This waterfront house in Puerto Aventuras resort is located just 75 yards from the beach and 5 minute walk to attractions: Dolphin Discovery, fishing/snorkeling fleet, restaurants, golf, tennis and more. The dolphin show is free to watch and such pools are surrounded by good restaurants. No need to have a car or use a taxi inside the resort.
The Bed and Breakfast style was great with very friendly hosts. They suggested tour trips at a reasonable cost (less than established commercial prices). True, private tours must be paid in cash (no credit cards).
The tours close by (within one hour or less): Ruins in Tulum and Coba; the turtles in Akumal; Playa del Carmen Fifth Avenue (just 20 minutes away); cenotes (fresh water pools in the jungle); fishing or snorkeling trips; trips to Cozumel and much more.
