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.

If you have a car, we have parking.
Other Things to Note

Sandro's place was great! Everything was as described, nice peaceful location away from 5th ave, but still close to everything. Sandro responded immediately to any questions we had. Great host!
My boyfriend and I just got home from a week long stay at Sandro's condo in Playa Del Carmen. The condo looked exactly like it did in the pictures and was very clean. There was a nice little balcony that we enjoyed using and the bed was very comfortable. The apartment was in a very nice and quiet location. It took us about 5 minutes to walk to the beach, where we rented chairs at Be Kool Beach Club 2 out of the three days we spent on the beach. There also is a soccer field/track complex right near his condo that is great for exercising! We were able to walk to Mega to get groceries and other items that we needed in about 10 minutes, and if we had needed, there are taxi's waiting there to bring us back, but we always just walked. A couple recommendations for food nearby would definitely be Papa Charly's, which is a small little place with handmade pasta that is THE BEST we've ever had. We actually ate there two nights during our week long stay. I hear that they have a good lunch special, but we only went there for dinner. We also ate at El Fogon, which is authentic mexican food and right across the street from La Mega...also delicious! Sandro helped up set up a tour for the ruins and our airport transfer. He was very quick at responding and helped to answer all of my questions. I would recommend this place to any friends going to PDC.
Excelente afitrión! Amable y atento, siempre en contacto. Muy agradable experiencia, muy recomendable su lugar, gran ubicación. Sin duda volveremos!
Had a wonderful stay in Playa del Carmen at the apt. The place was clean and comfortable with all accommodations necessary for a nice stay. Sandro kept us with us well with clear communication. I am very pleased with our stay and would definitely visit again in the future. Thank you Sandro!
The apartment was initially a little hard to find, arriving from the ADO bus terminal. The location ended up being very convenient to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. I would stay here again.
Sandro was a very attentive host. He gave us loads of tips about playa and the area and helped us with the rest of our trip. The flat is very cosy and well equipped. It is very close to the center but hidden away from 5th crowded, noisy 5th avenue.
