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

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!

An extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished accomadation in a fantastic location. The doors open onto a rugged, rocky coastline which never fails to take your breath away, and it is a short walk from the white sand beaches of Akumal. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance as well. It makes a great base for seeing the area by car, but it is also a perfect place to spend time in and relax in its own right. Highly recommend!
