Condo/Apartment
Our sunny 2BR/2BA corner condo is unusually spacious for Playa (1400 sq. ft) and benefits from a top location---15 steps off the beach (not quite beachfront) for quiet privacy yet only a quick 3-block walk to all the restaurants and shops in Playa's new and best neighborhood of Calle 38 and Avenida Quinta. Our lovely rooftop infinity pool with sun deck is the largest we saw while searching to buy a condo in the city of Playa---and believe me, we looked and looked! A second large pool is on the ground floor for families with children (or anyone else), including a 'baby pool,' sun deck and grilling area. We were told by our property manager that on a recent site visit by a representative from a well-known online booking agency, he cited our condo as the nicest he'd seen on his visit....Our sunny 2BR/2BA corner condo is unusually spacious for Playa (1400 sq. ft) and benefits from a top location---15 steps off the beach (not quite beachfront) for quiet privacy yet only a quick 3-block walk to all the restaurants and shops in Playa's new and best neighborhood of Calle 38 and Avenida Quinta.

We were told by our property manager that on a recent site visit by a representative from a well-known online booking agency, he cited our condo as the nicest he'd seen on his visit. It is newly painted; features a new and comfy sectional sofa (rare in Playa!); a lovely dining area for 6; a fully equipped kitchen; a selection of Mexican arts and crafts; and two beach loungers + an umbrella. (Beach clubs charge by the day for such amenities--and on occasion it's worth it for their cushy, upscale loungers, but probably not every day.) Wifi, two satellite TVs, and an assortment of games, books, and DVDs guarantee you'll never be bored. An added bonus is nearby dining: a very good Greek restaurant next to our building and within another block or two, four more terrific restaurants: one upscale Mexican, two Italian, and one Thai. For snacks, beverages, and breakfast croissants, an OXXO convenience store is on the corner. There's a small market about three blocks away and a larger grocery store about 8 blocks away. But why stay at home? A few blocks up Calle 38 is everything that Playa's 4-mile pedestrian boulevard, Avenida Quinta, has to offer--- a wonderful array of restaurants representing a world of cuisines (some with live music); lovely galleries and shops; leisurely coffee spots for outdoor people-watching; a French bakery; gelato shops, and an enjoyable Thursday Night Art Walk. For a more lively night life, a one-mile stroll toward Centro will take you to all the action. Our building has its own concierge who is always eager to help guests venture farther from Playa---a day of snorkeling at Yalku or Cozumel perhaps? a visit to a cenote or to see the ruins in Tulum? The concierge knows how to get it done---and less expensively than if you use a tour operator on Quinta. The concierge can also help you resolve problems. For ex.--Recently he found an Apple phone charger for me to rent for a week--a replacement for the one I'd accidentally left at home. That helpful move saved me $75! We invite you to come and be our guests at our beloved Luz del Sol in Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya! More

About the neighbourhood
There's a reason Playa was recently named the world's most popular vacation destination. There is so much to do! Of course there's the beautiful Riviera Maya beach and all imaginable water sports available. But even non-swimmers have fun wandering the 4-mile pedestrian mall, getting spa services, sampling the world cuisines in 150 restaurants, and having more available nightlife experiences than anyone could take in on a vacation: concerts, Cirque du Soleil, movies at the Cineplex, a wide variety of theme parks and adventure parks, one including a two hour Mexican folklorico show, a flamenco dance performance in nearby Puerto Morelos, solo performers across town, a few galleries, a weekly art walk..... and more!
Getting around
Walking does it in Playa, thanks to our 4-mile pedestrian mall! But if you prefer-- and for longer jaunts--there are regulated, zoned taxis everywhere. You can also travel up and down the coast via shuttle bus, cab, van, or rental car. Ask our building concierge to help you do it right and inexpensively. Favorite out of town spots are cenotes, theme parks, deserted beaches, Cirque du Soleil, the Tulum ruins, and the picturesque small towns such as Akumal and Puerto Morelos (especially on Saturday night). For a visit to Cozumel, take a ferry--either pedestrian or car ferry.
