Puerto Aventuras Gated Community
The Ultimate Villa Experience

Puerto Aventuras, translated to “Port of Adventures,” or “Puerto,” as the locals call it, is a sophisticated and private gated community in the heart of the world-famous Riviera Maya. It is located in the state of Quintana Roo, just 20 minutes from Playa del Carmen, 30 minutes from Tulum, and approximately one hour from Cancun’s International Airport. This prime location provides visitors and residents with the perfect combination of Cancun’s fun, Playa del Carmen’s attitude, and an intimate environment within its gates. Puerto Aventuras was founded in 1998; the area started as a small village with little more than an elementary school, a church, and a few stores. Completely transformed by the mega-developer and architect Ramon Rivera Torres, it is now a well-sought-after destination, attracting expats, vacationing families, and snowbirds worldwide.

The area quickly became a traveler’s paradise with its clean, modern, and well-maintained aesthetic. Despite expanding over the years, Puerto Aventuras has maintained its charming, small-town feel. Being far removed from the hustle and bustle of a crowded city, visitors enjoy a much slower, more relaxed pace of life. The entire community is quiet and safe, with private security patrolling 24 hours a day. It’s notorious for having a warm, friendly ambiance and an international feel.

The Puerto Aventuras community is surrounded by gorgeous, lush tropical jungle and two beautiful marinas (including one of the best in the Caribbean Sea). Personal yachts and large recreational fishing boats can be seen glimmering amidst the brilliant sunshine and crystal-clear waters. There are various upscale accommodations, including six world-class hotels and six spectacular real estate developments. With Villa Experience’s complete selection of vacation rentals, you’ll find everything from luxurious oceanfront villas, short-term rentals, beachfront houses, and boutique hotels in the most exclusive areas such as Amura, and Barlovento, Grand Marina, Grand Peninsula, Portobello, and The Inlet.

Vacationing in Puerto Aventuras is perfect for just about any type of trip, from that long-planned family vacation to a spur-of-the-moment elusive, romantic getaway. There’s certainly no shortage of entertainment with an acclaimed 36-par ocean-view golf course, tennis courts, a shopping center, a museum, an extensive array of gourmet restaurants, hip bars, and trendy nightclubs, all located within the community. We have marinas close by and offer great water-based excursions such as swimming with dolphins and manatees at Dolphin Discovery, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, free diving, parasailing, boat tours, and more.

A popular option is boarding a catamaran for a tour of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. It’s the perfect way to experience a day of snorkeling and fishing while indulging in a full bar and gourmet meal at sea! If you’re in the mood to relax under an umbrella, spend the day at one of the beaches in the bays such as Fatima, Chan Yu Yum, or Chac Hal Al. If you’re up for an adventure, explore the little-known, hidden beach of Puerto Aventuras. This magnificent, secluded beach highlights Instagram-worthy surroundings with calm, pristine, shallow turquoise waters. Being located directly on the Caribbean Sea, Puerto Aventuras offers incredible options for all types of water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skiing, and more.

Just outside the gates, you’ll find various types of exhilarating activities in the nearby area. You may explore the many cenotes, embark upon an ATV jungle tour, go ziplining, or navigate the magnificent Tulum or Coba Mayan ruins. Less than a 20-minute drive away, you’ll find the top-rated eco-theme parks known as Xcaret and Xel-Ha. If you’re considering traveling to Puerto Aventuras, contact our team of experts at Villa Experience. We’ll help you plan every last detail, from accommodations to your unique daily itinerary. When you book with us, we ensure a flawless, completely personalized, unforgettable visit. For discounts and special pricing on Puerto Aventuras, contact us today!

Not only do they manage all the people coming into the community, but they also police the inhabitants within the community.

With a small-town feel, the residents have a tight-knit group where everyone knows and watches out for each other. The community is well-known for being warm and friendly, with everyone enjoying a laid-back lifestyle and complete peace of mind. In comparison to Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Puerto Aventuras offers an oasis of tranquility.

With three different bays, Puerto Aventuras is a snorkeling haven. Being so close to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef gives visitors the unique opportunity to explore this magnificent underwater world up close and personal. You’ll see a wide variety of marine life from turtles, stingrays, enormous brain coral, vibrant sea fans, crabs, sea horses, and beautiful schools of brightly colored fish. Theoretically, you could snorkel anywhere there’s ocean water!

If you have your snorkel gear and are looking to do a self-guided tour, you’ll want to check out Chan Yu Yum (keep in mind that you can also rent equipment at one of the dive shops on the marina). This public access beach is one of the main attractions in the area and a top destination for diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. It is located north and features flat white sands that melt flawlessly into shallow waters. It is delightfully calm with no large waves, making it perfect for snorkeling. Fatima Bay, also known as Omni Beach, is another excellent option for snorkeling. With over 1.5 miles of beachfront, it is listed as one of the best beaches in Riviera Maya. Here, you’ll find beautiful, soft sand and shallow waters. Protected by an outer reef, the bay remains calm, making it ideal for snorkeling.

For a picturesque, laid-back beach with a beautiful underwater world, check out the hidden beach of Puerto Aventuras. It’s a serene, relaxing paradise with exceptional snorkeling. The Puerto Aventuras government created a faux reef just meters from the shore, attracting various marine life while protecting the area from waves and debris. Creating a stunning cove-like space, the water remains perfectly still with depths remaining shallow. Then, within just a few more meters, you can swim to the actual Meso-American Barrier Reef, where you’ll experience a vibrant underwater playground.

If you’re interested in an organized snorkel tour in the open water, various dive shops around the marinas offer their services. Tours are typically scheduled daily and include everything from the boat ride to masks, fins, a life preserver, and even drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)! Dressel Divers is a famous company in the area. They offer a delightful catamaran snorkel cruise, which combines a Puerto Aventuras coastal cruise with unique snorkeling locations. Leaving straight from the pier, you’ll head out to snorkel around some of the gorgeous reefs in the area. These include Yanten, close to Paamul, Inah, and Xpuha. Here, you’ll see an extensive coral population in addition to many different species of fish, including butterfly, parrot, angel, and barracudas. Next, you’ll cruise to natural swimming pools, secluded waist-deep areas in the middle of the ocean. Perfect for swimming, wading, and walking around as you enjoy a tropical drink!

The beaches at Puerto Aventuras are some of the most beautiful and family-friendly beaches in the entire Riviera Maya. Few vacationers know they even exist, making them highly private and secluded. As a result, visiting them often feels like you have the Caribbean as a whole to yourself! With shallow waters, gentle surf, and many services found at the shore, they’re perfect for everyone in the family, from small children to the elderly.

There are three different bays in the Puerto Aventuras area: Fatima Bay, Chan Yu Yum, and Chac Hal Al. With over 1.5 miles of beachfront, Fatima Bay is the main beach. It is a public access beach characterized by luscious powdery sand and shallow waters protected by an outer reef. The outer reef keeps the bay calm, making it an excellent choice for bathing and snorkeling. The north end of Fatima Bay has a comfortable, sandy ocean bottom. However, you’ll experience coral outcrops in the water as you move further south. While it creates the perfect environment for snorkeling with lots of fish calling it home, it is recommended to use caution or wear water shoes when entering and exiting.

Chan Yu Yum is located in the north, and despite being public property, it is somewhat of a private beach. With larger hotels and condos in the area, access to the beach is often restricted to only their guests/residents. The site is a horseshoe-shaped bay highlighting flat white sands and beautiful shallow waters. As with Fatima Bay, it is also protected by an outer reef, making the waters calm with no big waves. This beach is unique because there is a reasonably large saltwater lagoon that heads inland from the north. It is known to be a trendy spot to kayak. Located in the south, Chac Ha Al Inlet and beyond are principally private properties.

The Las Rocas area offers exclusive access with a bridge over a channel of the marina. You will experience a flat coral shoreline lined with magnificent private villas. An entrance into the marina is on the south end, while Chan Yu Yum Bay is on the north. You’ll find dramatic vistas made from the coral and limestone outcrop, creating a peaceful stretch to walk and collect seashells. There is no public access to this area; it is very private, quiet, and serene. At the north end of Las Rocas, a stunning saltwater pool is cut into the coral, creating a perfect haven for those not comfortable swimming in the open water.

The hidden beach of Puerto Aventuras is located just left of the Omni Hotel, close to the main town square. With only residents and locals knowing about this area, you’ll find it relatively deserted with only a few people at any given time. Pristine white sands abound with glorious palm trees and glistening turquoise waters. Just meters from the shoreline lies a faux reef that the Puerto Aventuras government created. As it protects the area from waves and debris, it creates a cove-like area with shallow, crystal clear, ideally still water. Just beyond that, you’ll find the real Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. This beach is divine!
