If I could give Las Casitas six stars, I would. Akumal is the perfect vacation destination, and Las Casitas is (to me) the perfect place to stay. The casitas are charming and the landscaping is beautiful. Each has its own private patio overlooking the beach, and some of the best snorkeling in the world is just steps away. It's nice to be able to make breakfast in your own little kitchen and have a variety of places to go out to for meals. We last went to Akumal more than 20 years ago and I was afraid that it might have been ruined by overdevelopment and too many tourists, but it still retains all its charm. It has definitely expanded with new stores and restaurants, but none of the new development is out of scale with the community and it has all taken place away from the beach. It remains a relaxed, tranquil place and not some crazy party destination. We liked all the other travelers we met there, which is saying a lot, actually. Las Casitas is beautifully maintained, very safe, and the casitas are comfortable and well equipped. Akumal is a great place for diving, snorkeling, relaxing, or exploring. All the restaurants were top notch and we never had any worries about food safety. Can't recommend this place highly enough!
