This is definitely the place to experience all that Akumal, Mexico has to offer! The condo is situated directly overlooking the crystal blue Half-Moon Bay and the Caribbean Sea. Overall, the community is very quiet but VERY accessible to attractions. Very friendly faces everywhere, even walking to and from restaurants at night! From La Iguna Condos (where this condo is located) it is only a 10-minute walk to about six fantastic restaurants ranging from tiny local restaurants, to beach-front bars, all the way to a fine dining restaurant almost right next door.
I went snorkeling with Akumal Dive Shop which was amazing. You can also snorkel at your own pace by just walking out the front door of the condo into the water! The water is very warm, clear, and safe. I definitely recommend wearing water shoes due to some sea urchins which are to be expected in the Caribbean. The private beach out front is never crowded, so you have plenty of space to spread out, and everyone who was staying in the other units of La Iguana were super friendly! You'll definitely make some new friends here in Akumal. There are two amazing stores right outside the arch of Akumal to shop for groceries and souvenirs! Also, right near the arch (about 1 mile from the condo) is beach access to Akumal beach which is more of a public beach. The water there is very shallow and the beach is fantastic. Never overcrowded like some resort areas!
The unit itself is very comfortable. The couch in the living room, of course with the nice television, is literally only about 25 feet from the ocean! Both bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable and spacious. The daily housekeeping service is great--they take care of everything for you! And they do it with a smile which makes it even better. The door to this condo is right next to the covered pool, and only about 10 feet from the private outdoor pool. Certainly the best location in the entire building! Also, you can walk out of the front of the condo OR the main door to the condo and be in the sand within 10 steps. :)
I highly recommend this accommodation for anyone-whether it be a family, a couple, or a solo adventure, you will certainly have a great time!
