Top 10 Reasons We Want to Live in Puerto Aventuras

Nestled in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Puerto Aventuras is an exclusive gated residential resort community and a great place to call home. We can't get enough of this gorgeous coastal neighborhood and here are the reasons why.

1. Fantastic location

Puerto Aventuras is just over an hour drive from Cancun International Airport, but feels worlds away. Located halfway between Playa del Carmen and Akumal, this small seaside community makes a great jumping off point for exploring more of the region and enjoying all the Riviera Maya has to offer, including beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, cenotes, and eco-parks.

2. The marina

Puerto Aventuras is home to the only deep water marina in the Riviera Maya and a top destination for deep sea fishing and sailing. The views are spectacular and new 2 bedroom condos with water views sell for as little as $289,000 US dollars.

3. Safe gated community

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Playa del Carmen, this upscale gated golf course community is quiet and safe. It offers a slower pace of life and attracts expats, retirees, vacationing families, and snowbirds looking to escape from the cold winters up north.

4. The golf course

Designed by Thomas Leman in 1991, the Puerto Aventuras Golf Course was the first golf course in the Riviera Maya. This challenging 9-hole, par 36 course is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and home to different native animal species, making for a unique golf experience.

5. Quaint downtown area

What Puerto Aventuras lacks in size, it makes up for in charm. The lovely pedestrian downtown area is lined with a variety of shops, bars, and restaurants with outdoor seating and water views.

6. Great for families

There are all kinds of fun activities for families in Puerto Aventuras, including excellent snorkeling right off shore, tennis, golf, horseback riding, and sailing. The 175 ft. infinity swimming pool at Secret Waters is incredible, and there's even a skate park for kids. Puerto Aventuras is a short drive from popular ecoparks, like Xcaret and Xel-Ha, which the entire family is sure to love.

7. Easy to get around

You can drive a golf cart, ride a bike, or walk everywhere!

8. Wine tastings at The Divot

The Divot restaurant offers delicious food in a charming and peaceful outdoor setting with views overlooking the Puerto Aventuras Golf Course. Their wine tasting events offer guests the perfect opportunity to enjoy delicious cuisine paired with fine Mexican wines, such as El Cielo and Casa Madero. We can't think of a better way to spend an evening in the Riviera Maya.

9. Events

The community of Puerto Aventuras hosts a variety of cultural events throughout the year, including a food festival, golf and sport fishing tournaments, and even ballet on the golf course. To find out about upcoming events, check out our new Riviera Maya Events Calendar.

10. Luxury real estate

Whether you’re searching for a permanent home, a vacation home or an investment property, you’ll find private condos and villas in Puerto Aventuras to suit every style, many with water views and some set right on the green. Three of the most stunning oceanfront properties currently on the market in Puerto Aventuras are Quinta Maya, Casa Mim, and Caleta Xel-Ha.
