Perched on a living reef on the Caribbean coastline, the villa, Casa Caribe, offers all the traditional charm of Mexico; red tile roofs, the rustle of palm leaves in the sea breeze, and riotous stars, all with the breathtaking view of the ocean or jungle from every window. Hop on a plane to Cancun, rent a car, and drive one hour south to Akumal, and find yourself in the low key paradise you've been looking for! Does swimming in an aquarium sound good? Just a few minutes walk to Yalku Lagoon is recommended on a daily basis, to refresh your sense of natural living. There's world class snorkeling and scuba diving anywhere along the 250 mile reef; some of the best right out the back door! It won't take long to find a sea turtle in the water or a nest on the shore, as Akumal means 'Place of the Turtle' in Mayan. While you're sipping a 'cold one' and munching on chips and homemade salsa, the kids will discover the pizza parlor and ice cream vendor. Akumal is small, clean, environmentally aware, and just minutes away from Mayan ruins, caves, underground rivers, golf courses, and jungle expeditions. Dive shops, great restaurants, and grocery stores are walking distance from the house. This is the land of white sugar sand, reef outcroppings, and exotic wildlife, set on the turquoise coast of your dreams. Casa Caribe is a two story, walled villa, offering security, and complete privacy. The main house is 2500 square feet and decorated in Mexican style, with beautiful, hand carved furniture and original artwork.
