Hotel Akumal Caribe (March 2011)

Planning your trip to Mexico and trying to comb though all the options and decide on a spot? Want all the amenities without the impersonal touch of an all-inclusive? Maybe thinking you want to help reduce your carbon footprint by picking a smaller, family-owned, eco-friendly resort?  Oh, but as much as you want simple, local food and a casual bar, you also want the option of something a little more upscale for dining? No problems—this resort offers all of the above, right on the premises.

Ahh, if you could have all that AND literally be steps away from powder-white, long, sand beaches, a quiet bay with snorkeling, kayaking and palm trees to read under. What more would you possibly want?

How about shops with some exquisite art and jewelry, diving tours right from the property, oh, and depending on the time of year, turtles nesting and hatching? Let's add a bay where juvenile turtles swim and feed just below you as you snorkel by.

And if you have kids, you probably will want some activities for them. Done. Now, you ask, where is this little piece of paradise? Well, it should be no surprise that it is the oldest family-owned vacation property on the coast—Hotel Akumal Caribe, located in the heart of Akumal, between Playa del Carmen and Tulúm. Here you have options of Garden View Bungalows and Ocean Front Hotel Rooms. And the unique opportunity to become quickly more than just a guest. Before your vacation is over, you will be on a first-name basis with the staff and have the opportunity to meet some of the interesting locals and expatriates who call this home, while enjoying Happy Hour at the Lol-Ha Beach Bar.
