About the neighbourhood
Located in the exclusive gated community of Playacar. It is close to the town entrance of Playa del Carmen / Playacar, so it is an easy five minute walk to the 5th Avenue shops and retsaurants. It is a similar distance to the beautiful Playacar beach - a pleasant walk through a beautiful park with its own Mayan ruins. Casa Vela is close to everything, but far enough to allow you to relax by the pool. The golf course is just across the street.
A small convenient grocery store is just a few minutes walk.
There is ample space on the drive to park two cars
Getting around
It is easy to walk to both the beach and town, so it is not necessary to rent a car. It is easy to arrange tours to see the major sights in the area and the main supermarket is a short taxi journey. Having said that, if you do rent a car, it will give you great flexibility to explore all the many sights in the area and the great beaches on the Riviera Maya.

There are many great places to see which can be experienced either independently or with a tour. We work with one of the best tour companies in Playa who will be pleased to offer our guests a discount on any of their 80+ different tour options.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Cancun: 64.0 km
Ferry: Playa del Carmen: 0.8 km
Transfer from Cancun airport takes about 40 - 60 minutes. Transfer can be arranged direct to your villa by our property managers or there are a number of specialist taxi transfer companies. A regular taxi is also a good option. If you plan to rent a car for your vacation, it is easy to collect the car at Cancun airport and driving to the villa is easy. We provide detailed directions and parking on the drive accommodates 2 cars. Although a car is not necessary as you can easily walk to the beach and 5th Avenue, it does offer you the flexibility to explore the whole Riviera Maya
