Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Island Getaway

    "First time on Isla Mujeres- this condo suited us just fine- location, location, location is the first thing that comes to mind. Playa Norte is the best beach, and Nautibeach is only steps away. This condo is convenient to restaurants and shopping, has a nice pool and adjacent bar/grill, beautifully maintained garden and grounds, and staff that are very helpful. The condo itself is comfortable and well cared for, and arrangements with Katy couldn't have been easier! We liked the main floor unit with patio for easy in and out to the pool and beach. Friends stayed in the units on both sides of us; we had ample privacy but were able to ajoin patios for group activities. Teens found basketball and volleyball courts nearby and were able to walk safely for whatever they needed. Golf carts are the way to go to explore the island and shop for groceries. We will be back!"

  • A little slice of heaven

    "We had a lovely week both weather wise and activity wise. Had a chance to fish on a small Panga from the down town fleet. Caught a couple sizable Dorado and your Master Chef cooked them up Veracruz style. Really great. Went to Aktun Chen for a neat tour of the Akumal caves and Cenote as well as Ya Kul for some great snorkeling in that bay. So thank you for building such a great place. The staff were great and the location excellent."

  • Beautiful, Relaxing Villa with Helpful Staff and Fun Town

    "Our unit in Villa Sacbe was perfect all around (the price too!) My girlfriend and I are in our late 20's and we're looking for a unique getaway with a little culture and lots of sun & relaxation. Playa del Carmen was the perfect town for this. Local shops everywhere, long stretches of beachfront lounging, great activities of all different types nearby, bars/restaurants/clubs, AND it was easy/affordable to get there. Villa Sacbe is one collection of 4 built by the same creator who also has a few restaurants close by. This gives you access/discounts to these restaurants and the beach club (just one block down towards the water). You also can use the gym and are provided with a very helpful concierge team that helped us plan our trips to nearby Mayan ruins, Cozumel, rentals, and how to do pretty much anything you want. As for the unit itself and it's owner, we couldn't have imagined anything better! It really is even more beautiful than the pictures. The private hottub on the roof really is just yours along with a secluded deck and an upstairs loft great for siesta naps or kids. The housekeeping service provides you with unlimited clean drinking water and towel service free of charge. The kitchen has everything you need except an oven (although there is a toaster oven). The pool is beautiful, clean, and cool with rarely anyone else in it. There is a group of popular night clubs on the same block and they are loud at night. However the owner took the extra consideration to pave the ceiling under the grass roof to block the noise, and once we were in the bedroom with the door closed it was perfectly quiet. Speaking of, the current owner, Sergio, was more than accommodating for us. We had a small issue with how the payment worked and Sergio was great in keeping communication with any questions we had and even helped us with transportation and getting in contact with the staff on site. All around, we enjoyed every second of our five night stay thanks to the sunny & cultural town, the beautiful & relaxing villa, and the helpful & accommodating staff. We're coming back the next chance we get!"

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.
