A Look Around Town, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

Puerto Aventuras offers a complete range of homes, condos, restaurants, shops, hotels, resorts, entertainment, golf, boating, and beach. To me it is reminiscent of Ft. Lauderdale in Florida or Marina del Rey in California and other similar concept locations around the world - but with the Mexican touch and people. The advantage here is that it is NEVER cold. It may be hot and humid in the summer but, even in the winter, it's NEVER cold. I like that - A LOT!

 This is Villas del Mar condominiums - from my perspective, this is arguably the best property, most centrally located, best sugar white sand beach, best cared-for, most beautiful living facility in the entire town. (Disclosure - it's where we're staying on this trip so I am probably biased).

This private residence club, Porto Bello, offers marina access and views.

Always, the daily walkers and joggers are out along the sidewalks, roads, or beach, enjoying the sun, the breeze, the warmth. I could get used to this.

This is Hacienda Las Palmas.  Many beautiful homes here are available for rent on a weekly basis - anywhere from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands depending on location and size.

Villa Maravilla

Hacienda Corazón.  Their website says this beachfront estate was available over the recent seasonal holidays for $48,000 per week, and next year they advertise $53,000 for the same period for the entire ten-bedroom house. Yes, that price is per week.

I couldn't find a name on this property, maybe it is a private home, but it's along the beachfront and next to many haciendas that are for short-term vacation rental.  Quite nice in any case.


  1. What is the general make up of the population in town? Locals, tourists, ex-pat's?

  2. Seems a pretty international, national, and local mix. I don't really feel like I've seen enough or been around long enough to draw any conclusions yet. I've heard Spanish, English, Russian, Italian just randomly. Commerce is conducted in Spanish but many employees have a few words of English at their command - but we don't rely on or expect English to be understood. Joe
