Akumal condo description

You can't be more surrounded by tranquil beauty than from this beachfront, beach-level condo on Half Moon Bay in Akumal. Akumal is a quiet, very private, residential community of low-rise condos and private villas generously spaced out along the beach, with many fine restaurants and world renowned walk-off-the-beach snorkeling and diving. Akumal also has many offerings for visitors, done in a low-key but high quality way, including a Spa, a gym and a Yoga Studio. Local condo management is onsite to assure continued quality throughout your stay.


Here, just an hour’s drive straight south on a well paved road from Cancun, you escape the hustle and bustle, kick off your shoes, don your swim suit, and plunge into the turquoise Caribbean Sea. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Walk bare-footed in T shirt and shorts to a beachfront restaurant for fabulous fajitas and a margarita if you like. All the local restaurants in Akumal treat their water making the dining completely safe as well as delicious. We've also now installed a high tech water treatment and filtration system that provides 100% safe drinking water on tap in our kitchen, for your safety and convenience.

The condo, situated on a white sandy beach, has gorgeous water views and is private because of beautiful tropical landscaping surrounding the patio. Inside,our newly renovated and decorated condo the rooms are light and airy, brightly color coordinated with Mexican Caribbean charm. There are open views of the water from the living room, dining room, kitchen, and Master bedroom suite. The unit has an open floor plan with a step down living room opening onto a beach level patio large enough for dining or relaxing in a Mayan hammock.

Both ceiling fans and air conditioning are available for your comfort. Most of the time the gentle breezes make air conditioning unnecessary. We now have 2 TVs with DVD players, and a lending library of DVDs in our accommodating guest office. Effective July 09 we will have satellite TV service. Your US cell phone should work from this locale, and you can access e-mail and the Internet through our high speed wireless and Ethernet connection. An iPod speaker deck allows you to enjoy high fidelity sound from your own iPod. Access to an ATM in town is available. Rental of bicycles and golf carts along with frequent mini buses plying the highway connecting Akumal to the other coastal communities make renting a car optional during your stay.

Akumal has two mini-supermarkets, with a good selection of American products. A small market suitable for last minute items, is just a minute’s walk from the condo. Several large American-style supermarkets are nearby in Playa del Carmen, and a new, large supermarket carrying a wide range of American brands, fresh produce, etc, is just 10 minutes down the highway. Laundry service is available in Akumal as are local cooks to prepare regional cuisine right in your kitchen. Ask at the front desk. The Maya Riveria is replete with gorgeous natural attractions centered around water. Akumal has two dive shops and excellent snorkeling and swimming are right out the door in Half Moon Bay, in Akumal Bay, or in Yal-ku Lagoon, famous for its snorkeling. Numerous cenotes (fascinating natural fresh water-filled holes and caverns popular for swimming and diving) and beaches all within 12 miles of Akumal include Tankah, Aktun Chen Caves, Xpu-Ha, Paradise and Dos Ojos. Xel-Ha (10 miles away) is a wonderful snorkeling park and Xcaret (18 miles) combines water sports, snorkeling, Mayan culture, and history. Both have swim with the dolphins programs. The other new outdoor-oriented theme park, XPlor, is a short drive away. Other area sports include deep sea fishing, beach horseback riding, golf, and tennis. The Sian Ka'an Biosphere, a beautiful reserve with wildlife and miles of deserted beaches is south of Akumal and Tulum. There are two major nature preserves in the Yucatan, which are particularly popular with birders. If you love beautiful beaches, there's no need to leave Half Moon Bay, but if you like to explore, there are miles of beautiful beaches all around for a day excursion.

There are numerous Mayan Ruins nearby including Tulum, only 15 miles away, Coba (25 miles), and Chitzen Itza, a long day's trip via the new Tulum road. There are many shopping options, including charming shops in Akumal, shops near Akumal at the Hacienda, in Puerta Aventuras, and extensive options in Playa del Carmen (22 miles). There are many fascinating Mexican and Mayan crafts, with silver and Talavera pottery being big favorites. Playa is a large town with great shopping, great restaurants, and night life. From here board a boat for an all day trip to Cozumel, another great spot for diving, snorkeling, and deep sea fishing. Playacar (21 miles away) is a Resort development with an 18 hole golf course, tennis and swimming. Puerto Aventuras (ten miles away) offers tennis, golf, swim with the dolphins, and restaurants.
