About Dan Freeman or David Zucker
Dan Freeman had a varied career in the food service industry with his own catering company for ten years then as Director of Sales and Marketing for the Philadelphia Zoo and New Jersey Aquarium, and then as Creative Director, designing affairs for a New Jersey catering company. David Zucker ran a paper products manufacturing company. In our leisure life we were divers and became hooked on cave diving, which brought us back to Akumal year after year. It was always our intention to move to this paradise when we retired. We drove down with three cats (for whom the house is named), and acquired a rescue dog and outside cat while living here. We congratulate ourselves on our decision every day as we walk the dog and watch the waves break along along the iron shore.

Why Dan Freeman or David Zucker chose Akumal
Like so many others who chose to live in or migrate periodically to Akumal, we came, we saw, and we were conquered by the its natural beauty and welcoming atmosphere . When we decided to buy a house in Mexico, we wanted to locate to the safest and most secure region of the country, where crime rates are lower than in all U.S. cities and most towns. The proximity of the reef and Yalku Lagoon and the numberless cenotes and underground caverns surrounding Akumal were definite draws. However, the primary draw was this great community, friendly and laid back, filled with interesting people from all over the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
What makes this Apartment unique
There's nothing like breakfast on the plaza in the mornings after a short walk along the sea or lagoon with Chaparra, our rescue dog, greeting the runners, other dog walkers and the workers coming from the Pueblo across the highway. In the afternoons we can just walk around the corner to go snorkeling in Yalku then relax in the serene beauty of our private garden. In the evenings there are our nearby restaurants where we can dine with friends at a reasonable price.

We spent a week at Casa Gatos. Dave and Dan were very welcoming. The condo is very private and secluded. The grounds as well as the condo were very clean and well tended. You get a homey feeling because of the comfortable setting but also because of the contact with all of the neighbors. Highly recommended. The condo is next to Yal Ku. Unless you enjoy walking you should rent a car because it is a long walk to the main area of town.
