Archaeological Sites: The Yucatan Peninsula offers many attractions: exquisite beaches along the Caribbean coastline, reserves and waterparks. But among the Yucatan's most fascinating attractions are the amazing Mayan ruins which can be found throughout the area. Countless of archaeological sites all with it’s own particular architecture into the dense jungle or on a cliff by the Caribbean sea.

Visiting archaeological sites (Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, and Ek Balam) is a popular activity for tourists. All the archaeological sites in Mexico are overseen by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). Most have opening hours from 8am to 5pm. Often the best time of day to visit sites is in the morning or late afternoon, to avoid the heat of the mid-day sun. Guided tours are offer to have a complete information about this worderful sites and will allow you to get a lot more out of your visit.

Eco Parks: The Riviera Maya has several of the world's finest natural parks, most of them are ecologically oriented. There are incredible water parks, with countles adventure activities.

Xel-Ha aquatic adventure. Explore creeks, lagoons, natural wells and ancient caves a living invitation to enjoy nature and explore the legends of an ancient culture; the Maya.

Crococun: began as a commercial farm intending to sell crocodile skins, but now Crocodile is a Park & Regional Zoo in the Riviera Maya.

Xcaret & Xplor: encounter with nature and offers recreational activities. Wait until night falls. The lure and mystique of ancient Mayan rituals come alive with the re-creation of a Maya ball game.

Aktun-Chen: interesting formations in the cave, you are right in front of a breathtaking 'cenote' of crystal clear water and a no less magnificent vault with thousands of stalactites.

Kantun-Chi: Kantun-Come and enjoy this magical paradise, swim in the wonderful fresh water cenotes and explore underground.

Cenotes & Beaches: Cenotes are the natural wonders of the state of Yucatan are innumerable and some of the most important and unusual. In the Yucatan there are over 3000 cenotes, with only 1400 actually studied and registered.

The Maya called them dzonot, which the conquering Spaniards translated as cenote. The Motul dictionary, a dictionary of Mayan hieroglyphics, defines dzonot as 'abysmal and deep'.

Cenotes are magical, enigmatic and unique in the world and were once the only resource for fresh, sweet water in the local Yucatecan jungle. They were the sacred places of the Maya for that reason, but also because they represented the entrance to the underworld.

Riviera Maya’s spectacular beaches are its main claim to fame, edged with golden colored, tiny grained sand. Composed of innumerable microscopic plankton fossils, it remains cool to the feet despite to the strong sun.

A gorgeous counterpoint is provided by the ever-shifting colors of the Caribbean.The water is warm enough for swimming all year

Lovely house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in an idyllic location, and only a few steps from sea. Very well presented and equipped and great daily maid service. Yal-ku lagoon, several shops and restaurants only short walk away. We were so lucky to see turtles nesting and hatching on the beach during our stay, and saw them most days either in Half Moon bay or at the main Akumal beach. We will certainly use this apartment if we return to Mexico.

Peaceful and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Condo Mirage was the perfect stay for our family. The turtles were laying eggs at night, the reef was busy with sea life, and the beach was empty. The condo was nice and kept very clean. We didnt need much, but the staff at the condo were always were friendly and helpful. And of course, drinks in the afternoon the guys with the guys next door at LaLunita was a daily highlight!

perfect for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

The ocean was steps away! This large condo was perfect for our relaxing visit to Akumal. One bedroom for mom and dad, one for 2 teen girls, plenty of space to hang out and eat and play games - and then there are hammocks too! But the best is the beach and the chairs that are set up for you. Though there's still a sargasso problem, you begin to ignore it. We snorkeled right in the shallow bay (bring water shoes) and walked down the beach to La Buena Vista. Could also walk into town, but next time we'll get bikes. So much to do close by, but so nice to stay put! (Easy when there are margaritas at the restaurant next door) Thanks, Marilu and manager Roberto!

Probably the best bay in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Condo No 2 and would be happy to recommend it.

Akumal has a couple of bays and Half Moon Bay is described as North Akumal. I reckon this is the best bay because the wind and tides bring seaweed to the shore and it accumulates on the further south bays. Bring something to wear on your feet because the shore is rocky when you go swimming or snorkelling. The snorkelling is good - we saw many different fish and even had a chance to see a turtle one day in the bay.

There is Akumal town which is separated by a busy motorway and pedestrian bridge to Akumal beach area.

Akumal beach area has several restaurants, tourist type shops and a couple of small supermarkets. We found the small supermarkets had a small selection of foods and mainly catered for snacks & drinks - so if you plan to cook/eat in, its best to find a larger supermarket.

Condo No 2 is 1.5 Km from the main tourist area which is along a pleasant paved road. There are taxis if you prefer and Roberto who manages the block will get a taxi for you.

The condo has 2 big bedrooms and bathrooms and a comfortable sitting area.

It has 2 double patio doors that open up to a terrace and from here your about 10 steps to the sea.

On the beach there are sun loungers and chairs with shade provided by permanent parasols. When we were there at the end of June, beginning of July, we would find turtles had dug holes in the sand to lay there eggs every 2 to 3 days. The beach was well maintained and tidied up each morning.

We found the condo to be clean and well maintained - the maid came in each day and made sure bathroom and kitchen surfaces were clean - the maids look for a tip each day.

We chose Akumal Dive Shop, the main centre you pass heading into the restaurant area, to scuba dive. They were excellent, professional and friendly.

We eat at the Bakery quite a few times as well as Lol Ha and La Buena Vida. Wear insect deterrent at Lol Ha which was a bit of a nuisance at times - I think its because it's right on the beach. We used La Lunita for "room service" sometimes for lunch - they were happy to deliver.

Although there is an information folder in the Condo, it'd be nice if there was a guest book where people could add there views, tips, advice and experiences - maybe something to think about Marilu?

Felt safe everywhere and found it to be a friendly place.

We had a great holiday here!

Owner's Response: Dear Philip, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other HomeAway readers. We are pleased to read that you had a memorable time with us and enjoyed our facilities. We will pass on your comment to our team in order to put a guest book available in our unit. Even though many guests prefer to post their comments online and doing them more public, we still think that's a good idea! Thank you so much for mention it! We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to our piece of bay called paradise. Warm regards, Marilu

Wonderful! Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for almost 3 weeks over the holidays. The owner could not have been more helpful leading up to our stay, and the maid, Miriam, was extremely attentive. This condo is beautiful - so clean, lots of amentities, you can hear the ocean roar as you sleep...and enjoy it with your breakfast on the spacious patio. You will never want for fresh towels or drinking water. It was a total "home away from home" where we Canadians could wake up every day to beautiful sunshine glistening off the ocean out front. Even in the peak holiday period, comfy beach chairs for 4 were always available. And Roberto, the complex manager, was full of local knowledge and so helpful. The only thing that we would prefer to change is the rocky ocean out front....nothing to do with the unit itself. I got a bad coral cut on the 2nd day and it is still healing. It is a very rocky beach and I'd hoped to waterwalk in the ocean daily. But if you like to snorkel, it's a dream. And the calm, quietness of Half Moon Bay is so preferable to the touristy insanity in town. Great restaurants you can walk to or a short drive away. This is a special treasure to rent...we felt very lucky! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Dear Family Schneider, Thank you for your kind review on HomeAway. We are pleased to read that our Condo was perfect and that our associates delivered great service during your holidays. We are sadden to read about the little incident with the coral and hope that you are already fully recovered. That is why we always recommend to all our guests to wear water shoes to enter to the sea or to walk along the beach. It is very common the existence of corals in this area as we face into this second largest coral reef in the world after the largest one in Australia. And yes, as you say, is a paradise for divers and other visitors who enjoy snorkeling. We hope to welcome back soon again for another lifetime experience!!! Warmest regards, Marilu :)

Just 60 miles south of Cancun, the charming village of Akumal is a great central location to many of the areas attractions and wonders. The well-known eco-parks, Xel-Ha and Xcaret are under 20 miles away. Yal-Ku Lagoon is 3 minutes drive away, and a vast array of Mayan Ruins and cenotes are within 15 to 90 minutes away. Akumal is a quiet, laid back village that still offers exceptional restaurants, stores, three dive shops and even an Internet cafe!

If you are looking for an amazing Caribbean vacation and prefer an intimate beachfront experience as opposed to a high-rise mega resort, you're in the right place! Enjoy!

Other Activities: Visit and dive in cenotes (caves and caverns), archaeological sites, swim w/dolphins, zip lines, jungle canopy sky cycle, jungle snorkel adventures
