“Time away and not at an All Inclusive”
Reviewed March 21, 2009

We've been to the RM area of Mexico 5 times before this trip and had always stayed at All Inclusive properties from Cancun to Puerto Aventuras. This year we decided that we were comfortable with travelling in the area and wanted to try renting a condo on the beach for a week. We also felt we were ready to take the step to rent a car in order to have the freedom to explore the area. While we were in Mexico the previous trip we spent an afternoon in Akumal and thought it was a nice, quiet community to spend a week. So after extensive research we found a 2 bedroom condo on the first floor just steps from the beach. The condo complex, La Bahia, is located in the middle of Half Moon Bay which is on the north end of Akumal. The condo was roomy and very clean. The view from the living room was absolutely stunning! This was a wonderful change from the AIs because you rarely get an ocean front room without paying a ton of money. Another great aspect was we ate better this trip than any other before since we weren't relegated to the buffets or the specialty restaurants at the resort (which generally are mediocre at best). We tried a number of different restaurants and didn't have a bad meal at any. Our favorites were Loncheria Akumalito, La Cueva del Pescador, Lucy's, Naty's, and La Lunita. We took a daytrip down to Tulum and tried Zamas, but wasn't that impressed with it. This year we toured the Tulum ruins again but this time with a guide--we enjoyed it much more and learned lots of information which was very interesting. Also we went to Aktun Chen. It was kinda pricey but was a neat experience and good way to burn off a cloudy morning.

We had a wonderful trip and have already booked our flights to return in July. We are so glad we strayed away from the all inclusives to get a better feel for the real Mexico.
