My husband and I took our four kids here (13, 11, 9, 1) this year for vacation. We all had a fabulous time for sure! We had been to akumal before, snorkeled there while staying in Playa, and knew we would come back to stay. Our kids snorkeled a bit, found they didn’t like it much, but still had a great time in the pool!
There is plenty to do, right there and close by, but the town of akumal is still small, not terribly busy and friendly!
Highly recommend. The property was awesome and we had some rental car issues while there and Enrique, the property manager, was so super helpful. So grateful for him!
