Hacienda De La Tortuga / Akumal:

The Riviera Maya is without doubt the most important tourist destination in Mexico: its diversity of attractions, the mysticism of the Maya culture, beaches and jungles as well as the exceptional quality of its services have made it a favorite for world travelers. The Riviera Maya is synonymous with paradise, and that's where we invite you to discover its best kept secret: Akumal. (Ocean Magazine).

Akumal, Place of Turtles in Mayan, is located in the heart of the Riviera Maya, just 37 km south of Playa del Carmen and 27 km north of Tulum.

Things to do:

Akumal is a water-lovers' paradise on the beach in front of the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. Akumal itself is a small but thriving beach community situated on 2 beautiful bays - our condo is on the Half Moon bay which is picturesque, quiet and romantic. You can spend a whole vacation right on Half Moon bay without leaving the area, with a beautiful beach and wonderful little restaurants in walking distance. Akumal has its own small supermarkets, boutiques and several dive shops, one of them just a short walk from Hacienda de la Tortuga, and water sports facilities. Right in the area of Akumal is great snorkeling, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing.

The condo is in walking distance of Yalku Lagoon which is a natural lagoon formation with crystal clear water -- a unique swimming and snorkeling experience. Several world famous Riviera Maya attractions are close by including the Xel Ha (15 minutes ) and Xcaret adventure parks, the towns of Playa del Carmen (1/2 hr), Tulum and Puerto Aventuras (20 min) and of course the renowned Maya archeological sites of Tulum (20 min), Coba (1 hour) and Chichen Itza (2 hrs)- plus many more Maya attractions are close by.

Akumal in the Mayan language means ‘The Place of the Turtles” - sea turtles can be seen year round and their nesting season starts in May, during the months of July and August you can observe turtles nesting and baby turtles hatching. Nightly 'turtle walks' are available and can be arranged with the Akumal Ecological Center.

Akumal has several shops for water-sports including open water diving, cenote/cavern diving (for which the area is world famous), snorkeling/catamaran trips, fishing and more. They all rent equipment and all have certified guides.

Bicycles and golf carts are available for rental. Yoga classes and Spa services are available in the main beach area (1/2 mile from Hacienda de la Tortuga).

Extras:

For special occasions (such as your honeymoon) we do offer a package that includes chilled Champagne (Prosecco), Flowers and fresh fruit in your suite ready upon your arrival. (Surcharge is 600 pesos (which approx $50) – please email to order).

How to get around:

Akumal is a small relaxed beach community, a car is nice to go out to our many nearby activities but not necessary if you just want to kick back and explore Akumal. In that case there are bikes for rent (approx $5 per day) or golf carts (about $40 per day).

How to get there:

Guests should fly in to Cancun International Airport which is approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes from Akumal by modern highway. The most popular methods of reaching Akumal are rental car, private airport shuttle or taxi. Public Bus transport is also available.

We are happy to arrange a private shuttle for our guests, please email :from the form for reservations ($90 one way / $180 round trip) Your driver will meet you outside of the Cancun International arrivals hall with a sign with your name.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I finally made it to Hacienda de la Tortuga. Cherri, you didnt tell how absolutely wonderful this little piece of paradise would amaze us. The property is quiet, well removed from the bustle of south Akumal. The condo was more than we had envisioned. Full kitchen was wonderful. We cooked some amazing meals there. The master br was Huge, plenty of closet and bureau space so we could move right in. The spacious lr/dr was more than ample for having guests over. The A/C in the bedroom kept the whole flat cooled to a comfortable 72°F even midday. Housekeeping was always pleasant. Rena and Miriam were delightful. And Roberto, the property manager, world class. He even helped with making some offsite arrangements and daytrip plans without the usual resort fee. Plenty of parking. Property is very secure, never felt like we had to clutch our belongings on the beach though we did make use of the in room safe to keep all our travel docs in one place. The beach is wonderful, the reef is easy to swim out to even for a novice snorkeller. I cant thank Cherri and all the staff for an amazing and unforgettable 2nd honeymoon

Wish I owned the condo.

  • 5 of 5

What more can you ask for? Beachfront, water view from the terrace, pool, palapas on the beach, restaurant on first floor, and walking distance to La Buena Vida. Everything we needed to enjoy our stay was in the condo (even a wine bottle opener). The bed ended up being more comfortable than the one we slept on for 5 days in at the Bahia Principe Akumal later that week. This is an older condo, and the furniture and appliances are well worn, but this was not detrimental to our stay. We didn't use the TV, but we noticed that you had SKY available. We will stay longer come November, and if it was up to my wife, we would stay there the whole time. Excellent customer service on the part of Cherri and the manager Roberto. We highly recommend this condominium to couples for some good relaxing time together. Thank you for the experience. Frank

Outstanding unit in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week here and loved the place. It was well outfitted (we like to cook, so the well appointed kitchen was appreciated) and being right on the beach the view, sound of the waves, and sunrises were really breathtaking. Its a few blocks from the center of Akumal, so is nice and quiet with just a shot ride into town if desired. We used it as a base to see Mayan ruins in Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza, plus spend some quality time on the Akumal beach. Would definitely recommend the condo complex, it has a restaurant on the ground floor and is very well managed.

Great place in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time renting with Cherri. She is great to work with and very helpful. She even went out of her way to try to find a different rental for some friends. I can vouch for all of the nice things others have said about the condo and complex. The condo is well appointed. The complex is well maintained with plenty of palapas and chairs. Can't beat it if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the big hotels.

Fabulous condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This bright, airy condo is fabulous, right on the beach with terrific views. My husband and I were visiting this area for the first time and we will definitely return. Cherri provided directions and many other helpful tips to make our stay even more enjoyable. She thinks of everything and will answer all your qeustions promptly. Her one bedroom condo in Hacienda La Tortuga is very well equipped, modern conveniences and very comfortable and relaxing and larger than the pictures appear. There's lots of room to spread out and the terrace is also roomy and delightful. I can't say enough good things about her place. The location can't be topped. There's a great restaurant, La Lunita, right downstairs open for lunch and dinner. You can dine outside or even order in if you choose. The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. Although it's nice to have a car, everything is within walking distance -- the Yal Ku lagoon for snorkeling and the little town of Akumal. There's some other great restaurants along the beach as well. We will definitely return.
