3 Reasons Why Vacation Rentals Beat Resorts

Published on February 16, 2015 by admin

The Mayan Riviera coast is lined with mammoth hotels. If you’ve stayed at an all-inclusive resort, you know how beautiful they can be. For your first trip to Mexico, this can be the right choice. But if you’re looking for a more authentic, relaxed experience, a vacation condo is the best way to go. It can be your home away from home. (A fabulous, beachfront home at that!)

Here are 3 reasons why a vacation rental beats an all-inclusive resort:


Staying at a condo in Playa del Carmen puts you near all the action. Quiet and secure, Rentals Your Way properties are within easy walking distance of amazing restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, dive shops, cafes and more. Excursions are cheaper and more accessible too. Avoid paying hefty shuttle or taxi fares from a resort. Playa is best explored by walking!


Each condo at Rentals Your Way has been furnished and decorated with personal touches. When is the last time a hotel provided a personal collection of DVDs, games or books for guests? Or provided pool toys,
bicycles, and a private grill? Enjoy all the comforts of home in a stunning, scenic destination!


No schedule, no line-ups, no reservations, no crowds! Interact with locals and experience the flavor of Mexico at your own pace. Wake up to an ocean sunrise, stroll the beach outside your condo, pick up a fresh croissant or maybe huevos rancheros—all without throngs of tourists. (A big part of the charm of international travel is sampling the local cuisine.) Or stay in your pajamas, whip up something delicious in the well-appointed kitchen and eat outside on your private terrace. There is no formula. Break away from the tourist mould and live each day of your vacation the way you want!

Staying at a vacation rental is often the best value—a large group can split the cost. It’s also an eco-friendly option, since there is less waste than there would be at an all-inclusive. Experience the Caribbean lifestyle on your own terms! With less pressure and no hordes of tourists, you can truly enjoy a refreshing, rejuvenating vacation.
