Getting to the Riviera Maya is very easy. Cancun International Airport (code CUN) is located 52 km north of Villa Aqua (Playa del Carmen) and is served by all major International Airlines with direct or nonstop service from almost anywhere around the world.
Once you arrive to Cancun airport, we provide complimentary transportation to the villa (1 round trip for stays of 4 or more nights).
Cozumel Airport (code CZM) may also be considered an international access to this region but it is on the island and you will need to take a 30 min ferry to Playa del Carmen where Villa Aqua is located and we can arrange your transportation from the dock to the house.
Cancun International Airport:
Villa Aqua is located just a few minutes walking distance to the beautiful beaches of Playacar Phase I and Playa del Carmen downtown.
Playacar is an upscale-gated community located just south of Playa del Carmen's main urban area. Playacar is approximately 40 minutes drive from Cancun International airport.
The resort of Playacar is the ideal spot for families wanting a little bit of everything. It is divided into two phases, the first borders the ocean, the second, where Villa Aqua is located, lining the 18 hole golf course designed by Robert Von Hagge, and exposes luxury resorts, private homes and a couple of small shopping centers.
The Xaman-Ha Aviary is also located within Playacar Phase II, and contains more than 200 animals of 45 different species; besides birds they also have butterflies, iguanas and small mammals.
You will also find some remains of Mayan Ruins along Playacar Phase I and Phase II.
Playa del Carmen
Situated right in the heart of the Riviera Maya, just 50 km south from Cancun's International Airport, Playa del Carmen is the region's top destination for shopping, dining and nightlife. Playa, as everybody calls it, provides everything one could wish for, in a Caribbean location: White sand beaches, amazing golf, water sports, nature adventure, cultural and recreational centers and much more.
After your day at the beach, head into town and take a stroll along the pedestrian Fifth Avenue strip, locally known as Quinta Avenida. La Quinta is the place to see and be seen, with its cosmopolitan atmosphere of joy, security, and harmony, by day it's packed with people browsing the shops and boutiques; by night roving musicians entertain diners in the many restaurants and bars. Playa del Carmen is one of the Riviera Maya's top culinary destinations where you'll find everything from street tacos to five-star establishments serving up their own unique takes on traditional Mayan and international cuisine. As the evening progresses, La Quinta gyrates to the sounds of rock, salsa and reggae as people flock to the bars and nightclubs. The beach clubs get in on the action too, hosting dance parties that rage on until the early morning hours and Villa Aqua is just minutes walking distance to all this fun, right in Playacar, a high-end development complete with golf course, all-inclusive luxury resorts and gated residences.
Ferry service connects the Caribbean island of Cozumel with Playa del Carmen so you can easily enjoy a day trip out to the island for some scuba diving or snorkeling. You can also arrange day trips to visit ancient archaeological sites, ecological parks and cenotes.
Whether you are here to relax and unravel, or to immerse yourself in an abundance of cultural or adrenaline filled activities, the possibilities are endless and will definitely exceed your expectations.
