DIY Snorkel Holiday

  • 5 of 5
My spouse, twelve year old son and I just returned from a week at La Iguana #5 and could not have been happier with our snorkel holiday. The condo is fully equipped as a home away from home. The Mayan art and furniture add a distinct touch to what is a fabulous layout. The condo would be ideal for two couples but could in a pinch sleep six. If you are looking for a relaxed, quiet spot for snorkelling, checking out the local cuisine, and the turtles in Akumal Bay then this is it. Marty recommended a car rental but we opted for a transfer from the airport, a stop for groceries and we were all set. Bike rentals were readily available and this suited our needs for checking out the local area and getting out and about. In the end, we came for the snorkeling just seconds away and were not disappointed. Marty was a consummate host and offered information and was readily available when I had questions. This was an affordable, low season getaway that I can only heartily recommend. Many thanks Marty for a wonderful week!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5
The view from this condo is literally breath-taking. The pictures do not do it justice. We kept wondering if we were in a dream; it is so open you almost feel like you are outside. We really enjoyed the snorkeling right in front of the condo (for good swimmers) and also in Akumal Bay to see the turtles. The on-site staff were very friendly and helpful. We rented this knowing there was no AC; although at times it was a little warm, the breezes kept it comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the memory foam mattress on the master bed was too thick for my comfort. So I just slept on the cushions on the benches in the main room which were very comfortable (my daughters loved their bed in the second room). We had our own hammock to hang on the porch (but were offered one by the staff). I hope to be able to return here again and have a feeling that some of our family members may be looking into it after seeing our pictures! Marty was always very prompt and thorough answering all of my questions. We also went to Coba and Tulum; and really enjoyed a beach restaurant to the south of the ruins- San Francisco(have to drive into town and take left up road on coast). Also enjoyed La Buena Vida on road to condo, and ice cream at Lucy's in the Turtle Bay Bakery and Cafe (many restaurants were recommended we just didn't have time to eat at all of them). Recommend grocery shopping in Tulum or on way down from Cancun area; kitchen is well stocked for cooking (though no spices except salt and pepper). Recommend having a rental car if staying at this condo. An amazing condo for a great price!
