We have just got back for 15 nights in Mexico, 8 of which were spent in Akumal at Playa Caribe. It was our favourite part of the holiday and Playa Caribe played a huge part in making it so incredible.
We stayed in number 12, with a sea view. The condo was huge, and we enjoyed turtle spotting from our balcony. It is a 20-25 minute walk from town, but it's a safe easy walk so not a problem for us. Augustine is beyond helpful too, and will rent out bikes if you want them. (we did every day!) We soon got into the habit of strolling into town in the evening via La Buena Vida for happy hour - there is also a shop opposite for beer and other essentials.
The beach outside is patrolled in the evenings by turtle protection people - we were woken up at 5.30am one morning by our security guard, who took us out to the beach to see a turtle laying her eggs.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful place. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and I would go back in a heart beat.
