Car: Recommended

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

Akumal, “Turtle’s 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 new Rivera Maya Golf Club of Bahia Principe is only 10 minutes away from the house
