About Steve or Karen

Hi, this is Karen and Steve and we are excited that you are interested in renting our condo for your family vacation, gathering with friends or a much needed getaway. Initially from the US Northeast, we moved to Charlotte, North Carolina after marrying in 1991. In search of even more warmer weather to eventually spend the winter months during retirement, we recently purchased our condo to enjoy a couple weeks per year until then and offer the rest of the year to guests like you to enjoy.

Before we met, we had both been to Cancun and started enjoying the beautiful beaches and friendly culture from day one. Including our honeymoon, we have been on several cruises and found Mexico to be one of the most affordable Caribbean locations. We also went to Acapulco years ago and, hands down, the Caribbean side of Mexico is by far the better coast with white sand and crystal clear, calm waters....just like the pictures you see.

We have two kids, Alex who is 19 and Lauren who just turned 16. They have been traveling with us to the Mexican Riviera for the past 8 years.

Please our reviews of local attractions in the Travel Guide section.

Steve or Karen purchased this condo in 2015

Why Steve or Karen chose Puerto Aventuras

About 15 years ago, with Cancun building up rapidly, we headed south and stayed half-way between Cancun and Playa del Carmen near Puerto Morales. The town was quaint but the water and beach quality could have been better. So when we returned with the kids 7 years later we tried south of Playa del Carmen and completely fell in love with the area. The area is great for calm, blue water, snorkeling from the beach, the only marina between Cancun and Belize and short drives to the major attractions - Tulum, Xcaret, Xel-Ha, several excellent and cheap cenotes (inland fresh-water snorkeling and scuba diving locations).

Last year, as we were driving back from Tulum to our hotel in Playa del Carmen (again with the kids), we saw the gated entrance to Puerto Aventuras and decided to check it out. We drove and walked around and just fell in love with the community feel. It was a nice change from the big resorts we stayed before where you had to get up early to claim a beach or pool chair only to be surrounded “100’s of your closest friends” and wait in buffet lines for the same food served day after day.

The Puerto Aventuras “town center”, just a few minute walk from the condo, boasts many affordable restaurants and shops. Everything is in walking distance - a beautiful marina, convenience store, a couple of public beach accesses and golf. We could picture ourselves staying here for extended periods of time and short trips. When we were back in the Riviera Maya the end of February we looked at a lot of condos and Secret Waters was clearly the one which stole our heart. When we walked in the front door we could see right through the condo to the wall of sliders that overlooks the lush gardens, expansive pool and the dolphin lagoon. It was bright and airy and we knew that we had found our future “home”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An exceptional place to stay at. The location is perfect as you can reach many attractions from the place. If don't feel like going anywhere, the marina has pretty much anything you need for your vacation. The apartment is big, clean and very nice. It has everything you need. The view from the apartment is amazing. The host was very attentive to our needs and coordinated everything for our late arrival. Will definitely comeback.

Great place, amazing pool!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience overall. The condo was as described and well equipped. The living area and balcony are roomy and very comfortable. The huge pool is unique and overlooks the dolphins. The location is perfect in Puerto Aventuras, close to everything yet very quite. Communication with owner and manager was very easy. We would recommend this place to anyone and wish to be back one day...

Great huge condo with view of dolphins... WOW

  • 5 of 5

Great place, great friendly service. We were there for 3 days and it was exquisite. This is the place where we had our best sleep in our 3 weeks in Mexico : we felt like sleeping on a cloud and the place is so quiet... Is is also very well furnished. There is even a dolphin show you can see from the balcony! The outside pool is also so huge and we had it just for us...

The neighbourhood is very safe and there are many shops around. There is another dolphin show a few streets away, where you can also see manitees, sea lions, rays.. We saw monkeys on the street and our son had the pleasure to let one touch is hand. Priceless!

Also, it's also just great to walk around and see all the fishing boats with their catch of the day. The beach is not far and there are many different types you can try : waves, no waves, sand, rocks with fishes...

A great get away for us. We will shurely return.

Thanks for a great stay.

Beautiful, modern space in a wonderful part of Riviera Maya.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved staying at this condo. It was clean, modern and very spacious so we always felt we had plenty of room to relax and enjoy ourselves, even when we were dealing with 2 days of rain thanks to Tropical Storm Franklin. The view was incredible of both the huge pool and the dolphin marina. My son's morning ritual was to go to the marina every morning to say hi to the dolphins and walk around to see what creatures were in the gardens that morning. Couldn't imagine a better, safer town to stay in either. We loved walking to the different shops and restaurants every day. Everything was in easy walking distance but nice to know we could rent bikes or golf carts if we had wanted to. It was nice being centrally located to the ruins, cenotes and other parks in the area. It was absolutely perfect! We plan on coming back next year!

Owner could not have been more helpful. The place was exactly as described. Super clean and the beds were really comfy. Pool was amazing and you could watch them train the dolphins from the balcony or the pool. Would definitely stay there again.
