The brand new, very luxurious condo complex Via 38 is located in Playa del Carmen, on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. It is just south of Cancun and it's international airport. Locally called "Playa", this is a small city along the best beaches in the Caribbean. Rates listed are at a large discount for the first year of availabilty!
Via 38 is brand new, especially luxurious and spacious. There is an exceptionally large, open, landscaped common area with semi-Olympic pool, hot tubs, gazebos, gym, private underground parking, and manned, 24 hour security. Our unit, A-13, is on the second floor, with it's own private elevator. Large at 1150 square feet (125 square meters), it has two bedrooms each with private bath and balcony. A third half bath is close to large living and dining area. Full kitchen with all appliances, granite counters and bar look out thru glass wall with wide sliding doors and curtains, then past the extra large front balcony down to the pool area. Lots of light! Central air conditioning, HD LCD TV. Our host agency can arrange anything: tours, car rental, diving and snorkeling, meals prepared in Condo, nurse, more. A one minute walk to the beach. We are in the quiet end of town, on famous 5th Avenue. Stroll down the pedestrian mall, by shops, restaurants, and coffee houses.
Unlike so many travel destinations, Playa does not feel "touristy". A height limit of three stories eliminates towering hotels as in Cancun. Yet Playa is much nicer: very international, it has everything from luxury shopping to local handicrafts, restaurants of every cuisine from fine seafood to French, Italian, Japanese, and Argentinian steak houses to sandwiches, vegetarian, inexpensive local fare, and still more. Explore nearby Mayan ruins, (Tulum, Citchen Itza, Xcaret, or, others equally as large, but lesser known - and less crowded), Xian Kan Biosphere Reserve, Palancar Reef (second largest in world), Cozumel Island. Diving, snorkeling, swimming in warm tropical water, complete relaxation on white sand beaches. Nap in shade by the pool. Have a local chilled cocktail. For a few days, or a month, A-13 in Via 38 is time very well spent.
Linda and I had a wonderful time in Playa in August. The apartment A13 was lovely, furnished in good taste
and we found everything in Via 38 very pleasant. Playa is a gastronomic paradise...and we wined and dined in a state
Friends of ours, the Salcedos opened a Mexican restaurant called "Don P.P.". on 40th. near 12th St. and the food was
superb, the atmosphere excellent.
The feather in the hat though was your lovely condo. We can't wait to return there. It
was just perfect, as were the facilities in Via38 and especially the warmth and caring of the staff. Special kudos to Rocio,
in the administration office who was just wonderful...helped us out of a sticky situation where I packed everything I needed
for Playa, EXCEPT a charger cord for my MacBookPro. It was impossible to obtain one there, but Rocio managed to help
us out, where Manuel, the owner of Piola restaurant lent us his charger whenever the laptop needed charging.
Can't say enough about our short stay other than your condo was absolutely perfect.
Best regards, Paul & Linda
