This is a very nice and well-maintained property right by the water’s edge (Akumal on the Half Moon Bay). The condo is spacious, well-furnished, very clean, and well-organized for renters. Although a bit remote from the hustle of standard tourist places in the area, it’s only 25 kilometers from Tulum and 35 kilometers from Playa Del Carmen, both connected by a good and fast highway and about half hour away. It is near (<1 km) to two lovely restaurants/bars on the beach (great for fresh fish). Diana, the landlady, is very gracious and attentive to her guests even from a distance. The condo is provided with all the amenities that vacationers may need, including basic snorkeling gear. The water in front of the condo is better than the water in the resort areas (in the hurricane season at least)–very clear, no seaweed and great for snorkeling. The nearby Akumal Beach is better for snorkeling and watching sea turtles than paid tours. Visits to Chichen Itza and other tours can be arranged from Akumal easily with almost no extra cost.
Highly recommended for any family wishing to have a special holiday on the Yucatan coast.
