Maya Riviera Escape| Akumal Villas

If your idea of a dream vacation includes stunning beaches, calm turquoise waters, friendly locals and luxury accommodations, our rental villas on the Mayan Riviera are the place for you! Just an hour south of Cancun, Mexico, 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen and 20 minutes north of Tulum, Akumal is a little piece of paradise! All of our privately owned vacation rental villas are located on a 20 mile stretch of coastline which includes Akumal, as well as South Akumal, Jade Beach, Puerto Aventuras, Soliman Bay and Tankah Bay.

These condos come with a fully functional kitchen, dining room, living room, two bathrooms, and two bedrooms. The perfect place to experience Mexico.

Located within a short car ride of the Akumal villas is Tulum Mayan Ruins.

It stands on a bluff facing the rising sun looking out on views of the Caribbean that are nothing less than spectacular. In Maya, Tulum means “Wall”, and the city was christened thus because it is a walled city; one of the very few the ancients ever built. Research suggests it was formerly called Zama or “to dawn” in its day, which is appropriate given the location. It seems “Tulum” is the name given the site following a visit by the explorers Stephens and Catherwood in 1841, just before the beginning of the Caste War in 1847, long after the city was abandon and fell to ruins. They ordered trees cleared and Catherwood made illustrations of temples, later to be published in their famous book “Incidents of Travel in Yucatan”. Juan José Gálvez is actually credited with Tulum’s rediscovery in 1840.
