The Rivera Maya invites you to swim and play in the warm crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea just steps away.
You can snorkel straight out to the Mesoamerican coral reef or just relax and sip mohitos by the pool.
Swim with the famous turtles of Akumal Bay. Akumal means "land of turtles" in Mayan.
I even have fins you can borrow.
This newly remodeled condo, has a full kitchen complete with everything you need to cook if you want to. Including a stove, fridge, microwave oven, coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, expresso machine, toaster, juicer, mixer, cuisinart and that all important blender to make those frozen Margaritas!
We are next to The Oasis Resort, "The Calm Resort" as they call themselves. As a condo owner, I get a discount on a day passes, spa services and rental smart cars which extends to my guests. It includes all meals and all drinks from 9am to 6pm for $60 usd. Plus access to the gym, spa, day beds, various pools, children's area and pool, and various activities like yoga and volleyball.
But, honestly I think an even a better deal, you simply dine in one of their restaurants for a single meal for 250 pesos. Try the Italian Restaurant, Dos Lunas, it is great. or Sarape for Mexican food.
Thats about $13usd for everything you can eat and drink. The evening show is also included if you have dinner. Best deal in town. Dinner, drinks and a show for 13 bucks? What?
The condo can sleep 4-5.
There is a comfy king for 2 with a trundle bed for a child.
There is a futon'sofa that converts to a twin bed for an additional adult or child.
There is also a blow up air mattress and hammock outside on the terrace. Additional guests above 4 require a surcharge.
As guests of condo owners you are also able to get 20% off spa services. I got a blissful facial for $67USD which included use of the sauna and steam room.
You can also get 10% of smart car rentals.
You can explore the culture of the Mayan Ruins in nearby Tulum to the South, and the night life and shopping of Playa Del Carmen just minutes away to the North. Akumal is really the best of all worlds.
Cenotes (underground river caves) to explore, snorkel and dive. Scuba diving tours abound, it's a 20 minute walk up the beach to a nearby casino. Water adventure parks Xel Ha, Xplore, Senses, Xcaret Eco theme park and Cirque du Soliel.
There is so much to do in the Riveria Maya Or you can just chill.
