  • A Perfect Stay!

    "We just returned from a stay at Ed's condo and are still talking about the perfect accommodations. The condo was indeed luxurious, spacious, and contained everything anyone would need for a delightful holiday. The furnishings and accessories are lovely and it is obvious a lot of thought has gone into this beautiful home. The grounds are well maintained and the view from the condo is stunning. We spent most evenings in the hammocks at the ocean edge.....it just doesn't get any better than that!! The communication with Ed from first contact thru to arrival time was informative and timely. He answered all questions and gave us many great suggestions about the area.....his info packet covered anything and everything you would need to know during your stay. He even called about the best golf cart rentals in the area before our arrival. Ed, Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.....Your condo is better than 5 stars!.....we are already talking about our return trip next year!"

  • A wonderful family getaway!

    "We were blown away at the size of this property. For this family of 7, there was ample room, with beds to spare. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom, plus another powder room off the living area. The property owner was quick to answer any questions before our visit, and the property manager was really helpful during our stay. He even managed to find my husband some fishing rods to try catching some fish in the marina. The property was really easy to find and everyone in the community was helpful and courteous. The beach and all other amenities were just a short walk away. Our 5 children had a blast. We were unable to use the pool to our advantage because of the rainy weather. I highly recommend this place."

  • Great property!

    "The actual property looks much better than the pictures posted on this site. It is absolutely gorgeous. We were pleasantly surprised! The condo is very clean, the beach is nearby, within walking distance, and the pools on the property are huge! My friends and I stayed for 5 days and we literally had the pools to ourselves. The condo is fully stocked with everything you need, from cooking utensils to laundry detergent to toilet paper! The property staff is very friendly. Alvin, the owner, was very patient in answering all of my many questions. Ernesto, the property manager, was very kind and patient as well. He continued to offer his services throughout our entire stay, making our trip very comfortable. I definitely recommend renting this property. I will definitely come back. Alvin and Ernesto - thank you so much for your help and hospitality! It is greatly appreciated."

  • Relaxing and beautiful vacation home.

    "We were an extended family of 7 with 2 young children and a teenager and Casa La Via accommodated us very comfortably. It's a beautiful and relaxing home. The owners take much pride in the care of the rental home with attention to detail. Any issues are addressed immediately (within the same day). With daily housekeeping and garden keeper, our vacation was very comfortable. We spent our days snorkeling with the sea turtles in Akumel and visiting beautiful white sand beaches. We spent a day exploring one of many underground Cenotes (Rio Secreto), about a 15 minute car ride away, then returned back to Casa La Via to relax by the pool with a BBQ. In my mid 40s, I have rented many vacation homes and Casa La Via ranks very highly on my list. The owners have taken much pride and effort to make this an enjoyable vacation for renters. With their extensive DVD movie collection, well documented sightseeing and rental operational manuals and much more, there was nothing lacking. Casa La Via is truly a 'home away from home'."

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.
