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.

The stunning countryside surrounding Akumal is the ideal location for bike rides and jungle walks, exploring the wonderful variety of plants and animals lucky enough to call this part of the world home. The Yucatan peninsula is adorned with many beautiful and mysterious Mayan Ruins. The best known in the area are the fascinating Chichen Itza, (it is advisable you take a guided tour to understand some of the incredible findings here), Coba and Tulum. 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!

Blue Tang B Luxury Townhouse was beautifully decorated with local artifacts such as handpainted Mexican tiles, textiles and sculptures, so you felt immersed in the area. The rooms were spacious and all well equipped. The private decktop pool was a very special feature, the views, and the snorkeling right out the door were fabulous. I am an artist and could paint right from the deck in all directions. We saw so many fish ih such an amazing environment of calm water, and the sea turtles are not far away. Not everything was maintained in tip top shape, but that was no problem as it was part of the laid back, relaxing atmosphere. You felt a bit native, rather than in an over done, artifical resort. Restaurants were within walking distance. The owners and their employees were very friendly and responsive to any needs--including getting out flat tire fixed. We have the best memories and would love to go back. Have already been recommending it to friends.

The underwater view is incredible. The condo is very well equipped. Great for a big family. Pool on the roof is a great plus. Daily cleaning provided. Would definitely stay again.

The house is gorgeous, the furnishings great, and very authentic Mexican. The location could not be better. The lagoon is absolutely amazing for a morning snorkel, afternoon dip, or evening cool-down. We spent hours sitting on the balcony overlooking the lagoon playing cards and sipping margaritas. The pool on the roof was perfect for an afternoon dip. The town is great, and the local restaurants were perfect for our group. We just loved the Buena Vida. We were there two years ago and are still talking about how much we loved it! And the caretakers were awesome. They took great care of the house, and were very helpful! I can't wait until my next visit!!
