    "We frequent the area because it is easy travel for us and predictible. We live in the northern U.S., so it is a great winter getaway. The weather has always been close to perfect. The Cancun airport is easy, as is the travel from the airport to this home. We always rent a car. There is a decent grocery store in Tulum, but there are many great restaurants closeby. Our favorite little joint between Cancun and this home is Turtle Bay Cafe in Akamal. My daughter thinks they have the best smoothies anywhere hands-down (perhaps just nostalgic, but they are good!) We eat at most restaurants without concern (but we always ask if they use purified water/ice). We are a little more careful cooking with food/water when at home (use iodine to clean everything). This is an absolutely Lovely Home. Everything was as it looked in the photos. We visited and stayed with only four of us(2 adults, 15 yo and 11 yo). It would be a great spot for multi-family gatherings or other larger group. The description says 6 bedrooms, which is accurate. However, two of the rooms also have separate sitting rooms with a couch that converts to a comfortable bed, which is separated from the main bedroom by heavy curtains, so each could be easily used for another sleeping room. The private outdoor space makes this home even more special. We did not use it, but the roof top deck is huge and would be a great place for a party. It is very convenient to have the pool, hammocks, paddle boarts, kayaks and life jackets all availbale for your use. it is very peaceful. The caretakers on-site and owner, (Nancy in CA) are both responsive and good to work with. The wi-fi is a little hit or miss. Also, there are lot of weeds off shoreline, so you need to paddle out a distance to swim. It is a calm bay, which is great for boating, snorkeling. Don't anticipate riding waves here. There are several fun activities in the area if you are looking for adventure. We love the beach at Tulum. There are some good restaurants there. We prefer the ruins at Coba over Chichen Itza. We also recommend the 4 in 1 tour with zip lines, skycyle, cavern rappal and cave snorkel and XPLOR. We did the XPLOR Fuego (night time with fire) and would highly recommend it (avoid the lines & the heat and it is fun to do at night). I would pick the latter if just picking one. Enjoy. It's a beautiful place!"

  • Love this place

    "My group of 8 goes down to Las Palomas every year and this condo is one of our favorite places. Its not only comfortable but its also clean, spacious and has all the amenities you need to make your trip enjoyable. Also, the owners of the condo, Julie and Ron are fantastic!! They will be quick to respond to any questions and concerns you might have and that's big in my book! If you haven't stay at Las Palomas, your in for a treat. So blend a margarita, grab a beach chair, a book and let the worries of the world disappear. If you stay at this condo, I guarantee it won't be you last visit to this condo Just don't stay when I need it! ;) Cheers, Lucky"

  • 60th Wedding Anniversary

    "We stayed at the Sunrise House in August, Celebrating my Mom and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary. We love the home, we have been here before. Parents stayed in the Jewel house, right next door so very convenient . The Mexican details in the home are beautiful. Leo our host was very helpful. We took the family to the American legion in Chapala for a barbeque and the markets in Chapala and Ajijic. And of course Tango(our favorite restaurant) to celebrate with a big dinner with friends and family. A great trip.. We are repeat guests at this home and will be back.."

    "This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here and it is a superb experience each time. When you walk into the condo and see the amazing view from the front deck and the beautiful grounds you know you are in a special place. There are people who freak out thinking of traveling down into Mexico, (My husband was one of them, WAS) but we never once felt unsafe. We especially felt safe at Randy's and Ann's place. Gated complex with security, a 2 car garage. We both highly recommend staying here, we know that we will be back as soon as we can."

Mexico Travel Tips

It’s no wonder why Americans vacation in Mexico more than any other country in the world. With its picturesque beaches, ancient civilizations and worries-by-the-wayside attitude, this warm wonderland makes an ideal getaway for families and spring breakers alike. Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, there is no shortage of adventure or relaxation. Listen to the waves crash on the shore or explore the steps where Mayans used to gather thousands of years ago. Whichever it is, get used to carefree livin’.

Mexico City

As the capital of Mexico, Mexico City is bursting with one of the largest metropolitan centers in the world that’s located on the former grounds of the Aztecs. Take a trip back in time as you step foot in the Plaza de la Constitución Zocala, the ancient capital and ceremonial center of Tenochtitlan and the biggest public square in the western hemisphere. In the center of the square, the army ceremoniously raises and lowers the flag each day at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. You won’t want to miss Templo Mayor, where archaeologists are still discovering artifacts about Aztec history and lifestyle. Mexico’s National Museum of Anthropology unveils everything from pre-Hispanic Mayan cultures to the Spanish conquest. Then dress sharp as you make for one of the countless five-star restaurants, or chat with the locals in artsy neighborhoods like Romo or Condesa. As a stunning stratification of ancient ruins beneath modern bustle, Mexico City is a must-visit.

Puerto Vallarta

With a kaleidoscope of activities along 40 miles of coastline, Puerto Vallarta has it all. It is tucked in the Sierra Madre Mountains, and its locals have be known to welcome visitors with open arms. Swimming with dolphins, boating across the bay and unwinding along El Malecon are all on the menu here. Thrill-seekers, take on the adventure of a lifetime at the Puerto Vallarta Outdoor Adventure Tour, where you can speed across canopies zip-lining, embark on a 4x4 off-road drive and even go rappelling down a waterfall! Once you’re beat and need a little rest, hang out in the oceanside central plaza to gaze at the beauty of the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, an emblem of the Puerto Vallarta that is famous across the world.

Cancun

Live it up amidst the hustle and bustle of the Cancun nightlife. Party-rockin’ bars and clubs bursting with music and dancing are everywhere. Pulse-pounding rhythms and an up-till-5 attitude make Cancun a haven for college spring breakers. However, it is also a great cultural destination for those who want to experience Chichen Itza, an awe-inspiring Mayan archaeological site which was a main hub of the ancient civilization. Avoid crowds by getting there early in the morning before the tour buses arrive. Along the coast, the beaches are pristine; Isla Mujeres and Playa Linda, among others, offer magnificent swimming with even better views.

San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel del Allende provides an authentic Mexican escape off the beaten path from overcrowded beaches and tourist lines. Situated on the steep hillside, the city exudes a feeling of warmth as the churches, orange rooftops and brightly colored buildings serve as an inspiration for the artists who live there. During the day, you can take your lover horseback riding or visit Bellas Artes for a look into the study of visual arts, dance and music since 1938. Bask in the beauty of El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel’s botanical garden, that features 445 aces of ecological reserve that the Dalai Lama declared one of the five “zones of peace” in Mexico. It gives you an opportunity to slow life down again and enjoy it as it comes. When the sun sets, grab a delicious meal at Cafe Rama for a casual yet elegant atmosphere.

Cozumel

Located off the eastern coast along the Caribbean, Cozumel is a small island that boasts big fun. Wade in the turquoise waters of Palancar Beach that are beyond dreamy. It is known for water sports like snorkeling, sailing and kayaking. Expert divers tend to flock to North Beach. Or, embark on a pirate cruise for dinner and fun for the whole family. Discover Mayan remains at the San Gervasio Ruins, a shrine where Mayan women used to visit to worship their goddess of love and fertility Ixchel. Wear close-toed shoes, though, as you’ll be walking black sand beaches with lizards and iguanas. For nature buffs, head south to embrace Faro Celerain Eco Park, also known as Parque Punta Sur, which holds 2,500 acres of indigenous species, such as crocodiles and sea turtles.

Come see why Mexico’s idyllic beaches, historical sites and vibrant city life are a mecca for tourists year-round.
