Archaeological Sites: The Yucatan Peninsula offers many attractions: exquisite beaches along the Caribbean coastline, reserves and waterparks. But among the Yucatan's most fascinating attractions are the amazing Mayan ruins which can be found throughout the area. Countless of archaeological sites all with it’s own particular architecture into the dense jungle or on a cliff by the Caribbean sea.

Visiting archaeological sites (Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, and Ek Balam) is a popular activity for tourists. All the archaeological sites in Mexico are overseen by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). Most have opening hours from 8am to 5pm. Often the best time of day to visit sites is in the morning or late afternoon, to avoid the heat of the mid-day sun. Guided tours are offer to have a complete information about this worderful sites and will allow you to get a lot more out of your visit.

Eco Parks: The Riviera Maya has several of the world's finest natural parks, most of them are ecologically oriented. There are incredible water parks, with countles adventure activities.

Xel-Ha aquatic adventure. Explore creeks, lagoons, natural wells and ancient caves a living invitation to enjoy nature and explore the legends of an ancient culture; the Maya.

Crococun: began as a commercial farm intending to sell crocodile skins, but now Crocodile is a Park & Regional Zoo in the Riviera Maya.

Xcaret & Xplor: encounter with nature and offers recreational activities. Wait until night falls. The lure and mystique of ancient Mayan rituals come alive with the re-creation of a Maya ball game.

Aktun-Chen: interesting formations in the cave, you are right in front of a breathtaking 'cenote' of crystal clear water and a no less magnificent vault with thousands of stalactites.

Kantun-Chi: Kantun-Come and enjoy this magical paradise, swim in the wonderful fresh water cenotes and explore underground.

Cenotes & Beaches: Cenotes are the natural wonders of the state of Yucatan are innumerable and some of the most important and unusual. In the Yucatan there are over 3000 cenotes, with only 1400 actually studied and registered.

The Maya called them dzonot, which the conquering Spaniards translated as cenote. The Motul dictionary, a dictionary of Mayan hieroglyphics, defines dzonot as 'abysmal and deep'.

Cenotes are magical, enigmatic and unique in the world and were once the only resource for fresh, sweet water in the local Yucatecan jungle. They were the sacred places of the Maya for that reason, but also because they represented the entrance to the underworld.

Riviera Maya’s spectacular beaches are its main claim to fame, edged with golden colored, tiny grained sand. Composed of innumerable microscopic plankton fossils, it remains cool to the feet despite to the strong sun.

A gorgeous counterpoint is provided by the ever-shifting colors of the Caribbean.The water is warm enough for swimming all year

Home from home !!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely a wonderful place in a wonderful location !!! The condo offers all the comfort one could wish for and a lot of effort was spent to make the condo truly a home from home. We felt welcomed and what more can we say? Customer service and maid service was excellent and owner/customer contact was very good and all questions were promptly answered.
The location of the condo was amazing, directly on the beach. The sea was crystal clear and the snorkelling wonderful. Beach was cleaned every morning. We will definetely return next year !!!

Fantastic place if you prefer lazy days.

  • 4 of 5
Akumal and Half moon Bay is friendly and welcoming place for people who prefer a calm spot. The apartment is perfect for a family or two couples. Clean and nice. We appreciated the snorkling, the restaurants and the relaxing atmosphere. We recommend to hire a car so you can explore the area.

A beautiful piece of paradise - 100% Positive

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect with this vacation, destination, and home. Making the arrangements and reservations with the owner was easy and quick. Additionally she provided excellent information about the arrival (covering everything from car rental to scuba shops). The on-site management company was perfectly efficient and the manager was very informative with additional requests and questions. All employees (gardeners, security, maids) were professional, kind, courteous, and very effective at their jobs. The condo is exactly as pictured and plenty spacious. It is beautifully decorated while still being very comfortable and welcoming. We spend most waking hours on the beach or on the covered patio. Everything is quite new and in great working order. With regard to location, I find Half Moon Bay to be an ideally situated in that it is within walking distance of everything a vacationer could need, and yet still the beach is mostly deserted. You will find too many restaurants to try in 1 week, enough convenience stores to grab essentials and more, and if you require, even a little shopping. Do try the lionfish ceviche at the little restaurant "in a tent" on the half moon bay street. I did find it convenient to have a car for trips to the supermarket and to organize independent sightseeing. I will return.

Nice Condo on the Beach

  • 4 of 5
This condo is directly on the beach; bottom floor, perfect for us with a 3 1/2 year old. The owner was very nice to deal with and even gave us a big surprise when we arrived. Muchas Gracias Marilu! Very clean, cheerful and roomy. Lots of pots and dishes but could use some bigger bowls; we just used a big pot to mix a salad. We needed a can opener and one of the caretakers got us one.

We picked this condo because directly in front of the condo out to the reef is the best snorkeling and there is a little spot that is clear of rocks for easier entry into the ocean; and they have wi-fi and a pool.

The TV in the second bedroom and the telephone did not work when we tried to use them.

There is a restaurant on site and we received a 15% off coupon but only used it once for dinner. The prices were high and the dinner was tasteless with a $110 appetizer that was minuscule. This place gets good reviews but maybe we hit it wrong. You may also hear some noise from the restaurant if a party is going on as the condo is right next to the restaurant. It didn't bother us.

We enjoyed spotting snakes, iguanas, agouti, coutimundi, racoons and squirrels
around the condo. My grandson adopted the managers cat. In the water we saw eagle rays, stingrays, barracuda, angelfish, grouper, huge parrot fish, turtles, octopus, tons of fish. We also drove over to Ria Lagartos to see the flamingos (awesome) with a stop at Ek Balam which was fabulous.

We were very comfortable at this condo. When we got home my grandson said he wanted to live on another planet. I said, "What planet do you want to live on?" He said, "The one where they speak Spanish."

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy,
Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm glad that your grandson would like to live in the planet that speak Spanish, Planet Akumal, a dream in the middle of the Mexican Caribbean coast!.
I asked to our manager on site (Roberto) for your review and he said that he went to Mirage # 2 and he turned the TV of the Guests' bedroom on and it worked. In fact he sent me a picture that he took. About the intercom it is not working since it got damaged by the last storm we had (one day before your arrival). As he explained when you were there, it is an intercom and don't work as a regular phone. I am very glad that you as a Family had a great time at our Condo. The Restaurant? I am sorry but I can´t do much about it. Some people like it. Others don´t. Depending on the wind you get to hear a little of the noise from the restaurant. If there is a party, you might get to hear some more noise. Thing that didn't happen, and I think that it didn't bother you according to your review. Thanks again and I hope to see you very soon!!!
Kindly,
Marilu

Beachfront and perfect

  • 5 of 5
This condo is perfectly located on the beach, well-maintained & beautifully decorated. It is also well-stocked with books & DVDs! We had a great holiday here over New Year; the beach was never busy & there was always a sun-lounger free. The apartment (and the beach) is left spotlessly clean every day.

Akumal is a lovely quiet place; the 'centre' with some shops & small souvenir market is within walking distance, as is the fantastic lagoon which has wonderful snorkelling. My only complaint about Akumal would be the astronomical prices of the two small food shops - much better to stop at the large Centro Maya supermarket on the way down from the airport and stock up there (directions are provided in the arrival info). The restaurant next door to the condo is lovely & not too expensive.

I would 100% recommend this condo - we had a wonderful stay.

Nice retreat and operations centre

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 days at this property in July. We found it to be clean, with an excellent location and good maintenance. Overall the experience was very good.
We used this location as an "operation centre" because every day we had an outside activity. We visited Xel -Ha, very close to Akumal, Coba archaeological site, and X Caret.

Just 60 miles south of Cancun, the charming village of Akumal is a great central location to many of the areas attractions and wonders. The well-known eco-parks, Xel-Ha and Xcaret are under 20 miles away. Yal-Ku Lagoon is 3 minutes drive away, and a vast array of Mayan Ruins and cenotes are within 15 to 90 minutes away. Akumal is a quiet, laid back village that still offers exceptional restaurants, stores, three dive shops and even an Internet cafe!

If you are looking for an amazing Caribbean vacation and prefer an intimate beachfront experience as opposed to a high-rise mega resort, you're in the right place! Enjoy!

Other Activities: Visit and dive in cenotes (caves and caverns), archaeological sites, swim w/dolphins, zip lines, jungle canopy sky cycle, jungle snorkel adventures
