Why we love Akumal!: When we 'found' Akumal 7 years ago we fell in love with this charming village and Playa Caribe. We knew that this was where we wanted to own our vacation home. We have not been sorry we made this decision and continue to love the time we spend there. Akumal is in the heart of Riviera Maya, the home of the Mayan people, and they are gentle, loving, honest people and we are proud to call so many our friends. Akumal is home to many wonderful people and is filled with restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores, medical services so that you will really have all you need for a great vacation.
We begin our day walking the few steps from our door to the warm waters of Half Moon Bay to snorkel before breakfast. This is the beginning of a perfect day in our own piece of paradise---Playa Caribe and Akumal. Our days are filled with beach time, enjoying reading under a palapa/on our oceanfront patio or sipping a margarita on the beach at our own 'happy hour' before walking to dinner at La Lunita.
Both of our 2 bedrooms are very spacious with lots of closet space and storage. All beds have handwoven Oaxacan bedspreads, foam 'toppers' for snuggle down comfort, high threadcount sheets and pillowcases. A local Akumal artist, Juan Indio, handpainted the headboards above each bed.
There is an additional single size air bed and linens for the airbed in needed.
Off of each bedroom is a patio looking westward to the jungle. The patio off the master bedroom has a charcoal bbq where we do our grilling. The patio off the second bedroom has a small table, 2 chairs and a tiled bench and is a great place to have coffee in the morning.
