Hacienda De La Tortuga / Akumal:

The Riviera Maya is without doubt the most important tourist destination in Mexico: its diversity of attractions, the mysticism of the Maya culture, beaches and jungles as well as the exceptional quality of its services have made it a favorite for world travelers. The Riviera Maya is synonymous with paradise, and that's where we invite you to discover its best kept secret: Akumal. (Ocean Magazine).

Akumal, Place of Turtles in Mayan, is located in the heart of the Riviera Maya, just 37 km south of Playa del Carmen and 27 km north of Tulum.

Things to do:

Akumal is a water-lovers' paradise on the beach in front of the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. Akumal itself is a small but thriving beach community situated on 2 beautiful bays - our condo is on the Half Moon bay which is picturesque, quiet and romantic. You can spend a whole vacation right on Half Moon bay without leaving the area, with a beautiful beach and wonderful little restaurants in walking distance. Akumal has its own small supermarkets, boutiques and several dive shops, one of them just a short walk from Hacienda de la Tortuga, and water sports facilities. Right in the area of Akumal is great snorkeling, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing.

The condo is in walking distance of Yalku Lagoon which is a natural lagoon formation with crystal clear water -- a unique swimming and snorkeling experience. Several world famous Riviera Maya attractions are close by including the Xel Ha (15 minutes ) and Xcaret adventure parks, the towns of Playa del Carmen (1/2 hr), Tulum and Puerto Aventuras (20 min) and of course the renowned Maya archeological sites of Tulum (20 min), Coba (1 hour) and Chichen Itza (2 hrs)- plus many more Maya attractions are close by.

Akumal in the Mayan language means ‘The Place of the Turtles” - sea turtles can be seen year round and their nesting season starts in May, during the months of July and August you can observe turtles nesting and baby turtles hatching. Nightly 'turtle walks' are available and can be arranged with the Akumal Ecological Center.

Akumal has several shops for water-sports including open water diving, cenote/cavern diving (for which the area is world famous), snorkeling/catamaran trips, fishing and more. They all rent equipment and all have certified guides.

Bicycles and golf carts are available for rental. Yoga classes and Spa services are available in the main beach area (1/2 mile from Hacienda de la Tortuga).

Extras:

For special occasions (such as your honeymoon) we do offer a package that includes chilled Champagne (Prosecco), Flowers and fresh fruit in your suite ready upon your arrival. (Surcharge is 600 pesos (which approx $50) – please email to order).

How to get around:

Akumal is a small relaxed beach community, a car is nice to go out to our many nearby activities but not necessary if you just want to kick back and explore Akumal. In that case there are bikes for rent (approx $5 per day) or golf carts (about $40 per day).

How to get there:

Guests should fly in to Cancun International Airport which is approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes from Akumal by modern highway. The most popular methods of reaching Akumal are rental car, private airport shuttle or taxi. Public Bus transport is also available.

We are happy to arrange a private shuttle for our guests, please email :from the form for reservations ($90 one way / $180 round trip) Your driver will meet you outside of the Cancun International arrivals hall with a sign with your name.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing and comfortable apartment with stunning views and marvelous setting. Quiet, full of amenities, directly on the water with palapas and lounges and a moderate walk to town. Comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen, effective a/c; think beach cottage more than luxury estate - for us, this was more our speed than some of the all-inclusives we've been to in the area. Owner, staff, and daily cleaning service were very effective, super friendly and responsive. Looking to go back again!

Wonderful apartment with sea views and sound of waves!

  • 4 of 5

3 of us stayed at the apartment for 4 nights. We really enjoyed the light spatious interior, well-equipt kitchen, balcony with hammock and comfortable chairs. The master bedroom has a very comfortable bed with much needed air-con. It's convenient to have a bar/restaurant below even though the food is not that good for the price you pay for it.

The bay is nice for snorkelling ( I saw a turtle, colourful fish and a lionfish)and swimming. The best reef to snorkel in is a bit far out close to where the big waves break. It's important to know that there seems to be a constant wind and there are waves so it's not always ideal for a relaxing easy swim. Also when the sea is a bit rough it can affect the snorkelling. We were there at the end of May and we don't know what the weather does the rest of the year. The beach is sandy but as you enter the water there are rocks (and maybe some small sea urchins) so you have to take care or wear swim shoes. In the apartment there is a chest containing snorkeling and swimming equipment as well as some water sports equipment. Although if you are a serious snorkeller bring your own as some of the equipment is a bit incomplete and uncomfortable.

On the beach there are some loungers and umbrellas for your free use.

The cleaning lady comes every day. They provide drinking water.

The Akumal beach town is a collection of tourist shops and facilities. Akumal town is more authentic with cheaper shops and more locals but it's only worth to stop by for supplies. We recommend hiring a car to take full advantage of the area and to save money and time on taxi/bus rides.

All in all we recommend this condo

Nice condo on the beach

  • 4 of 5

The condo was spacious for the two of us. The kitchen was fully equipped. The beach view was great. Loved the restaurant La Lunita on the first floor of this small condo complex. The pool is very nice. I would happily stay there again.

Best Ocean Front View Yet

  • 4 of 5

This was a great accommodation. Best view of the ocean ever. Great staff, took care of all our initial problems (A/C and T/V) immediately. Daily maid service was a plus. Great value.

The property is in a beautiful spot, perfect for a laid back vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property has a fantastic view and is right on the ocean beach. Everything we needed was provided and the on site manager, Roberto was extremely helpful. The only reason we give it a four star instead of five star is that the unit is a little "tired". Could use a new shower head, some new pillows and updates, but it was clean, and worth every penny. We would stay there again.
