Beautiful, large - 2 bdrm, 2 bthrm, unit on the Canal leading to the Caribbean
Enjoy the boats going by as you vacation at our lovely 2 bdrm 2 bthrm condo located on the Canal that leads to the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy the lovely breeze while lazing on the patio, or lawn beds beside the pool. All within the view of the boat dock and canal complete with Tropical Fish. Our condo is over 1700 square feet and is very tastefully decorated with dinner parties and entertaining in mind. Our kitchen is equipped with everything needed to prepare your meals (except the chef). We have a "Margaritaville" Margarita/smoothie maker, a lever juicer for fresh squeezed orange juice, a coffee maker and a Dulce Gusto Coffee/Hot Chocolate maker.
If relaxing is more your style, our condo is very comfortable. We have a selection of books, a TV and a selection of DVD's. We watch the odd movie or series on Netflix on our Laptop. We have good WIFI.
The two bedrooms each have a queen size bed and very good wood furniture made in Guadalajara.
The beach is a 10 to 15 minute walk away in either direction. In town head through the Omni Hotel and to the right to spots along the sandy beach. Or head in the opposite direction to Phase 4 and to the Caleta. A sheltered inlet great for swimming or snorkeling.
Puerto Aventuras is a very safe, gated community between Playa del Carmen and Akumal. (45 minutes south of Cancun) Enjoy walking around the town where there is a dolphin discovery area, a variety of shops and very good restaurants. Or wander up to the Pueblo for tacos at El Arbolito's or groceries at the Chedraui. We have a parking spot in front of our unit and extra parking on the street. We also have two bikes for your use.
We walk everywhere in town, sometimes we rent a car when we want to go further afield. We take the collectivo or Mayab bus at the top of the hill to go into Playa, Akumal or Tulum. It is a fast and affordable way to travel. There is an Oxxo store and a veggie market in Puerto.
Our condo was recently featured as a rental on "House Hunters International" airing January 8 2018. Search Youtube for the episode "Elvis takes Aventuras".

About Mary and Jim Snidal
My Husband and I live in Nanaimo, BC. Jim retired in 2011 just before we purchased our condo. We have spent 2 wonderful winters at the condo and as many mini vacations as we get the time for. We are back to work in Nanaimo, I work from home as a bookkeeper. Jim is managing the Nanaimo Squash Club. I am also an artist and am enjoying my new hobby of painting watercolour heritage buildings of Nanaimo.
Mary and Jim Snidal purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Mary and Jim Snidal chose Puerto Aventuras
We dreamed of retiring in Mexico. We originally wanted to buy in Playa del Carmen, our realtor took us to Puerto Aventuras to look at a listing he had. We loved the condo and the area. It is amazing that we own in such a beautiful condo on the canal in the tropics, just moments away from the Caribbean Sea.
What makes this Condo unique
We love the location on the canal. We get a gentle breeze originating from the Caribbean Sea. I love to walk down to our boat dock and see tropical fish right there, our own natural aquarium.

Lovely condo on the canal.
This a lovely 2 br/2bathrooms condo overlooking the canal in Puerto Aventuras. The swimming pool is steps from the condo. Super clean and kitchen area is perfect for home cooking. Grounds and buildings well cared for. Perfect vacation spot!
Thanks so much for the nice review. Hope you are enjoying your stay!
This was our second time staying at Mary and Jim’s place and it never disappoints. The condo is fully stocked with whatever you need. The condo is very spacious which is nice for a long term stay. We stayed 11 weeks and felt very much at home. The property is very well maintained and clean. It is within walking distance of many terrific restaurants and also grocery stores. Any questions we had were quickly responded to by Mary and she is a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone. Puerto Adventuras is very central to a lot of activities Tulum and Playa del Carmen and quite a few adventure parks. There is lots to see and do. It also has in our opinion the best gelato anywhere at Jessie’s Gelato. Paparazzi restaurant also was a favourite for Italian dishes and amazing pizza.
The property was just beautiful! The pictures don't so it justice. Everything was impeccably clean!
This rental is beautiful and spacious! My husband and I rented with our two best friends. We had two great bedrooms and two full bathrooms which was great for privacy when needed. The pool is great and we always had it all to ourselves. The grounds are well kept and have that tropical feel about them as the gardener takes great pride in his work. It is in a gated community and has everything you need if you don't want o venture out. There are restaurants, beaches, spas, shopping, dolphin adventure, marina, fishing etc. We went out fishing and we caught three barracuda. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful. They even told us we could use their kayaks if we wanted to. They also gave us great info on where attractions were located and how to get to them. The owners, Mary and Jim were amazing. They communicated with us from the minute we asked to book the condo. They sent us numerous emails with great information about the condo and surrounding area. We also asked many questions about best restaurants, and sites to see inside as well as outside the community. They were very helpful and emailed us info on their favorite beaches, restaurants and cenotes. This was incredibly helpful not knowing the area. There are two bikes to use that you can ride to get anywhere in the complex. You can also rent golf carts to get around if you need to. We were lucky to find this treasure and hopefully will be back soon! Thank you Mary and Jim for helping us to create wonderful memories on our vacation!
Loved the condo. Well equipped and with everything we needed. We found it a 5 min walk to the marina. So ideal positioning. The condo was clean , tidy . We had only 1 problem. The lady upstairs with the 3 dogs the dogs howl and bark depending on who is in the house. The music played on Sunday drowned out the music we were playing by the pool. Great place just unfortunate you can't pick your neighbours.
Thank you for your comments. Sorry about the annoying neighbour. Her dogs can be annoying especially if she leaves them home alone. She is trying to sell her unit...so hopefully that will happen in the near future.
