***EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC!! Ethereal beauty, white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, coral reefs, turtles and abundant sea creatures, prehistoric ruins, serenity—this is the Maya Riviera and Playa Caribe #4. Ahhhhhhh....let it work it's magic on you!! Playa Caribe #4 is a second floor luxury-but-affordable-unit with 2 bd 2 ba that provides the ultimate in privacy. Yet has fabulous VIEWS OF BOTH aquamarine CARIBBEAN AND verdant JUNGLE; only the side units offer both these views. It is spacious and considerably larger than the center units. We hear no pool noise in our condo so it really is tranquil. Our condo is just steps from the ocean, and you have the ability to watch turtles and rays cavort in the bay waters below. The condominium Playa Caribe is generally considered to be the BEST condo in Akumal because we are unique with enticing amenities like CENTRAL AIR so that you really are cool during the hot days and warm nights, RO PURIFIED WATER from all taps so you can drink it directly just like at home and not get sick, a stunning POOL on the beach.
Our Playa Caribe #4 is newly redecorated in soft Caribbean colors and textures of Mexico and the Caribbean, with three custom-made stained glass windows, a Mexican mask collection, and many pieces of Mexican cultural art, it gently brings Mayan ambience into your life. Both bedrooms have private balconies that look directly onto the jungle, and a third balcony is off the living room looking onto the beach where you can dine or read while watching turtles and rays swim in the ocean waters below. There is FREE fast, dependable wireless internet service.
The unit sleeps 6: the master bedroom with a comfy king bed (and high thread count linens) has views both of the sparkling ocean and the lush jungle, with an ensuite full bath with tub/shower and two sinks. The second bedroom has two double beds with romantic mosquito canopies and a full bath also with tub/shower. Each bedroom has its own balcony. There is a new 50" SMART TV in the living room.
***Walk the beach at sunrise and sunset, watch for turtle egg laying and hatching, drink a margarita under a palapa, read the book that you’ve been meaning to start, forget your troubles under the stars, and peacefully dream about your next visit to enchanting Akumal and Playa Caribe #4.
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooktop, microwave, convection and browning oven, refrigerator, many small appliances, serving dishes, spices, cloth napkins, and candles—everything to make your stay enjoyable . . . . and memorable. Dining is at the breakfast bar or at the dining table, with magnificent views. There is daily maid service (you do not need to do dishes or make your bed if you don’t want to!), 24-hour security, and room safe. We are concerned about our environmental impact, and have been awarded the CEA Ecological seal of approval for environmental protection.
Playa Caribe #4 is located about an hour drive's south of the Cancun airport off the 307 main highway, 40 steps from the water on the sandy beach in the charming seaside village of Akumal. Playa Caribe is within walking distance of gourmet restaurants and breakfast cafes, and abounds with activities like snorkeling or scuba diving on the offshore reefs, swimming in the unique cenotes, tours to Mayan ruins, or siestas.
Akumal is a peaceful resort, away from the maddening crowds of the “touristy” cities, yet has all the amenities you could want including many water and eco-jungle activities, delicious dining, bars, and comfort. The condominium itself has only 12 condos to preserve the small town atmosphere.
The Maya name Akumal means “land of the turtle” because turtles actually do lay eggs and hatch here during the summer; this is an incredible life affirming experience to watch.
Other activities: The village of Akumal is only 20 minutes drive south from the glitzy Playa del Carmen, which hosts the ferry to the island of Cozumel, and has many activities should you desire to leave your tranquil life in Akumal for the day or evening. The Maya ruins at Tulum are only a 20 minute drive south of Akumal.
***Beginning Nov 1, 2016 we will no longer include the MX tax in our rates, and will begin adding it to the price of the condo.
*****We have additional rates for stays of less than 7 nights AND for a 1 BD 1 BA configuration during HIGH SEASON where you get the entire condo except for the guest bedroom. No one else is ever in the second bedroom.
Easy access to the Tulum Maya ruins, riotous Playa del Carmen, the ferry to Cozumel, Chitzen Nitza and Coba, and snorkeling or swimming or diving in the sea just outside the condo. We love to SCUBA dive, relax in a quiet atmosphere that still has the amenities we want. Restaurants serving delicious and artful foods, many located right on the beach, are within walking distance as is shopping.
