Why Choose Akumal Vacation Rentals?

Akumal is a small beach-front vacation resort community 100km (62miles) south of Cancun, between the towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico.  Many tourists who want a beach vacation choose from Akumal vacation rentals for their accommodations.

Akumal means "place of the turtles" in the Mayan language because for centuries, the great sea turtles have come to the fine white sands of Akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay.  Turtles can be found in Akumal laying eggs on the beaches at night throughout the nesting season (April to July) or swimming in the main Bay during the day. 

Akumal, the site of several Spanish galleon shipwrecks, was officially founded in 1958 as a community for scuba divers when they were looking for Spanish treasure.

Many of the villas and condos to rent in Akumal are oceanfront or beachfront and many of them have pools and other great amenities.  Try renting from an owner and choose from the many Akumal vacation rentals for a unique and unforgettable Mexican holiday.
