  • Superb Choice for Cozumel

    "We did a lot of searching before deciding on this unit and feel we could not have made a better choice. The unit is lovely and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The balcony is large with a fantastic view....the outdoor furniture is attractive and comfortable, including a table and chairs where we ate breakfast every morning and dinner several evenings. Towels were big and soft, nice bathrobes are furnished, bed was very comfortable, lots of closet and drawer space, washer & dryer in unit, shower was big and water pressure was good, Wifi was reliable and fast, and having the daily maid service was wonderful. The complex is beautiful and everyone was so friendly and helpful and the landscapers and maintenance guys work everyday except Sunday to keep everything looking so nice. There was also a local gentleman, Luis, that we could call with any problem and he would take care of it immediately. The private beach area was beautiful with lots of palapas and lounge chairs and the two pools were quite nice, too, with lots of loungers and a shaded area at each one. Right next door was a pier where snorkel and dive boats will come and pick you up and there is a very good dive operation right there called The Dive House. We loved the location because it was so quiet and away from the craziness of town, especially when the cruise ships are in, which seemed to be almost every day. With a car, you are only a quick and easy 10 minute drive to town and then you can use the car to visit all the lovely, remote beach areas on the south and east sides of the islands. Coconuts on the east side was one of our favorites for lunch...right on a bluff overlooking crashing waves....and the food was great. There are two large grocery stores in town...Mega and Chedraui...we alternated between them and they both have a lot of prepared items for take away which made cooking at the condo even easier. The kitchen in the unit was exceptionally well equipped and we could really cook anything when we wanted to cook. Cozumel has so many good restaurants. I would suggest you look at TripAdvisor for restaurants in Cozumel to get some ideas. We would recommend Coconuts, Guidos and Kondesa."

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.
