The Mayan Riviera is a diving and fishing paradise and an archaelogical wonder! We are just 5 miles to Akumal, 11 to the pueblo of Tulum and the beautiful white sand beaches of Tulum are just a few miles from town. It is a 10 minute walk to the lovely Playa Xcacel, protected turtle sanctuary. By day enjoy this secluded, white sand crescent beach. By night during turtle nesting season, enjoy learning about the endangered Loggerhead and Giant Green Sea turtles and these grounds they return to nest on year after year. This is a perfect location and underwater paradise for scuba diving and snorkeling as the Meso American Reef system is the 2nd largest in the world next to the Great Barrier Reef. It holds marine turtles, dolphins, 60 species of coral and over 500 species of fish. There are fresh water cenotes that you can swim, snorkel and cave dive in and jungles to explore. So many beautiful beaches on the Caribe and literally hundreds of cenotes in the Yucatan - some simple and some with special features, all to be enjoyed.
The ancient walled city of Tulum treats you to amazing, ancient ruins that overlook the Caribbean sea. Xel-Ha and Yal Ku are two amazing lagoons that should be visited - kids (of all ages) will especially love these amazing natural water parks. Ancient Mayan ruins abound from Chichen Itza to newly uncovered ruins at Ek Balam. Explore the history of the area and its indigenous people who still thrive and live in Quintana Roo. Visit the neighboring pueblo of Chemuyil and enjoy mingling with the Mayan people - tasting their fresh, traditional cuisine in local restaurants, bakeries and fruit stands. For a totally unique experience, visit The Jungle Place just down the jungle road a few miles and play with rescued spider monkeys and then stop at Xhunaan Ha cenote to swim, jump or dive off the plank and cool off. This cenote is part of a huge underground river system that connects to 2 other lovely cenotes in the neighborhood. If you want a bit more city action, Playa del Carmen is just 30 minutes away. Shop along the famous Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) and enjoy local cuisine at the many great restaurants. Visit the culturally themed water park of Xcaret and X'Plor that has zip lines running across the jungle along the lagoon the pours into the Caribbean.
Come enjoy the tranquility of paradise, immerse yourself into a vibrant and ancient culture and feel the warmth of the Caribbean sand and sea at your feet! Whatever you decide to do, you'll love it!

About Kathy Brown
In 2005, we made our first journey to the Yucatan peninsula and fell in love with Mexico. Little did we know that 5 years later, we'd be property owners here. It is exciting to be at a point in our lives where we can now travel to our own little slice of paradise. The Mexican Caribbean is filled with adventure! We love sharing our travel experiences with our family and friends and hope that you enjoy the experience we've provided as much as we do. I guarantee you are going to have a good time! If this is your first trip to the area, you will fall in love with this most beautiful place in paradise!
Kathy Brown purchased this house in 2008
Why Kathy Brown chose Akumal
We've traveled to many beautiful areas of Mexico, but the water here is the most beautiful! It's so amazing with it's transparent turquoise hue and the abundant sea life that makes for incredible snorkeling and scuba diving. We've enjoyed exploring the many ancient ruins of Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, Tulum, Coba and Xel-Ha just to name a few. We love the culture, the people, everything about this special place! This community is so unique and colorful with many wonderful neighbors from all over the U.S. and Canada as well as from Italy, Austria and England. The neighboring pueblo is also full of beautiful and friendly local families, mostly of Mayan descent. There's so many more adventures in store for us that we could spend the rest of our lives here and not see it all.....but we are sure going to have fun trying!
