  • Casa Santa Ana

    "This house was one of the best things about my trip to Merida.I came to have dental work done by one of the very competent dentists in the area (MUCH cheaper than in NY) as well as sightsee (I don't drive) and Casa Santa Ana was the perfect base, close to everything I wanted to do.For trips to the amazing ruins, I was able to join small guided tours, and the rest of the time I walked , took buses or taxis... The house itself is a dream..The front door opens to a really high-ceilinged room with beautiful tiled floors and a Nakashima dining table, and manages to retain a sophisticated Mexican feel while featuring the owner's eclectic, slightly bohemian furniture and art.Everything is done with taste and carefully curated, one has the impression of being a guest in a lovely home, not a "renter". I loved the coolness and quiet of the interior when coming in off the street, and of course, those dips in the pool under the blooming bouganvillea.I'll come back when I can."

  • Perfect for Us!

    "From our initial contact with the owners to Kelly's informative and welcoming greeting, our vacation was off to a great start. We enjoyed every aspect of this house and location: the overall design, comfortable beds, and well-supplied kitchen. It was pleasant to drink coffee in the morning and wine in the evening on the covered rooftop deck. From there, we watched the antics of the iguanas on the neighbor's boundary walls and palm trees. We liked the neighborhood atmosphere, especially the little children playing across the street and the peacock that strutted on a nearby roof. We like to walk and found that we could walk to most every place we wanted to go, and everyone we encountered along the way was friendly. It is a very safe place. The few cabs we used were reasonable and efficient. We definitely want to stay here again and highly recommend the house/location to anyone."

  • As always our favorite place to relax

    "This was our 4th visit to Casa Cavu. We plan to return. Our favorite place to vacation and relax. The house had a fresh coat of paint since the previous year. turtles nested at night at the foot of the palms and patio area. Rocia and Isidro, always the best in taking care of us. This year we took the boat out from Casa Cenote Water sports and snorkeled. 2.5 hours = $35 each. A bargain, and you can bring your own beer. They supply the equip, the boat, the driver, and the cooler. Its the simple things about this place we love."

  • Beautiful, clean and great location!!!!

    "I went with my friend, daughter and grandson, the place was clean, location was great closer to the beach than to 5th Ave. They have parking available, but you really don't need a car, it's nicely located. Staff is helpful and friendly. Would consider renting again."

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.
