Vacationing in Playa del Carmen?  What’s your preference for a place to stay – a beachfront condo?  An eco-home in the jungle?  If you choose vacation rentals, you can choose!

Main Text

If you have vacations coming up and your destination is Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya (the name of the surrounding area), an option you might want to consider is a Playa del Carmen vacation rental.  The area offers a very large variety of styles and locations, and gives you the choice of choosing the property type, size and style that suits your tastes best!  Consider the following variety of styles.

High-rise condos

In Cancun vacation rentals, there are plenty of high-rise condos available, with splendid views of the white beaches, turquoise water and the Caribbean Sea beyond.  These offer access to all the restaurants, bars, clubs, movie theaters and shopping for which this part of Cancun has become famous.

European-style apartments

One of the distinct lures of Playa del Carmen is the low-rise, European style of the downtown area and even surrounding communities.  The streets are narrow and the condo buildings have a beautiful and tasteful design that, all combined, offer an old-world charm.  Of course, these are right on the beach, or just around the corner.

These condos offer you as a vacationer a downtown lifestyle where you can walk to cafes, galleries, restaurants, clubs and more!

Beachfront homes

The last two options are primarily about condos on the beachfront.  In the south end of Playa del Carmen (Playacar) there are beautiful homes to be rented on the beachfront.  Tulum vacation rental can be found directly on the beachfront in the nearby village of Akumal.  Homes directly on the beachfront offer a good deal of privacy, not to mention comfort and luxury.


Gated communities

Some renters prefer the privacy and quiet of gated communities.  Many of these have controlled access and exclusive beach clubs.  They also tend to be greener and have more space than the downtown options.  In fact, sometimes vacation rentals can be found right within resorts; condos are sold to individual owners and they rent them out to other vacationers!  Again, the advantage is that you can choose the unit best for your needs.

Golf-course or marina homes

Those who love golf or boating (or just views of waterways and boats) can rent homes or condos with views of these locations!



In Tulum, eco-homes are a big thing.  Cabins and even near-luxury homes (without certain services) can be found out in the bush along the beachfront where the quiet beach, light of the moon and sound of waves lapping against the sand are the only distractions at night.

If you are vacationing in the Riviera Maya, a rental will give you much more flexibility that hotel packages; be sure to explore this option.; Mexico's Leading Network of Specialists for Finding and Purchasing Mexican Properties Safely
