I have a gorgeous new condo north of Costa Maya and Portafino for $225/day. The condo is one of three, the others are not ready yet. No pool or bar yet, but you can walk to a bar and leave your parents at home.
I second Wonder Woman's recommendation! (Yes, this is where I live full time – Villas @ Del Rio). There are 10 units here, all individually owned by a great bunch of people who come here on a regular basis but rent out between times. We are l/4 mile north of the bridge – which means when your golf cart breaks down you can take a taxi to the bridge and walk the rest of the way. LOL I’m old and fat and never wear shoes and have actually been able to do this a number of times.
The short term rentals are managed by a great guy – Roger! Here is the web site for his service. //www.ambergriscaye.com/ambergrisvacationrentals/index.html

Hey Captain Jack - you crack me up as you seem to be the only person that does fully read these posts . I will definitely post our trip report when we return - but it won't be until June 2007. On a side note - can anyone help us choose between Chaa Creek, Hidden Valley, and Blancaneux Lodge? We will be finishing our trip with a few days in the jungle and want to live it up! Thanks
