  • great unit

    "This is a great unit for family or friends. Great unit, great pool, and right on the ocean. Also nice because 5th street is right there and loaded with restaurants and shopping."

  • 7 days in July 2014

    "My wife and I stayed here. We arrived at 1p and we were greeted by the grounds keeper. We felt safe, and enjoyed the pool and roof top. The price was perfect and Pablo and Sabrina responded to emails fast and friendly. We will stay again, as long as the price to rent stays the same, but the place is well worth the money. We ate at all the tiny places, in the southern part of the isla, we wanted $ to go to the isla people, not big places."

  • debbndan from Pgh

    "The penthouse was amazing. It was equipped with everything you need and the beds were comfortable. The best part of staying there were the beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. We stayed with another couple which was perfect as it has 2 full baths. The wraparound veranda was our favorite spot in the morning and evening. We hated to leave."

  • Found My Paradise

    "This was my first stay at this property, I hope it was not my last, I would like to make this an annual trip. The gated community offers a very secure and safe environment. You never have to leave if you don't want to everything you could ever want is right there. I do recommend renting the golf cart, very efficient way to get around. The owners made sure my stay was everything I expected and more, I had everything I needed. The handy "Tips sheets" was very useful. The condo is very clean, spacious and had all the amenities you could ever want. The view is beautiful!!! I found my paradise!!"

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.
