Appealing locations, exceptional sea views and luxury amenities make condo rentals the ideal choice for vacationers in Playa del Carmen. Especially designed to offer a cool retreat from the dazzling beaches, hacienda-style condos combine tiled floors and wide verandahs, deluxe kitchens and tropical landscapes. For group getaways and family vacations, spacious condo rentals offer excellent value, access to every “Maya Riviera” pleasure and provide a quiet retreat at day’s end.
Along the aqua blue waters off Playa del Carmen, snorkelers and swimmers, divers and sailors enjoy hours of exploration and pure enjoyment. Catamarans and jet skis are available to rent, and dive shops and adventure guides offer equipment, boat rides and diving trips to offshore reefs. Local eco parks dot the landscape, where sheltered lagoons provide a different kind of snorkeling trip. Just 30 miles south of Playa del Carmen, Xel-Ha is one such aquatic sanctuary - designated as “one of the most important Natural Wonders of Mexico.” You can choose from inclusive packages for a variety of benefits or opt for the $15 admission price that includes free inner tubes and life vests.
Also to the south of Playa del Carmen, the ruins of Tulum provide dramatic insight to Mayan life. The walled city includes sixty building structures crowned by the outstanding “El Castillo” (the Castle) on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean. The craft market has carvings, paintings and religious artifacts, and you may be treated to one of the Mayan Pole Flyers regular performances. When you return to Playa del Carmen, be sure to cap off the day with dinner at Yaxche Maya Restaurant. Though a bit pricey, the restaurant offers authentic old world Mayan cuisine in a distinctly sophisticated setting.
The resort city exhibits local flavor and international flair along its famous Quinta Avenida. Shops and galleries mix with entrepreneurial vendors who offer handcrafted goods, jewelry and clothing. Many open-air cafes and restaurants deliver a pleasant mix of regional Mexican fare and international cuisine from French and Italian to Argentinean and Japanese.
With full furnishings and amenities and enjoyable space and privacy, vacation rentals deliver exceptional value. You can make your selection with confidence, as unbiased user reviews fully describe the many rental choices available.
