Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Beautiful, Amazing Place

    "The penthouse at Punta Roca Al Cielo is simply amazing. It is beautiful inside and out. Upon arrival the house was set up perfectly and extremely clean. The concierge was extremely helpful and responsive to all our needs. This was our third time staying in this condo and we plan to return year after year. We love everything about Puerto Aventuras and our stay at Punta Roca. The condo is great for someone with slight disabilities. The elevator seems to always be in working order. Several of the bathrooms have walk-in showers."

  • Just what we were looking for

    "I have to say when Fran said "oh we don't do contracts" I was a little worried but after talking with her I decided what the heck and booked for 2 weeks with my husband for our annual Christmas vacation. We were extremely satisfied with this condo. The view from the balcony was beyond what we expected. Fran and Robert are truly beautiful people. Thank you so much for giving us a vacation to remember and we look forward to seeing you soon!!!"

  • very pleased.

    "beautiful condo, beautiful beach and a great restaurant next door"fusion". a couple of normal hiccups along the way were taken care of right away. Edith from the rental company was fantastic and took care of any needs or concerns we had. housekeeping, security and the boys on the beach were great not to mention the servers from fusion serving us on the beach! My only complaint( which is just more of an annoyance) was the pushy drug dealers on 5th avenue. trying to enjoy a relaxing walk with my wife while shopping became an annoying chore. I'm not kidding when I tell you I was asked every ten steps to buy drugs! once you just chock it up as another item, like crafts or jewelry that they're trying to sell, it's not the end of the world. Me and my wife just decided to do our shopping early in the morning and stay clear of 5th ave at night."

  • Excellent multi family or multi generational home

    "We found this to be a great place for our family of 7 adults and 7 children with plenty of bedroom options for all and a large gathering area. The pool area provided hours of fun for the kids and hot tub was great for all. It was clean and well furnished. Marguerite was extremely helpful with our many questions about the area. While we had rental cars for excursions, the gold cart was great for getting around the immediate area. Would highly recomend. Many adventures nearby."

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.
