Of course, your favorite outdoor space may be your private palapa overlooking Yal Ku Lagoon: A true jewel of Mexico. When you are ready, you have your own private entrance to magnificent snorkeling for both the novice and experienced swimmer. Protected from the ocean waves, you can float along and see schools of sergeant fish, blue tangs, and others. Many varieties of parrot fish chomp on the algae on the rocks while angel fish and others swim about. You can also swim towards the inlet to the see: a shallow sandy area where you can sometimes see a turtle or a ray. (We encourage wearing vests while snorkeling and have vests in a variety of sizes from young children to adults.)
Other great snorkeling and diving are available nearby including in caves and cenotes as well as the nearby coral reefs. If you are interested in diving - we can connect you with some great dive masters - perfect for someone wanting to learn and become certified to experienced divers who do not want pre-packaged dive excursions.

If you already know North Akumal, you know that is a family-friendly, quiet place where you can relax. You can hardly find any better place for snorkeling: both in Yal Ku Lagoon where you have your own private Palapa by the lagoon and direct entry, and along the reefs: rent a boat or just swim out to magnificent coral reefs teeming with fish. There are also several places to take Padi certified diving lessons. You will be diving among the fish on your very first day. With the fully equipped kitchen, you can choose to fix your own meals, hire your caretaker, Rene, to fix you some special dinners you are sure to remember, or go out to any of the area restaurants. Many of the restaurants are directly on the beaches of Half Moon bay and Akumal bay: you rarely need a reservation, you will always be welcomed, and there is never a dress code. You may also want to go to any of there nearby towns or attractions including Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Xelha, Xcarat, and more.
Other Activities: Snorkeling, archaeological ruins, jungle tours
Year Purchased: 2005
About: We had been visiting Yal Ku Lagoon for almost 15 years and always loved staying in Akumal, especially directly on the lagoon. We traveled extensively and found ourselves saying, 'this is nice, but it isn't Akumal', or 'it isn't Yal Ku'. So when we found a villa for sale directly on the lagoon, we could not pass it up. After restoring Casa Delfin, we were relaxing in the rooftop pool at night wondering what we were going to do next. We both looked over at Casa Romero which was in terrible shape. Two weeks later we had an agreement to purchase it and renovations began only a few months later.
Why Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
There are only a few properties with direct access to the lagoon and the entrance from Casa Delfin is probably the best of all. When one became available, we could not pass it up.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
If you have ever been to North Akumal, you know it maintains the laid-back atmosphere that has gone from so many places. We have the feeling of belonging to a community. In addition to the magnificent snorkeling in Yal Ku, one of the things that we like the best is that Akumal is enjoyed by Mexicans as well as tourists. We have gotten to know the many local restaurants and enjoy eating out as being able to cook our own food and entertain friends and family.
