Every dream come true! Peace and quiet when you want it, great company and entertainment too. From the moment we arrived to a welcome BBQ the hospitality was outstanding.The grounds are immaculate, the home so beautiful - pictures do not do justice. We rented a car in Cancun and drove one hour to "The Far Side", stopping at Sam's Club on the way for some groceries. The beach is only 5 minutes away by car, or the modern, conveniet bus comes frequently. The restaurants in Akumal cater to international fare and the ones on the pueblo side are great local Mexican fare and very cheap. Our hostess guided us to many great choices and we met many other travelers like ourselves. We took a drive to the Mexico/Belize border (4 hours), parked our car in a secured lot for $3.25 per day and went to Orange Walk for a few days to see some of Belize. The highways in Mexico are new, well maintained and safe. Back at the Far Side we snorked daily at Ya Kul, Akumal beach and the turtle preserve. We visited Mayan ruins, cenotes and had great adventures. This year will be our third conceutive year and after seeing many other places we will return to the Far Side again! The sad part is leaving. We took our final swim at 6:30 AM in the spacious pool before driving back to the airport. The pool water is so clean there is no need to shower before dressing. Thank you Isabel for such a warm, romantic and wonderful place to stay.
