When I first visited Akumal it was quite rustic, electricity was on and off, brown-outs were an accepted occurrence, and business was conducted face-to-face in most cases.
Over the years changes in technology have slipped into our everyday lives and are upgraded without a blink of an eye. However, along the Yucatan coast the changes have been even more noticeable. Palapa homes
have residents using cell phones. WiFi is now commonplace. AND
now, we are proud to announce, there is an app for your iPhone and
Android that puts information about the Riviera Maya at your fingertips.
Looking for a tour, a restaurant, shopping or accommodations? It
is all here, and yours to download for FREE. Akumal Villas has
developed a new app that will help their guests, owners and anyone
looking to find more information about the area.
It's perfect for owners and guests, with secure sections they can
log in to, to check on reservations and bookings or if they need
concierge help. The app is equally helpful for all visitors to the area and
complete with GPS directions. It is all here and FREE.
