A bit off the beaten path, which is actually nice. Located off a dirt road in the jungle, a short ride away from Akumal beaches and Akumal Pueblo. This is a great place to relax while being close to all of the sights in the area (30 minutes North from Tulum and Tulum ruins), Akumal itself has amazing beaches, snorkeling at Yal Ku lagoon and swim with the sea turtles right from the beach~! Great restaurants nearby, convenient location for 'collectivo' bus rides or taxi from main road just a moderate walk from the front door. Akumal is simply beautiful and retains the small charm that is not Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, or even Tulum (though not too distant, as Akumal is located about 30 minutes South of Playa Del Carmen).
Wake up to singing birds and sounds of the jungle, yet near all the local sights. Simple living for those seeking more 'experience' than just a hotel. The best part is that Fabian and Dana, your hosts, are located nearby and can give local and interior travel advice and are just wonderful. Highly recommended. A small, yet well appointed kitchenette is a bonus if you prefer to save by cooking your own meals.
If you have friends or family, want to plan a small romantic or large family gathering, I am sure that Fabian and Dana can accommodate. Those with rental cars will find this location most convenient, and those with an adventurous spirit will appreciate not being in the concrete jungle, but waking up in the real thing.
