“Thx RONA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Last week approx 75 Canadian folks representing RONA home improvement stores jumped into the library and painted everything in sight. Adding a few murals, nice seating arrangements, new shelfing, etc. Also, a basic basketball court was installed, though the surface is rough limestone, it should be useable after many happy little feet tamp the rock.
You should see the delight and happiness in the faces of the ninos. Good work and thanks.

“We love to visit Hekab Be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This little library in Akumal also serves as a community center and school for the folks in Akumal. Children come to learn to read, write and do math free of charge. This place is run solely on donations but somehow manages to continue doing their good works.
