About the neighborhood
We are located very conveniently to 5th Av, the beach and shopping. We are 1.5 blocks to 5th Av and 2.5 blocks to the beach. We have a very quiet condo in the rear of the complex that is not on the street. So, you will enjoy a nice quiet stay. Also, we are very close to shopping ... there is a WalMart and Mega (Mexico's answer to a Super Target) only 2 blocks away.
Getting around
No need for a rental car ... but if you have one, we have secure reserved parking.

We are within close walking distance of everything in Playa ... the beach and the lively 5th Av with shopping and restaurants and plenty of night life.

Our condo, Casa Dorothea is the perfect central location.
