Viva Maria is located in the very heart of Little Italy, 3 blocks from 5th avenue, near enough to walk to the center but far enough not to be disturbed by nightlife sounds. Shopping centers, minimarkets and supermarket are a few blocks away, at walking distance. The aerea is very secure, no problems walking around.
If you prefere the real not touristic Mexico, there's pleinty of small mexican restaruants 3 blocks from the house.
Two blocks from our place you'll find all public transportations, buses, minibuses and taxi pass by all day and night. Buses and minibuse cost 25 cents per person, taxis 25 pesos per ride within city center limits (1 U$=m 14 pesos) 35 pesos if you go very far. You won't need that anyway, as we are near to everything, go out walking, use bikes or skates or moped as we all do here, everything can be easily rented, just ask.
If you have a car, we have parking.
Other Things to Note

No tenemos mas que buenos comentarios sobre nuestra experiencia durante la estadía en el departamento. Desde que llegamos, nos recibieron como en casa, muy amables y serviciales. El departamento era lo que esperábamos y más. Estaba limpio, con flores frescas y equipado tal como se describe en el anuncio. Sandro y Shanti nos recibieron al llegar del aeropuerto, dispusimos del espacio sin inconveniente alguno. La ubicación es perfecta cerca de todo: a pocas cuadras de la peatonal y playa, pero tranquilo, más si viajas con niños pequeños. Lo recomiendo mucho y esperamos volver pronto, sin duda lo volvería a alquilar.
gracias por tus lindos comentarios y tus buenos consejos, tienes toda razon, la humedad es el gran problema que tenemos y tenemos que aplicarnos mas para resolverlo. Espero vuelvas pronto, es lindo tener gente como ustedes en nuestra casa. Saludos a toda la familia, hasta pronto.
The apt. Was nice and the kitchen was fully equipped. There was very little hot wather in the shower, which is a big minus.
We haven't seen the host even once during the whole stay.
Summary: very nice place to stay, quiet, good wifi, good a/c and clean.
Thanks a lot and I want to apologize for the hot water giving you trouble, that has been fixed.
We care about our guest's privacy that's why our guest berely see us, that's our policy in order to be different from an hotel where guest's activities are always known by attendands.
Excellent place to stay! Nice location and very clean. Hosts are super nice and will help you with whatever you need. Highly recommended.
Apartment was immaculate and exactly as presented in the photos. A very comfortable king size bed. It is approximately a 15 - 20 minute walk into central Playa del Carmen (5th avenue).
A wonderful stay all around. A great backyard view while eating breakfast and it was handy to have a kitchen to cook meals. We Look forward to staying again.
Great location to stay in Playa. Apartment was clean and very comfortable. I would definitely come back.
Sandro is a great host, we enjoyed our stay there, few minutes to the 5th avenue and a few more to the Mamitas or Kool beach club. I will highly recommend this place, clean, nice garden, safe neighborhood and great location.
Thank you again Sandro
This suite if fine for two people. It is about 15-20 minutes walk from the beach. Several good less pricey restaurants within a block and away from the busy-ness of 5th Ave, which we appreciated. It can be a little noisy being on the ground floor at the front of the unit but we spent most of our time at the beach and on day trips and so it was fine for our purposes.
The host Sandro was friendly and brought bikes to the yard for our use.

Hi, I'm Sandro, I'm italian and y fell in love with Playa del Carmen, I've been here for the last twelve years and I love my easy life riding bicycle from home to work or to the beach, no need of a car, every morning I walk to the beach at 7 am, swim a little and then I go to work, 1 block from the beach, three blocks from home.
I'd like to share my experience and my house with people from everywhere, tu casa is 5 minutes walk to Mamita's Beach, Playa Mamitas.
I came here like everybody and stayed in an hotel, got back to work.
Once I came to Playa for 2 weeks and rented a place near here.
That was long time ago.
I'm still here, thanks Playa.
See you here.
Sono innamorato di Playa del Carmen, della mia vita senza auto, in bicicletta da casa al lavoro alla spiaggia, tutte le mattine vado a farmi una nuotata prima di andare in ufficio.
Voglio condividere la mia esperienza con ospiti di tutto il mondo, la mia casa si trova a 5 minuti di cammino, 3 in bici, da Playa Mamitas
