This place was amazing! First off- the best view EVER! You need a car to get around. We rented from Cancun airport, Easyway rental- they picked us up from the airport- drove to our rental place and we were off. Easy Breezy. We had great directions for the drive and it was easy. Be careful of the topes (speed bumps) and watch your speed- it changes radically, always stay in the slow lane. Police know you are in a rental because of the color of your plates, however we were never pulled over or had any trouble whatsoever. (During our stay we even drove at night from Chichen Itsa and got to Akumal around 11pm. but honestly I don't advise any night travel). Anyway, we got to the rental and it was very clean, (nice sheets btw- not cheap) bed was comfortable. Excellent air conditioner and room fans. Adequate plates, silverware, towels, coffee pot, pans etc. I went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of crashing waves. You have a gorgeous view from the living room and the bedroom of the ocean crashing on the rocks below. There are just rocks below - no sand beach, but you can walk a short distance to a nearby beach and also look for turtle nest on you walk. Great place!! One of the best parts was meeting JP. He was the caretaker and was excellent, professional, and really went above and beyond. He speaks English well and even arranged a private tour for us of a nearby cenote. He picked us up and drove us to it and he was extremely knowledgeable and so much fun. He even sent us pictures he took of our tour. Amazing person!!! Next, there are 2 great restaurants within walking distance....La Buena Vida .. a very cool place on the ocean with swings at the bar, a tree house and some of the best food ever. We ate breakfast there six times and were never disappointed- and food was very inexpensive I think we spent less than 10 USD for 2 people for breakfast. We did also eat here one night and had a blast. The bar was hopping, great music, fun people, drank a few too many Zombies, but met lots of amazing people. The other place was La Lunita... it is just a few steps from the condo on the beach. We ate dinner there 3 times (get the Snapper) truly amazing. My favorite meals were there, but they are a little on the expensive side- but remember expensive for Mexico . I think it was about 25.00 with tip for two- with dinner and 4 Sols (Mexican beer). Also make sure you hit Akumal Beach. It is gorgeous, ignore people trying to sell you tours. The water is great for snorkeling- calm, beautiful and reefs are excellent. You can also rent life jackets, fins, masks etc. We brought our own masks and snorkels though. You will love this place... forget all the touristy spots..seriously this place is it!
Yal Ku Cai on Half Moon Bay offers a quiet retreat from the craziness of Akumal Bay. The staff is amazing. Ocean waves lull us to sleep and Beautiful Sunrises are viewed each morning from our balcony.
