About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lomas Mariposa Condominiums are located on 42nd Street between the famous 5th Avenue with its eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and bars, and the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera. Penthouse Mariposa 103 has 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one main and one ensuite), a large living room / dining room, a full kitchen & a laundry room.

Start your morning with a delicious fresh cup of coffee in the morning breeze of our rooftop deck and enjoy the sounds of Playa del Carmen. Enjoy a home made breakfast of fresh eggs, bacon and fresh orange juice. Or give yourself some time off and enjoy your breakfast at one of the many restaurants on Fifth Avenue. One of our favourite places for breakfast is Cueva del Cango (Monkey Cave) where you are served freshly made juices, fresh eggs and style and many other healthy choices. Cueva del Cango is 2 short blocks from Lomas Mariposa.

After a late breakfast, walk to the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera and relax to the sound of the waves lapping the sandy beaches. Read your favourite book while watching morning joggers and midday walkers. Enjoy the scenery. Walk along the long beaches in the warm waters of the Caribbean. The beaches are usually crowded going South but virtually empty going North.

Stroll back to the condo and cool off in the freshwater pool located in the center courtyard. Enjoy your favorite cocktail, fresh salsa & chips on the roof top deck and enjoy the remainder of the day in the diminishing heat of the sun sipping a Margarita.

If you love to cook, we have a full kitchen with many amenities. Or you can stroll along 5th & 10th Avenues where you will find many restaurants with various offerings from Argentinian Parilla (grill steak) & Italian dishes to Lebanese & Thai food.

After a lovely dinner, enjoy an evening stroll on 5th Avenue. Splurge on a Haagen-Dazs ice cream or a Starbucks capuccino. Stroll back to Loma Mariposa for a gentle and relaxing back rub, sipping your favorite wine and enjoy your dreams of the Mayan Riviera.

About Joe

We are a professional couple and our children are grown up. We now have lots of time to travel and enjoy ourselves.

Joe purchased this condo in 2006

Why Joe chose Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen has miles of beautiful white sandy beaches and a large selection of restaurants from all over the world. Shopping in Playa del Carmen is great. It is also close to Cancun which has a large international airport with lots of flights from major cities in North America and Europe. Playa del Carmen has year round warm weather and friendly people. It is located close to historical places such as Coba and Tulum and close to ecological parks such as Xcaret and Xelha. Downtown Cancun is only an hour North by bus and Cozumel is only a 30 minute ferry ride from Playa del Carmen. Playa del Carmen has lots of activities for all ages.

What makes this condo unique

Lomas Mariposa Condominiums are located close to the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera where you can relax under a palapa, have a massage, snorkel, scuba dive or parasail. You can also rent a Sea Doo and ride the waves. We are also close to the famous Fifth Avenue where you can dine and shop to your heart's content. Lomas Mariposa Condominiums has a private pool and a roof deck for use by all our guests.

Wonderful Condo, Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Condo met the expectations of the advertisements and pictures on the website. The owners' service was excellent. They provided us 8 pages of information, including contact information for a driver to and from the airport! There is a natural foods store and coffee shop (Ah Cacao) right around the corner. We walked to the beach and used the swimming pool daily. If you go, you must eat at Los Aguachiles! We will definitely return!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband, ten-month-old son and I definitely enjoyed our stay in this condo! The location is fantastic, a stone's throw from 5th avenue with all the great restaurants, and just a few blocks from the beach. Joe (the owner) and Volker (property manager) were both very attentive and helpful. They made our trip a breeze. The complex is small and secure with parking available if you choose to rent a car. It has a nice little pool which is a great place to cool off after walking home from the beach or lunch. The condo is very spacious, well equipped, and clean. It is on the third floor which I didn't realize until we arrived, but this is actually a perk as there are no noisy upstairs neighbors and it is a quick flight of stairs up to the roof top terrace.

Perfect location, excelent value!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our staying. The place is clean and well maintained. The management was very helpful and responsive.

Walking distance to the Coca beach which is fabulous by any standard. You can also drive there and park the car near the entrance for free with no problem.

Steps to the 5th Ave. to stroll at night.

Hope to come back the next year again.

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a vacation in this wonderful and very safe area of Mexico.

Fantastic place to stay in PDC

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two friends spent Christmas and New Years in this lovely condo. Great location at the north end of 5th Avenue. Close to all the shops and restaurants without being in the middle of all the craziness! Condo itself was spacious, well equipped and very clean. The roof top terrace was great! Enjoyed many evenings up there enjoying the breeze. New BBQ was a great addition! BBQd some steaks and watched the fireworks on New Years Eve. Owners respond very quickly to any questions you might have and the property manager is only a phone call away. Great condo, great location, great experience!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently vacationed at Loma Mariposa with our three children. The condo was spacious, clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was very convenient to have two washrooms and a washing machine. There was even a juicer to make freshly squeezed orange juice from oranges we bought from the grocery store! The location of the condo is perfect. A very short walk to 5th Avenue leads to the beautiful strip filled with interesting shops and a variety of restaurants. The condo is also a short walk to the beach. After a fun filled day, we could relax on our private balcony or on the roof-top terrace. The condo owner and property manager were both very friendly and promptly addressed our questions. We would highly recommend this property for its location, cleanliness and amenities.
