La Mision is a beautiful villa, nestled on a saltwater canal one block from the Ocean. There is ocean access through an undeveloped lot however, it is for sale and the access may be lost in time.
Puerto Aventuras is a closed and gated community centered on a large dolphin bay where they can be watched and interacted with. There are a couple marinas for site seeing, scuba, snorkling or fishing. Several restuants and shops surround the hub with neighborhoods of beautiful homes, some of which are leased, like La Mision.
La Mision is a beautiful b&b where breakfast and dinner can be included at your option. Caretakers Emilio and Jenny are attentive and available when needed but their presence is transparent otherwise.
The home has 6 bedrooms, all with balcony, lounge and swing. There is both a saltwater tidel pool occasionally seen with colorful fish and a fresh water pool. We swam daily in the canal. There is room in the back for several lounges and afternoon sunning.
Rooms are nicely appointed with plenty of closet space, private bath/shower and dual queen size beds that we found quite hard but comfortable.
Breakfast was included as a special for us and well prepared with fruits, eggs, breads, cereal, yogurt, fresh juice and coffee.
Free, wireless, internet access is provided.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The community smalll enough to walk most everywhere from shops to eateries. You could drive also and although parking seemed limited we never wanted for a parking space.
A stay at La Mision includes access privaledges at the Omni which has a work out room, nice beach, cabanas, pools, whirlpool bar, spa, etc.
The location is ideal for daily excursions to Coba, Tulum, Cozumel, Playa de Carmen, X-caret or Xel-ha. All are worthwhile and interesting.
Shopping in the community is a bit high, you are a captured audiance, however Playa is the place to go. A large shopping center, Chedraui, is great for supplies and go to 5th avenue, about a mile long, for shop after shop of bartering on goods. Plenty of fine restruants for every taste and pocketbook, both in Puerto Aventuras and in the surrounding area.
The villa is typical Spanish design with a large, central courtyard with waterfall where we took breakfast. While the villa was not carniverous in size we never felt crowded, always able to retreat to some area for "alone" time.
Highly recommended for a group vacation.
