Interaction with Guests
I live upstair and if you need anything you can just ring my bell and come over for a coffee. I always like to know new people.
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....

Awesome apartment, clean, spacious and well located (safe & quiet away from 5th Avenue). Sandro & hosts are very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Recommended for singles through to families. Only problem was that I could only stay for a few days! Thanks.
Sandro was a very attentive and accommodating host. Towels were replaced regularly, the backyard was charming, a nice place to hang out between leaving and staying, and he was especially helpful when we were in between different rental spots and needed our luggage kept in a safe place until it became available. The water in the shower does not stay warm very long, but it's not a problem considering the warm weather outside. I recommend this spot for it's safe and convenient location as well. Thanks!
Super sweet apartment in Playa del Carmen. We wish we could've stayed longer but already had other plans. Sandro was very helpful and welcoming and easy to communicate with when making our plans. A great spot!
Ottimo appartamento a due blocchi Dal centro -quinta avenida- dotato di tutto , dall aria condizionata al microonde al bidet
Unico neo: doccia spaziosa ma con getto troppo lento e poco forte .
Mariella and Klaus were excellent hosts. The apartment was very nice and was as it is pictured in the photos. The kitchen had appliances, silverware, all plates and dishes that you would need staying for a short or long period of time. My wife and I stayed for a month and were very happy with everything. 5th street and the beach are a short walk. Also there are a few markets and Walmart within walking distances as well. Fast internet speeds that allowed both of us to (website hidden) our families at the same time.
Only issues we had with the listing is the amenities tab shows a check mark by access to a free gym, this is not the case. The closest gym we could find was "The Gym" on 5th street and costs a lot for people on a short stay. Also we didn't see any bicycles for guest use.
We were very pleased with our stay. The apartment is very cozy, clean and equipped with everything you need. There is a spacious balcony, where we took our breakfasts and dried clothes. We felt at home. Sandro is a great host. Klaus and Mariella were very-very friendly and very helpful. They gave us some useful tips.
The location of the apartment is really good. It's quite close from the supermarkets and just a few minutes walk from the 5th Av. We would highly recommend you to stay in Viva Maria apartments!
We loved our stay at Klaus and Mauriella's apartment! It was very clean, comfortable and in a great location that is only a few minutes walk from the beach. Both Klaus and Mauriella were very nice and helpful in providing information about the area. We would definitely stay there again!

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
