“The best things in life are not things. They are people, places, and experiences...”
- Experience Akumal -

Akumal is a friendly and peaceful beach resort in the Riverera Maya near Cancun Mexico that is easy to get to and difficult to leave! We offer a luxury condo to make your trip to Akumal a perfect experience!

Situated in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Akumal is located 62 miles south of Cancun. Akumal was the first resort on the Riviera Maya. It is an exclusive destination for scuba divers, lovers of beach and blue clear water, and people who yearn for an unhurried, relaxed atmosphere.

The condo is located directly on the white sand beach. The complex is large enough to have excellent facilities, but small enough to ensure that you have an open, uncrowded experience.

Big water, brilliant colors in the sky, close the day in a peaciful way.

The white sand seems endless, providing a private place to contemplate why it took you so long to treat yourself so well!

When you're not on the beach, you can lounge by the pool and catch-up on that book you have been wanting to read.

"We really needed a break. The ice and snow of Michigan had taken its toll. We also wanted to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in a warm place. We reserved the condo, booked a flight, and had two weeks in paradise!"

The 'Akumal Effect': "Within two hours after our arrival, we became complete "beach slugs", oblivious to the concerns of the wider world."

Great Eats! There are many great places to dine, and many places to eat in the open air directly on the waterfront. The La Lunita restaurant right downstairs has wonderful gourmet food (and Marguritas)!

Akumal means "Place of the Turtle" in the Mayan language, and if you snorkel here, you just might see one swimming alongside you. You’ll definitely see coral and beautiful fish in the clear, sparkling waters. This tourist-friendly little town is about an hour south of Cancun—but it seems light-years away from everything.

“The scenic beauty of Akumal is astounding, and opportunities to immerse yourself in it ample. The reef is so close to shore that a boat is not needed to reach the incredible biodiversity of Akumal's waters. Or, you can just sit in your chair and watch the day go by.”

The mangroves provide a rich nursery for sea life, and a pleasant hike.

The Yal Ku Lagoon, less than a ten minute walk from the condo, is a beautiful lagoon which must be explored. Mangroves, schools of fish, the mixing of warm fresh and salt water, all add up to a wonderful experience.

The ancient Myan ruins of Tulum is close by. The original name of Tulum was "Zama"", meaning "place of the dawning sun". The ruins have graceful columns and elgant carvings which testify to the achievements of the ancient Mayan culture. The magnificance of the ruins, plus the scenic beauty of the place, make the trip to Tulum worthwhile during your stay at Akamal.

This place is a diver's dream. Clear waters and abundant aquatic wildlife produce SCUBA dives to remember.

This is better...
