  • Don & Kim

    "Had a great time in the coz. The condo was a great part of that ! It was our home away from home for all too short 2 weeks. Some of the things we loved were the great towels,the shower that you never wanted to get out of, the pick up and drop off of the dive boat at the pier,the sunsets,the beach,the great people we met ,and of course the staff!"

  • Unbelievably beautiful!

    "This was our first time to the island and wow did we luck out finding this place!! The views out of the condo couldn't have been any more beautiful!! The place was immaculately clean and decorated very nicely. There was so much room we could have definitely had company. There wasn't a single thing that we would have changed about our stay, other than to make it longer next time (lol)......and hopefully that will be sooner than later. The staff at Mundaca and and Andrea gave us every bit of information we needed to not have to worry about a thing! What an awesome experience!!!"

  • Perfect graduation gift

    "My wife and I travel to the Caribbean frequently. Always using VRBO and almost always staying at a new location. We are looking for our retirement location. This time we took our daughter and her friend as a graduation gift. Everything with rental unit met or exceeded our expectations. From the beginning of the process until the end, everything went smoothly. El Farro is the perfect location in Playa, and Playa is the perfect town to take college girls. The girls had a great time, and my wife and I feel very comfortable with them, running around town, even at night. Of course, as always we talked with them about exercising good judgment and safety precautions. With that said, they ran around shopping, and I'm sure that they did their share of partying, with absolutely no problems. When we take our other kids to Mexico for their graduation gift, we will stay here again."

  • The Best Vacation!

    "We had a great time at Villas Playasol. I went with my almost 4 year old and husband for a week over Christmas time. Liz was so easy to communicate with and responded quickly to all my e-mails. Cece the property manager was always available to answer questions or help in anyway. We have stayed once before in Puerto Morelos and found Villas Playasol to be the best accommodation around. The pool is excellent and the beach is a few steps away. The condo is just a few short blocks walk from town. We had an amazing time and hope to go back soon. Thanks for everything!! Katherine S."

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.
