  • Nice and quiet condo near 5th Ave.

    "Very nice condo located in a small building in a quiet and safe area. Just along the 5th ave with all the restaurants and bar but without the noise! Warm welcome from the owners. The place is clean and perfectly maintained. Wifi is working perfectly. Very large bed, firm and comfortable. It's a nice place to enjoy Playa del Carmen."

  • Perfect Playa Home

    "My family and I stayed at Casa Blanca for one week. There were 2 couples 55+, 2 couples age 30s, a 4 and a 2 year old. The house had 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms. The upstairs was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 small children because of the daybed and trundle. Well stocked kitchen with appliances including grill. The pool and hottub were outstanding. Perfect size, warm water, shallow area for the children and always open. Location was perfect. The beach was less than 1 block away and more secluded in playacar than the downtown area. Downtown/5th avenue was a 10 min walk by road or beach. The property was clean and the staff were friendly and professional. The owner was great to work with as well with quick responses and friendly emails. I would strongly recommend this property and if we return to Playa we will rent it again."

  • Fantastic Time

    "My husband and I brought our two teenage kids to Playa for Spring break and had a wonderful time. Everything Erica you said about the apartment was wonderful. The condo is very spacious, clean, and fantastic comfy beds. You have a beautiful home in Playa and I would not hesitate to recommend your unit and your service to all my friends here in Calgary. Thanks again..."

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.
