Akumal Area


Akumal Mexico is a small, casual, beach community located in the Riviera Maya 1 hour 15 minutes south of the Cancun airport on a 4 lane divided highway.  It is 30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen and 30 minutes north of Tulum.

 Akumal or “Place of the Turtles” is so named because it is an important turtle nesting area. Established in the1950’s as a little known dive destination, Akumal has matured into an unhurried and relaxed family vacation resort well known by the numerous American visitors who have been coming here to vacation for years.  Many of those visitors have chosen Akumal to build a vacation or retirement home and now make them available as an Akumal vacation villa rental. 

Akumal usually refers to the small residential, condo and all inclusive hotel communities of Akumal Bay, Half Moon Bay, Yalku Lagoon, Jade Bay, South Akumal and Aventuras Akumal.  These communities are physically joined together by 5 exits off of the highway and socially by the small commercial center at Akumal Bay.

AKUMAL AREA Villa Rental Locations - Jade Bay

Jade Bay is still a relatively well kept secret.   This beautiful bay still has gin clear waters, incredible corals and colorful tropical fish life just waiting to be snorkelled among.  During the summer months, endangered sea turtles still return after countless years of tradition, to lay their eggs on the beaches of Jade Bay. If you are lucky, you will be blessed in witnessing the exquisite natural wonder of droves of baby turtles erupting from their nest in the sand and making their way back to the ocean where they came. It truly an experience of a lifetime that will leave a lasting memory with you. 

The beach in front of the villas is a combination of sand and coral outcrops with the area to the south almost entirely sand.  An outer reef provides protection making the bay quite calm most of the time.  It is an ideal location for snorkelling and kayaking. 

While private and quiet, Jade Bay is only a short stroll along the beach to the heart of Akumal, with shops and restaurants, diving facilities, and much more. If you are the adventuresome type, discover the mysteries of the Ancient Mayan civilizations, go shopping along 5th Avenue of Playa del Carmen, take a deep sea fishing excursion, treat yourself to a rejuvenating massage…the choices are yours to make.
