Mexico Vacation Rentals – Finding Your Ideal Rental on the Riviera Maya

When you start planning your vacations on the Riviera Maya, one of the points you will want to consider most carefully is the Mexico vacation rentals condo or home you will enjoy your stay in, and its location.  The following are a few points to consider which can help you make this choice easily, (which, incidentally, are not too different from one possible way of looking for Mexico real estate in the area!)

Size

Playa del Carmen and the surrounding communities have condos and homes on or near the beachfront of many shapes and sizes.  Renting is usually considered the best option for small groups of vacationers who can enjoy a private property to themselves.  It is also a good option for a couple, for example, that simply prefers to get a little more for their money – a little more space, a little privacy, a little more style and a little personal taste.  For some, a cozy garden condo would do the trick; for others (even just 2 people) a large, spacious penthouse or villa would be a nice touch.

 

Nearby Beaches

One factor that many people forget to check is which beachfront areas are actually a walk away from their rental.  Since all the beaches in the Riviera Maya are simply splendid, with soft, white sand and warm, bright-turquoise colored water, it is somewhat understandable.  However, there are some beaches which are isolated out in the jungle, with nothing more than a cabin or two on them.  Others are in the heart of the downtown tourism area with trendy beach clubs.  Wouldn’t you rather be closer to the beach that suits your tastes best?

Location

Other location factors need to be considered; is there a supermarket nearby? Is that important to you?  Are there restaurants, bars, cafes and live music venues a walk away?  Or perhaps you prefer jungle where you’ll see monkeys and foxes.  Maybe you’re a golf lover; Playa del Carmen is considered to be Latin America’s golf capital and there are a number of professionally designed golf courses with home and condos right next door.

For any rental you consider, take some time, research these issues.  Look up descriptions of communities and beachfront areas on the internet.  Ask the rental agent about the surrounding area.  Some details may be small, but can make a big difference during your vacation.
