One of the first homes to be built in Akumal, this massive Maya influenced hacienda style villa is the perfect choice for large groups and families. With over 4500 sq ft indoors Azul Riviera is perfect if you are planning a photo shoot, family reunion, seminar or just have a large group.

I have visited Akumal and Yal Ku Lagoon for more than a decade. I have rented 4 different Villas, some more than once, on the Lagoon. We were very excited to stay at Villa Azul Riviera because we could see from a neighboring rental that they had the best pool and Lagoon access. The house is large and has lots...

We came here with our family (7 adults) over Thanksgiving 2014. The place was absolutely incredible. First, we love Akumal. Its a charming town, friendly, great location, lots of cute shops. This is our 3rd time here and we decided to give Yal-Ku lagoon a try. We rented this villa for its private access to the lagoon and we were...

We recently stayed at this beautiful home located on Yalku lagoon, and it was fantastic. It is particularly great if you have a larger party - we had ten people/two families, and there was plenty of space for everyone, whether you wanted to hang out together or enjoy some quiet time alone. It was really clean and comfortable (including the...

About the neighborhood
Azul Riviera is located on Yal-ku Lagoon, and has easy private access to this enormous outdoor aquarium. Only twelve Akumal villas have backyard access to the lagoon. This calm lagoon has “gin-clear” water and many species of colorful tropical fish protected from the surf. In addition to lagoon access, AZUL RIVIERA also has its own private beach and it's own private swimable cenote in the backyard. A cenote is a salt water pool formed naturally in the limestone. The public beach, ecological center and scuba dive operators are near the highway entrance to Akumal, but the beach areas of Bahia Media Luna are a 5 min. walk. The Google Map will show the area much better. You can ask me for a terrific map of the area when you contact me.
