  • Flexible owner, Clean and cozy place, Amazing view

    "Everything was great. The on-site management was very accommodating and the owner worked with our last-minute reservation. The unit was clean and the location is unbeatable. It is located in a SAFE place with on-site parking. The washer and dryer are a huge plus, too. I will be back in the next couple of months."

  • Perfect Location

    "The view from this condo couldn't be better! The porch was great and so was the location to the beach and pool. We were here 8 days and enjoyed every minute. Had some rainy days and you have to get used to everywhere but downtown shutting down after 4p when the cruise ships leave, but we got used to that. It's a beautiful location, reasonably priced, and well worth it. Would do it again in a minute!! Thanks for everything!"

  • Lovely villa, perfect for families and friends

    "Me, my boyfriend and three friends rented the villa for six days and we really enjoyed our stay! The house is big and has everything you need. The shared pool is perfect for afternoon hangouts. During the days we went to one of the nearby (absolutely beautiful!!) beaches and did some sightseeing in the area. There are many "tourist attractions" such as cenotes, maya ruins and beaches close to tulum which is perfect for day trips. The owner, the manager and the care taker are all very kind and helpful and we could reach them any time."

  • Well priced Casita

    "I rented the Casita for a month from Jan-Feb this year. The pictures and description are not on the website but accurate pictures and description was sent to me via email promptly. There are two apartments on the property that are larger that are also for rent. The property is set back off the main highway (307) just under 1km and into the town of Akumal its about 3kms. I was without a vehicle for the first three weeks of my stay and found the collectivo an easy and inexpensive way to commute to Akumal Beach or any where along the highway between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum during the daytime. Because the property is off the beaten path a bit it is nice to have a car especially at night to travel between the property and restaurants in town. If walking back to the property at night bring along a torch/flashlight. The Casita was cleaned thoroughly once a week by Wendy, and David maintains the grounds. David speaks some English and Wendy Spanish; if you don't speak spanish an spanish dictionary is helpful when communicating. The kitchen comes with a fridge, microwave, blender,toaster and electric stove top burners and a drinkable water dispenser; pretty much everything you need in a kitchen. Overall, a well priced accomodation for budgetminded travellers."

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.
