    Akumal is at the top of the list when it comes to Carlos Fiesta's favorite places to play along Mexico's spectacular Caribbean coast. This is just about as good as it gets for a beach destination in Mexico, or anywhere else in the world for that matter.

    Akumal is a stunningly beautiful beachside village located approximately 60 miles south of Cancun on the main coastal highway, Highway 307. It was the first settlement to be developed in the area that is now known as the Mayan Coast. Other destinations have been developed, but non match the charm of Akumal.

    This little slice of paradise offers just about anything a traveler could want or need on a Mexico vacation. Spectacular beaches, warm crystal clear seas, an offshore reef, a separate protected lagoon, lush surroundings and just enough development to keep Type A's from getting nervous.



    The energy in Akumal makes some people a little crazy. Take Carlos Fiesta, as an example. One morning shortly after waking up (after being over-served at the local bar during Happy Hour the night before), Carlos walked into the bathroom of the Akumal condo he was staying in and shaved off his mustache of 20 years. Akumal will do that to you.

    This jewel of a destination can be broken down into 5 main areas. The village is the first part of Akumal that most people see as they enter the resort. Due east of the village is beautiful and protected Akumal Bay. To the north of Akumal Bay is Caribe Beach, followed by Half Moon Bay. At the very north end of Akumal lies crystal clear Yal Ku Lagoon. Bring a snorkel.

    Akumal is usually not the first Mexican Caribbean destination that most visitors see. Cancun is often the first place most folks stay, and then they decide to search for solitude as they explore the coast south of Cancun. That's when they find Akumal. Some people find Akumal by accident...and never leave. One visit and you will see why.

    For more information drop by the web site of INFO AKUMAL.



    Lodging in Akumal consists of hotels, condos and private homes. The condos and private homes line the coast from the north end at the lagoon all the way to the south end of Akumal.

    The hotels in Cozumel are not like the huge mega-resorts that are common up north in Cancun. These hotels are all smaller and more intimate, which seems to fit in with the more relaxed pace.

    Most visitors to Akumal don't have a problem finding things to do once they have unpacked their bags and put on their sunscreen. But for those that just love a good list, here are a few suggestions from Carlos Fiesta.



      The waters in the main bay and in the lagoon at the north end of Akumal are perfect for kayaking. Bring a snorkel for extra fun!



      The sand is white and warm and even those who don't consider themselves Beach Bums seem to be able to enjoy reading a book on this beautiful beach.



      Take the road north from Akumal Bay and dip your mask and snorkel below the surface of the water at Yal Ku Lagoon. The waters are clear, calm and warm!



      Had a tough day in Paradise? End the day and start the evening at the large palapa bar just back from the beach on Akumal Bay. It won't take long for you to find out why they call it Happy Hour!



      Cenotes are one of the Yucatan's special wonders! Ask a local which cenote is their favorite clear water swimming hole. A fun mild adventure!



      Just offshore from Akumal is one of the largest barrier reefs in the word. Warm water, excellent visibility, tons of fish. Spectacular!



      Tulum is less than 20 minutes from Akumal and definitely a Mayan Coast treasure. Hire a personal guide for a few dollars and learn about the Yucatan Peninsula's history!



      The ferry at Playa del Carmen brings you to an island paradise where shopping, diving and a casual lunch make the perfect one day getaway. Carlos Fiesta's favorite Mexico island!



      With the right attitude Cancun can be a ton of fun. Plan an excursion up for a waterfront dinner, cocktails and dancing. The party will go on well after you run out of steam and head home to Akumal!



      Some of the most spectacular ruins in the world are just a few hour's drive from Akumal. Chitzen Itza is just one of several amazing ruins on the Yucatan Peninsula. Bring a camera!
