Additional Information

Villa Gauguin is located in Akumal, without doubt the quietest and most picturesque village at the heart of the Mayan Riviera.

Akumal is only 22 miles from Playa del Carmen (the fastest growing town in Latin America), 55 miles from Cancun International Airport and 16 miles from the Tulum Mayan ruins.

Akumal, Turtles nest in Mayan, is a favorite place for the sea turtles to lay their eggs. Akumal has two bays with beautiful beaches, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving as the corral reef is very closed to the coastline.

In the surroundings of Akumal, there are some 200 entrances to the cenotes, subterranean caves with depths up to 170 yards and very clear waters. The main centers for scuba diving in cenotes are in Akumal.

For the golf fanatics, the Playacar resort in Playa del Carmen, has a world-famous 18 holes course and in Puerto Aventuras (15 mn from Akumal), there is a 9 holes course.

For nature lovers, Akumal is close to various ecological parks like:

Xel-Ha 10 Miles

Sian Kaan 25 Miles south of Akumal

X-Caret 20 Miles from Akumal

Aktun-Chen Caves 3 Miles of Akumal

There are two sandy beaches located in Akumal.

Akumal Beach: Located at the entrance of the village (2km from the villa)

Half Moon Bay Beach:Located 300m from Villa Gauguin

Extraordinary stay at Villa Gauguin Akumal!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family had a blast during our stay, stunning views from every corner of the house. You could walk to the lagoon and snorkel which we all enjoyed very much. Francisco and Gladys were always at our service and are both excellent cooks. Overall there isn't anything we would change, the pictures don't give justice to this beautiful house.

Best Trip Ever

  • 5 of 5

Villa Gauguin has to be one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen- and I do a good amount of group travel in houses similar. The price was so incredibly affordable, and the village/view/everything was perfect.

We utilized the concierge to pre-stock the house, and other small requests, and they were so willing to help. The house manager & housekeeper were so incredible & accommodating.

Everyone at Luxury Retreats was truly top notch-- I can't wait to use them again for our next trip to Dominican. They have a guest for life from me! <3

Thank you all!

Great location - superb sea views !

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing holidays in a beautiful location - when watching out of the back of the house, we felt as being on a desert island with the birds as neighbors. Very spacious house with plenty of room for everyone - stunning views from nearly all the windows.
