Common Questions about Holiday Rental Homes
Airport do we fly into?" - Your
arrival airport will be Cancun International Airport which is located
about 40 miles north of Playa del Carmen; it will take you about 45
minutes via private shuttle from the Airport to Playa del Carmen. You
should find direct flights from almost any major airport in the World. Alternatively
you can fly into Cozumel airport. You can then take a taxi to the Ferry
dock, the ferry to playa del Carmen and then a taxi to your accommodation.
Cancun is a better option.
- "How do I get from Cancun International to My Holiday homes
Property?" -You have several options here, but my recommendation is to
utilize the private van service offered through your My Holiday Homes
Rental contact! The van will accommodate up to 8 adults plus luggage and
take you directly from the airport to check in and be taken by your
concierge to your home! The round trip cost of this service is $165 USD.
You can also grab a taxi directly from the airport and the cost is fixed
at $82 each way. Problem is a taxi only accommodates 3 people (barely), so
my recommendation is to use the Private Van Service. You can add this
option directly onto your reservation!
- "Is Playa del Carmen Safe?" - This
has become the number 1 asked question! And the answer is and astounding
"YES"! Playa del Carmen has the same crime rate as Rutland, so
chances are that the area where you live has a significantly higher crime
rate that we do here in Playa! All of the bad press you are hearing
regarding Mexican violence revolves around the drug trade occurring at the
U.S. / Mexico border we are over 2,500 miles removed from the border
towns! In the 8+ years we have been here, we have NEVER had a crime
incident, which again is something you can probably not say about your
- "What if I have to cancel my trip or my airline flight
is canceled or changed?" - Spend
the extra few bucks and purchase Travel Insurance!!!!! Travel Insurance is
like every other insurance policy; you hope you never have to use it, but
you feel a lot better when you have it! And should something happen that
throws a kink into your travel plans, the Insurance policy will cover your
- "When is the best time to visit?" - This
depends on what you are looking for on a Holiday. In short the Winter and
Spring months are the most popular because the weather is cooler and many
North Americans travel to avoid the harsh northern winters. On the other
hand, if your looking to save money then come visit during the slower
months, come anytime after Easter. The prices are much lower and town is
much quieter. The weather in the summer is perfect for us Brits sunshine
every day and hot hot hot. Take advantage of the cheaper prices and get
the hottest weather.
- "Why rent a Private apartment or Home when there are so
many All-Inclusive Resorts?" - These
are two totally different Holidays! If your the type of person that
prefers to stay in ONE resort area your entire Holiday and you enjoy
buffet style meals and watered down house margaritas, then you should book
an All Inclusive Hotel, although there is really no reason to even travel
to Mexico at this point!
If on the other hand you are the type of person that wants to
engage and experience what this magical city has to offer then you are the type
of person that should rent a private condo or home. Use the MHH Concierge staff
to plan your Holiday before you even arrive! Playa del Carmen is one of the
most incredible destinations in the entire World so please make the effort to
enjoy and appreciate everything that Playa has to offer!
rent through My Holiday Homes? - We know there are other
choices for Holiday Rentals in Playa del Carmen, but despite what they
promise and what they offer, there simply is no other firm that offers a
greater variety of properties and more personalized service than MHH
supported on the ground by BRIC International. Speak to our staff and view
the service options available and you too will agree that MHH is not only
the best choice, but the only choice if you are looking to have the
greatest Holiday experience in Playa del Carmen!
is there to do in Playa del Carmen, any suggestions?" - I've
been here for over 8 years and have even yet to do all the tours and
excursions that we have, nor have I eaten at probably even 1/4 of the
restaurants here in town. Short answer is you can fill your entire day,
every day, with activities...it just depends on what you are looking to do
and what you deem as "Holiday".
If you are a lounger-type Holiday person, you can enjoy different
beaches every single day from Playa del Carmen, south to Tulum. Sit in the sun
and enjoy an Adult Beverage with an umbrella in it! Or....mix it up and spend
some time zipping through the Jungles, Playing a round of golf on a PGA course
or visit some of the many ruins in the Riviera Maya! No matter what you define
as "Holiday", Playa del Carmen will exceed your expectations and your
MHH and BRIC International staff are here to make it all perfect for you. See

and personal favorites!
