Should you have a large family or group of friends, imagine a week in a beachfront vacation villa. Savor morning coffee on your bedroom balcony overlooking the aquamarine sea. From the gourmet kitchen, your full-time staff may serve breakfast on the patio with a panoramic view of the water. No doubt you’ll enjoy a swim in the heated pool and an occasional cocktail at the swim-up bar. Play tennis on the island’s only private court, and have a chat with the staff regarding your dinner preferences. If that’s a bit grand for your tastes, you may choose from comfortable condos and smaller villas. In every instance, you will discover the many privileges and exceptional value that vacation home rentals deliver.
This petite island – just 5 miles long and 1 mile wide – is but a brief ferry ride from lively Cancun. It is precisely the peace and tranquility, gorgeous coral-reefed waters and silky white beaches that attract water sports lovers. Dive centers, charter fishing and sailing compete for attention with upscale shopping, delightful restaurants and traditional beachcombing. The island even has its own Mayan ruin and sculpture garden. While archeological snobs might frown on the rather overrun ruin itself, the natural setting at the end of the island has breathtaking views, gorgeous sunrises and paths through the jagged cliffs to the water. If you delight in grander ruins, you can arrange a tour from Cancun to Chichen Itza. Playa Norte is the most popular beach, by far, and you need only walk or rent a golf cart and head west. Kayaks, snorkeling gear, lounges and umbrellas all are available for rent.
Travelers throughout the world continue to discover the value, comfort and convenience of home and condo rentals. Whether vacationing as a couple, family or group of friends, you will find that home rentals afford plenty of space, every conceivable amenity and well-equipped kitchens for enjoyable home dining. Hotel stays simply can’t compare with the many advantages of choosing your own special vacation home away from home.
