O Espaço

A 1st/ground floor studio with private back patio on peaceful Half Moon Bay in North Akumal. Walking distance to Yalku lagoon and Akumal Bay beach. Beach access through La Joya Condo. The patio is great for bird watching, and the bays and Yalku lagoon for snorkeling. Akumal Bay is well known for the sea turtles that you can easily spot while snorkeling. Amenities include linens, towels, drinking water, wifi, daily maid service for an additional fee. There are ceiling fans but no AC, and no TV. Please see "Getting around" below for the direction.

The studio is maintained by a management company that also manages La Joya. Upon arrival, go to La Joya reception for a key to the studio. If the reception is closed, the contact information is on the door of the reception. The security guard for La Joya will get you the key after the reception is closed. Be sure to look for him since he may be walking around the buildings. It is best to let the host know of your approximate arrival time in order to alert the reception. The host does not live in the area.

Getting from Cancun Airport to Akumal:
Akumal is about 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of Cancun airport on Riviera Maya coast in the state of Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Mexico. It takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes by car or shuttle from the airport. Even though your destination is my Simple and Clean Studio, you need to tell the shuttle driver that you are going to La Joya in Half Moon Bay/Akumal. There are no addresses or street names and people know where to go by the name of the established condos.

By Shuttle Service

We have used USA Transfers (Cancun Airport Transfers) with excellent results. You go to the website below and make a reservation. For Hotel name, enter La Joya Condos, Half Moon Bay, Akumal.
They will pick you up at the airport and drive you to Akumal. My studio is across the street from La Joya Condo and is managed by the same people who manage La Joya. If you purchase round trip shuttle service, the shuttle will also pick you up at the studio and take you back to the airport on the specified date and time. The gas price has gone up in Mexico last year and as of February the shuttle round trip charge is around $170 plus you tip the driver in cash.

At the Cancun airport, there are many companies offering ground transportation at a fixed price per person. Prices change frequently. Signs indicate that you must purchase tickets for ground transportation at the stands inside the airport (after clearing customs). Sometimes (particularly off season) you might be able to negotiate a better rate outside on the curb.

By Car
There is only one road from the Cancun airport to Akumal, Hwy 307, the coastal highway. It is a well-constructed 4-lane divided highway from Cancún all the way to Tulum. When you get out of the airport area and come to the highway, go South (right turn) towards Chetumal. The major towns after the airport are: Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal (and then Tulum). From the Cancún airport, it takes about an hour and 15 minutes to Akumal. After passing Puerto Aventuras and their overpass bridge, in about 10 minutes look for a sign for Akumal and a pedestrian bridge over the highway. They have the unusual left turn from the highway into Akumal so please remember the following:
IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP: The Akumal resort is to the left (East) of the highway. As you near Akumal, stay on the left lane. As you drive under the Akumal pedestrian bridge and the overpass bridge, go another 50 to 100 yards on the left lane that will turn in to a U-turn lane into the on-coming traffic. Make a U turn and go back 50-100 yard and turn Right towards the entry way to Akumal.

Drive along the road, you will soon see Super Chomak supermarket on the right and in front of you, a narrow turtle "gate" entry to the resort of Akumal. Akumal means “place of turtles” in Maya. After you pass the narrow entry, you can only turn left (North). Continue on towards Half Moon Bay. There are many speed bumps called TOPES so drive slowly. You will pass La Buena Vida restaurant with dinosaur skeletons on the right. Drive for a few more minutes and look for La Joya Condominiums on the right side of the road. Park on the lot across the street from La Joya, and check in with La Joya reception. They are expecting you. If you arrive after 6 pm, when the office closes, they give La Joya security guard an instruction for the key. My building is across the street from La Joya, first/ground floor.

By Taxi and Bus

There are only shuttles and no taxis from Cancun Airport, but you can take a taxi to the airport from Akumal.

Unfortunately we don't have much experience arriving in Akumal on public bus from Cancun to Akumal so please do your own on-line research.

There is a 1st class bus, ADO to Playa del Carmen (half way to Akumal) from the airport. It seems to run once an hour or so. Once you arrive at the bus terminal in Playa del Carmen, you can take a taxi to Akumal-Half Moon Bay for a lot less than the shuttle. You can take a taxi to Tulum and from Tulum you can get ADO bus to a large city like Merida.

For your return trip to the airport, you can take a taxi from Akumal to the airport for about $80. Day before your departure, go to the taxi stall by the main entrance across from Super Chomak supermarket and make an arrangement with a taxi driver to pick you up at a certain time.
Taxi rates along the coast are fixed, but be sure to agree on the fee before you start. Remember to include a tip in cash for the driver. Taxis are available in all towns and most tourist destinations, so if you don’t plan on renting a car, it is possible to travel by taxi. You can even hire them for the day. The driver will wait for you and may even make some good recommendations.

On foot from highway bus stop in Akumal
When you get off the bus at Akumal, walk on the pedestrian bridge to cross the highway. It is about a 1/3 mile walk to the archway entrance of Akumal from the highway, and then another 1 mile to the studio. You can usually find taxis by the archway if you want to ride the last leg. Notice Super Chomak on the right. After passing under the arch, and if you can resist not taking a peek at the beautiful white sand beach and palm trees of Akumal Bay, take an immediate left and continue on the road for about a mile. After you pass Buena Vida restaurant on the right, in about 5 minutes, start looking for a condo called “La Joya” (pronounced La Hoya). Go to the manager’s office at La Joya for the key. My studio building is across the street from La Joya. There is no sign to our building. Our unit is managed by the same people who manage La Joya. The studio guests have the access to the beach through La Joya, but not to the swimming pool.

Please see "Getting around" section for the direction to the studio from Cancun airport. My studio building has no name. You have to go by La Joya Condo across the street. La Joya is located on the mid-section of the half-moon shaped bay.

Outras coisas a ter em conta

You must let the host know of your approximate arrival time so she can arrange for your key to be given to the you when the reception is closed after 6 pm.

There are doctors and Akumal pharmacy very close by, Dr. Maria and Dr. Benjamin. English spoken. (URL HIDDEN)

This place was very nice and very spacious, bigger than expected. Cleaned every other day which was very nice. Across the road from the beach which was very nice for lounging, swimming, snorkelling etc. Wifi worked well and the ceiling fans kept the place cool enough, especially in the evenings with the windows open for a bit of a breeze. Great kitchen for cooking many meals. Nice back patio for breakfast, or just to hang some wet beach clothes in the sun. Kyoko was very quick to respond to any inquiries we had, and always helpful. Close by to a couple of good restaurants and small shops for snacks and drinks. About a 15 minute walk to the main part of Akumal for groceries, the main beach, and more dining options. Easy access to the main highway for collectivos to Tulum or Playa Del Carmen. Would stay again.

It's a fantastic place for a great price. The place will fit two people comfortably and three if one sleeps on the couch. The kitchen is fully functioning so guests can cook their own meals if they don't feel like going out. Definitely nice to wake up and get coffee immediately and enjoy it on the patio facing the jungle with trees blooming and birds chirping. If you want the indoor temp to be prefect 70 degrees, get a hotel room. There is no air conditioning. The fans and cross ventilation is what I prefer in the tropics anyway. The place is surrounded by other condos so it is very safe. The beach is a cross the street so you're close enough to only bring a towel and snorkeling gear. A warning, that has nothing to do with the condo - the beach is very rocky and is difficult to get in without water shoes. If you want a smooth beach it is about a mile to the south in the town of Akumal. Which is no problem, but then you have to do more packing. Definitely rent a bike to get around. It was irreplaceable since the condo is about a mile from the center. However about two hundred yards south there is a little shop with basic necessities. I loved the place and would def mutely stay here again.

Our ten day stay in Kyoko's studio was terrific from the moment we arrived and was handed the key by the friendly La Joya security person, who obviously had been expecting us. The studio was as depicted in the photos, and even felt a little larger, with seating area, kitchen area and dining table on one level, and the bathroom and bedroom area three steps up. Although there was no AC, the ceiling fans kept the air moving and made the studio quite comfortable. The private patio out the back door was really great, as it was large, with a table and chairs and clothesline, and beautiful, backed up to the jungle. There was always plenty of hot water to enjoy the large shower, and adequate kitchen equipment was provided (including what appeared to be a brand new gas stove) for us to cook several dinners and breakfasts. The staff at La Joya addressed any questions we had, tidied up the studio and changed our towels several times during our stay, and even changed our sheets once. The beach - including shaded tables, chairs and chaise lounges - was only about 50 steps away through the La Joya complex. Kyoko's studio is also centrally located on Half Moon Bay, within a 2-5 minute walk from two good restaurants and two mini convenience markets, and only a 15-20 minute walk from the Akumal village with multiple shops and restaurants. Kyoko's studio is a great place for a couple to stay!

It's a great little condo, very comfortable, well furnished and decorated. Although it's not right on the beach, the arrangement with La Joya condominiums across the road works perfectly. The beach is only a few steps away and they supply everything you need. The snorkeling is great. We especially appreciated the back patio for quiet morning time and the low key social scene. We rented bikes for an easy and enjoyable way to access the town. We'll definitely be back.
