the owners are Carol & Marty Klein. We are a retired couple that purchased the condo in construction in 1991. It is our goal to make this the best condo and La Iguana the best complex in Akumal. Our other owners are agreement to do all we can to make La Iguana Condos the best in Akumal. I (Marty) love to talk to prospective renters to tell them about the condo and the Akumal area. I have a lot of suggestions for excursions and for restaurants in the area. Because I have owned now for 20 years, I have a lot of knowledge about what the area offers the visitor. Serving our renters is on the top of our list so that they will have a memorable vacation in Akumal and will return and recommend us to family and friends.
Owner purchased this Condo in 1991
Why Owner chose Bacalar Municipality
We were visiting the area in 1991 and thought this was paradise. We purchased the property while it was in construction when we saw the bay, the location and the view we would have. The snorkeling in Half Moon Bay was wonderful and the fact that the water was so clear and that waves did not break on the shore but broke on the other side of the protective reef. We have a large covered private patio behind locked doors. This patio has a hammock, sofa, table and chairs and a storage area. There are also Caribbean views from this patio. The condo does not have a/c because we have not needed. Our unique location at the northern end of Half Moon Bay and on the north side of the building gives the condo exposure to breezes off the Caribbean, from the north and from the west. These exposure provide almost constant breezes that keep the condo comfortable. We also have high speed fans throughout the condo and have 2 tower portable air coolers that can be placed where ever needed. Even during the hot months of July & August we are almost always comfortable in the condo. Because we do not have a/c, we can rent the condo for rates that are below our competition that does have a/c. The condo is always in top condition and our on site manager is there to handle any problems instantly.
What makes this Condo unique
A top notch condo on the sand for incredibly low rates. $175/night in high season and $125/night in low season. Two kid friendly pools on the grounds.Quiet privacy, amazing views from almost everywhere in the condo, wonderful breezes that blow off the water. The amazing amount of activities that are available, the wonderful native people that service the area. The brightness and comfort of the condo. The wonderful management team that is on the grounds and assists with any problem we or our renters may have. Our great maid Ana who always has a smile on her face and does a great job of cleaning the condo everyday. All the wonderful artwork throughout the condo. The fully equipped kitchen that has all the appliances you would need. Yal Ku Lagoon is a wonder and is only a few hundred yards from the condo. We keep our rates very low because we do not have a/c. We have high speed fans throughout the condo and supplement that with portable tower air coolers. Because the condo is at the far northern end of Half Moon Bay, we benefit from our location and the fact that we have exposure to breezes from the east (off the bay), from the north (northern winds are very common in Akumal) and from the east. These exposures and our screened windows that open to let the breezes in, keep us cool and allow us to keep our costs down and therefore our rates very low. Air conditioning is very expensive to maintain in Akumal and why pay for something that you won't need. I have many renters who will attest to the comfort of the condo in the summer. During the months of September through April it almost never gets to the point that one would use a/c but condos that have it charge higher rates all year.

The condo has been well maintained and we were very comfortable during our stay. The maid service was excellent. The condo has lovely furnishings and tasteful art pieces. We would stay at this condo again should we return to this area. Additionally, we did not use the air conditioner.
Rosemarie, so glad you enjoyed your stay at Iguana #5 in Akumal. I have owned the condo now for 27+ years and have tried to make it a place where visitors can enjoy their stay at this beach front condo. My wife and I have personally collected all the art works that are on the walls of the condo in Mexico and mostly from the Yucatan area. Our maid Silvia has been with our complex for many years and does a wonderful job of cleaning on a daily basis. I would love to have you return.
Our group (4 adults and one 2.5 year old) were very comfortable at La Iguana #5. The views are beautiful. We liked the privacy of being on the second floor and the convenience of not being on the top floor. The condo is spacious, has a very comfortable layout, and was stocked with everything that we needed to cook our meals. The staff at La Iguana was very accommodating, always filling our water, and available when needed. The house cleaning was thorouh and Silvia even cleaned on days when we told her that it was not nessessary. The best part of the condo is the location. This area of the Yucatan has become increasingly busy in the years that we’ve been visiting, and we were so happy to be at the end of the road, at the North end of Half Moon Bay, away from the crowds and hustle and bustle around Akumal beach. We loved the beach lounging area and thanks to the current, this location is not plagued with as much sea grass as other areas. We enjoyed snorkeling right from the condo. The breeze at the condo is lovely and the AC was only needed due to needing to close the windows when there was noise outside at night and during naptime for our little one. We loved checking out the lizards on the property and crabs that visited at night. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The condo is not fancy and it could use some updates, but it was clean, comfortable, and a great value. Martin was friendly, attentive, and informative from the moment that we booked the condo. You can tell that he really wants guests to have a pleasant experience at the condo. We can’t wait to return!
Beautiful Views & Excellent Location, Steps to Snorkeling
Extraordinary views from the Wall of Windows! My teenaged kids and I enjoyed the views, location and easy beach access. We snorkeled every day right off the beach. A short, 5 day trip was easy and relaxing in the spacious accommodations of Iguana #5. Martin was helpful from the minute I submitted a request, to an hour before getting on the airplane when I realized my husband would not be able to come with us, to answering my call about an appliance while staying there! His manager Hector was friendly and welcoming. There are delicious restaurants nearby, we tried to sample every flavor of Lucy's Ice cream! The kitchen was handy and we ate two meals at the condo each day. Cenote Cristilano was a very relaxing morning trip and easily reached by car. I had concerns about traveling alone with kids in Mexico, but everything felt safe and no problems whatsoever! I'd recommend this rental property
Beautiful views of the ocean in a private setting
Martin's condo is everything he says it is. We stayed with another couple for 7 nights. It was my second time there and their first. The views are absolutely stunning and the property is very well kept. Marty and the manager will make sure they can do anything to accommodate your stay and the other employees of La Iguana become your friends. We made most of our meals in the condo so the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The fresh water was in constant supply which was also nice for our weary friends.
Our favorite things to do in Akumal was snorkeling in Yal Kul lagoon (a 5 min walk from the condo), dinner at Del Pescador near Turtle Bay and happy hour at La Buena Vida where you can have drinks and eat while laying in a hammock right on the beach. Just south of Akumal you will find beautiful beaches and wonderful cenotes everywhere you go.
Some may question being on the north end of half moon bay but please don't. At La Iguana you aren't far from Akumal but get much more peace and quiet than the resorts and places closer to town will offer. If you are adventurous skip renting a car and just rent bikes for 5 dollars a day and take collectivos to go to tulum. It's faster to ride a bike to town than take a car in my opinion, lol. VEA ATV tours was a major highlight of this vacation so look into it if you like atving through the jungle! Thanks again Marty for a fabulous time!
My husband and I spent 2-weeks at this condo. The pictures do not do it justice. Looking out from the living room, you feel as if you are on a boat. You can't see land below, all you can see is the beautiful Half-Moon Bay and beyond. The sunsets at half-moon bay were some of the best I have ever seen. The bed was super comfortable. The daily housekeeper was a real treat. We did a lot of exploring. We went to 3-different ruin sites, Coba, Chitzen Itza and Tuluum. All of them were different from the other. We went snorkeling in Akumal Bay and saw many Sea Turtles. My husband went diving in the Cenotes. .Dos Ojos and Chiken Ha. He said it was quite an experience. We went over to Cozumel for the day. Great diving and lots of restaurants and shopping. Laguna Yal-Ku is also walking distance from the condo. Great place to snorkel. There are many restaurants within walking distance of the condo. My favorite was La Lunita for dinner. Will definitely stay at this condo again.
Relaxing winter get away
My wife and I and two old friends spent almost three very relaxing weeks at this condo. This property met all our needs-we all commented on the really comfortable beds. The location in the northern end of Akumal was very quiet, yet very close to everything we wanted to do. Every day we marveled at the great view from the living room and kitchen and enjoyed the lovely beach. We enjoyed snorkeling (the reef is right off the beach), walking the beach and eating at one of the great local restaurants. We made a number of short trips to visit nearby towns, Mayan ruins and other beaches-they l were great places to visit. Having daily maid service and friendly folks at the front desk was a real plus. We all agreed that we will return to enjoy this condo again.
Birdwatching, caving & cave diving, Mayan ruins, jungle excursions. I do have some weights that I would be glad to loan to any interested renter to work out with. We have a cook that can prepare a meal for renters. Ask me about it if you are interested.
