Playa del Carmen, Yucatan Peninsula
Modern luxury 3 bedroom villa in Playacar, with beautiful views and close to the beach. A tranquil setting with the Playacar bird sanctuary to the front and the secluded private terrace at the rear is separated from the golf course only by trees and plants. This beautiful spot is just a few minutes walk through a small park to the fabulous Caribbean beach of Playacar. The shops and restaurants of 5th Avenue are a similar short walk from Casa Selva Caribe.

Casa Selva Caribe is fortunate to have a fabulous, large swimming pool just steps from the front door, and also a secluded rear patio with views of nature - offering a unique choice of places to relax. Very few villas have so much to offer at both the front and back of the villa!

The large swimming pool has a childrens shallow end. The villa features large rooms, with high ceil...

Three of us stayed in this superbly appointed, fully air-conditioned house in the beautiful Playacar complex. Just a 5-minute walk to the white sandy beach and an equally short journey to the shops and bars meant we could not have been in a better location. The residential area of Playacar was peaceful, safe and a wonderful place to end the...

The house is located in quiet Playcar. The house has everything you need! A pool, wifi, kingsize beds, short walk to the beach (just a few mins) and to town. This is where you want to be if you want to relax in Playa Del Carmen.

About the neighborhood
Retorno Akab is a quiet street leading to villas Playamar, which are next to the Playacar bird sanctuary, just a short walk to the Playacar beach or to the 5th Avenue restaurants in Playa del Carmen. Playacar is a gated community, set around a golf course. There are only trees and plants between the villa and the golf course. Villas Playamar are close to everything - the beach, 5th Avenue, Playacar Golf Course, Reef Beach Club - all within an easy walk, but it is also just far enough away from town to offer real tranquillity and a taste of nature. The area is very safe and secure, great to walk into town in the evening
Getting around
It is easy to walk to both the beach and town, so it is not necessary to rent a car. It is easy to arrange tours to see the major sights in the area and the main supermarket is a short taxi journey. Having said that, if you do rent a car, it will give you great flexibility to explore all the many sights in the area and the great beaches on the Riviera Maya.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Cancun: 39.8 mi
Ferry: Playa del Carmen: 0.5 mi
Transfer from Cancun airport is very straightforward, taking 40 - 60 minutes. Transfer direct to your villa can be arranged by our property managers, or there are a number of specialist airport transfer taxi services. Regular taxis are also a good option. If you plan to rent a car for your vacation, it is very easy to collect at Cancun airport and driving to the villa is easy - we will provide detailed directions. Although a car is not necessary as you can easily walk to 5th Avenue and the beach, it does offer much greater flexibility to explore the whole Riviera Maya. Car parking is easy and there is allocated space.
