S203A: Air Conditioning & Free WiFi

Apartment - Private room · Agua Retorno, Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico

This air conditioned room with double bed is part of a modern apartment situated next to a park, near the entrance to the hotel zone. Public transport and taxis are right outside. We have the fastest Internet you'll find in Cancun.

The Space

Your room has air conditioning, a ceiling fan, built-in closets, queen sized bed, black-out curtains, a terrace and bathroom which is shared with one adjacent room.

Guest Access

The rooftop pool is a great place to get a tan. It's very private and a cool breeze makes sunbathing very comfortable. The view is simply amazing; you can see across the lagoon towards the beaches of the hotel zone.

The kitchen is fully equipped with an American fridge which provides unlimited filtered water and ice cubes, a microwave, an oven, a stove, pots, pans and pretty much anything else you might need. You are welcome to use anything, as long as dirty dishes and pots don't linger around for too long.

You are free to use the washing machine and dryer. It's free of charge as long as you don't do laundry more than once every three days.

The Internet connection is unlike any other you will find in Cancun. I have the fastest connection available from two separate companies to ensure maximum uptime because I need a reliable connection to do my job. I doubt you will find better Internet anywhere else in the country.

You can use the 55 inch LED smart TV on to watch YouTube videos, browse the web or watch any movie/series from my collection of over 1,000 titles.

Interaction with Guests

I also live in the building so you can always come and see me. Marco is the administrator so he is the main point of contact.

The Neighborhood

LOCATION

This new and very modern apartment is centrally located, only 5 minutes from the new center of Cancun: Plaza Las Americas is a huge mall with over 200 stores, a cinema complex, a huge gym and a supermarket. Despite its central location in Avenida Tulum, one the main streets of Cancun, the area is very tranquil thanks to its proximity to a park. Right outside the building you can find several restaurants, barbers, beauty salons, convenience stores (OXXO) and all major banks, which means it's a very safe area.

GETTING HERE

It's very easy to get here thanks to it's close proximity to the ADO bus station. A bus departs from the airport every 30 minutes and costs less than $5. Alternatively, a taxi can be arranged for about 20 USD (instead of the normal price which is 60 USD). I provide this driver a lot of business so he will not haggle about the price and drop you off directly at the front door.

ACTIVITIES

Beach lovers will be glad to know the bus stop is only a three minute walk across the park. It takes less than a dollar and only about 10 minutes to arrive to the pristine white beaches Cancun is famous for. I usually go to Playa Marlin on Saturdays to play Ultimate Frisbee and to Playa Forum on Sundays for some volleyball and as my guests you are of course welcome to join! If you're into working out you'll be glad to hear you can work out for free in the park near the entrance of the hotel zone (a five minute walk) where they have recently installed workout equipment next to the playground.

In case you'd like to go on excursions to visit Mayan ruins or any of the vast selection of tourist attractions in the area, I have a friend who lives in this building who can help you out. He owns a travel agency and can get you a discount compared to buying directly from the tour operators.

Getting around

BY BUS
Buses pass very close to the building and every five minutes or so there is a bus which can take you to the the hotel zone or downtown. Generally the price is between 5 and 15 pesos.

TAXIS
I've never had to wait for more than 5 minutes for a taxi to pass by in Av. Tulum, which is just a few steps from the apartment. Taxis cost 25 pesos for any location downtown and between 80 and 150 pesos for the hotel zone, depending on where you're going. Going to the airport might take some negotiating but usually 150 pesos should be enough.

BY CAR
There is plenty of space to park your car right outside the building. There are security cameras pointed there so it's quite safe to do so.

WALKING
The nice thing about the apartment is its location. Everything you might need in terms of shopping, banking or eating is within 10 minutes or less walking distance.

About
I'm Ken, born in 1987 in Belgium but currently living in Cancun, Mexico. I speak Dutch, English and Spanish. I understand some French and German, but make sure to speak very slowly and clearly :-) I'm crazy about sports, technology and travel. I practice gymnastics, parkour, squash, frisbee, volleyball, skydiving, snorkeling and from time to time salsa dancing. I own an international software company and a local modeling/events agency so during weekdays I'm usually quite busy, however I'll gladly show you around Cancun during weekends if you'd like. My favorite place on earth is... Cancun! (surprise surprise). It's only logical since I can work from anywhere in the world as long as there is internet connectivity that I'd choose my favorite location. I love going to cenotes and to the beach whenever I get a chance.
