                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Akumal is a beautiful fishing village known locally as the place of the turtle. Snorkeling with the turtles in the bay or with the beautiful tropical fish in Yalku Lagoon are among our favorite things to do. When you are tired of the beautiful sandy beach and palm trees, Akumal offers plenty of activities; several diving outfits offer various levels of diving including bubble diving for children 8 years and older, fishing, sailing sunset cruises or jungle ATV tours. The village also has many cute gift stores, two grocery stores, a spar, gym, tennis court, basketball court and a weekly market. A variety of local restaurants offer excellent and inexpensive local and international dishes.

                  Within a 30 min drive you can reach many other places: Playa Del Carmen with its famous 5th avenue shopping, dancing and nightlife, Tulum with numerous restaurants and gift shops, three eco water parks, Maya ruins, a monkey sanctuary and swim with dolphin parks. There are also numerous sandy beaches and cenotes for more swimming snorkeling, diving, and zip lines.

                  Day trips could include; taking a ferry to Cozumel where you can explore both the island and famous reef, exploring the extensive ruins of Chichen Itza, or enjoying one of the many tours offered in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, one of the world’s largest reserves.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: My husband (John), American, is recently retired from the IMF. I (Rosemary) am English and a retired Nursery School Director. We searched for 5 years for a Caribbean beachfront location to spend several months each year during our retirement. When we accidentally found the gem that is Akumal along the Riviera Maya in Mexico we knew we had found our second home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Akumal:
                  Akumal is an exceptionally friendly, quiet little beach town, with fabulous snorkeling, offering coral reef and sea turtles right from the beautiful white sand and palm tree beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Mi Casa del Mar is an attractively designed building of 14 condo units on four levels. The common areas include a large shaded lobby, ocean-front infinity pool, lounge chairs, shaded gazebo and outside shower. The condo is about a 5 minute walk from Akumal village and the beautiful Akumal Bay. It is close enough to enjoy the powder white beach and numerous turtles of the bay and the delicacies of the local restaurants, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of being off the beaten track. Walking 5 minutes in the other direction takes you to the picturesque Half Moon Bay and other restaurants and gift shops. About a 20 minute walk from the condo is Yalku Lagoon where for a small fee you can snorkel in the calm, clear waters of the lagoon with hundreds of tropical fish.
