Everything old is new again

I was a regular visitor and occasional poster some 5 or so years ago, but forgot my login. Something about".. may I have another cerveza.." I think. Anyway, I live in Orlando and have been in and around the Playa area 5 or 6 different times, and am looking to rent a big house or condo for the entire month of July next summer. The first 2 weeks we will be hosting my wifes family from Northern Europe, then the second 2 weeks it will be my adult kids w/spouses. So 10 people at a time, but not always the same 10.

We've rented cars in the Yucatan before so are familiar with the standard precautions, but any advice on the rental would be appreciated. I am looking at PDC, Playacar, Puerto Aventuras, HMB, Akumal, and Tulum on one of the major internet sites that offers renters some decent fraud protection but I would consider other options if the fraud risk is managed.

Thanks in advance and I am already looking forward to next summer.

So we ended up booking through the big international website for the month of July in a oceanside condo in Puerto Aventuras. I'm already online planning for multiple cenote visits and trips to PDC. Many of our family have never spent time in QR, so I cant wait to show them Akumal, Yalku, Coba, XpuHa, Muyil, Valladolid (sp?) etc., etc.

Sounds great. Be interested to hear what else you book. We have been visiting for many years also but somehow always avoided staying in Puerto Aventuras as it seemed more like Florida. We usually base in Playa, Akumal and/or Isla Mujeres and over the years have made trips to Cancun, Cozumel, Mahahual, Xcalak, San Pedro (Belize), Campeche, Valladolid, Izamal, Merida, Ria Lagartos, Progresso and more. So many places and all wonderful! Still more to see....

Enjoy! Think July might be a little warm for us. We usually travel Nov-Jan.

Me too

I was on here a lot about 10 yrs ago, but been pretty sporadic since then. We’re in Playa currently enjoying the amazing weather. I was here 2 summers ago and... well... it was hot. Let’s just leave it at that.
