Wonderful Introduction to Mexico
"Doug and Susan
John and I would thank you both for our wonderful one month stay at your condo! We had never been to Mexico before and had concerns but they were quickly wiped away upon our arrival. Used U.S.A. Transfers to and from Airport and they were great. Friendly drivers and on time.
The condo itself was perfect and walking distance to the beach, restaurants, stores. Deanni greeted us when we arrived, and showed us the ropes.There was a nice bottle of red waiting for us - thank you for that. When we needed supplies/food, walking to Mega or Walmart was enjoyable. Nice to take side streets and check out the local architecture.
We met lots of lovely people both at the building and while we were out and about.Elizabeth and Lucien in 210 live very close to us here in Kanata believe it or not. Small world. Wilbur, the gardener is wonderful beyond belief. Hard working, pleasant, helpful. We exchanged email addresses - he wants to see pictures of snow! Kayla really did a great job of house keeping. There was a minor problem with the air conditioner and Joel fixed it straight away.
Before we left, I was really worried about safety issues. We never once felt anything but relaxed, comfortable, and safe.
I'm sure you have been told many times about the great places to eat but here's what stood out for us. For breakfast La Cueva del Chango or La Ceiba by DAC on 30th near Constituyentes are good choices. At lunch John enjoyed picking out the fish he wanted to be cooked at El Pirata on Calle 40 between Av 5 and 10.Can't get much fresher than that! El Fogon was great for inexpensive authentic Mexican fare. Great cold beer. We fell upon Aldea Corazon on 5th Av between 14y and 14B one day and were pleasantly surprised by a little oasis of wonderful hidden gardens. Very beautiful. Food was delicious. When we wanted a change from Mexican food we went to La Casa Del Agua. We had dinner there one evening and loved it. I had the lamb and John the short ribs. Both fantastic. Very nice atmosphere and a lovely evening out. We did try other places but too many to mention here. Thanks again for a wonderful stay."

"We had a great week of diving, and the place is very comfortable. We enjoyed hanging in the pool after our dives. We enjoyed some awsome sunsets from the beach across the street. The cabana on the 3rd floor is PERFECT for hanging a hammock and listening to sea gulls and waves."

"We have rented this condo 5 times from the Flake's over the last 10 years and have never been disappointed. Our son was 9 on our first vacation and wouldn't miss out on a trip here, even at 19! This year our friends rented the condos on either side of us and we had a fantastic 10 days.
The staff are great from Augustin who manages everything to the maids and security guard Jose who will wake you at night if there are turtles hatching or laying.
We have eaten at every restaurant in Half Moon bay and Akumal and our favorite for breakfast is Turtle Bay Cafe, dinner La Lunita, Que Onda for pasta, La Cueva Del Pescador for fish, La Buena Vida for happy hour, LoHa for pizza and drinks on the beach. The best is Teresa's "hole in the wall" across the street from Playa Caribe, she made us Ceviche and fish tacos with the barracuda and Mahi Mahi we caught when we went fishing and it was fantastic.
We BBQ when we don't eat out and do our grocery shopping at the Chedraui in Puerto Morelos which is 30 mins drive towards Playa Del Carmen.
Over the years we have visited all the theme parks and this year went to XPLOR which was a lot of fun, get there early to do the Zip Lines first before the crowds arrive.
The snorkeling in Half Moon Bay is like swimming in an aquarium, we also love snorkeling in Akumal and watching the turtles feed off the grass on the sea bed.
Akumal town is within walking distance and very safe to walk at night. We always rent a car so we can travel to different beaches but it's not absolutely necessary.
Joyce Flack has been a wonderful resource over the years and given us so much advice and information on where to go and the rules and regulations when visiting Mexico.
We will be back and I'm sure our friends will be joining us again."
