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
Playa (that's what we call Playa del Carmen), is the ideal spot for medium to long term vacations. One week, one month, one year, that's what I did, I came for a timeless vacation, that was 17 years ago....

Si quieren ahorrar este departamente es perfecto para cocinar el desayuno. la quinta avenida esta a 4 calles y mamitas a 6 cuadras.
We had a great stay! Thank you so much! A wonderful apartment within easy walking distance to the beach (we recommend hanging out at Kool for the afternoon). If you are looking for an experience other than what a resort offers, give this a try. We enjoyed 30 Ave even more than 5th. Wifi has a very good signal if you need to do any business while you are on holidays.
We had a wonderfull time in Playa. We stayed 15 days in Sandro's appartment. The location is perfect, close to everythingt in a quiet area ( we slept windows opened). 5 minutes walking distance to the 5th av and the Mega store. The appartment is very nice, better than the pictures and well organized. Sandro is a very good host. He was there to welcome us and gave us informations about Playa del Carmen. We surely will book this place again in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a great location. Easy walk to 5th avenue and the beach but also close to the Mega (the super market) and a Wal-Mart.
Lots of very good and reasonably priced restaurants located nearby. It is also located in a quiet and safe neighborhood.
The apartment had everything we needed including a kitchen with fridge/freezer, stove/oven, pots/pans and cooking utensils.
Sandro was a wonderful host and answered all our questions promptly and offered suggestions and advice that only a local could provide.
We would not think twice about staying here again. Perfect for travelers looking to avoid the standard Mexico resort options and pricey condos.
You'll love it!
Do not hesitate to book this fantastic apartment! Comfort and convenience at a great rate…any vacationer’s dream. The apartment is perfect, everything is brand new and modern inside and out. The photos do not do it justice. The king bed is really comfortable, there’s an abundance of closet space and the kitchen has everything you might need from your morning coffee to elaborate meals…Sandro has thought of everything! We ate all our meals on our big private balcony overlooking the tropical trees and the charcoal BBQ in the backyard.
This condo really is located in the best possible spot: the beach is an easy stroll away, the shopping and high end food of 5th avenue are just down the street, and if you prefer local food some of the best restaurants in town (Las Aguachiles, Los Tarascos, El Fogon, Bamba Jarocha, etc.) are right up the street! You’re not stuck in the tourist cheesiness but also not isolated away from the action. We walked to the amazing produce market, DAK, as well as Mega and Walmart (both supercentres). Less than 2 dollars gets you home in a taxi with your cases of beer!
Sandro is a great guy, the best contact you could hope to have in Playa. He is friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. We stayed for two months and were sorry to go…you’re the best, Sandro! As someone who always bases my bookings on reviews, trust me when I say you be will be thrilled with your choice of this apartment!

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
