Nancy and Tony DeRosa came upon Akumal in 1983. They fell in love with the area and scuba diving. In 1985 they designed and built a duplex on this very site. During construction of the building, they discovered the magnificent underwater cave systems in the area and their lives would be forever changed. Deciding to stay in Mexico full time, they rented out the second condo to visiting cave divers and continued to explore the underwater cave systems. Exploration was in full swing, and more and more divers requested to stay with the DeRosas. By the mid 1990's, property next door was purchased and a six condo building was constructed. By then more people were discovering the beauty of the area....not just divers. In the late 1990's another property was purchased, adding another building with 6 more condos and a pool.........all properties are directly on the beach! Soon a four lane highway was completed from Cancun to Tulum and many large all inclusive hotels started to populate the area. Villas DeRosa remains a small family owned and operated resort located on a beautiful beach isolated from the impersonal world growing up around them. Enjoy a simpler time on a beautiful private beach when you stay at Villas DeRosa.
