Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • FIVE STAR!

    "I can't say enough good things about staying at Alta Vista! I had a group of 12 friends at this property for a wedding and it exceeded our expectations. The service and property were excellent. Erin an her team were more than accommodating for our group and were available to answer any questions we had."

  • Slice of Paradise

    "The location of this property is perfect. You are in a gated community with all the amenities you need and or want. You never have to leave-nor will you want to! That being said, you are close enough to consider exploring the many sights along the Mayan Riviera. There are plenty of activities to pick from. The condo is spotless and well maintained with a full equipped kitchen (and outside gas grill). The listing of this property is spot on. Everything you need for your vacation is there. We chose to dine one night in Playa del Carmen and while it was fun to see the "street vendors" we had far better meals in the PA community. Great eats and drinks at your front door, if you can ever pull yourself from the back door- with the pool and patio it can be hard to do. One evening we hired a local chef to come in and prepare us dinner at home. WOW what a treat. He did the shopping, cooking, serving, and cleaning. We only supplied the wine and you can get that in the center of PA at a local shop. This property can appeal to the laid back family or group and yet the more adventurous will have plenty to pick from with the ruins, cenotes, fishing, and theme/water parks all nearby. I would and have recommended this condo. We hope to return."

  • Great Escape

    "This was the third time we have rented this condo in Cozumel. First time was an all girls visit, second time with couples and the third time was a little of both. It is in a great location. Close to the airport and walking distance from the main town area of Cozumel. If you do not have a car, there are also grocery stores within walking distance. Cindy was a delight to work with and very helpful with any of our needs. I would definitely rent again."

  • RELAXING VACATION AND OUTSTANDING DIVING!

    "The condo was exactly as described and well located on the island, about 5 miles from town. The beach area was really nice/private and quiet and the snorkeling right outside the condo is great. The pool area was also very nice and quiet. We made use of the bicycles to get to town and for excercize and the old road that runs by the condo and half way around the island is fantastic since it is mostly restricted to bikes with very little traffic. The floorplan and furnishings worked great for our group of 2 couples and 2 singles. We did a refresher dive course and experienced AMAZING scenery below the water. I highly recommend Phocea dive shop. The staff we met (Guadalupe the housekeeper and Alex) were super nice and helpful. We loved Wet Wendy's for salsa dancing with a great band on Wednesday night, and the sunset happy hour at The Money Bar was awesome (good mojitos). Hope to get back to Cozumel soon for more diving and would stay at Paradise 2B 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.
