfect. Mark always responded to my emails while down there very quickly. Everything that required instructions labeled correctly and a comprehensive guidebook prepared for all things Cozumel. There are books to read, games to play, movies to watch. Victor was great - gave us good suggestions, answered all our questions, always had a smile on his face and every outing he arranged for us was perfect. I left my coat on the plane when we arrived in Cozumel and thought I would never see it again. Victor knows the head of security at the airport and found my coat!!! Seems Victor knows everyone. We had a meal prepared for us by Esparanza and was amazing. We were hoping our flights would be cancelled so we can stay longer. We always felt safe no matter the hour. We highly recommend staying here!!! We did eat at Paradise Beach which is a 3 minute walk from the condo - would not recommend it, the Money Bar is a fun place to go to watch the sunset.....You can go snorkeling right off the dock shown in the pictures here....and see some neat fish. Enjoy your stay - it will be hard not to!!!"

  • Nice Villa with great sunsets.

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Nice Villa with great sunsets. Must choose the CHEF option My family of 21 travels to Mexico every year, over the New Year. Some were at a villa down the road (wish we were able to get Ranas next door). This was the first time we used the "Chefs" and it was the best thing. I don't know how we survived in years past. They worked with us on the menu ahead of time to simplify some of the meals since we had a lot of picky eaters. But it was awesome having breakfast ready every morning and being able to stay outside and watch the sunset every night, then returning to a prepared meal. They also brought the food with them and cleaned up after. This option is a MUST. As far as the house, it was nice. A typical Mexican Villa. We are used to hard beds and not enough hot water, but nothing that would stop us from returning in the future. The pool was a lot of fun and the toddler loved playing on the shallow ledge around the entire pool. Bring your water shoes for snorkeling out back. The ladder into the water is now a sturdy metal one (not like in some of the pictures). The 3 year old was able to do the ladder, as was the 65 year old grandma. We used noodles to hold ourselves up while snorkeling and it was something we did every day. I just wish there was a sandy beach too - that was the only thing missing from this property. This is the first time we got a rental car. It was worth it for running to the grocery store, getting ice, and people going in to town for sightseeing."

  • Looking for fun in the sun

    "My husband and I stayed at Casa Patron for a week in November and the only disappointment was that we hadn't booked the house for two weeks! Everything was beautiful, comfortable, well stocked, and very nicely maintained. Yazmin was attentive and responsive to our questions prior to our arrival on the island, and Stephanie met us at Casa Patron when we arrived to show us around the property. She responded in a timely manner when we contacted her mid-week. We would book this property again!"

  • Nice getaway! Allergy Free!! AND SEA TURTLES!!!!

    "My husband and I spent a week here in July and found this condo at Cancun Plaza exactly as advertised. It is a studio, but they have maximized the space. The pool was comfortable, the ocean a few steps away and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a bus to go to town. Once we went to the store, using the microwave and hot plate, we were able to prepare breakfast and lunch in the condo every day to save money. The restaurant is OK (not great) in a pinch and there is a burger place across the street that is pretty good (shrimp fajitas were great). Late at night we were able to watch (quietly, in the dark, SEVERAL YARDS away, no flash photography AT ALL) Sea Turtles come up on land, drag themselves inland, bury themselves, lay eggs, dig out and crawl back into the sea (about a three hour process). It was amazing. There are two convenience stores for water and sodas and snacks. Carmen (the on site manager) was amazing and super responsive and helpful and the homeowners answered all of our questions right away. There is no smoking, feather pillows or pets allowed here so I did not have any allergy problems. I would just recommend bringing your own detergent if you are hyper-sensitive and will need to do laundry. All in all, great experience. Would recommend to anyone who does not mind being the only Americans on site (it was actually quite nice)."

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.
