***EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC! Ethereal beauty, powdery white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, coral reefs, turtles and abundant sea creatures, prehistoric ruins, serenity—this is the Maya Riviera and Playa Caribe #4. Ahhhhhhh....let it work it's magic on you!! Our 2nd floor luxury but affordable unit with 2 bd 2 ba provides the ultimate in privacy yet with fabulous VIEWS OF BOTH the aquamarine CARIBBEAN AND the verdant JUNGLE, quiet yet just steps from the beachfront, ability to watch turtles and rays cavort in the bay waters. We are unique in Akumal with enticing amenities like CENTRAL AIR so that you really are cool during the hot days and warm nights, RO PURIFIED WATER from all taps so you can drink it directly just like at home and not get sick, a stunning POOL on the beach where you can float and also watch turtles and pelicans in the ocean nearby.
Playa Caribe #4 is newly redecorated in soft Caribbean colors and textures of Mexico and the Caribbean, with three custom-made stained glass windows, a Mexican mask collection, and many pieces of Mexican cultural art, it gently brings Mayan ambience into your life. Both bedrooms have private balconies and a third balcony is off the living room onto the beach where you can dine or read while watching turtles and rays cavort in the ocean waters below. There is FREE wireless internet service.
The unit sleeps 6: the master bedroom with a comfy king bed (and high thread count linens) has views both of the sparkling ocean and the lush jungle, with an ensuite full bath with tub/shower and two sinks. The second bedroom has two double beds with romantic mosquito canopies and a full bath also with tub/shower. Each bedroom has its own TV with DVD and its own separate patio.
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, many small appliances, serving dishes, spices, cloth napkins, and candles—everything to make your stay enjoyable . . . . and memorable. Dining is at the breakfast bar or at the dining table. There is daily maid service (you do not need to do dishes or make your bed if you don’t want to!), 24-hour security, and room safe. We are concerned about our environmental impact, and have been awarded the CEA Ecological seal of approval for environmental protection.
Playa Caribe #4 is located about an hour drive's south of the Cancun airport off the 307 main highway, 40 steps from the water on the sandy beach in the charming seaside village of Akumal. Playa Caribe is within walking distance of gourmet restaurants and breakfast cafes, and abounds with activities like snorkeling or scuba diving on the offshore reefs, swimming in the unique cenotes, tours to Mayan ruins, or siestas.
Akumal is a peaceful resort, away from the maddening crowds of the “touristy” cities, yet has all the amenities you could want including many water and eco-jungle activities, delicious dining, bars, and comfort. The condominium itself has only 12 condos to preserve the small town atmosphere.
The Maya name Akumal means “land of the turtle” because turtles actually do lay eggs and hatch here during the summer; this is an incredible life affirming experience to watch.
Other activities: The village of Akumal is only 20 minutes drive south from the glitzy Playa del Carmen, which hosts the ferry to the island of Cozumel, and has many activities should you desire to leave your tranquil life in Akumal for the day or evening. The Maya ruins at Tulum are only a 20 minute drive south of Akumal.
***Walk the beach at sunrise and sunset, watch for turtle egg laying and hatching, drink a margarita under a palapa, read the book that you’ve been meaning to start, forget your troubles under the stars, and peacefully dream about your next visit to enchanting Akumal and Playa Caribe #4.

About Shari Stern
Ron and Shari have been married for years and share a love of the environment, scuba diving, and Akumal. We are both University professors (mathematics and biology) in Southern California and have two grown daughters who also dive.
When traveling around the world, we scuba in exotic locations, gazing at new animal life and witnessing the modernization of cultures. I have collected masks from these travels that represent the cultural and religious arts of the countries. You can see a portion of my mask collection on the wall above the dining table. Despite all our cuontries visited, we still love Akumal the best--it has the most to offer
Shari Stern purchased this condo in 2007
Why Shari Stern chose Akumal
We love to SCUBA dive, relax in a quiet atmosphere that still has the amenities we want. For us, Playa Caribe is magical, and has it all--the Mexican-Maya ambience, delicious food, balmy weather. It is a location where we bring our family to renew our loving relationships. We came down for about 15 years, always intending to buy but never doing so, and then we found #4 available in Play Caribe and we excitedly bought it. We plan to sometime spend the entire summer down here; wouldn't that be wonderful. Bliss!!!!!!!
What makes this condo unique
The beautiful view of the sparkling turquoise waters, the quiet and peacefulness of our area, the diverse sea life just off shore, with fabulous views of both the SEA AND the JUNGLE from the condo--all serves to make Playa Caribe #4 special. The pool is beautiful and you can rest on the side and see the Caribbean sea; snorkeling and diving is right off the beach; purified water that is safe to drink is available from all taps; you can adjust central air for your temperature comfort.
Snorkeling is right off shore and you can walk to the many restaurants that have delicious food, or even cook in our fully equipped kitchen.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a great time at Playa Caribe #4. We’d wake up each morning and have breakfast on the terrace with your incredible view to start our day of adventure. Wow, the BEST. For those of you who like family adventure parks, XPLOR is fabulous. Well run, best cenotes, best ziplining around. Even the food was excellent. About $100 US per person might sound pricey but everything is included. My daughter loved her Akumal Dive Shop on Akumal Beach for her scuba diving tours—friendly, professional service, with good equipment, and they even carry women’s tanks! Dos Ojos for diving and snorkeling was great!
