  • 1st stay in Playa

    "My fiancé and I stayed at this condo last week and had a very pleasant experience. I always worry with sites such as VRBO, but everything was just as it is pictured! This is definitely a great way to experience the area much more than if you were to stay at an all-inclusive. The location of the condo is perfect- we tried so many of the delicious restaurants that were only a few minutes walk from our door. Additionally, we used shuttle and tour services to go on adventures to Tulum, Akumal, Cozumel, Cancun and many other beautiful places. We felt completely safe and were able to get around very easily without a car. We also spent a few days and evenings just hanging out on our private rooftop or going to the beach using the beach chairs provided for us. Overall, a great experience if you are OK with cooking and cleaning up a bit on your own. It's also a huge benefit to know a little Spanish in this area. We would certainly recommend this place! Thanks!"

  • Home away from home

    "We were very fortunate to have a week in this wonderful condo. Traveling with children and grandchild who was 13 months this condo had everything you could think of! All the basics (and more) for cooking. Things to do if the weather does not turn out perfect. The ideal location for those wanting a quiet holiday or those with families. The location was close to all the amenities such as shopping, restaurants and right on the beach. It is also a great location for adventurers who would like to go on tours or take local transport to access Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen or Cozumel. Very convenient was the regular visits from the manager who spoke fluent Spanish/English and was available to answer questions. The beach and water in this part of the beach were very well kept and absolutely gorgeous!"

  • Sweeter than Sugar

    "My wife, three kids and I stayed at Casa Azucar in July 2014. The house was perfect. We had the beach to ourselves for all four days! This beach was gorgeous. We snorkled, shell hunted and relaxed in the cooling breezes of the Caribbean. Marcia was a great help. She drew a map of town indicating where we could find all of our provisions for some excellent meals. We took an hour drive to Chaccobean to visit this ancient site. We were the only ones there for over two hours, truly magical. I would reccomend this house to anyone looking for a perfect getaway. I just wish I was still there."

  • A Mayan Riviera Paradise!

    "What a magnificent place! I've rented homes online before and what I saw was not always what I got. This exceeded my expectations in beauty, location, services and comfort. Udi's home is designed to perfection. The staff couldn't be better. Martin is an amazing chef. We will definitely return. It was particularly nice to go in July when we could watch the sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach, but this would be one of my top picks anytime of the year. The bedrooms are all gorgeous and the view from the living room is spectacular. Thank you for giving us the perfect family vacation. It was exactly what we hoped for! One final note. Udi takes great pride in both Akumal and his home and you get to work with him personally. He helped us immensely and we have become friends as a result."

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.
