We fell in love with Akumal, known as the place of the turtles, and so will you. Away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun, you can walk 40 steps to the turquoise Caribbean to our private beach and snorkel with sea turtles in warm Half Moon Bay. Renowned Yal Ku Lagoon, which is sometimes called an outdoor aquarium, is within walking distance. PADI certified dive shops are located on both Half Moon and Akumal Bay. We even have a shaded pool overlooking the beach and bay for those really hot days, as well as the complex's large family pool.
Our spacious, thoughtfully appointed 1600 square foot condo is located in a peaceful lush garden setting. Each bedroom features a king size bed and the second bedroom has an additional twin, making us an ideal place for your family or to share with another couple. The condo offers daily maid service (including the dishes!), soaps, linens and towels along with hair dryers. Bottled water is provided in our fully equipped kitchen. The dining area seats six, plus three breakfast bar seats. WIFI is available, although it can occasionally be sketchy. The condo also offers a TV monitor for streaming and DVD use.
Akumal has many fine restaurants. The ambiance is warm and very casual everywhere. You can walk the beach to a few of the restaurants and curl your toes in the sand as you sip your margarita and enjoy the wonderful seafood or steak. American and continental cuisines are featured along with Mexican fare.
Akumal is centrally located for many nearby excursions. The Mayan ruins at Tulum, the only archeological site right on the Caribbean Sea is 15 miles away. Coba, another Mayan site is just west of Tulum. Puerto Aventuras offers a nine hole golf course or travel a little farther up the road to Xcaret. Playacar lies just to the north of Xcaret and features a fine 18 hole golf course. Bahia Principe lies minutes south of Akumal, near the quaint town of Chemuyl, and offers a wonderful golf course as well. Playa del Carmen offers the vibrancy of city life with its shopping along Fifth Avenue and you can take the ferry to Cozumel from there. There are too many other fun activities to do in the area to list here.

Great location, charming unit.
We had a lovely two week stay at La Iguana. The complex is quiet and quaint with palm lined paths and iguanas too. The unit is near the back of the complex, tucked away with great privacy and out of the wind when it was blowing. Only a thirty second walk to the pool, less than a minute to the seaside loungers and palapas. Good snorkeling right from the shore, beautiful views, and a short walk to three restaurants and two basic corner stores.
Definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a quieter vacation in a beautiful locale.

Quiet spot on Mayan Riviera
We loved our stay at this condo. It was extremely spacious, well-equipped, a couple of steps from the pools and ocean. Best of all was the beach. It was great being able to just wade out in front of the complex and immediately start snorkeling and seeing great fish and corral. This is not a sandy beach and not great for just swimming, but perfect for snorkelers. The only disadvantage was the relative lack of restaurants in walking distance from the condo. We quickly tired of the two nearby and had to drive to town (very close) for more options. Overall, wonderful stay!
Charming, clean and cozy condo on the coast
We spent a little less than a week in this surprisingly affordable 2-bedroom condo. Owner Deb Jones was very communicative with lots of very helpful information about the area and advice on how to get the most out of a stay. The housekeeping was amazingly efficient and kept the place spotless. We chose to shop for and cook our own food rather than eat out, and the well-stocked kitchen was more than adequate for our needs. Firm beds, ceiling fans and A/C rounded out the experience. Very highly recommended; we hope to visit the same place again soon.
Loved the location, Akumal, clean and large condo
We had a wonderful visit! We loved being in Akumal-snorkeling at the lagoon, off the beach at the property and with the turtles in Akumal bay. We loved how everyone walked around Akumal carrying their snorkels. Restaurants in the area were attractive and with great food. Close to Tulum where we spent at morning at the ruins and the gorgeous beach. Also had a great experience at the Akumal monkey sanctuary.
Throughly enjoyed our stay
Property was beautiful with the sound of the waves and cool breeze coming in through our bedroom windows. Away from hustle and bustle. Well kept up with close proximity to snorkelling. Huge space, well equipped kitchen, nice patio to have out meals on facing tropical garden.
The only issue was wifi and no tv but I am sure if I pressed harder it could have been solved.
A great vacation, we would go again and next time bring the kids.
Nice clean, comfortable stay
Quiet location with well setup 2 bedroom condo. Nice staff and close enough to food and groceries. No beach to speak of, typical slightly rocky bay but easily accessible with water shoes and better for snorkeling than a sandy beach. Great snorkeling in the lagoon 5 minute walk away. Only negative is wi-fi was down, although this was really nice at times too!
