Puerto Aventuras


Puerto Aventuras Mexico is an upscale, gated, resort/residential community and marina located on the Riviera Maya 1 hour drive south of the Cancun airport, or 15 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, on a 4 lane highway. 

Puerto Aventuras Mexico is especially attractive to families and couples. 

There is a central commercial area in Puerto Aventuras Mexico where you will find a number of restaurants, bars, shops, services, activities, and deep water marina.  On each side of the Puerto Aventuras commercial center is a gorgeous, sandy, protected bay. Each of these bays is ideal for swimming and snorkelling.  To the South is Fatima Bay which is often referred to as the Omni Beach because of the hotel of the same name being located there.  On the Northern side of Puerto Aventuras is the Chan Yu Yum Bay where you will find the Dreams and Catalonia hotels. 

Puerto Aventuras is large enough to provide most of the services and activities one looks for in a beach vacation, yet small enough that you can still walk everywhere.

PUERTO AVENTURAS Oceanfront Vacation Rental Locations - Fatima Bay / Omni Beach
This is the main beach in Puerto Aventuras because of its public access and larger size.  It is characterized by soft white sand and a shallow bay protected by an outer reef.  This outer reef keeps the bay quite calm most of the time making this an ideal place for bathers. 

At the north end near the Omni Hotel the ocean bottom is quite sandy.  As you move further south, although the beach remains sandy, there are coral outcrops in the water, which makes for good fish habitat and snorkelling, but requires bathers to use caution or water shoes when getting in and out. 

Fatima Bay is an ideal bay to snorkel, especially out near where the reef is breaking.  I have personally seen a wide array of fish both small and medium size, as well as various types of rays, numerous turtles, a few eels, and even a small nurse shark. (which by the way are harmless and as scared of you - as you may be of them)

The Omni Hotel is open to the public so a great place to meet for a meal, light snack, or late afternoon cocktail.

If you are wanting to gain beach access without passing through the Omni Hotel.  At the end of the row of shops to the north of the hotel, there is an alleyway which will take you through to the beach.  It looks like you are passing through the back of a dive shop but don't worry, this is a public passageway.

PUERTO AVENTURAS Oceanfront Vacation Rental Locations - Chan Yu Yum Bay / Dreams & Catalonia Beach

Although all of the coastline in Mexico is public property there is not always public access.  When that situation arises, the result will be a beach that is somewhat private.  This is the case with the beach on Chan Yu Yum Bay, which is dominated by the 2 Catalonia hotels & Quinta Luna condos on the north end, and Dreams hotel on the south. 

Both the Dreams and Catalonia hotels are of the All Inclusive format so they do not allow walk in traffic thereby restricting access to the beach to their guests and those who are staying in one of the villas or condos located at either end who can simply walk down the shoreline.  Both the Dreams and Catalonia hotels offer day or evening passes for a fee and both have spas which are open to the public for a fee.

Smaller than the more popular Fatima Bay.  This horseshoe shaped bay is similar in that it is ringed by glorious sand and protected by an outer reef.  Like Fatima Bay this makes an ideal spot for bathers and snorkelers alike.

A fairly large saltwater lagoon heads inland from the north end of the bay between the Catalonia hotel and Quinta Luna condos.  This lagoon is ringed by a number of condos and a popular spot to kayak.

PUERTO AVENTURAS Oceanfront Vacation Rental Locations - Las Rocas

Access to the exclusive Las Rocas area of Puerto Aventuras is by a bridge over one channel of the marina.  The flat coral shoreline in front of the private villas located here, is broken up with an entrance into the marina on the south end of the street and Chan Yu Yum Bay to the north. (see above)

The bay, shared with the Dreams and Catalonia Hotels, is ideal for swimming and is only a short stroll along the oceanfront from any of these villas. The sand from this bay extends part way up the shoreline before ending just past villa Brisa Caribe.

In front of these villas, the coral and limestone outcrop makes for dramatic vistas, provides a soothing rhythm of water lapping against the shore, and is ideal for peaceful strolls combing for shells and other treasures given up by the sea.  Because there is no public access to this area, it is also quite private.

At the north end of Las Rocas nearly in front of villas Brisa Caribe, is an inviting saltwater pool cut into the coral which offer relief from the heat and protection for those who are not so comfortable in the open sea. 

Along Las Rocas the coral extends out and into the bountiful gin clear Caribbean waters making this a wonderful place to snorkel and dive.  In fact you will often see dive boats not very far off shore.

My home, Brisa Caribe, is located at the north end of Las Rocas where it meets Chan Yu Yum bay.  I snorkel here often and can report the best snorkelling is in front of the Dreams hotel palapa bar on the rocky point.  About 100 yards off shore you will find a fairly large sink hole.  There are some nice coral formations on the south of the hole and the shelf under the overhang is a regular resting place for lobster, eels, octopus and a wide variety of fish. 

While snorkelling in front of the Las Rocas area I have often seen turtles, nurse sharks and various types of rays including a female manta ray with baby!

PUERTO AVENTURAS Oceanfront Vacation Rental Locations - Punta Brava

Punta Brava is a relative newly developed area of oceanfront condominiums along a rocky shoreline on the northern boundary of Puerto Aventuras.  It is bordered by the Aventuras Spa Hotel to the north and Chan Yu Yum bay to the south. 

Dramatic ocean vistas are the norm here.  Idle time can be swallowed up watching the dive, charter fishing, catamaran tours and pleasure boats passing by.  On most days the cruise ships can be seen at port across the water in Cozumel.

The shoreline is relatively flat rocky limestone outcrops.  In front of the Pueblo Escondido and Punta Roca condo complexes, saltwater pools fed and washed clean by the ocean, have been carved into the stone providing a protected place to soak or swim.  Boardwalks of stone and wood have been laid over the rocks with islands of grass thatch palapas providing places to get into the shade.  All of the condos have oceanfront freshwaters swimming pools.  Although no beach, it is a very pleasing and tranquil environment.

Snorkelling and diving in front of the Punta Brava area is very good but it can be quite difficult to get in and out of the ocean here. 

From here the closest beach is on Chan Yu Yum bay in front of the Catalonia hotels, however it can be a little tricky gaining access. 

The Catalonia hotels are of the All Inclusive format so they do not allow walk in traffic thereby restricting access to the beach to their guests.  However the hotels do offer day or evening passes for a fee and they have a spa and gym which is open to the public for a fee.

PUERTO AVENTURAS Vacation Rental Locations - Golf Course

The Puerto Aventuras 9 hole par 36 golf course is challenging, very pretty, and never busy. 

Here you can wander up to the clubhouse around 7 AM where you will be sure to meet one of the residents who will likely invite you to join them in a casual round.  Or if you want a really entertaining round and a chance to mingle with the local Mayans, just ask one of the grounds keepers to join you.  Most of them finish work by 3 PM, love to golf, and have the strangest collection of clubs you could imagine.  Armado who maintains hole 5, is simply charming and will rarely turn down a game.  When I was golfing, I liked to do 9 holes in the morning and then return to do another 9 in the afternoon, saving the hottest part of the day for the beach.

Threading around and through the golf course are a number of private villas.  A few of these homes are available to the rental market. 

All are within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars, boutiques, services, swim with dolphins, fishing charters, tennis and the rest that Puerto Aventuras has to offer.
