Ex Aussies here + know a great rental agent?

Hey Peeps!

Really glad to find this community, seems like a great resource and full of friendly people. So thought I'd give a shout out to everyone!

We're an Aussie couple late 20s/early 30s. Been travelling through SA for a few months, arrived in Playa a few days ago, and have decided to stick around for a while

Here to soak up the sun, pig out on tacos and try learning Spanish. Rach is a travel agent, yoga fanatic and raw food cook. I'm more into sports and tech - I write copy for work, so gonna attempt working off a laptop (in a very non-work conducive environment!)

We're planning on staying for 6 months, and because we're such newbies in Playa - hoping you could recommend a good long term rental agent here? Someone trustable, who's got a bit of patience and doesn't mind giving us the rookie pointers (like watching out for aircon costs!)

Cheers, Paul

PS - Rach wanted to ask all the yogis here, where are the best yoga classes in town?

Hey Guys, well I'll have boots on the ground in a few days but I've researched the yoga in advance. Looks like there's an Ashtanga studio called Yogaloft yogaloftplaya, this lady Yoga By The Sea - Playa del Carmen Yoga Retreats and Teacher Training, Mexico and these guys About Yoga by the Way (although they may now be teaching at yogaloft?). There also seems to be some retreat-style offerings and some yoga through gyms. Try the advanced search on this forum for more info on yoga, gyms, apartments or whatever you need. I also recommend Mr. Yucatan's page here: Everything Playa Del Carmen | Information, Restaurant reviews, Hotels, Day trips Cheers!

In my search for Property Managers for long term rentals, I think I can now recommend a few rental agents for you...

North American Standards
MOSKITO
Playa Paradise
PLaya Rentals
Blue Playa Rentals

Good Luck
