costa maya vacation trip
The last weekend we just went to visit some friends in Mahahual, the place
to go when you visit the Costa Maya. Located just 180 miles south of Playa
del Carmen and the Riviera Maya, this tourist destination has seen immense
growth and is a great place to visit, if you like it tranquil and relaxed.
On the other side, it has been a great spot to invest into Real Estate for
foreigners interested in buying Beachfront Real Estate.
So we were there last time a few years ago and were really curious to see
how the place had developed and what we would do there. We only had a
weekend so the only thing we were sure of, was that we would try hard to
enjoy every single second.
Our first stop was at the amazing hotel of Luna de Plata. Just click here to find their website
The rooms were very clean and had enough space to host our small family of tree. Actually they had already a extra bed prepared for our daughter upon arrival. Apart from offering probably the best hospitality in the Costa Maya, they have a great restaurant and on our welcome dinner we ordered the seafood platter with catch of today, plus a lot of very nicely marinated shrimps, squids and naturally a superb lobster tail. Most probably that was one of the best meals we ever had and on top of this they prepared an amazing bolognesa for our little one. You can use their private beach and sit on one of their beach beds if you like to watch the stars and the perfect Full Moon in the Costa Maya.
On our first day we went fishing and snorkeling in Placer, where you find Million Dollar Homes and a large community of US and Canadian owners and many Europeans, who offer dives at the amazing reefs or excursions to Chinchorro, which is one of the most magic places in Mexico. Ezekiel and Dario from Luna de Plata can help you with all the necessary info on these tours.
In the evening we visited Jats’a Ja Festival, which is a celebration for the rebirth of Mahahual after a hurricane a few years ago. Part of it was a food expo, where you could try the culinary highlights of most of the top restaurants in town. Here is the link for it, if you like to know a bit more about this great event.
Foe our last day, we planned just a quick trip to the beach, but working in real estate in Playa del Carmen for so many years, one cannot keep its eyes off the beautiful homes at the beach.
We actually drove the beach road south towards Xcalak and stopped at a small hotel called Almaplena
Whow, what a retreat. You need to visit it in person to understand. If you know the perfect beaches of Tulum, you will definitely enjoy this spot. It is even more virgin than Tulum, we jumped into the ocean and felt like we would be the first people ever enjoy this turquoise clear water.It is hard to believe, but living in Mexico for so may years, having the beach in the ocean in walking distance every single day of our life’s, I was literally knocked out by how beautiful this place is.
And as I said, we checked out some properties for sale and will confirm
prices and paperwork in the next days and than start uploading Condos and
Homes for Sale in Mahahual and Costa Maya for you and start uploading
listings very soon with unbelievable low prices for real estate close to the
beach just south of Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya.
