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 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 large private bath and balcony. A third half bath is close to large living and dining area. Our condo has marble floors and granite counter tops throughout. 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 below. Lots of light! Central air conditioning, 3 HD LCD TVs. 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, Argentinian steak houses and more, 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
Our family vacation to this spot was perfect. This was our first international excursion with all the expected anxieties when traveling with children but they all melted away stepping over the threshold. The condo is soothing and comfortable. We enjoyed the building, grounds and personnel. The owners are a joy to communicate with. The rental manager assisted us with snorkeling and Chichen Itza tours at very competitive rates, surprising! She even helped us find an extra night at another site when our return flight was cancelled. Just so helpful and professional. I will only briefly mention how nice the location is - beach, restaurants, shopping all very walkable even barefooted. I unreservedly recommend this condo for your vacation.
What a wonderful, comfortable, beautiful place to stay on vacation! We walked to the beach every morning, took strolls in the town, and ate at wonderful restaurants nearby! Very romantic setting, gorgeous accommodations! Everything we wanted was there.
The photos look just like the real thing, the owners were super helpful and pleasant. I highly recommend the property!
Thanks again! Mike and Karen
I stayed with my family for 14 days in the apartment. It was 14 fantastic days, with sun every day! A very proper apartment, a wonderful garden with a big pool, a lot of relaxing beds, 2 spa and a very sweet and gentle couple of workers, cleaning the garden and the pool every day.
I can so much recommend this apartment for almost any kind of travel in Playa.
Me and my family wants to get back as soon as possible.
We looked forward to stay in the apartment after seeing the pictures, and we were not disappointed when we came to Play. It was just fantastic, - so quiet, so clean and with one minutes walk to the indescribable beach.
There is a long way from Denmark to Play, but it was all that worth!
We had a little problem with a lost key after a few days, but in half an hour it was fixed, - thanks to Bruce and Karla. And all my contacts with Bruce, the owner, has been with a perfect kind of humor and kindness.
I recommend this apartment so very much!

Wonderful place, beautiful setting. Nice small complex, great pool. Went every morning to the beach for a walk and swim, only a 1 minute walk to the beach, what a gem this condo!! The condo is right on 5th avenue with all the shop and restaurants, great to watch the people go by! This was really a vacation!!.
The welcome book in the condo explains everything in the area and all the good places to eat, made it really easy for us. And the staf is very helpfull. So looking for a great holyday without any worries... stop searching, this it it! We will be back!!!
The condo complex is gorgeous with a fantastic swimming pool and hot tubs. Management has a visible presence on the property and are helpful with routine questions. The location is perfect for exploring 5th Ave. where all of the "action" is; and also has some more-laid-back restaurants a few steps away.
Our unit was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed. For snorkeling go to Akumal and pay the $12 at Yal Ku, it is well worth it. For public beach we liked Kool, less than 2 minutes by foot.
We loved it. 5 minutes to the most gorgeous beach. The pool, hot tubs and general outside area was great. The staff at the condo were very helpful and available 24/7. The location was great and a nice walk form the lively 5th ave night life. The condo was spacious and having 2 1/2 bathrooms was great for a family. Wireless network was available, Great TV to watch if required. I would recommend this place for a fantastic holiday.
Dozens of ancient Mayan ruins, some of which are huge but not well known to public, diving and snorkeling (Palancar Reef - second largest in world), cave diving, Xian Kan Biospheere Reserve just south, in town shopping from luxurious to local handicraft, restaurants of virtually any cuisine walking distance, Spanish schools, more...
