Woo Hoo! We just found a great list of family vacation rentals in the Rivera Maya that is diverse enough for any family. Each family has very specific needs and we think this short list will make your family vacation easy to plan and even easier to secure. If we did not hit the nail on the head, know that there are more vacation rentals where these came from. Choose from beach vacation rentals in Playa del Carmen, SOliman Bay, Akumal and more! Love this list and hope you love it as well! How do we know these are a good choice? We took a poll from our reservations specialists and this is the list they came up with based on feedback form our guests!

Playa del Carmen Vacation Rental – quiet but close to Playa activities

casa grande playa del carmen

Casa Grande is grand, and if you are looking for a larger vacation rental that will house your immediate family and grandparents or aunts and uncles, this could be it. 4 bedrooms, sleeps 9, across the street from the beach and a direct sea view, a private pool and lost of living space that will make everyone happy. What we love about any Playa del Carmen vacation villa is the amount of activities, restaurants and fun things to do right in the city. The beach is always the focal point, but 5th Avenue is full of interesting people, food, and shopping. If you have older children that want to spread their wings a bit, Playa is safe and the young adults can venture out to explore on their own. Younger kids will love the playgrounds, the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave, theĀ  colorful culture and the super friendly people. If grandma and grandpa give you a night off, there are over 700 restaurants that you can enjoy and have an adult night out! Casa Grande worth a look.
