  • Excellent! Even better than advertised

    "We had a fantastic time at the condo. The location is absolutely stunning and the company was incredibly easy to deal with. I would highly recommend, even better than they advertised."

  • Family Spring Break Getaway

    "Loved this place! It was everything advertised and more. The house is spacious giving everyone a place to relax and unwind. We have two girls who spent hours enjoying the private pool. We loved all the different terraces/decks for enjoying the views/sunsets and unwinding. Also loved the two iguanas that suntanned by the pool each day! We rented a golf cart for most of our stay and enjoyed cruising around the island exploring the many different parts. It was fun for the kids to experience living amongst the locals, watching the different mopeds driving past offering agua (water), freshly squeezed juices, and tortillas. Brenda and Brian are wonderful hosts who provided us with so much information and assistance. They are very intuitive to your needs! We made most of our meals at Casa Flores as we find with young children it is easier to eat at home. There is a large supermarket close by where you can buy pretty much anything. We enjoyed North Beach (there is a great snorkeling area for kids at the Avalon Channel), shopping downtown, the church square for people watching and the beautiful fish at Castille Garrafon (way cheaper than the all inclusive Garrafon Park). I'm ready to go back now!"

  • PERFECT LITTLE SPOT IN HEAVEN

    "This was our first stay at Casa Bonita and before our stay was over, we were booking our next stay. This property is the perfect location on the beach road.... The home itself is creatively decorated and cleverly constructed. Laying on the beach is 3 seconds away....With it literally being less than 20 steps from the house step to the beach lounge chair. The property itself has great energy and the people who care for it are very kind and helpful. We will back again and again!"

  • Spectacular Home

    "We stayed at Casa Isla for a week. The home is gorgeous- new and clean. Breathtaking views from every room. The sliding glass doors lead to an incredible pool and jacuzzi making for great indoor/ outdoor living. 3 huge bedrooms, great living space. It was very relaxing. Cleaned daily. We had food made, yoga, and facials all in the house. Great week!!!"

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.
