About Gabby and Mark
We're a family from Colorado that enjoys the beautiful views of Mexico. We wanted to have another place to call home when it was time for a break. We purchased the condo to enjoy several weeks of the year and to rent to others that want to enjoy the beauty of the Riviera Maya. My wife and I have an 15 year old daughter, and three dogs that keep us extremely busy. We enjoy camping and fishing during the summer, and traveling during the colder months. Our family would live here if we could, but work doesn't allow for that yet. I am working on that!!!
Gabby and Mark purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Gabby and Mark chose Puerto Aventuras
Puerto Aventuras is a gated community with 24 hour security about 15 mintues south of Playa Del Carmen. It is a gorgeous condo right on the Lagoon. There's a pool right off the patio for our 11 year old to swim in while were not at the beach, and the beach is only steps away. We can kayak, snorkel, or just hang out on the inner tube right off our back yard in the lagoon. Puerto Aventuras is gorgeous with the the flowers and foliage that makes it feel like paradise. It's a safe place to either raise your family or visit for a week. There's shopping, restaurants(fast food to fine dining), swim with the dolphins, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, para-sailing, golfing, spa, tennis and many other other activities to do. There's live music everynight, and you can either order a burger or lobster depending on what you feel like eating. It's easy to get here with 3 1/2 hour flight from Denver, so you don't have to travel all day.

Great stay at Condo Laguna
We really enjoyed our stay at Condo Laguna and our first time being in wonderful Puerto Aventuras. The community was very friendly and safe, and there were so many restaurants, coffee shops and bars to choose from when you wanted to have a Happy Hour drink or dine out. Always lots of fabulous live entertainment in the marina area. The nearby grocery store was a short cab ride away. There is a Farmers’ Market on Wed. and Sat. that provided fresh produce, baked goods, delicious, huge shrimp and occasionally fresh, local fish.
Mark’s condo was spacious and clean and had lovely views of the lagoon. It was very handy having the golf cart for our daily trips to the PA Beach club. There was an AC unit in the living room and each of the 3 bedrooms for sleeping. The beds were comfortable. It was so nice having a full size stove and oven, and a full size fridge in the kitchen for cooking our meals. The laundry room also had a full sized washer and dryer. We enjoyed using the outdoor clothesline to dry our clothes as they dried very quickly in the heat. There is also a small, charcoal BBQ on the roof deck. We really liked that the condo was on the shady side of the lagoon as we could regularly enjoy sitting out on the balcony anytime of the day and not feel the direct sun and heat as much.
Mark Nelson was very approachable and kept in regular contact with us to make sure everything was going great and always asked if we needed anything. He has a wonderful, local support team with his property manager Gabby next door, and Diego, a very talented, helpful handyman who could fix almost anything.
We were the first long term Snowbird renters in the condo as others had come for shorter stay holidays before us. Mark was very agreeable to us purchasing any items needed for our long term stay so that we would be more comfortable and the condo would be better equipped. We really appreciated this.
This was a wonderful winter location for us Snowbirds with ideal weather and beautiful sunny days, and we had a fabulous time! Thanks, Mark!
The rental was very nice, resort style living at its best. Would definitely recommend this place and I would stay here again.
My only issue was Wifi not working. :(
The owner was easy to contact and responded very quickly to my messages.
We would like to thank you for staying at our place and having a great time. We really do appreciate it. We have decided to change out our Wi-Fi provider. We hope to see you again in the future. Thanks Mark
Many advantages with a good price
Puerto Aventuras is a very interesting place, very safe (day and night), nice landscapings, restaurants, some shopping, beautiful marina, and very well situated on the Riviera Maya. The condo is o.k.: larger than the pictures suggest, very comfortable for our family of 5. We appreciated the rooftop terrace, especially at night: complete privacy, very quiet, sunset views...
The golf cart and the Omni membership are big advantages: the Omni beach is one of the best in the area because it seems to be naturally protected from sargassum. Also the pools, towels and other facilities add a lot to the experience. It is also very fun and convenient to go everywhere in Puerto Aventuras with a golf cart...Overall this condo is a very good option at a reasonable price.
Great stay at Laguna Condo
We had a wonderful time at the Laguna Condo. The condominium is clean, spacious, and comfortable. The living room, master bedroom, and huge rooftop terrace all have gorgeous views of the lagoon.
We enjoyed spending a few afternoons the Omni Hotel - the membership is an excellent added bonus - but our most enjoyable moments of swimming were in the beautiful pool in the backyard. Sunsets in the pool can be spectacular. We also really liked having the golf cart to drive around the gated community - just make sure to charge it overnight on your day of arrival.
Puerto Aventuras feels completely safe and is perfectly located for exploring the Riviera Maya and the Yucatan Peninsula. Prices in stores and restaurants in the community are extremely reasonable for a touristy area.
Communication with the owner was easy, and he was always quick to respond to questions and resolve any issues that arose.
We would love to return to Puerto Aventuras some day and we would have no hesitations about staying at the Laguna Condo again.
This is a great area to stay in Mexico. It’s a gated community with the Omni included. The Omni membership alone made this stay worth it for us. Our kids could play at the pool all day. We never once felt unsafe.
We had 4 adults & 4 kids and were very comfortable in this condo. It was larger than it looks in the pictures.
The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is the lack of some basic things, such as wash cloths, places to hang towels & swimsuits, extra pillows, basic cooking essentials.... just things that would have made the stay easier.
Mark was great at communicating with me prior to our trip and answering questions once we arrived.
I’d definitely book this condo again
The condo has everything we needed for our stay, and everything was very nice, modern, comfortable beds, amazing sunsets. Smooth transaction, great communication, thanks for the opportunity to stay and enjoy your property on Puerto Aventuras
