It finally happened! From the first time we visited Akumal we knew we wanted to retire there. This is now our main home and is only available to guests a few weeks of the year when we return to the US to visit family. We keep the calendar updated, so please check to see if it is available before requesting a quote.
This is the Akumal Condo you have been looking for IF........
• You need some sun, fun, and relaxation in beautiful Akumal, Mexico
• You love to snorkel/scuba dive in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean
• You want to be just steps away from the beach and a wonderful covered swimming pool with a view of the Caribbean or the new terrace pool in the bright Mexican sunshine
• You want to be off the main road, but within walking distance of attractions, restaurants, and the beach
* Wi-Fi wireless Internet is included.
This beautiful two-bedroom, two-bathroom Condominium is located in a tropical garden setting in north Akumal. It will comfortably sleep 4 people. An additional guest would be accepted, but that person would have to sleep on the couch. There is an additional charge of $30/night for any persons staying in the condo in excess of 4 people. The condo is on the second floor and is equipped with air-conditioned bedrooms, ceiling fans in all rooms, daily maid service, and a fully-equipped kitchen.
There are three wonderful snorkeling areas within walking distance. Half-Moon Bay is located directly in front of the condo complex. Yal-Ku Lagoon is a short two blocks away. This lagoon is often equated to swimming in an aquarium. And, don't forget the beautiful reef at Akumal Bay which is located about a mile south of the complex. If you have a vehicle or take a taxi, there are countless other snorkeling spots available and a wonderful selection of scuba diving shops if you care to dive the Caribbean or the extensive fresh water caverns in the Riviera Maya.
The famous sandy/coral beaches and great snorkeling of Half Moon Bay are just down the steps and through an open breezeway.
The unit is bright and light with an open design and high ceilings. From the main entry you will access the open living and dining area. The living area includes comfortable seating and access to a private terrace that overlooks the tropical gardens. The dining area includes a large table with seating for six.
The completely furnished kitchen includes bottled drinking water, cookware, coffeemaker, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, oven/stove, utensils, dishes and, of course, a blender for the margaritas. The daily maid service allows you to enjoy yourself while the unit is cleaned up, beds made, and dishes washed!
The master bedroom has a king-size bed with private balcony - a perfect place to string the hammock and relax. The second bedroom has two twin-size beds and its own private balcony.
Each morning the singing of tropical birds awaken you. During the day you can enjoy the crystal clear waters full of colorful fish, tour ancient Mayan ruins, shop, or just relax on the beach with a good book. In the evenings, you can walk to one of the several excellent restaurants for a romantic dinner on the beach.
This condo is located in the courtyard. While it is not beachfront it does have an ocean view from the private bedroom terraces and Half-Moon Bay is easily reached by walking through an open breezeway. There you will have free use of the beach, sun shelters, lounge chairs, and fresh-water showers.
This condominium is ready and waiting for you..... Please note that the condo is not available to walk-ins. This is our main home and is only available a few weeks of the year.

Lovely place with a great location
We stayed here for a week in March 2018 with our 2 teenage children and there was plenty of space for us all. The condo is clean & bright and very well equipped with everything we needed. The owner provided helpful local info and there are lots of guidebooks in the condo too. The location is great for access to the beach & snorkeling in Half Moon Bay, Yal-Ku lagoon (with amazing snorkeling) is a short walk and there are several restaurants within walking distance too. Akumal is a long walk or short bike/drive, where you can swim out with the sea turtles and there are more restaurants and a few shops. The unit also has 2 pools, as well as sun beds facing out to the bay for hanging out. There is space to park a car around the side of the building. From the unit it is easy to snorkel out directly to Half Moon Bay and see the reef and lots of fish.
If you are visiting we would recommend a rental car as it makes it much easier to access other area attractions. The Akumal area is changing so do your research even if you have been here before. There are beautiful beaches, wonderful cenotes for swimming, eco-parks and incredible Mayan ruins in the area so you will definitely not run out of things to see or do.
Every thing you need for a great beach vacation. Very comfortable very clean condo.
Nice spot with great restaurants in walking distance. Daily maid service was greatly appreciated. Very well equipped kitchen and the best Wi-Fi that we have ever had in a VRBO. Would stay here again.
Lovely Condo on Beautiful Half Moon Bay
Very clean, quite and comfortable second floor condo with views of the beautifully landscaped garden, pools and ocean. Steps from the palapas, lounge chairs and ocean. Snorkeling in Half Moon and Akumal Bay was fantastic. Great ocean breeze throughout the condo thru windows on all 4 sides. Fans and air conditioning in bedrooms worked very well. Property management and housekeeping were great. Our thanks to Peggy for responding to all our questions promptly and enhancing our experience by providing maps and lots of information on transportation, things to do in the area, restaurants and services. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Terri & Henry
Wonderful place to spend a week
We stayed at La Iguana for 1 week in February. It was a good launching point for most everything that we wanted to do. The condo itself is very clean and bright. The other guests at the condo complex were friendly and helpful. The staff was also very accomodating. The information that the owners provide ahead of time and in a binder in the condo is extremely helpful. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Peggy!
Nice quiet location
The condo is roomy and quiet. It's located on the upper level of a duplex. The living room and both bedrooms have balconies. The living room balcony affords a view of the palm tree covered court yard. Both bedroom balconies have partial sea views. The bedrooms have AC; the rest of the unit does not. The beach is only a few steps away though the archway of the main 4 level building. Palapas are available for use of the complex residents. The beach is rocky but excellent for snorkeling; the water temperature was at least 25C (in Feb). Water shoes are nice but you can also make it work without them. Beware of the sea urchins. The Yal-Ku lagoon is a 5 minute walk away. It's also very nice for snorkeling but rather expensive; 14USD for adults, 10USD for children as of Feb 2017. The snokeling in front of the condo is just as good. The rooftop of the main building affords a great view of the beach and jungle; perfect for watching sunrise and sunset.
We rented a car at the airport. Beware that the car rental companies all require one to buy extra liability insurance. In our case this added almost 250USD to the cost of the one week rental; the rental itself was 20USD. You can get to the unit by taxi but we also drove to Aktun Chen, Tulum, and Coba so the car was probably worth it.
Our stay was wonderful. We did have colder weather than they have had for a while but we still enjoyed our time at La Iguana. Peggy was available to help when needed as well as Hector and Alvar. We had a dead battery on our car one morning and they had some one here within 30 minutes. The maid did a fantastic job as well. Akumal is one of our favorite places to stay. We will be back!
