Make a holiday rental house or beach villa in Akumal, Mexico your home away from home

Akumal is a beach resort on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This stunning seaside town does not like to advertise itself too much as it has long been a secret getaway, where the stunning natural surroundings, diverse nature and magnificent beaches create a tropical haven where you can truly let it all go and relax. Akumal beach resort originated in the 1950’s as an exclusive resort for scuba divers, especially due to the turtle populations which favour the bays along the Yucatan Peninsula.

Things to do on holiday in Akumal, Mexico

Akumal holiday rentals are loved so much partially due to the fantastic white sand beaches that stretch out in front of them. Backed by palm trees and surrounded by breathtaking scenery, the beaches make the ideal place to lie back and relax, before taking a dip in the blissfully warm waters of the Caribbean. The coral reefs of the three bays upon which the Akumal beach resort lays, Half Moon Bay, Aventuras Akumal Bay and Greater Akumal Bay, are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving at anytime of year.

The further you travel along the coast, the more secluded the beaches become, although even during the height of the summer, there are never crowds anywhere in the town. There is an array of fine restaurants, shops, dive centres and fun beach bars in the town, so you shall want for nothing whilst staying in your luxury Akumal holiday rental villa.

However, as you walk or cycle through the jungle, or even half way through a round of golf, you will most likely stumble across something!

Large sofa bed in living area. Windows due south onto North Amumal bay. Sunbeds in front then concrete path into sea for snorkeling - water shoes needed. Yal Ku snorkel park 5 minutes walk. Food at La Vida Buena outstanding. I went in early November, sea beautifully warm, days 30C, nights 20C. Road from freeway very bumpy first 300 yards. Don't tell anyone about this place, it's magic. Very well supplied kitchen. Daily maid service. Small corner shops in walking distance. Medium 24hr OXXO 2km, big supermarket 15 minutes drive away.
