The lodging possibilities on the Yucatán Peninsula are nearly infinite. Combine the sheer number of hotels, villas, condos and resorts with the variety of locales, and the job of a reviewer is a lifetime gig. Below are just a few examples. And here are all of our lodging reviews; just remember that some may be outdated.

We welcome others to share their reviews and experiences with us.

It's hard to believe, but this stunning boy is still waiting for the perfect family to find him and give him his furever home. Kokoro was born about August 2014 and arrived at the shelter November 11, 2014. He is neutered and current on all vaccinations.

Kokoro was rescued from the street by a local woman and brought to us after being fostered. He is outgoing and energetic, the perfect dog for an active family. He is a handsome boy with his flashy black-and-white coat. He has a huge heart; in fact, his name means heart in Japanese.

Like many of our dogs, he takes a minute or two to get to know you, then you have a friend for life!

If you would like more information about Kokoro, or any of the dogs of Playa Animal Rescue, please email Pat at pat@playaanimalrescue.org
