Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • A wonderful week in paradise!

    "My husband and two children and I had a great time at Casa Cereza. Sabine is so nice and willing to help in any situation. She made all our arrangements, including transport to and from Cancun, had our golf cart waiting, lined up individual boat trips for us with people she knows and got us the best prices. Her cafe is wonderful and she packed delicious picnics for us on home-made bread. I highly recommend the quail egg omelet, from Sabine's backyard quails. There is horseback riding just a couple of properties down the beach, and Alejandro and Dora (horse owners) are super nice. We really enjoyed a boat trip with a friend of Sabine's; first we fished and then he made ceviche with the fish we had caught - the most delicious meal ever!"

  • Nice House w/Private Pool Close to Town

    "I just returned from a week-long stay at Casa Blanca. The house was just as advertised - no surprises! That's important when you're staying in a foreign country where you don't speak the language. The beds are comfortable, the AC worked great and the kitchen is fully stocked. It is only a short walk to town and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance as well. My travel partners and I all felt safe and even walked home from dinner after dark on a few occasions. I highly recommend Casa Blanca."

  • Home away from Home!

    "WOW! This place was Great! The condo was so neat, extra clean and had everything we needed for a week of relaxation! The guys snorkelled every day right out the front door! Water was crystal clear, private beach and pool chairs provided! The private swimming pool was super cool and very inviting. We ate great food at several local restaurants and lots of shopping if you can get away from the ocean! Neighbors were so friendly! We will be back!"

  • Lovely villa, perfect for families and friends

    "Me, my boyfriend and three friends rented the villa for six days and we really enjoyed our stay! The house is big and has everything you need. The shared pool is perfect for afternoon hangouts. During the days we went to one of the nearby (absolutely beautiful!!) beaches and did some sightseeing in the area. There are many "tourist attractions" such as cenotes, maya ruins and beaches close to tulum which is perfect for day trips. The owner, the manager and the care taker are all very kind and helpful and we could reach them any time."

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.
